The CakeRoom: what do users think?


A V: Ordered the raspberry swirl cheesecake and I can say that this is easily the best cheesecake I’ve ever had. Pistachio crust and the jam is such a brilliant decision! If you ever decide to come here please do yourself a favor and order this cake, you won’t regret it.

Taylor G: I've never written a bad review before, but I the cake I received is comically bad. The $70 cake I ordered had the wrong frosting, a misspelled name, and writing that genuinely looks like a kid wrote it (no offense to kids). I've ordered cakes here in the past and they've turned out great, so I have no idea what went wrong in the ordering and frosting of this cake. I went back to see if I could get at least a partial refund and they have a policy that the minute it leaves the door no refund can be issued. More than anything I just want to know how the cake I ordered turned out like that. Sorry to my friend whose birthday it is!

Tyson Haas: Came two days in a row on my DC trip. Cakes were dry both days. Don't waste your time on the cakes. The Lemon Bar was absolutely amazing, both days! The Lotus Cheesecake was also delicious, much better than the cakes. The cookies and Brookies were all delicious as well.

Ritu Upadhyay: I regularly pop into The CakeRoom to get my sweet fix, and it's always been one of my favorite spots in DC. Friendly service, great variety of treats (from cakes to pies to cookies) in a super cozy atmosphere. This year we ordered my five year old son's birthday cake from The CakeRoom and they blew me away. Ordering online was simple. They have so many design options, I found a look that integrated with the theme ("winter wonderland"). The outcome was perfection. Not only did it look beautiful, it tasted delicious. We had a lot of happy kids AND adults. Thank you, CakeRoom.

ko chanel: This is the inedible cake I paid 166 dollars for. The letters were uneven. I honestly think that they forgot about my order and did this in an hour. My dads birthday was ruined. I called these renowned “Kamala Cake Bakers” several times and got no response. When they did finally, answer they stated they give no refunds. I was in a rush to his surprise party and I couldn’t fully assess how horrible the cake was until I removed it from the box. I was placed on hold for an hour until someone finally hung up on me. Shame on you!!!! How horrible can you be! I 1000000 percent do not recommend please find someone else !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This place deserves no ones money

Amirah Prince: Would you serve this cake to Kamala Harris? You posted the cake you made for her with so much pride. It looked great. I guess since I am not a vice president my money must not hold the same value. My Dad could not even eat his birthday cake. I will not rest until we get our money back. 166 dollars for this horrible cake. This business is unethical. The person hung up on me when I called to get return the cake for a refund. They said they can give me the value back in cupcakes. I was placed on hold until I was hung up on YOU PEOPLE ARE EVIL. First time in my life I have been robbed!!!!!!!!!! The cake was dry to the touch. I refused to eat it. It was so dry. WHO made this cake. Did you a hire a helper for a day. 166 dollars. Horrible

Muniba Khan: I walked in while I was waiting for my friends in the area and left with a cafe au lait and a couple of cupcakes. I loved the coffee and could tell it was made with care. And the cupcakes were delicious! My favorite of the ones I tried was the lavender lemon cupcake, although the lavender flavor was a bit overshadowed by the lemon. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a coffee or some sweets.

ƐK dela Cruz: I had a slice of Peanut butter chocolate cake. It had a great balance of both, the cake was moist and very enjoyable alongside the free coffee or tea that they have readily available. Pricing could be better but also understandable. We’re definitely coming back whenever we’re in the area to try out more from this store!

Traveling Clown: Get there early or else you miss out on some flavors! Cookies and coffee available too! Super sweet icing.

Lexi Walters: We got our wedding cake from The CakeRoom, my favorite bakery in DC. Not only does the shop smell like heaven on earth, but the cake was amazing. We wanted a simple, great-tasting cake and The CakeRoom delivered (literally, all the way to Olney MD which was fabulous). All our guests loved it, and I'm incredibly jealous because in all the craziness of the reception my husband and I only got the bites we fed each other at the cake cutting (which tasted great). I plan on going to the bakery sometime soon to get us each a big slice to enjoy!

Buttercream Bakeshop: what do users think?


Megan Barnes: The cake of my dreams was created by Tiffany at Buttercream. When we did our tasting I was blown away at how I would be able to choose as every flavor was better than the last. She did an incredible job pulling our English garden vibe together for a beautiful cake on our wedding day.
Response: Thank you so much Megan!! You were such a JOY to work with. We are beyond grateful for word full clients like you!!!

Elizabeth Meltzer: These cream puffs were THE HIT for our small backyard wedding reception! We had a cake (not provided by Buttercream), but, it was overshadowed by these delicious puffs. Everyone asked where we got them, and kept going back to get more or try to choose one with a different flavor (we had mocha and vanilla). These are unlike anything I've had from anywhere else - just absolute perfection. Having something fancy and unexpected like this really made our unconventional wedding feel a little more special. I even had a friend sneak several into my car so I would be sure to have a few as we drove away (because you can be sure that there were no leftovers!) Thank you Buttercream!
Response: Wowowow! What an amazing review. Thank you for taking the time to share this. Honestly, the cream puffs are a staff favorite so I'm happy you love them as much as we do. (Pro tip - be sure to try the birthday cake cream filled puffs when we *finally* re-open)

Jane L: I ordered a Best of Buttercream Box back in August. Just catching up with my review now. Quarantine inspired me to try a lot of local businesses and discovering pastry boxes was a fun twist on ordering takeout. Buttercream's Best of box is offered every few weeks in advance online and you don't know what's in it until a day or two before pick-up. You know there will be 6-7 pieces and it costs $37. Check out my photos to see what I got. All of the pastries I got were high quality, rich, and delicious. For me, however, they were too sweet. I split each piece with my Mom and I still couldn't finish any of them in one sitting. I would have preferred a lighter touch. I think other people would be completely in heaven, though. The ordering and pick up process is super quick and I loved that the chef actually handed me my box with some tips on storing.

Chels Owens: Looooooooove their cake and cupcakes! These people are top notch and make high quality baked goods, you will not be disappointed. I got a gorgeous unicorn cake from them that was a huge hit with my friends and I got myself a cotton candy cupcake that was the absolute best.

Tina P: First, the customer service was really good. I was running late for my pick up and it was not a problem, the girl I spoke with was very nice. The cupcakes were beautifully presented and tasted great. I ordered the gluten free elderflower lemon cupcakes with blackberry jam. My boyfriend has an allergy, so we've been on the hunt for really good gluten free cupcakes. These were light, fluffy and moist. Will shop there again for our pastry needs!

nitubw: This is my go to bakery for special ordering celebration cakes! Buttercream makes it easy to order online and provide ideas for specialty cakes. My older daughter loved her Wonder Woman cake! It was honestly looked almost too good to eat. Almost. She had her favorite flavor, S’mores. They made my younger daughter’s Moana dream come true with her birthday cake which also incorporated her favorite flavor: Vanilla cake with lemon curd and strawberry buttercream (despite it not being on their menu at that time). The cake was the right amount of sweet and the buttercream was fantastic. My husband had also purchased one of their peek-a-boo cakes (Elderflower soaked lemon cake with blackberry jam and vanilla buttercream) for my birthday. Let’s just say this family of four devoured it!

Kay Chevalier: I was in DC for the weekend and my Airbnb was close to the bakery; I’m too embarrassed to admit the number of times I stopped in to get another treat. Everything I tried was amazing! Like AMAZING!!! Their savory breakfast roll was super. The one I had was filled with egg, cheese, & sausage. The Queen Bee was flakey and soft and buttery and sugary, a perfect balance. Oh my, I want one just thinking about it. Ps.- their unicorn hot chocolate is adorable!

Mackenzie Jandernoa: Super cute and friendly spot! The Reese peanut butter cup cookie bar was absolutely phenomenal and worth every bite. I enjoyed the chocolate chip cookie and the half brownie/half cookie bar as well, however, the funfetti cupcake was a huge miss for me; this certainly could be due to personal preference. It just didn’t have much flavor. More specifically, the frosting was super bland. Overall, it’s still worth stopping in and checking out the variety of treats they have to offer!

Kate Morton: Buttercream was good, the gluten free snickers brownie was tasty but I did hope there would be more gluten free options. My date said the triple chocolate cupcake was good though the icing could’ve been more flavorful.

