Last night the structure containing Sub Rosa Bakery, at 620 N. 25th Street, caught fire. No word yet on whether the fire started in Sub Rosa Bakery or if the nearby Ardent Craft Ales was damaged as well.

Sad to see that Sub Rosa burned down last night. @FarmerRussell @RandallDoetzer @aaronhoskins @hagglundmn @ChefJohnny
Noooooo! I hope everyone is okay :(
Thinking of Evrim, Nina and the rest of #SubRosa this morning. So sad. #RVA #rvadine
Our hearts are with Evrim and Sub Rosa today.
^What she said
Nooooooooooo! I already addicted! Hope they recover.
This makes me so sad, hope everyone is okay!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. RT @chpn: Fire at Sub Rosa http://t.co/n6TxfGJdVW
This is incredibly sad news. My heart goes out to the owners. They make the best bread and croissants in town!
If there is anything we can do, please let us know. Hope y’all are as ok as you can be. RT @chpn: Fire at Sub Rosa http://t.co/EbV9yXZcEN
Holy kerap! This is a nice family who worked hard together to make what was fastly becoming a very popular and high quality Richmond Bakery. I selfishly hope they can quickly rebuild!
Any way at all we can help, we will. Love you guys and all you do.
All the best to SubRosa AND the folks who lived above in the apartment. Any news on them?
So glad no one was injured.
This is terrible. :(
How can we help?
Really sorry to hear this. such a locely spot and great for the hood. thoughts are with’em RT @chpn: Fire at Sub Rosa http://t.co/eg75bQRMiW
Just drove by to see damage…it is terrible!!
This breaks my heart! What amazing people with amazing talents. So glad everyone is safe and if there is anything we can do to help please let us know! We LOVE you guys and your breads!
Our hearts are with the gang at Sub Rosa. Tragic. http://t.co/NOQI5ynh6j
This is really awful news. We need to be prepared to get creative to help Evrim and Nina even if the building was adequately insured to fund restoration.
@VCUPav WOnder if Blaine has an alibi?
All thoughts and prayers. RT @CaMeKeMaRVA: I love the #rvadine community today. Thoughts going out to Sub Rosa Bakery
I am so sad to hear about this, but am glad everyone is safe. I’m glad to help in any way. Sub Rosa, Evrim, and Evin are an amazing asset to ch/uh!
Everyone got out of the building safely. The firemen were there ASAP and thankfully put out the fire quickly. It looked as though it started outside then spread up to the roof, the bakery itself was not on fire.
Bummed to read this morning Church Hill’s Sub Rosa suffered a fire last night. Benefit is in the works. Great place http://t.co/Wv43oCnnJM
@brmangas So sad. RT @chpn: Fire at Sub Rosa http://t.co/EZKzTOyKi8

I just saw Evin outside of Sub Rosa. She said that the idea is to get the building back up to code and get the bakery open again. The bakery space itself looks untouched, the damage is the apartments upstairs.
All of the folks from the apartments are displaced. If you’ve met Tony, a quiet older man & photographer, it sounds like he’s at the Red Cross. No word on his equipment.
Unless I am mis-remembering, they also did commercial trade baking in addition to the retail operation. I hope someone else in the profession will lend them some workspace so they can continue to service their commercial contracts while they rebuild.
Drove by on my way to work a few minutes ago. From the outside the upstairs apartment looks ruined but the bakery itself looks untouched. Of course, structurally it could be dangerous, but hopefully the lower part and the ceiling are structurally sound or are able to made so, so that these guys can get back to serving the community. The place was doing gangbusters.
What an awful thing to happen to such a great place and awesome people. Hearts are with them!
[...] the origin of the fire has yet to be confirmed, Sub Rosa co-owner Evin Dogu said the bakery is in good condition, with most damage sustained in the apartments upstairs. She hopes to reopen the bakery after the [...]
“@chpn: Fire at Sub Rosa http://t.co/LePAAy2Uoy” thoughts with our #churchhill neighbors!
Friends & Neighbors– I’ve set up a campaign to help get Evin and Evrim (and their tenants) back up on their feet! Please contribute and share!
this is terrible. hope they recover quickly.
My friend Alison lived in one of the apartments above the bakery. She and her roommate are okay and managed to get her 3 cats outside but as of now they are still missing. Wednesday is solid black, Little Man is a tall, skinny orange tabby, and Boy is white with orange patches. If you hear about or see any of them please get in touch.
If anyone has any info on how to help out the residents of the apartments (sounds like the Red Cross is a start), please keep us posted!
i’m so bummed to hear about this, and the damage looks terrible in the back, but hopefully we can all help get them going again ASAP!!

