1) Penn Quarter: The PAUL US flagship bakery has officially opened today in Penn Quarter. The French family-operated bakery with a long history (it got its start in 1889) offers seating for 50 in a café just near the US Navy Memorial, with plans for some outdoor terrace seating in view of the fountains. Artisan bakers will be using PAUL's seven-hour process to make breads from sourdough to seven-grain. But the bakery will also have pastries aplenty on hand in addition to a full-service coffee bar. And watch out, Georgetown—PAUL has plans to open a second DC location at the corner of Wisconsin and M later this year. Status: Open as of this morning. 801 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW; website [EaterWire]

2) Mt. Pleasant: Flying Fish Coffee & Tea opened its doors on Saturday with its much-discussed rotating pour-over coffee selections, teas from Art of Tea, espresso, lattes and other usual coffee shop menu suspects. There won't be a full menu, but bagels, croissants, muffins and other pastries from Maryland's Hawthorne Fine Breakfast Pastry. They've got a few small wooden tables, one larger and a nook in the window equipped with armchairs. Flying Fish also offers free Wi-Fi. They're cash-only today and until they can get things all set up at some point later this week. Status: Open. 3064 Mt. Pleasant St. NW; Facebook [EaterWire]