Loree Lipstein: Cake is literally my favorite food... I've been known to eat upwards of 8 pieces of wedding cake at other weddings. I'm rather famous for it actually. So for my own wedding, the cake was one of the most important things to me. I wanted it to be GOOD cake above all else -- a pretty cake that doesn't taste amazing is not really cake! Buttercream knocks it out of the park on both fronts. The cake is as delicious as cake can get -- truly insane. And they offer so many amazing flavors! We ended up with three different ones because it was so hard to choose. And then on top of the cake being absolutely amazing... their designs are gorgeous. We did both a traditional beautiful cake and a fun groomscake that we designed special. Both exceeded our expectations. If you're in the DC Metro area, you must work with Buttercream!
Response: Congratulations!!! We were so thrilled to be part of your big day and this review is the icing on the cake cake. We LOVED both of your designs ~ thank YOU for letting us be a part of such a special memory for you and your husband (!!)

Firehook Bakery: what do users think?


Luke: I love this place. Excellent pastries, cakes, coffee, bread, and more. Seriously, DC is lucky to have this place. Staff are really nice and it's a comfy space to sit and relax. There's nice sunshine in the early morning at the sidewalk tables and window. Check it out!

Molly Cooper: I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! We both got an americano (one hot, one iced) with oat milk. It was only around $8 which for DC I was expecting way more. The people working were so nice! I also grabbed sugar to put in it but it didn’t need it at all! This is the best coffee I’ve had in ages! It made me so happy :) thanks guys!!

Trip Taker: This is a gem of a place! We went there 3 mornings in a row! Their sausage breakfast croissant is top notch. Cheese Danish is solid and their desserts are good quality. We tried what we thought was lemon meringue pie...turns out it was a passion fruit meringue. Not what we were expecting but good nonetheless. The customer service is good...right after walking in the door someone greets you and asks if they can help. Seems like a basic concept but post-covid it seems like it's not so basic with the new help or lack of help. Firehook is a must-try!

P. B.: Possibly the nicest coffee and goodies I have tasted in Washington.Excellent service, with friendly staff.Try the Almond Biscotti as treat for home.

Sonia Chlup: What a lovely bakery. Friendly staff, well priced pastries. Will be back before leaving Washington.

Mary P: Ordered two cakes here. Vanilla strawberry was very good 4/5 stars. The chocolate mouse cake- the mouse was delicious, but the cake was dry and had no flavor! Everyone agreed mouse was the only good part about that cake. Didn’t taste like chocolate at all 2/5. Easy ordering and pickup. They had no bag for two large cake boxes so bring your own. Also, one box had frosting on the bottom so we had to ask to be re-boxed so we wouldn’t get on our clothes. Would try again but not order the chocolate mouse cake.

Hanna Foreman: The coffee and pastries here are at great prices for the area. Highly recommend the lattes and cappuccinos here. The cookies are to die for and highly recommend the ginger cookies. Croissants here could be a little warmer, but the savory ones are generous with the cheese. The staff is always super friendly.

Manasi Kabadi: Love this bakery. They have so much variety. Their breads are really good too.

Maureen “SooHyunFan”: I got the lemon poppy pound cake because one of the workers said it's tasty. However, it's very dry and the texture is like that of sand! What a waste of money! Maybe some of their baked goods are good but the pound cakes are not.

Michael C: The cakes aren’t very good. Mine was soggy and tasteless

Praline Bakery at The Wharf: what do users think?


Austin Graff: Near Hilton's Canopy at the Wharf is a Bethesda-based bakery owned by two pastry chefs who met while working at the White House. Here's our experience visiting after ice skating (located at the other end of the Wharf): 1) Food: My four-year-old daughter and wife each got a macaroon- one chocolate and one raspberry. They both really enjoyed it. One makes for a great small snack, especially for a toddler. 2) Drinks: I ordered a small hot chocolate and loved it. It's thicker hot chocolate and less sweet. However, the thickness makes it very rich so a small was more than enough. 3) Space: It's awkwardly large for a pastry shop. However, the space allows for a few tables and plenty of room to social distance during the pandemic. 4) Service: The person working was not warm, but attentive so no complaints.

Philippe Jacques Kradolfer: The Praline Bakery seems large for the few products they had when we visited them. Entering it, as it looked like an European store from the outside, we were surprise at the very simple and kind of lack of personality of the store inside. Both main displays were basically empty but had great macaroons (specially the apricot and caramel ones!). Although the price per piece was rather high for the size of the macaroons, (smaller than regular macaroons) the taste made it worth the price. The day we were there they had Italian soft nougat bars in several different flavors. Although the price was also high the quality and taste was great!!! We bought several of these bars and we enjoyed them very much!!! The girls at the counter were less than friendly!!

BRWND Butter: If you've been to The Wharf in DC then you know it's filled with culinary gems. We popped into Praline Bakery for a snack, and we were in awe of the variety they had to offer. This cute spot specializes in French pastries and they did not disappoint! Follow us on IG for more foodie pics: @BrwndButter

Malinda Hollingsworth: Customer service needs improving! Please put friendly people behind the counter. The young lady working clearly didn’t want to be there. The owners of this place clearly are not present or involved. The red velvet cupcake was awful. It tasted days old. I wish I could have written a better review.

Sue D: Gross. Soggy, tasteless, tiny macarons for $1.95 each. There were lots in the display, but I was still given broken ones in a plastic clamshell by a woman whose mask was FAR below her nose. Hideous decor with angry political posters. The only bags they had were huge. There’s no excuse for such a terrible business. I’ll be shocked if they’re still around a month from now.

Mimi: The staff wasn't friendly at all. The first thing that you notice when walking inside is how dirty the white walls are! The bathroom was HORRIBLE! I purchased cookies before going to the restroom. Had I gone in the restoom beforehand I wouldn't have purchased ANYTHING! I really wanted to get refunded for my purchase but my husband didn't want to go through the trouble. So, we just trashed the cookies. What a waste of money! I just couldn't eat anything from a place with a flithy restroom. We visited early in the day, so I'm quite sure that it was like that the day before.

Bin_aujan: The shop is clean respected crew delicious Food The price is right All kinds of sweets are delicious I loved I recommend

Summers Journey: The customer service is very poor. It seems like the workers do not enjoy their job at all. Though the baked items are ok, I will not be returning to the bakery due to the horrendous customer service. No thank you!

L. Navarro: Great location. Ok coffee . Only sells cupcakes and weak sandwiches. Needs a better product before the upcoming Starbucks takes your most of your business.

Ashley Rhame: Here’s the thing, I used to love getting their s’mores cookie. I’d get them every time I’d walk the wharf for like 3 years. Then all of a sudden they never have them in stock anymore. They said they’d be back in January and I’ve yet to see them return.

Watergate Pastry: what do users think?


Jacob Meyer: Delicious Napoleon cake. Smaller selection than maybe pre COVID but very friendly & yummy.

Robert Freeman: Spectacular dark chocolate mousse. Probably the best that I have ever had. It was moist, decadent, rich, anything that you want in a chocolate mousse. And the decorations were so professional and sharp, it was a shame to ruin them to eat the cake itself! Definitely would recommend that you try any of their delicious pastries here.
Response: Wow! Thank you so much! Anton

Liz Casale: My favorite pastry shop in the US! My family has been coming here my whole life, maybe before I was born. They have some pastries here 5hat I've never had anything close to. (The Grand Marnier, amazing! ) I adore this place.
Response: Wow!!! Thank you so much!

Marcela Movit: My experience was absolutely perfect! The ordering and pick up process couldn't have been easier. The cake was just what my husband wanted for his 40th birthday. (He couldn't wait to have more for breakfast!) It was delicate and delicious. I can't wait to have an excuse to order again!
Response: Thank you!

Tommy Andrews: Anton and the team at Watergate Pastry are phenomenal! They created a custom Grateful Dead Tres Leches birthday cake that looked amazing and tasted even better. Thanks for making a surprise 30th birthday a great success!
Response: Thanks so much and thank you for taking the time to write! Anton

Alison Wright: Ordered some custom cookies, adding our company logo to shortbread-type cookies, and they turned out great (and were tasty too!). While picking them up we decided to try their chocolate cake, and it was amazing. Wow. So thanks again to Watergate Pastry, they did a great job for me yet again!!
Response: Thank you!! Always our pleasure to work with wonderful people.

CM S: I ordered a 10" tiramisu as a gift for a friend's birthday. She loves tiramisu and she said it was wonderful. I wish I would have taken a picture of it before I gave it to her - it looked yummy. Service was great and I am happy Watergate Pastry is still around. I am excited for when things are back to normal and we can visit and pick up pastries\cookies, etc. Thank you!
Response: Thank you!!!

Lauren Burlason: I ordered a pineapple upside down cake with balloons and paid to have it delivered to a hotel on Capitol Hill. I was told the cake tasted good but the rest of the experience was negative. The balloons were blown up by mouth...no helium and not floating. The icing writing on the cake was lacking. The receipt was ON TOP of the box!! For $65, I expected more, a lot more.

