Brenner's would be a big hit even today. I wish someone in that family would reopen a store. I would love to duplicate that cake and icing on those birthday cakes they made. Does anyone know where I can purchase the exclusive cake mix and icing? I grew up with those cakes and pastries. I will forever miss them. Special bakery and memories.

My father, David Brenner used to work in these bakeries as a child. Im very interested in finding some photographs of the bakery. Especially some vintage pictures. Google only has 1 image and it is not very high quality. If anyone can help out let me know. Thank you.

Marcy,
I happened to stumble upon this review and I could not help myself. I started working at the Arlington location just after Hymie sold it to Gino and Randolf. I was there off and on for 20 plus years (more on than off). I left several times to learn different aspects of the industry. As you write this book I would be honored to contribute. I have all the formulas from the shop from the Bourbon Cake to the butter cookies. I have done a lot of technical writing and have upon occassion given the instruction to one or to people of how to assemble various things such as the Italian Rum Cake with the layers of puff pastry and how to make the egg custard. If you are interested contact me on FaceBook maybe I can help.

Marcy, we moved to Belleview when I was 6 months old, some of my first memories are of my Mom taking me to Brenners Bakery! The kind ladies behind the counter would alway offer me a cookie! I loved that place! Even after many years and moving away from Alexandria, I would make a point to stop at Brenners whenever I was in th area and pick up large amounts of Pecan Sandys, which are without a doubt the best cookies of all time. I was so sad when the store was sold outside of your family and then eventually closed...I would never have my beloved Pecan Sandy's again...unless someone, somewhere can get me a the recipe (or restart the bakery!!!!) Please Marcy, if you have the recipe I would love to have it (from one Hayfield Hawk to another!!) I thank the Brenner Family for wonderful, sweet memories!!!!

We miss those chocolate top cookies, and would love to have the recipe. I was born and raised in Alexandria VA and moved south to Stafford in the early 90's and every time I was remotely near Brenner's I would stop in and get some cookies. I also remember standing in line FOREVER for Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pies and Parkerhouse Rolls and it was worth the wait. You had to call in your order or you wouldn't be able to get what you wanted. Please let us know when you get the cook book finished, I would love to buy one

My father, Max Brenner, ran Brenner's Bakery in Belle View, VA since the 40's. My grandfather Louis Brenner came from Austria/Poland in 1913 and baked/sold bread out of a horse and buggy in Norfolk, VA. He had 6 sons, all but one got into the bakery business. Uncle Julius had Brenner's Bakery in MD, Uncle Hymie had the Brenner's Bakery in Arlington, VA and there are cousins in Belleview, WA who operated Brenner's Bakery in the Seattle area.
The bakery is under reconstruction in the original site with a new owner who is inspired to create a community bakery again! So stay tuned.
Melissa - the raisin bar you described was called a "fruit bar" and other favorites were chocolate drop cookies, radio bars, cakes, pies, breads ... so many wonderful yummies. I miss the bakery. Our entire family worked there at some point. My father retired and moved to the Outer Banks of NC in 1986 so it's been run by others since then.
There is a whole story here, and I'm writing it. I'm a musician and writer living down on the Outer Banks too. I have the family recipes and intend to translate them and work them down to a household kitchen size and publish them, along with the story of the Brenner family.
Thanks for your kind words and interest and stay tuned!

Response to Bonnie:

Chocolate Drop Cookies: Until I get the recipes sorted out, you can make the chocolate drop cookies by making a basic shortbread or butter cookie and use a cake decorating bag and star tip, squeeze a blob of dark chocolate buttercream icing on top. Doesn't that bring back memories?!

In our family, no matter where you were at Thanksgiving and Christmas you came home and worked at the bakery. Thanksgiving was mostly pies and rolls (just like Bonnie said!) and Christmas was fruit cakes and cookies and "fancier" things. My dad (Max Brenner) would be at the bakery for about 36 hours straight at the holidays. Sometimes he'd lay down on the flour sacks downstairs for a nap between batches. We'd get there and start packing orders on Nov. 25 and Dec. 23 and work through the night into the next day. Each year we tried to better the system to help folks get through as fast as we could, but yes Bonnie, the line was tremendous. People were always in great spirits and we would become giddy and it really is a fond memory. Fun to hear about it from your point of view! For my family, it was an honor to make food for the community. Feeding people is still my dad's way of expressing love. It comes from his mother Sadie Weiss Brenner, Bubbe to us. It was my dad Max's father Louis Brenner who came from Austria and began baking/selling bread by horse & buggy in Norfolk, VA landing at the Alexandria location in the 40's.

