What People Are Saying

"The cupcakes were so soft and moist. Everything was really perfect: the texture, flavor, icing too."

- S. Matthews

"I am absolutely in love with this bakery. The shortbread is incredible, and beats any other shortbread I've had before. It's become the favorite of my very Scottish and shortbread-obsessed Grandma, as well as my bakery-obsessed Midwestern family (and both have VERY high standards). The only thing better than their shortbread is the people who run the bakery. Their service is full of kindness, and it's impossible to leave without a smile! So excited to see them continue to grow!"

- E. Krippner

"[The cupcakes] were amazing! I couldn't believe my tastebuds. I honestly cannot remember a better cupcake! Thank you."


"I am so excited I found this bakery! My first experience was sending an Irish loving friend and assortment of bread, scones and shortbread for their birthday. They were so impressed with the gift and couldn't stop talking about how fabulous everything tasted. So I decided to treat myself. Now I know why she was so enthusiastic about all the treats. I wish I could say what my favorite is but it's hard to choose. I love the breads in the morning and the shortbread later in the day."

Our Bakery

GreenIsland Bakery was founded in 2020 by owner Caroline Johnston when she realized how much she missed authentic Irish and European pastries, bakery goods, and breads. Inspired by a highly talented mother, who ran her own cake business while teaching students Home Economics, Caroline chose to follow in her footsteps. Luckily for us, the Johnston family has many closely-guarded family recipes handed down through generations! GreenIsland Bakery uses these recipes, and believe us, they're a secret for a reason!


As an International Citizen and Entrepreneur, Caroline founded GreenIsland Bakery with her roots and experience in mind. A native of Greenisland, Northern Ireland, Caroline spent years living all over Europe. From Ireland to  Scotland to France and then Spain, GreenIsland Bakery is inspired by Irish & European baking! Having lived and worked in the US for a number of years, Caroline decided it was time to bring a taste and fusion of Ireland & Europe to Washington, DC.