Janis Benson-EL: My first time here. It took me 45 minutes to find parking but I really wanted to come. Upon entering the bakery the lady was in the back and came out and was not friendly. She acted like I was disturbing her. Seemed like she didn't want to help me. The bakery did not have a large selection as I thought it would have. The few cake slices they had looked leftover from the day before. I brought a pastry. It was good but I will not come back again.
Response: Dear Janis, We are sorry it too you so long to find parking. We do have a parking garage and the first 15 min. are free. We are also sorry if our employee was rude. We will look into that. I assure you that our cakes and pastries are made fresh daily. We are glad you enjoyed the pastry that you bought.

stephanie: ordered a custom cake from here (mocha buttercream) and it tasted great. I spoke to more than 10 cake stores across DC, maryland, and virginia and watergate pastry offered the cheapest price for the design and size. they also did great with the cake design
Response: Wow! Thank you so much for the kind words. Happy to be of service!

The Bakers' Lounge: what do users think?


Scott Goldfarb: We had the best experience with Catherine and The Bakers' Lounge! We went to Catherine to design our wedding cake during COVID and she was so accommodating. We had a great tasting and then leading up to the wedding, she was incredibly communicative and helpful. She designed a beautiful two layered cake that was vanilla bean on one layer and chocolate salted caramel. Amazing!! Her cake design was a perfect match to our citrus themed wedding. Would highly recommend Catherine and the Bakers' Lounge to anyone who needs a wedding cake.
Response: Thank you so much. It was an honor to make your wedding cake .

Anna Turo: Holy. Cow. This woman is SPECTACULAR! She makes the most delicious food and is so wonderfully kind! The crusts are delicious, an properly done. The sausage rolls are actually sausage and seasoned. Just WOW! Also the Bakewell tart is scrumptious! **UPDATE! I went back and got more delicious sausage rolls and the BBQ beef pastry, holy cow, best BBQ pastry I have had in a long time!
Response: Thank you for your kind word.

Tatiana Cody: Our wedding cake turned out so beautifully! We're so happy with the final product, and our guests loved it! We appreciate all of Catherine's work, especially given all she has gone through during the pandemic.
Response: Thank you so very much. It was such a pleasure making your wedding cake. All the best .

Karen Chung: Catherine is wonderful!! She was responsive, helpful and made the process easy for us. The cake she made for us was amazing and our guests have been raving about it. It was everything I hoped it would be. I will def be going back to Catherine for any cake needs going forward!!

Grace Navas: The Baker's Lounge stands out as a British bakery in DC. I arranged for her to provide my milestone birthday cake and an assortment of individual-sized British cakes. Having seen the beautiful cakes she has made for others in the past, I gave her full creative license to create my centerpiece cake. The cake was absolutely stunning and she displayed all the cakes beautifully. I was advised by Catherine when I ordered the cakes that guests may choose not eat dessert. This was not the case at my party as I only got to scrape the crumbs and frosting from the bottom of the birthday cake platter. I was so thrilled that my guests enjoyed the cakes. I am fortunate that I can get British cakes whenever I want by visiting her shop.

Wren Chanell: Strawberry shortcake and strawberry champagne cupcakes were very delicious!!!! They were for my daughters 21st birthday and she/we loved them. Definitely would recommend and I’ll be getting all my sugary sweets from here from now on. 10stars
Response: Thank you, so much.

Kathryne Carter | Grace And Virtue Events: I love The Bakers' Lounge! Catherine is so awesome. We were instant friends. I love talking about how we see our businesses growing and developing. She always has ideas and is very supportive. She has a true passion for baking and interacting with her customers. Her high teas are so sweet, so schedule one if you can. And I love her pineapple upside down cake and blueberry frangipani!

A. Peters: Cake was not good. Very dense and heavy. Maybe the type of flour or time of day it was baked. The flavor was off as well. My guests were highly disappointed. If you want to try them out, sample first but don't buy blindly like I did.

Lauren Marcinkowski: Ordered custom cupcakes and they were outstanding. Catherine, the owner, was so easy to work with, the decorations were great, and most importantly they tasted incredible. I thought the price was very fair as well. I'll be coming back!
Response: Thank you, very much.

Am Ku: I really wanted to like this place. I was so excited that a bakery was coming to our area that had vegan options. But when I went on Saturday, they only had 1 vegan item, which they called a cake but was more like a very dense muffin (or maybe like a fruit cake without the fruit and nuts). I also bought my husband a caramel cake. The total was $11 for two, not particularly big, treats. We both thought they were fair, but not really anything better than what you can get in a grocery store these days. Just didn't really feel like it justified the price. Maybe there other stuff is better...
Response: The. Bakers’ Lounge is a British bake shop that has been in Brookland for 5 years and we pride ourselves in the products we make. We bake from scratch everyday, using wholesome ingredients unlike a grocery store. . The Arabella cake is gluten-free,Dairy Free and vegan dessert. It is not a cake, its a pudding, it’s a cross between a bread pudding and pudding. So sorry if you assumed based on the name. We are not a vegan bakery and don’t make a claim to that. Our Arabella cakes are $5 and our mini cakes are $3.50. Whilst our goal is to create an experience for our customers,allowing them to be able to “taste the difference” we know we can’t please everyone.

Rose Ave Bakery: what do users think?


Will Herbst: I showed up 10 minutes before it opened and waited in line for about 20 minutes total. This was one of the best breakfasts I have ever had. The bacon egg crescent was so good- the crescent itself was backed with ungodly amounts of flavor. The coffee milk tea is one of the most delicious beverages I’ve consumed. Passion fruit donut was wonderfully spongy. The passion fruit flavor really came across

Eric Finkelstein: Tried a black sesame doughnut, black sesame cookie, pandan coconut doughnut, ensaymada, and coconut mochi puffs. All excellent. The doughnuts were delightfully soft. My and my girlfriend's favorite was both the black sesame doughnut. Preorders were completely sold out, so I had this walk-in. I arrived 12 min after they opened, and waited in line 17 min to purchase.

Aisha Sees: I preordered the doughnuts on Sunday - process was smooth. I arrived after 1 on a weekday and there were plenty of street parking available. Picking up my order was easy but I did notice all the walk-ins were sold out by that time. Ordered 4 doughnuts: passion fruit, guava mousse, strawberry rose lychee, and black sesame. They were all good but the passion fruit one was my absolute favorite. Perfect balance of sweet and tangy, good ratio of filling vs doughnut (filled doughnuts are not my faves but these, I could do!). The dough was fluffy and light. I didn’t want to eat it all in one day so I refrigerated what I had left. Warmed it up a bit in the microwave the next day and it was still delicious.

Desiree Litchford-Rooney: Absolute heaven! I picked up a pre-order with Rose Ave on a vacation trip to DC so I wasn't able to try everything they had but I ordered a half dozen donuts. They were filled donuts with a tender brioche base and omg the fillings had me swooning! I got to try the black sesame (X2), strawberry rose lychee, guava, passion fruit, and pandan coconut donuts. I wasn't sure what to expect since people seem to shove any old flavor into a donut these days for the excitement, whether it works or not, but these flavors were clearly chosen with care and intentionality. My favorite was the black sesame - I had almost like a salted peanut butter flavor but more delicate, and the pandan coconut was so bright and balanced and just completely delicious, ugh I get butterflies just thinking about it lol! Also side note as someone who has worked in food, the way they packed these babies up without squishing a single one was flawless! Anyway if you're hesitant because of the preordering or the bumping crowd I'm here to let you know they're more than worth it!

Khoi Nguyen: This has become one of my favorite bakeries in the area. I'll drive into the city during the weekends just for their baked goods. Highly recommend checking their IG to check availability. I stopped by on a busy Sunday and ordered the Vietnamese coffee, matcha cookie, ube cake slice, Asian pear Kouign Amann, passionfruit, Pandan Coconut, and black sesame donuts. If you don't plan on eating it there fresh. Definitely take it home and toss it in the toaster or air fryer. If you get the donuts they are great after you nuke them in the microwave for a few secs. The Pandan and black sesame donuts were some of the best of ever had. The Kouign Amann is like a really crispy croissant with multiple layers and a fresh jam like compote inside. Really delicious, creative and definitely my favorite. The concept here is awesome like a fusion bakery. Strong French techniques and flavors from Vietnam, Philippines and other Asian countries. I'll definitely be back to try their other signature pastries.

Julia Hsia: No doubt my favorite bakery in the downtown area now… the croissant was a ma zing! 🥐The calamansi yuzu croissant was crazy. Although the egg white smell on the top was slightly strong, the taste was still good. The fruity sourness balanced the sweetness of the cream. Donut was great also, although I’m not a donut fan. I got a ube coconut one. The flavor was good! Definitely coming back again!

