Excerpt from a press release:

“The National Building Museum today announced that local bakery SakuSaku Flakerie will open a cafe in the museum’s Great Hall. SakuSaku Flakerie at the National Building Museum is a French bakery with a Japanese twist, inspired by the owner’s Japanese heritage. The Museum’s new café will offer its signature croissants, Kouign Amann, quiches and other delights as well as coffee and a variety of beverages. The Museum has not had a cafe since reopening after the pandemic-enforced closure in April 2021.

“We are committed to providing our visitors with unexpected and delicious experiences in what they see and do and now also in what they can eat and drink,” said Aileen Fuchs, President and CEO. “We prioritize innovation in our content and are thrilled to partner with SakuSaku Flakerie, an innovative bakery that also delights. We are excited to serve our visitors with this great amenity and attract new audiences to learn, explore, relax, shop and enjoy the best croissants in the district.

Yuri and Jason Oberbillig’s flagship bakery, SakuSaku Flakerie, is in Cleveland Park, Washington DC. Yuri, the baker, brings her Japanese education to her inventive, flaky pastry recipes. She grew up in Kobe, Japan, and finds her influence in the delicate flavors of her homeland while experimenting with new and traditional flavors. She brings over a decade of restaurant and bakery experience and brings attention to detail and sophistication to her puff pastries. Jason works alongside Yuri, managing the business and overseeing designs and marketing.

“SakuSaku is a Japanese word describing what it feels like to bite into fresh puff pastry,” Jason said. “I look forward to sharing our food with new audiences at the Museum and inviting our subscribers to experience the Museum’s inspiring Great Hall and captivating exhibits.”
