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. 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 France to Scotland to Spain, GreenIsland Bakery is inspired by all things Irish & European! Now living and operating in the United States, Caroline has brought her lived experiences here to Washington, DC.




Our products are made with luxury, internationally-sourced ingredients to ensure maximum authenticity. As connoisseurs of Irish and European baked goods, GreenIsland Bakery management and staff know the importance of high value and, above all, tasty ingredients. You may even be reminded of your ma's homemade recipe that you thought could never be replicated! As memories and nostalgia pour in, let us take care of the baking and you take care of the eating! Just like home.