Kyndal Wilkie: Delicious donuts with exciting flavor profiles. Their donuts are light, airy, and not greasy. Our favorites have been the passion fruit, ube, and black sesame cookie. However, you won't find a bad thing on the menu.

Christopher Lew: The most popping establishment in The Block food hall in DC! Line was out the door, and we were wondering what everyone was in line for, and then I found out it was for the Rose Ave Bakery, which had been on my list of wanting to try forever!! Rose Ave Bakery is a local Asian American Woman owned bakery that has such a heartwarming story behind them. We ordered the Passion Fruit Donut, Coconut Ube Donut, Strawberry Rose Lychee Donut, and the Black Sesame Donut. The PFD was by far the most delicious with the passion fruit filling. It was perfect - not too sweet. We really enjoyed all the sweets we got, and we don't normally like sweets to begin with! Definitely arrive early, as the stock is limited, and by the time we got to the front, they were running out of certain items.

Kate Sutliff: Amazing bakery! Fantastic assortment of sweet and savory. Be prepared to plan ahead. Pre orders are the best way to get the items you want. Day of, the lines can be really long. Very friendly staff. We take anyone who visits us here.

Isabelle Ku: Sept 2021 This is a small place inside a small food court. There are 2-3 other places (the bar is closed due to covid), and Rose Ave Bakery's counter is very small, tucked into the far corner. The place is clean and there is a unisex bathroom by the bakery. The staff were also friendly, efficient, and the lady I talked to was a bit peppy too. All the staff wore masks. Most of the people in line were picking up preorders. It looked like the staff had all the preorders on a cart to the side behind the counter. Also, there were lots of racks of baked goods and a nice display up front of their available baked items. We ordered a number of pastries, cookies, and a slice of ube cake. The ube cake was very good, strong ube flavor, and the icing wasn't too sweet either. All the donuts were good, dense with a good amount of filling. Only complaint was too much sugar sprinkled on the donuts. The peach was also very fresh and very good. The scallion pancake bun was fluffy and tasty, but I was disappointed at the use of excessive spice which drowned out the scallion flavor. All the cookies were very good. In all, excellent food, if a bit expensive. Will most likely come back, but not regularly. I am very interested in trying more of their ube products.

Baked & Wired: what do users think?


Elizabeth Dou: I love coming here on special occasions and enjoying a cupcake or two with friends and family. Every cupcake I’ve tried has been such a treat full of flavor and just so moist. They really nail the cupcake to icing ratio. They offer seasonal coffee flavors as well as cupcake flavors. It’s a fun bakery with both indoor and outdoor seating. If you plan to stop by be prepared to wait in line. The line moves quickly and it’s definitely worth the wait!

Aminah Imani: You won’t be disappointed. Order them to go and enjoy them down by the water front. Great location, friendly staff and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Thank you!

Avonlea: One of my favorite spots when in DC. The cupcakes are so moist and your definitely getting your moneys worth! Before the pandemic the line would go down the street, but since they close earlier you can walk right in. They also have other treats other than cupcakes. Their Rice Krispies are very good! If in DC I highly suggest you stop by!

Jacqueline Telljohann: I'm really not a big cupcake fan, but a friend said I needed to come here, so I gave them a shot. My husband and I shared: - Razmanian Devil Cupcake - Strawberry Cupcake - Fig Newton These are hands down the best cupcakes I've ever had. my only regret is that we didn't get more. Make sure to check them out!

Sam Buck: Baked & Wired is out of this world! The cupcakes we had here were absolutely phenomenal and some of the best desserts we've ever had! We had the Coconut, Strawberry, and Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcakes and could barely finish them they were so filling. The inside shop was packed when we went in, and they were able to get us through the line quickly. The CPB cupcake was slightly dry and being right outside DC it's a bit pricey, but everything else was fantastic. 9/10

Yuri: When we arrived in the afternoon, most flavors of cupcakes were already sold out… I really wanted to try dirty chai cupcake, but I got one of chocolate flavor.(I forgot the name, but kind of nutty chocolate) It was sweet, but not too much, moderately moist, was good! I should go again!

Marina Ekman: I went into Baked and Wired on a Saturday near mid day, and was greeted politely by staff, so that was nice. I took a look at their menu on the board, and was surprised to see that there weren’t any prices posted. I then took a look at their foldout menus, and no prices on there either. I was finally able to track down the price of their cupcakes online (they were over $6 per) yet i was unable to find prices for their drinks (but that could be my error) I decided to order the coconut cupcake and a green tea, and my food was delivered to me swiftly! The cupcake itself was very delicious and rich, yet a little lacking on the coconut flavor, and the tea was hot and scrumptious! I definitely would visit again! Edit: I was finally able to obtain a biscuit from them (thanks to the lovely staff for their help!) and it was very tasty! The biscuit is a drop type soda biscuit with the ingredients mixed into it, rather than a layered biscuit.

Da-Wang Wu: A lovely little bakery with many different flavors of cupcakes. They also sell coffee and tea on the other side of the counter. The staff mentioned that carrot cake and strawberry are two popular flavors in their cupcakes. Carrot cake is pretty delicious, but strawberry is just okay for me. Although I don’t like frosting in general, my friend said that their frosting felt freshly made and he actually enjoyed it. Overall, the drinks and cake are a bit too sweet for me, but I guess it might be just fine for others.

Devin Boe: Best cupcakes in Georgetown (best I've had anywhere), good coffee, and great service. Cute vibe and never too crowded. Don't neglect their other baked goods! A little on the pricey side but you are paying for high end quality. Seriously the BEST cupcakes... amazing frosting, moist and flavorful, and some really fun creative flavors. The Dirty Chai cupcake + a good cup of coffee = heaven.

Munera A: In love with this place’ vibes 💯, we picked the vanilla cupcake filled with dolce de lice and the chocolate topping.. it was good but not the best! But the coffee was actually good!

Rise Bakery: what do users think?


Dumdi B.: I’m always on the hunt for good treats that are both gluten and dairy free. I was so happy to find Rise Bakery! My favorite was the vegan double chocolate cupcake and the vegan cookies and cream cupcake. Both went really well with unsweetened almond milk. Such a nice treat for date night. Thank you for the existence of this place!
Response: Thanks so much for your review! Glad to hear you enjoyed the dairy-free cupcakes! We focused on adding some extra dairy-free/vegan items to the 2022 winter and spring menus :)

Sadie Vogt: Absolutely delicious! In town for work so I had to stop here and try their gluten free options! Recommend to every gluten free person in DC who has a sweet tooth!!

Peregrine Sky: Cute, unfortunately no dine in at this time, progressive bakery. Lots of options for all kinds of dietary restrictions, soy, nut, dairy and all gluten free. 18th Street sandwich was amazing! These are certainly the best gluten free pastries I’ve ever had but they are still not delicious like normal pastries!

JT Mitchell: Both the Oreo cupcake and the apple fritter were pretty good. Both are also vegan. I’d say I like the fritter better. Had some good bite to it. The cupcake was tasty. Pretty solid.

Lauren Canaday: Loved my grilled cheese and vanilla cupcake 😋 gluten free done right! (I didn't get the ice cream or iced tea there - that's just the photo I took.) I used doordash to get delivery on a busy day of conferences.

Tee Cole: Recently gone gluten-free so I'm in search of bakeries that specialize in that option. Very friendly staff. The brioche bread was the best! Unfortunately the cupcakes were too dry for my taste and the strawberry pastry didn't taste like strawberries. We drove from NW Baltimore just to try it out. Can't say I'll take that 45 min drive again.

Anna L: Very very happy with my experience at rise. Got the 18th street sandwich - delicious bread with arugula, herbed Mayo, bacon, and tomato. I also got a cherry turnover that was amazing. Yet to try the cheddar jalapeño loaf and the strawberry cheesecake but they look great. Can’t wait to come back another time.
Response: So happy to hear you enjoyed everything, Anna. Hopefully we will see you soon

Danielle Somers: Hands down best GF bakery in the DMV. All of their baked goods are incredible and their customer service is excellent. We had our wedding cake made there and everyone sung their praises. Worth the trip!

Bad Birdi: Was traveling through DC and came upon this gem. I have celiac disease and I was literally blown away by the food here. The biscuits were the best thing I've eaten in a long time. I ended up spending oodles of dollars on baked goods and I'm so very happy I did!

LP: Cute little gluten free shop with additional egg nut and soy free options. First gluten free spot I’ve tried that is moist and flavorful. Yum! I got the raspberry danish.

Kogibow Bakery: what do users think?


