Fine Food, Fine Pastries, Open 6 to 9 is a 1989 American short documentary film produced and directed by David Petersen.[2]


Owners and waitresses of Sherrill's Restaurant and Bakery, a down-home gathering place behind the Capitol, observed Washington and its denizens since the Depression as the film captures moments during a typical day in the very un-Washington Capitol Hill hang out, conveying the role of the eatery in the neighborhood as patrons discuss local history and politics.[3]


It was nominated in 1989 for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short.[4] It also was a first place winner in the American, National Educational, and Houston Film Festivals; and won a CINE Golden Eagle and Emmy Award.[5]