Thank you for your kind comments and memories. I think my dad continued what my grandfather started in a way that was special and a real part of the community there. I've been showing him these remarks people are leaving about our family's bakery. He's a beautiful man, 84 and living happily in NC.

Brenners Bakery, for many of us, was an anchor to the comforts of our past. I grew up near the Belleview store and during my childhood, a treat from there after shopping was the apex of a good day. Thanksgiving Day was looked forward to not just for the Turkey and Dressing, sweet potato casserole, and light as air mashed potatoes. BRENNERS PIES were just as looked forward to all year and just as much a tradition & splendid comfort as the rest. After college I lived in Arlington near other store. And incidentally the originally Five Guys was right next door. The hamburger buns were baked daily from Brenners... so light and fresh, to this day I've not tasted one as superb.

The signage was the same, the treats in the cases the same or similar, but when you would ask about or mention the Belle View Store while in the Arlington one BOY the tension was palpable. I was informed by a normally sweet older lady, that they were NOT affiliated with THAT BAKERY! I would love to know what happened to cause such a rift, but am grateful that for years longer I was able to get my hearts desires filled at both locations.

Brenners in Arlington did my wedding cake. Brenners in Belleview did my sisters 15 years earlier.

Amazing treats & goods- everyone had their favorites. Hermit Bars, Dutch Apple Pie, Radio Bars, and some other flat raisin "cookies" my Mother would buy along with our pies for Thanksgiving every year, but that I don't know the name of. She called them hermits as well, but they were raisin or dried fruit in between flat smooth top and bottom dough almost pastry like. Mmmm... truly unique; have never found anything similar, though now that I come to think about it more, they were like a flatter less crumbly almost lavash style newton. The came uncut, maybe folded? in big sheets.

(I'm not going to touch on the years following the sale; not pertinent! The Original Brenners is what I'm rating here!) :D

KJ: I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE BRENNERS HISTORY TRADITIONS AND RECIPES! I WOULD LOVE TO BAKE THOSE ITEMS! I'd love to eat them again!!! Sadly, I cannot eat Gluten any longer due to serious health repercussions BUT would love to have a chance to try to recreate them in my own kitchen! I am going to subscribe to followup comments here. I'm so very much hoping we can exchange information. I know there are A LOT of people who DEARLY miss your family's baked goods. Any info, recipes, etc. would be cherished.

I used to live on Columbia Pike in Arlington in the very early 1970's. Nobody had their own cars then, and I worked in DC - so went by way of the bus - AB&W. I would occasionally ask for a 'transfer' on my trip home in the evening. This would allow me to get off the bus and then get back on later the same day - at no additional cost. So I would get off at the old Brenner's Bakery - go inside and be intoxicated by the heavenly aroma of butter, sugar and vanilla...and then decide if I would get a big rich brownie, or a delicious cupcake - usually I would walk around outside in nice weather and eat my treat - while window shopping. Then I'd hop back on a bus and go home - and sleep off the sugar buzz. A couple years later, I met a guy and shortly after we became engaged. He chose his best friend as his best man- and he happened to be a member of the famous baker's family, so naturally we went there for our wedding cake. It was absolutely beautiful - multiple layers of buttery cake with pink frosting roses and surrounded by real flowers. They were a delight to work with. Times change, recipes change, work ethics change. And so it goes. But hey, my anniversary is today!!! 37 years ago - we had a wedding cake from the old Brenners Bakery on Columbia Pike. It kept us going all this time. Thanks for the memories.

K.J. - If Julius Brenner was your grandfather, you must have the recipe for the "locally famous" chocolate top cookies that we all grew up on. Will you please,please, please share it with those of us who have entire families going through "withdrawal"?

It's a great family run bakery! My wife and I have been going there for the past three years and everything has always been good. D is a very hard working owner/baker and I love chatting with him when I come by. nothing too fancy, just an old fashioned bakery.