Erringer Helbling: Incredible experience. Highly recommend if you want something local and delicious. He did a wonderful job making the most beautiful and deliciously light cake for my husband’s dinner party.

Daljit Kaur Grewal: Sooooo good. Ordered a tres leches cake with Bavarian cream for a 24th birthday. The cake was incredibly moist, light, and delicious, and so beautifully decorated with fruits. 8” was more than enough and very affordable at $25. I wish I could’ve left a tip. (Candles purchased separately)

Vincent Honn: Seen this Sign with a phone # on it in a Movie called" How Do You Know" while Reece Witherspoon was walking in front of it.... so had to Google the # ....lol!

Nata Portillo: Great Bakery , been buying cakes here for over 10 years now and still the same great taste and same great designs and everything, the owner and his worker are always on point amazing bakery.

nebur2k2: This Bakery makes awesome cakes. I have always bought my Kids Birthday for a straight ten years. You get for what you pay well worth it. You could currently place your order by phone, you pick up and pay at the front door.

Hai Nguyen: This has to be the most horrible bakery ever on the planet earth. For starters the owner all he does is watches over his parking spaces. He doesn't watch over the store but all he does is hang outside and doesn't let anyone park at his four empty parking spaces. I politely told him I'm going to go to your bakery store to look at your wedding cakes but he doesn't care. I noticed other cars are also trying to park there and he does the same thing to them too. I finally was able to find a parking space a few blocks down the street. Customer service was also pretty bad. The person cared more about playing with their phone than helping me out. Got a cake ordered and went to pick it up two weeks later. I had to wait 3 hours, seems like they forgot and wow, my cake was so embarrassing. It fell apart and the icing wasn't even dry. I think with my non-baking skills that never even baked a single cake in my life, could of done a better job than them. STAY AWAY!!!!

Dany Martinez: Cakes are delicious! But the reason I gave it a three star rating was because my mother went to pick up a cake and it turned out too big for her to carry. So she asked for help and the lady said "There's noone here to help you"...poor customer service...I see many different ways that could've gone

Solage Polanco: We order a cake there 3 day before the event. They told me to go and pick it up at 5 the party was at 8 I had to wait there for almost 2hour I guess they forgot about the cake. The color was the wrong color so the had to add more color, when I got home I placed the cake in the table went upstairs to get ready when I got back the cake felt apart. I cry ....I think they forgot about the cake and when they so me they started doing. I didn't have a cake for the event, and it tasted terrible because the cake icing was not dry.

Ethan Phung: Was a great place! I ordered a cake there was really quick to order, came by to get the cake a couple hours later and it was delicious, everyone ate a slice. Had to come back for more!

Monica Andrews: Kogibow is a small bakery in Adams Morgan. While the custom cakes look good, I go there for their avocado bubble tea. They've seemed to perfect the tapioca cooking time and have also refused to make the avocado tea when the avocados were not ripe enough, which I see as a true sign of dedication to quality. The mango tea is also quite good.

Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats: what do users think?


Christina S: Such a variety of vegan desserts. Loved their donuts (although not better than Dottie's donuts in Philadelphia). Texture's great, maybe a bit better flavoring. Tasted great, but the strawberry and cream didn't taste like strawberry. I also tried the triple chocolate, maybe it could use a glaze, but I'm really not complaining. Next time I'll try the vanilla glaze and any other new flavors they might have. I LOVED their fudge brownie! Not too fudge-y, not too cake-y. Perfect chocolate chip cookies! Excellent cinnamon buns too. We also bought their cookie mix we'll bake at home. I will definitely go back when I'm in D.C.

Dwayne Martin: Customer service was absolutely great. I was purchasing some treats for my vegan roommates birthday and they gave great recommendations and he loved it. Definitely will be coming back.

Jessica Williams: Love, love love! I’m severely allergic to milk. So this is really my only option if I want dairy free cupcakes from a bakery. The carrot cake cupcakes, coconut, and red velvet cupcakes are AMAZING!!!!! I know red velvet are around all year. I wish the other two were as well. I’ve been in heaven since picking up my order.

B Fletcher: I've tried various bakeries and sweet shops around DC since I moved here about a year and a half ago. For sweets, this one has impressed me the most. I never buy cookies from a bakery, because it's pretty hard to impress me with a cookie, but I just love the cookies from this place (s'mores cookie is my favorite!). The cupcakes are super tasty, too. I found the vanilla cake a little lackluster, but the red velvet and chocolate were some of the best I've had in a long time. When I want sweets, this place has become my go-to.

Megan: Customer service was poor. The employees didn't greet anyone or say hello, and seemed disinterested during the ordering process. I think we received a "what do you want" when it was our turn at the register. We ordered four cupcakes and a chocolate chip cookie. The cupcakes were average, not overwhelmingly delicious. The cupcakes had chunks of cocoa that hadn't been properly incorporated into the batter. Both the red velvet and yellow cake was sweet and super soft/moist! The chocolate cupcakes were super dry though. The frostings were flavorful with a nice thick consistency and really saved the cake. The chocolate chip cookie was amazing! This was the highlight of the items we tried. I would give the cookie alone 5 stars. Pricing was also very fair! $3.00 for most cupcakes can't be beat.
Response: Thank you for your feedback, Megan. Hope to see you back soon to try some of our other items.

Queen Afua: It was a treat in itself omg I had the matcha tea and an apple cupcake it was Heavenly and everything is vegan which is a plus for me

Risa Lewis: Can't speak to all the treats there, but the devil cake ganache thing that was suggested to me tasted almost entirely of baking soda :( The cake was moist and the sweet frosting in the middle was okay, but even the ganache was bland and sad. Maybe other stuff is better, but it was overall a flavor bummer.

Maria I: I had high hopes for this place and ordered a dozen cupcakes for work. I only tried the red velvet and the frosting was too sweet and the cake was not flavorful.

Carla Godoy: I have lived in Columbia heights now for over 10 years and have always seen sticky fingers bakery but have never actually been there. But now since I am a vegan, let me tell you this is the perfect place. The cupcakes are to die for, and so is the rueban with sweet potato fries. My favorite is the sticky buns on my way to college.

Edward Parsons: Was super excited to visited Sticky Fingers. I fondly recall watching the owner on Cup Cake Wars and pulled for her because of her vegan values. After a year of living in DC, I took my family to the store. My wife was given a piece of the double chocolate cake, and we had to experience the shop for ourselves. Expectations were high for Sticky! When we walked in I initially thought that the neo look was interesting...but after looking around the store it seemed to be randomness that I found difficult to connect with. When I order, the employee seemed to be rushed and somewhat annoyed. The store was not very clean. The products that I bought were tasty, but the entire experience left me wondering...is this the true Sticky Finger experience...? I hope not. I will be giving Sticky another try, but sometime you only get one chance to make a first impression.

Rick Garcia: They came through last minute with an amazing cake! A company canceled on me Thursday night for a Sunday event. I emailed Imagine Studio and they came through. They are very friendly and great customer service. Their cakes were super moist and beautifully done! Love this place. They also support the military!
Response: Glad we had the opportunity to help out! Thank you for your business!

Brandi H: We’ve ordered several cakes from them at this point. One time we actually were given the wrong cake but it worked out fine in the end. Since then we have always paid the extra $25 to have the cake delivered instead of picking it up. The cakes always taste amazing and always look good. I can trust that the pic I send of the cake I want is what I will get. The only thing I will say is that my last cake was delivered in a box that smelled like smoke, so I had to immediately take it out of the box and throw the box away. It did not affect the cake’s taste thankfully.

Mariama Y.K. Smart: I ordered a CocoMelon cake 3 days before a godsons birthday party and they did not disappoint. The cake not only looked good, it tasted awesome!!! I will definitely be using their services again!!!
Response: We are so glad you were pleased! Thank you!

Tiffany Balmer: they should change their name to cupcakes and customer service. The drop off of the cup cakes was top tier. I learned how to properly unbox cupcakes!!! thanks for taking the time to bake and teach. They were so cute and yummy. Thanks!!!

Corey Marshall: Order yours today you won't be disappointed! I have one slice left in the freezer from August and don't want to take it out until I have another cake in hand.DELICIOUS 😋
Response: We're so glad you are happy!

Malcolm Scott: I ordered a custom cake for my wife for Valentine's Day and she was very pleased with how the cake and decorations turned out. The cake itself was very tasty. My wife and I are usually not a fan of the thicker frosting used on these types of cakes, but we were pleasantly surprised with how much we enjoyed the frosting on this cake. Their prices were affordable and the delivery was right on time. Would definitely use them again.
Response: Thank you for your business! We hope to work with you again in the future!