Sad news, love Sub Rosa.
Does anyone know how to reach out to these displaced tenants? I received word from someone who can help find them a new apartment or some temporary living arrangements, either way they could stay in Church Hill.
Does anyone know how to contact the tenants? I know of an opportunity for them to find temporary housing or a new apartment in Church Hill.
It’s such a shame to hear the recent unfortunate events affecting some of our neighbors and such a great (and delicious) neighborhood business. Those of us on the Hill Topper 5k Planning Committee would like to help both the displaced residents and Sub Rosa, who was one of our gracious 5k Sponsors this year. In addition to making a donation with some of our additional proceeds, we’d also like to help raise additional money for this charitable effort.
We ordered WAY TOO MANY 5k t-shirts this year, and we’d like to offer to sell our extras (over 200 of them) to anyone interested and donate 100% of our sales to the displaced residents and Sub Rosa. Our shirt features Sub Rosa’s logo on the back in addition to many other great businesses and entities within/linked to this wonderful neighborhood. So you can wear your t-shirt with pride as a sign of neighborhood solidarity and support that we all look out for one another. T-shirts are $10.
We’ll set up a table outside of Sub Rosa this Sunday (4/7) from 2:00 until 6:00 and the following Sunday (4/14) also from 2:00 to 6:00. If you can’t make either of those dates and times, please email us at email@example.com to make alternative arrangements.
The Hill Topper 5k Planning Committee
P.S. John, if we send you a file, can you post our t-shirt design on the website so folks know what they’re buying?
Watching for community initiative to help rebuild. Love this place!
@Hill Topper – yes!
Thanks to the firefighters!! They contained the fire beautifully!!
Great to see our neighborhood come together like this!
Way to go Church Hill community! So nice to see so many step up to help.
Evrim is very passionate about what he’s built. He, Evin and and their baked beauty will be back as soon as humanly possible. Meanwhile, the groundswell of neighborhood and other support is simply awesome.
I saw this posted on Dutch & Co’s Facebook. Hope it’s okay to repost this.

While we wanted to eat them all ourselves,
we decided to share the wealth.

Suggested Donation (cash only)
All proceeds go to Sub Rosa
The ever gracious Evin & Evrim dropped off the last batch of pastries waiting to be baked off at Dutch & Company. We couldn’t think of a better way to help out fellow business owners and dear friends by being a temporary outpost.

T H I S is the Church Hill I know!!! I mistakingly thought it was gone based on recent “discussions” on this site. Thank you everyone for setting me straight!!! When my nephews came for a visit, I always rook them to “the number one fire station” in Virginia and they got to see everything. Those firemen are the best.
I feel so sad about the fire, but I am so so so proud of my neighbors and neighborhood!!!!
John/ CHPN- Would it be possible to put Ashley’s comment (#42) as a separate post so people can get the word out about the missing pets? With over 70 comments, I’m afraid that important message will get lost.
Ashley- can you let us know HOW to get in touch? I will definitely keep my eye out!

[...] According to Church Hill People’s News, Sub Rosa is looking to reopen at the end of July or early August. So far, they’ve got a new roof, some new siding, and new chairs. Owners are excited to keep the momentum going and plan to throw a big re-opening party to help thank all the Richmonders who supported them after a fire forced them to close in early April. [...]