I remember Brenner's Bakery when it was on Columbia Pike in Arlington, VA. I will be 66 in July and remember going there when I was about 10 years old. One of the Brenner brothers lived two doors down from us on So. 13th Road in Arlington. Always good pumpkin pies at Thanksgiving; wonderful cakes; and yummy donuts. Sorry they are no longer in that area. Sad to read these comments from others. It used to be a topnotch Bakery under the old mgmt. I remember Julius.

I got my daughter's birthday cake at Brenners today and it was awful. I paid $48 for a cake that looks like it was decorated by a 5 year old. My daughter's name was misspelled, although spelled right on the order form, and when they fixed it it looked even worse. This is my last visit to Brenners. Buyers beware, it is not worth the money they charge.

I got my wedding cake here (perhaps a mistake given the lack of books and examples of cakes they had done). The cake was cheaper than your average cake, though really not by much. And things were blatantly left out -- I paid $30 for fondant, and the cake wasn't iced with fondant. I also asked for mocha filling on the bottom layer, and that was left out as well (though it doesn't appear they charged me for that). Finally, I asked for pearlesque candies around the bottom, and specified I wanted something edible vice real beads. Well, guess what? As I was cutting the cake with my new husband, the knife got snagged on a strand of pearls just stuck on top! I don't want to sound like bridezilla, but if you have any standards for your wedding cake at all, I'd take my business elsewhere!!

This is not owned by the original owners of the bakery, my grandparents and relatives. My grandfather, Julius Brenner, was one of the original owners, from the 50s onwards. He sold the Columbia Pike/Glebe bakery back in the 80s, one of my uncles ran it for a while before turning over ownership around 1990. My grandfather passed in 2000, my grandmother in 2005.

The Belle-Vue bakery is also no longer run or owned by the Brenners, although the name remains. Hopefully, service will improve for those of you who continue to visit the bakery!

I was wondering if this is the same Brenners that was located on the corner of Glebe road and Columbia Pike ? I used to get alot from that store and it was the best. I don't live in that area anymore so I came across this location and wanted to know before I go over there if it's the same company. Thanks

Brenner's Bakery was the best bakery. Unfortunately, the bakery has been under new ownership, and the new owner (D Yim) does nothing for the bakery. D continues some of the same cakes, cookies, and other treats my family has loved over the years. However, the prices are high and he offers the absolute worst customer service.

Was willing to spend nearly $10 on a dozen cookies nowadays for my family's favorite cookie (the shortbread cookie topped with chocolate frosting) . Even paid approximately $100 to ship three dozen cookies to family that now live out of state. Sadly, a box of crumbs arrived on their front door step. D made no attempt to safely package individual layers of cookies in the actual bakery boxes, and instead blamed UPS for their shipping and handling. Furthermore, he said there was nothing he would do (ie refund cost of cookies, refund cost of shipping, resend cookies, in store credit for future purchases) to acknowledge and resolve the situation. To make matters worse, D commented how busy he is and that it was kind of him to even ship the cookies in the first place. All this comes after asking if shipping was even possible, and being happy to pay whatever the cost to surprise family with a taste of their past.

Brenner's Bakery will no longer receive our local business, and anyone that ever contemplated shipping please beware: it is not worth the cost nor is there any effort to safely package your order for shipping.

My family has been going to Brenners Bakery since I was a little girl. The bake goods there are to die for. I recommend the yellow cookies with the chocolate blobs on top. They are so addicting. My friend got my wedding cake through them to which was very good! Great place! I know they recently got bought by new owners, however, don't know how it affected business or recipes. It is located in Belleview. There prices are expensive....but worth it for a treat :)

This bakery has been around for a long time! My grandmother used to buy baked goods from this bakery way back when! I used to work here through high school and there were many customers that were regulars. It has since changed ownership which changed alot of things but the "goods" are still delicious!

I just wanted to express how disappointed I am that a local bakery has gotten new management and with the new managers have come steaper prices. My Granparents used this bakery, my parents used this bakery and now I use it. Everything is freshly made and they have an awesome cake designer. I would recommend this bakery to anyone. Even though the prices are high and we dont frequent there as much, the products are worth it!