Tesfa Seyoum: My wife placed a Birthday cake order 2 weeks ahead, my son likes vanilla flavor cake, he does not like Chocolate cake at all, the cake was suppose to be delivered at 3:00pm. What they did was very very sad, around 3:30 pm we were worried and started calling them becouse they did not delivered as they promised, and their was no answer, around 4:00pm I decided to go to the store, when I get to the store I found out the store was a fake address, the store was a convenient store it was not a bakery and the people who were their told me the bakery use the store to delver the cake only, they have no way of contacting the baker. The cake was finally delivered around 5:25pm, after we gave up on them and went and bought a cake from Wholefoods, in addition the cake was a chocolate cake we did not ordered. My son's birthday was ruined. If you want to have a decent program please don't order anything from these people. After my wife complaint via email, they decide to give us back $25.oo. Till now no body called and apologized or gave us an explanation for what went down.

whitney hurley: Made a beautiful cake that tasted amazing! The cake was bigger than I was expecting, but that’s not a bad problem to have. The design was exactly as requested.

Maria Zenquis: I ordered the 15 cupcakes and was delivered on sept 24. The cupcakes didn’t taste fresh and also I thought that all 15 cupcakes were going to fit in one box. Would I have known that I would’ve just order 12 . It was awkward to see two boxes and one box had only 3 in them . I’m addition you guys should really work on your packaging . It’s looks generic . I may have well just bought cupcakes from store rather than ordered them . Thank you . But I will not order again and will give your company a bad review

Blain: They deliver the cake 2 and half hours late after we finished the birthday celebration. On top of that, we ordered vanilla flavor, but we received chocolate. Very disappointing.

Seylou Bakery: what do users think?


Da-Wang Wu: First time buying from this bakery. The cheese scone and croissant were pretty good, but we didn’t enjoy the bird bread that much. I guess people who like nutty texture might enjoy it more. I ordered mocha, and the staff told me that I couldn’t adjust the level of sweetness because they used chocolate milk to make the mocha, which was a bit weird for me. Would look forward to trying some other breads in the future since they actually look pretty good!

Vivian Lu: This is a small local bakery, so I'm glad that we visited. Everyone was very nice. With that being said, I'm not convinced that whole grain works well for all baked goods, and I can't recommend stopping by. We had the croissant and although the crust looked properly flaky, it had the soft, wet consistency of under-baked bread inside. The quality of the bread also seems to vary day by day. The bread is good when it's good, but again, wet and under-baked on bad days.

dan altman: I really enjoy stopping by to buy bread when I'm in DC. It's great that they mill their own flour which is locally grown in some cases. A dough made with lots of water and natural leaven will require intense heat to help the bread rise. This can cause a slightly burnt crust, which I like. The reason for the 3 stars is that the bread can be inconsistent in terms of proofing or timing to be baked. This causes the dough to callapse creating pockets at the top of the bread and a dense more doughy bottom. Also, there doesn't seem to be any way to give feedback if you don't live local, so they can work on remedying the problem. I would hope for better at these prices. I think the owner may be one of the best bread bakers anywhere, but he has other doing the baking now. I will keep visiting Seylou Bakery, but next time ask they cut the loaf before buying. Hopefully they won't have a problem with my request.

Michelle Keller: Gorgeous bakery in a modern space. I had the buckwheat strawberry muffin, which was delicious. Excellent crumb, not too dense, with whole strawberries baked right in. I also had the vegetable frittata. The texture was divine, light and airy.

Christine S: Small local bakeries are all the hype nowadays, so I’d add Seylou to your list if you’re a fan of whole grain pastries and sourdough. I’m a croissant fiend, so I had to try their whole wheat almond croissant. Certainly one of the more unique croissants I’ve ever tried– if you’re expecting a flaky and buttery croissant, you won’t find it here. If you’re looking for a seemingly healthier and heartier croissant, then Seylou is for you. They could have done a better job with the frangipane filling. I also tried their savory monkey bread with spicy peppers and enjoyed the light sourdough flavor.

Ammar El-Taher: The freshness of their bakery, the mouth blowing taste & the consistency they provide each & every time you eat there is unmatchable. One great breakfast, coffee & tea place the you shouldn't miss

Mark Blanchard: Seylou more like Fail-ou. Ok I'll start with the staff. They're genuinely super nice and professional, which gets this cafe a second star. The food also looks beautiful. The rest though? Went there with a few friends and we tried several items (6 food items and coffees). Not exaggerating, but we all took a sip of the coffee and looked at each other like "this coffee is disgusting". Ok that happens, maybe a bad batch of coffee? We then dove into the pastries (6 of them). 4 of the pastries were inedible, and the other 2, we ended up eating them, but they were average at best. We literally threw out 4 pastries because they were that awful. I'm not sure who all is going to Seylou and giving it 4 and 5 stars, but have you been to other bakeries in DC? Or are we comparing to gas station pastries? Seriously we tried 6 items, and we literally dumped 4 of these pastries in the trash can. Oh, and 1 more thing... The pain au chocolat (chocolate croissant) is whole wheat. What!!!!!! I'm not eating a croissant to be healthy, I don't need it to be whole wheat. Plus you should really be clear that it's whole wheat, because it tastes pretty awful. In short, the staff is absolutely nice, but the food... just... Don't.

Nicole C: Absolutely loved the almond croissant! It had the perfect balance of sweetness. The aromatics and flavor of almond was very apparent. There was also a bit of a body to the croissant that I've never encountered before at other bakeries. Definitely would recommend it!

Breana's Toast: I´ve visited renowned bakeries all over the world and Seylou offers hands down the best bread and pastries I´ve ever had. You can taste the organic locally sourced grain in every single bite! Anyone who lives in the DC area is fortunate to have this piece of grain heaven nearby... And for anyone skeptical about their deep colored loaves, let me assure you that nothing is burnt, everything is baked to perfection. Can´t wait to be back for more!

Mark Woodward: In my view Seylou is the best bakery in the US. I mean that seriously. Everything is freshly milled whole grain and naturally leavened, which is how I like my bread. Seylou entirely disproves the perception that such breads can only be bricks. The quality is the same or better than from places that use bread flour or high extraction flour, and the bread and pastries are both more flavorful and more nutritious. I also appreciate that Seylou supports local farmers, not just by buying and using their wheat and rye, but also by turning other crops (such as buckwheat), which are important parts of organic grain crop rotation, into both breads and delicious pastries. Seylou has been inspirational to me in my own bread baking. 😀

Pluma by Bluebird Bakery: what do users think?


Vijay Joshi: I absolutely love Pluma. I steadily made my way through the menu after living nearby for a year. Their baked goods are fantastic (pistachio croissant and morning bun especially), but I really adore Pluma for their breakfast/lunch food. Having tried mainstays (Croque madame, avo toast, breakfast sammy's, etc.) and seasonal specialties (ramp toast, fried chicken sandwich), I was consistently enamored with the meals. Their breakfast sammy #2 goes craaaazy with the double fennel sausage, the Croque madame was the best I've ever had, and the fried chicken sandwich blew me away given the sheer proportions, herbal flavor explosions, and immaculate bread. Also, definitely try the hot sauces they keep by the utensils. Since they're a bakery, of course, their bread is top-notch, but they also source the rest of their ingredients exceptionally. While not cheap, Pluma always felt like a great use of money, unlike Union Market around the corner where everything feels overpriced. A couple of notes: they only serve food-to-go, and since the kitchen is not their main purpose, hot food can take a little while. Be patient, and good things will come.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words Vijay. This is why we do what we do, and we love to hear that the love and dedication that we put into our bakery is so well received. We hope to have you as a customer for many more years to come!

Hannah Hunt: Excellent cardamom morning bun and overall experience. There is a good variety of pastries available to order. This was my first time but I definitely plan to come back. The inside was also beautiful, really nice atmosphere.
Response: Thank you so much! We are so glad you had an enjoyable experience and hope to see you back soon.

Stephanie Carter: Very charming coffee shop. Cute atmosphere, but the coffee could have been hotter, and the quiche I had was just okay (though I think the flavor combo just didn't suit me). Savory scones were great!
Response: Thank you! We hope to see back again soon to try more of our pastries and discover which ones you like best. Insider tip: ask for your coffee extra hot 😉

Shane Seeman: Good slice of quiche and good mocha.Service was slow and inaccurate. Gave my slice to someone who ordered at least five minutes after me, and overheard they gave away someone else's whole pie to the wrong person.
Response: A bit short staffed this morning. Sorry for the chaotic moment. Glad you enjoyed the food.

Chanpen Tee: The place looks so nice and clean. The staff is friendly. And chocolate croissants is good. I will tey their coffee next time.

Celestino Garcia: This coffee shop is dope. The coffee is a great and the pastries are A1. Breakfast sandwich is pretty good too.

Shelbi Svoboda: Pluma is an elegant bakery that the NE didn't know we needed! The pastries are fresh and brought out of their open kitchen to the front counters throughout your time so there's always something new and fresh to try. The latte ($4) is possibly the best I've had in DC. The breakfast sammy has port belly, pesto, and an egg open faced on delicious - if hard to cut - bread for $9.5. I highly recommend the avocado toast with an egg ($5.5 plus egg). Seating is limited so probably not wise for a group over four.

Meg Voorhis: Upscale bakery and coffee spot in the greater union market corridor. Fresh savory vegetarian options and good bread, but a bit pricy (~$50 lunch for 4 items) and service from the made to order menu was slow.

Hannah Yoo: Best pastries in the city!! Seriously I always try to stop in for a bite then end up eating the entire pastry case. I especially love the croissants and morning buns, and they also have beautiful salads and yummy pizzas. Also love that it’s a small business owned by locals. Love spending all day here drinking coffee and catching up with friends on weekends. Neighborhood gem!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We love our customers and couldn’t do it without you.

Alex: This breakfast sandwich is honestly one of the best in DC. Freshly made bun + tender, sweet, salty pork belly + perfectly cooked egg. Amazing.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so happy you enjoyed and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Sprinkles Georgetown: what do users think?


Shanice Stewart: I absolutely love their salted caramel cupcakes! I’m not a big fan of the rainbow sprinkle cupcakes, because they are not fun to chew. Every time I go from here on out, I will order half a dozen salted caramel cupcakes because they are the best! Great Customer Service!
Response: We appreciate your support and hope to see you again soon!

Dia Berrios: Ugh I used love Sprinkles. Not sure if the recipes have changed due to Covid and the food supply shortages but they are not the same. Kind of sad about it. The strawberry was lacking strawberry flavor the only thing that had strawberry was the frosting. Everything else was decent. But for the price I was highly disappointed because there are so many other options in DC. I wont be returning unfortunately.
Response: Thank you for your review. Our recipes have not changed. We'd like to learn more about your Sprinkles experiencing. Please email marketing@sprinkles.com so that we can learn more and make this right.

chelsea gadiano: It was busy but the line goes fast because of the convenient iPad ordering system. The staff were very friendly and order comes really quick! The cupcakes are soooo good! We got red velvet and lemon blueberry! My husband and I loved it! Their cream cheese frosting is the best! Cupcakes are so moist and delicious! Packaging is super cute!
Response: Thank you for the amazing 5-star review! We appreciate your support and hope to see you again soon!

K S: 10/10 experience!!! I loved the contactless payment, good covid protocols and the amazing moist cupcakes. I’ve only had sprinkles a few times at birthday parties and I decided to go there on my own; one of the best cupcake stores in DC! The staff is superb and the cupcakes come out efficiently!
Response: Thank you for the 5-star review!

Ree A: I went there in the Mother’s Day, I found only 2 types available of cupcakes it was the first time to try sprinkles Georgetown and reallyI didn’t like the sugar cream on the top of cupcakes also the cake was dry . I don’t know if Im un lucky in my selection choices or they prepare all cupcakes like what I tried. The service was fast although the store was crowded.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our bakery. We bake fresh daily and can sell out. We always recommend placing a pre-order on our website (order.sprinkles.com) or app. Please email marketing@sprinkles.com as we'd like to learn more.

McKenzie Taylor: Decided to try Sprinkles after seeing the line (+ reviews mentioning unfriendly service) at Georgetown Cupcakes) and was not disappointed! The staff at Sprinkles was incredibly friendly and ordering couldn’t have been easier. There were a few customers ahead of me but the kiosks allowed for quick, simple ordering. The red velvet cupcakes were great but the pumpkin was my favorite!
Response: Thank you for your 5-star review and kind words! We hope to see you again soon!

Keli Wright: I always enjoy going to Sprinkles. I went right before they closed and there was no line, a lot of cupcakes were sold out but still a great selection. I have brought lots of people here too.
Response: Thank you for your awesome 5-Star review! We hope to see you again soon!

Stephanie Corte: I’ve been a Sprinkles fan for many years now. The red velvet cupcakes are my very favorite dessert. The cream cheese frosting knocks it out of the park every time. They are just absolutely delicious cupcakes. I recommend becoming a rewards members if you live near a Sprinkles location. I frequently get a free cupcake. This place is definitely worth a visit if you have never been.
Response: Thank you for the 5-Star review!

Carrie Crowther: My favorite cupcake spot in DC! They’re so light and not overly sweet. Definitely in for a treat, and you don’t have to wait in a long line. My usual go to’s are red velvet, banana, and dark chocolate!
Response: Thank you for your 5-star review! We appreciate your support and hope to see you again soon!

iisha hackett: Good variety, but not too impressive for a $5 cupcake. Icing too sweet, cake not flavorful enough..Cute shop, pleasant staff. Worth a try

John Toth: Pretty good! Breakfast sandwiches were tasty. The quiche was very good. Crusty and cheesy. Coffee was as to be expected.
Response: Thanks for your review! Appreciate your support of our business and mission.

Rebecca Opiela: I loved it! The staff was super nice and efficient. The space well clean and had a nice bathroom. Everything was wheelchair accessible including the front door and bathroom. The croissant was delicious too! I sat there and read a while and had a nice time.
Response: Thank you for your 5-star rating! So glad you enjoyed your visit, and hope to see you back again! We appreciate your support of our small business and our mission.

Alisha T: 🔥 Matcha cherry muffin with cherries inside 🔥 and their chocolate zucchini mini bread is very chocolate rich! Great loose leaf tea selection. Nice and cozy spot.
Response: Thank you for your review! So glad you enjoyed your visit, and hope to see you back again! We appreciate your support of our small business and our mission.

Karen Laska: Love this place!! Everything is delicious, but my favorites are the chocolate zucchini bread, the egg & cheese on a honey thyme biscuit, and the chocolate chip cookies. It’s a great spot for reading or studying, and the staff members are always so nice. Highly recommend it!
Response: Thank you for your review, Karen! We really appreciate your support of our business & mission.

Austin: OVERHYPED. The bakery is certainly tasty, however it is more of a cafe. I arrived on a Sunday morning when they were not busy and purchased both a breakfast sandwich and matcha cherry muffin. The muffin was not noticeable burnt, but it was slightly over cooked as the wrapping was sticking to the muffin and was burnt. The breakfast sandwich with the honey thyme biscuit is AMAZING which earned the three stars. The lady at the register was friendly and prompt to assist me, she spoke loud and clearly; something that is rare nowadays with the masks on. It was also $19 for an egg and cheese sandwich, muffin and a small latte… with oat milk which is like 50¢… I don’t mind paying that if it’s tasty, but it wasn’t.
Response: Hello Austin! We are sorry to hear your visit didn't go as well as we would hope. We hope you'll give us another chance, and appreciate your feedback.

Charlotte Rhea: it’s delicious! such a cool bakery and i highly recommend the cinnamon bun. it was perfect!
Response: Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your visit, thank you for supporting our business and our mission!

greg nyhus: Lovely, patriotic themed, and inviting bakery. The coffee is outstanding and the baked goods are awesome. Cranberry-apple muffins are generous and the cinnamon rolls are a full meal. Friendly and cheerful staff make the coffee stop or breakfast a great experience. Well done!
Response: Thank you for your review and your support of our mission!

Stephanie Adams: Great service. The nice lady who always takes my order takes her time to make sure I know exactly what I’m getting and what else might be good to try. They always have little samples which are pulling me towards a whole cake 😇
Response: Thank you for your review, we're so glad to hear that you enjoy stopping by the bakery regularly! We appreciate your support of our bakery and our mission. Hope to see you again soon.

Zee MW: Great spot to grab a quick bite. Nice environment.. the folks that work there are amazing. The food is pretty good. Definitely recommended if your in the area!
Response: Thank you for stopping by! We appreciate your support of our small business and mission. We hope to see you again!

Maritza Cooper: What a wonderful place to grab a cup of coffee and enjoy with a delicious desert or sandwich. Their decor is lovely. We went for a special Comedy night held by the Armed Services ARTS Partnership! The barista on duty did an amazing job of not only cleaning up for the nite, but set up the food and refreshments flawlessly. She made sure my 7 year old granddaughter was comfortable and well fed. I will be back. Love the idea of empowering Vets! And teaching them business skills to succeed after their service ! Great job Dog Tag Bakery!
Response: Thank you for your review and for supporting our mission! So glad you were able to attend one of ASAP's events as well - what a great organization!

Definitely recommend ordering with her.
Response: Thank you so so much Nicole and can’t wait for your birthday this year!

Shahla Abbasi: You know how they say no one eats the cake at weddings? WHEN LALA makes the cake at your wedding everyone will eat the cake! We were so happy with the cake at our wedding.

Bread Furst: what do users think?


Leslie Williston: this place is so cool! fun to be able to watch people make fresh bread. The pastries we fabulous. i would love to see a lemon scone. overall wonderful inside and out. cool market vibe inside too

Sedona Reilly: Stopped here on my way home from American University and it was hands down the best breakfast place I have been to in the city thus far. The store is so cute, there’s everything you could imagine in stock. The employees were so warm and welcoming, and the food was delicious. My mom and I left with 2 gourmet bagel sandwiches and a few pastries for the road. I will be making this a regular spot when I move to the city!

Tan Sav: Ordered online for pickup. It was easy and my order was ready quickly. This was around 9am on a Saturday. The croissants were buttery, flaky and delicious. It was bit smashed, but that didn't take away from the taste. I got the gravlox bagel. It was salty, savory and tangy. I had never been inside before so it would have been nice to know where the pickup orders were located.

Mark Blanchard: It was my first time at Bread Furst, and I'm impressed. Their baguette is top notch, the second best baguette in the DMV area, which is a bold statement. We tried a few pastries that were also delicious. I love the open area and how you can see them making the baguettes from scratch - great experience. The only downside is that around noon, they had run out of multiple items that we wanted to try, and also several pastry items were not labeled (no name or description) so had to ask multiple times what each thing was (they weren't obvious items, or if they were, the flavor wasn't obvious). Other than that, the patio is pretty, but you unfortunately inhale car exhaust from the car wash that's adjacent to the cafe.

Sticks Forks & Others: Stopped by today for the first time - a 30+ minute drive. Well worth the trip. Very impressed overall. Main goal was to get some canele, which is very hard to come by, especially the good ones. Wasn’t disappointed. Picked up a bag full and a chocolate croissant. All very, very good. The canele was firm and crispy on the outside and moist on the inside - just the way it should be. The same goes for the chocolate croissant - perfectly done with the perfect amount of chocolate. There is so much to see at the store. From pasta to peanut butter, you could spend hours eye shopping. There is parking behind the back and few outdoor seats in front and back of the store. Definitely worth the trip and worth revisiting.

Y B: Do you like the taste of burned toast? This is what the crust tasted like as I discovered the condition of the bread in the paper bag. Additional worth noting that not posting prices is a basic form of economic discrimination.

Dondré: Bread furst is a different type of bakery. Not only do they have fresh bread but they also offer a plethora of local pastas, sauces, dried fruits plus more. The staff is friendly and the options are plenty. There are options for outdoor dining as well which is always nice when the weather is great.

V Rossi: Their sourdough bread is incredible! 🍞 They sell sourdough starter for $3.50. I bought some and fed it once home and it tripled in size. A nice healthy starter. I did have to ask few people the first person I asked didn't realize they sell starter...

dwayne gulley: Late review but it was a must. Breakfast here is amazing. Very busy but worth the wait as everybody in here is visibly working hard. Manager or owner was walking the floor and stocking and recommended the mixed jars to mix alcohol with. That was a solid recommendation and a hit with my holiday crew.

Blake Ellis: I've never written a Google review before, and I don't want to sound like a total Karen, but I feel like I've gotten to the point where I have to add something here. I live close to Bread Furst, so I come here a lot, and every time I visit, I tell myself not to come back. Then of course I'm lured in by the great smelling bread, and I get frustrated all over again, so I guess I'm doing this to myself. I've probably been here between 10-15 times and I don't think they've ever gotten the order correct. This is just in reference to brunch food. When I've ordered online, they've forgotten to make the order completely (both times) and I had to order it again in person, which defeated any efficiency. When I've ordered in person, many times they've gotten the order wrong or have forgotten to put all the ingredients on or have forgotten to make it completely even though I've just put it in. The past few times I've visited, I waited for a while, and then someone looked over at me and asked what I was waiting for before explaining to me that they must gotten their wires crossed or something because no one had started making it. I wouldn't review with such vehement frustration if Breadfurst wasn't so expensive. But it's become a bit of a running joke in our house that the order will always go wrong when we come here. The pastries are great. I just don't think it's worth this whole ordeal--the mistakes, the very hectic lines, the insultingly pretentious staff--just for an overpriced and reliably cold breakfast.

Red Velvet Cupcakery: what do users think?


Sophie: The cupcakes are very pretty and the texture of both the cake and frosting was good. That said, the flavors were lacking. We got half a dozen. The spice cake was good but beyond that...eh. If they were cheaper I'd be happy to give them 4 stars but alas, as $3+ each, it's just not worth it unless you're really craving cupcakes and don't feel like baking.

Lylah Story: Red Velvet Cupcakes is located within another establishment. Which meant that they were open earlier than 11:30am, which was a good thing but I did not like the fact that it did not smell like cupcakes when I walked in😔. My inner PhatGurl was let down!!!

Eric Knapke: Purchased one of their daily special cupcakes which looked delicious. It was a mint cake with chocolate frosting. The frosting to cake ratio was spot on and the texture of the cake was great, incredibly moist. The biggest disappointment was in the flavors. The frosting had minimal chocolate flavor and I would have never guessed the cake was mint if they hadn't said so.

Lani: My last order was bad. The cupcakes here have too much variance in quality. Sometimes the chocolate cupcake is perfect, this last time the frosting was extremely bitter. I’ve bought the red velvet- The signature - and it can taste bland some days and flavorful other times. Summertime is another favorite and it’s been dry/stale before and moist other times. These cupcakes are way too the expensive to not taste that well. This last time was a waste of money. 5/6 of the cupcakes we bought just didn’t taste right. Unfortunately the quality has gone down. I’ve been buying RVC for 4-5 years, I used to frequent the location by the arena downtown. But this location one is not as consistent. I’ve visited this one 5 times. I probably won’t shop here anymore due to that disappointment.

Donna Bruce: 1. The woman on the phone who took my order was incredibly rude and kept calling me dear. 2. The order arrived through UberEats and was WRONG. I specifically requested certain flavor cupcakes which she said she would provide and then sent what she felt like sending. Including coconut which I did not order. 3. When I called to complain, I was told she did the best she could and that they were very busy today so she sent what she could. If she had been honest, I would not have placed the order. My biggest issue is when you spend $60 for 12 cupcakes and you don't receive what you ask for and are treated like I should be lucky she sent anything, THAT IS A PROBLEM. Will not go back to this Cupcakery again. Not the only game in town.

John K: I thought then did a great job either the combinations of flavors. The cupcakes were moist even at the end of day. The frosting was the perfect amount. Too much ruins it. I’d eat here again.

Aria Higgins: Left: Caramel Latte Cupcake (dollop of caramel in the center) -- moist but prob wouldn't get it again (too much frosting). Right: S'mores Cupcake -- 😍😍😍. AMAAAAAAZING! I love s'nores so this was right up my alley! Definitely would get this again! Downfall, no place to sit and enjoy...you have to go next door to the neighboring coffee spot but not a lot of seating there either. 😕

George Washington: I ordered/pre-paid a dozen 5 days in advance with specific pick up time per their request...the order wasn't ready and the the staff was neither professional nor apologetic. Overpriced for mediocre product and shoddy service. Won't go back, Georgetown Cupcake is just down the road.

Conchita Lawrence: I'm always looking for a great cupcake place. Still searching. Saw the mixed reviews on this site and I understand why. I got 2 red velvet which were delicious the icing is all of that. But I didn't fare that well on the carrot cupcake. While the icing is the same, very delicious and creamy, the cake itself was dry, not moist at all and seemed a day old. When I walked up, it's in a restaurant the sign says that they would seat you, I wasn't trying to be seated I just wanted to see the cupcake options and not on the menu. But overall the red velvet cupcakes are good.

Christina Johnson: So I went to the Red Velvet Cupcakery and didn’t realize its nesltled inside of another restaurant. No biggie though. Staff was friendly and the decor was cute. It’s a rustic city feel and I like that, especially in Chevy Chase. After purchasing several flavors, I was delighted to take them home to my girls and enjoy them for an afternoon snack. While I actually liked the cream cheese icing (on the carrot cake and red velvet flavors), the vanilla icing was a little bland. The cupcakes were dry...like very dry. Three of us felt the same way and these girls are expert cupcake eaters so they’d know🙂. I suppose if you just need a sweet tooth fix they’ll do but the cupcakes are a solid C- in my book. Good luck!
