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.

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.

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!

Sweet Crimes Gluten-Free Bakery: what do users think?


Haleigh Eppler: This store front is cute and has a very trendy but cozy vibe inside. The service was great and everyone was very willing to answer our questions. All allergen information is clearly indicated on the menu to allow for easy ordering. We had the ham and cheese sandwich and a chili brownie. The ham and cheese sandwich was delicious with cheese on the bread and in the sandwich. The chili brownie wasn’t super spicy but had a good kick in the after taste. The vegan members of our party enjoyed pumpkin bread and a chocolate donut.
Response: Thanks so much, Haleigh! We're thrilled that you enjoyed your experience and hope to see you again soon :).

Christiane West: We ordered a lemon sheet cake for my daughter’s confirmation and it was hands down the best gluten free cake we have had. And we have been gluten free for 10 years now and have tried many places in the DC metro area. Keri if very easy to work with and her shop has lots of fun options beyond the cakes!!
Response: Thanks so much, Christiane!! We’re so glad we could make Monika’s day special

Allison Nielsen: Normally, I wouldn’t gravitate towards a gluten free bakery, but we decided to get some Christmas cookies here and they were amazing! Really soft (my favorite type of cookie) and the service was so friendly here. The bakery is really small so there’s not a ton of room for sitting, its more of a grab and go situation. I am glad to see things are still going well and that people are loving this spot. I’d love to return for breakfast one day!
Response: Thanks so much, Allison. We really appreciate the feedback!

Austin Graff: Capitol Hill's first gluten-free bakery is here! Located on Pennsylvania Ave SE on the same block as the late Representative John Lewis' barber, Sweet Crimes is a small bakery with mighty products. Here's why you should visit: 1) Food: If you're not gluten intolerant, you may look down on gluten-free products, but don't with Sweet Crimes. They are among the best baked goods in the city and happen to be gluten-free. On opening day (November 22, 2021), I stopped in for an egg and cheese biscuit (I paid an extra $1 for ham), chocolate chip scone and a chocolate glazed donut. Each was flavorful and moist, especially the scone. I'm not a big fan of dry scones and this one had the perfect texture. So tasty! 2) Drinks: They have an impressive coffee list, including a s'more cocoa made with marshmallows, honey and graham crackers. My latte was well brewed and smooth. They also sell a variety of tea. 3) Space: It's small, but cozy. It's in a blue brick building with a mural painted inside. The window space has two small tables and a long bench filled with pillows. Behind the glass are their pastries and gluten-free cake mixes line the wall by the register. 4) Service: When I stopped by, two women were behind the counter. Both were genuinely friendly and proud of their work at the bakery. One told me she grew up just blocks from the bakery. 5) Story: This bakery is woman-owned. Keri is from Maryland and traveled the world with her family and in her career in international development. When she moved back to the area, she started baking gluten-free products and even picked up a few awards along the way. If you're into delicious baked goods and a hyper-local shop, stop by Sweet Crimes Bakery.
Response: Austin, thank you so much! I’m going to share what you’ve written with my staff without whom the magic couldn’t happen. We can’t wait to have you back for more treats.

Elliott Wooster: I had a really good cheese and egg biscuit, a latte and I couldn’t NOT get the donut. This place is amazing. All of the food I and my partner had was incredible and the coffee was brilliant too. But THE DONUTS. They were AMAZING. They sold out whilst I was sat here (10:30 on a Sunday) so make sure to get here early! The person at the counter said they’re still very new and figuring out how fast things will sell. Cannot recommend enough. This was all delicious.
Response: Elliott, thank you so much for the review and for supporting us!! Not only are we new, but I’m 40 weeks pregnant and my staff are working so hard to pull it all together as I’m forced to take a step back. They are my shining stars ✨

Kyle D: Amazing bakery with great food and great service! I came into the bakery this morning to get my hands on some of the sweet treats everyone is raving about and wow they did not miss. The donut, brownie and pumpkin bread were all fantastic. And to top it all off the lovely lady working the register and helping me was fantastic. Such warm, friendly service that leaves you feeling great about the day ahead. I can't wait to come back!
Response: Thank you so much, Kyle! We really appreciate the feedback ❤️

Tee Cole: Took the 44 min ride from NW Baltimore just to find gluten-free bakeries. The staff were nice, place very small but really cute. The cupcakes were dry, the pumpkin cake dry and only tasted like spice, carrot cake had no shredded carrots and was dry. The regular brownie was moist and I liked the chocolate chips but it had a cinnamon taste to it, which I don't care for. Can't say I'll make the drive again. The hunt continues...
Response: Hi Tee - Sorry you weren't into our stuff, but thank you for making the trip! Things can dry out easily in the refrigerated case, but this is not feedback we usually get, so I do hope you'll give us another try. We do put cinnamon in our brownies. I wish you had tried our sandwiches because our bread is excellent. Take care...

Tricia McGuire: Absolutely amazing -- give these wonderful people your business! Woman-owned business, gluten-free and delicious food, and an adorable atmosphere -- what's not to love?! Dana, the owner, not only treated us with excellent customer service, she treated us like we were friends. My mom and I are visiting DC from out of state -- we wish we could come here all the time. We loved it!
Response: Thank you so much, Tricia!! We hope to see you back in town soon, but we also ship 😁

Kate Cope: Visited this bakery for the first time on Sunday am - I didn’t catch the names of the staff but both were SO kind and welcoming. I had my two little ones with me & they let them taste a couple of extra treats :) The food was all incredible and the vibe/atmosphere is just great. I would highly recommend this bakery to not just those with a gluten sensitivity or allergy, but to anyone who enjoys delicious baked goods and kind employees. Definitely will visit again!!
Response: Thanks so much, Kate! My staff work really hard and we're thrilled to hear that you had a good experience. Our standard is "delicious even if you’re not gluten free", so I appreciate that feedback as well!

John Palmer: Great gluten free bakery and cafe. A little pricy but the cupcakes and pastries are wonderful
Response: Thanks so much, John!

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!

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.

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

Georgetown Cupcake: what do users think?


Abhinav: We were recommended this place by many as we were visiting DC. We waited in the line for 10 minutes to get in. The frosting of the cupcakes was great but the cupcake texture pretty average. $20 for half dozen cupcakes felt expensive. No need to try their beverages if it’s your thing. There are far better beverage places. Food4/5 Ambience 5/5 Service 5/5

Aisha C: As a tourist this place comes highly recommended but sadly I thought the cupcakes were just OK! I loved the variety of cupcakes and even opted for some vegan/gluten free selections but I was underwhelmed by the flavor and texture (which was more like a muffin). The cupcakes are very dense! happy I got to try it but would opt to go to another cupcake bakery in the future.

Carole Stewart: I would give them zero stars if I could. I ordered these on my visit to DC because I heard about them. When I opened the box this is what they looked like. I even had two vegan ones in it because of a dairy allergy. And there is no way I could tell which one was vegan. I sent two emails with pictures with NO response.$38 for a dozen cupcakes that look like this is unacceptable. This definitely is a tourist trap. NOT worth it!. Save your money.

Matthew Hsu: I heard about Georgetown Cupcakes and decided to give it a try since I was in the area. The line to get in was long. I waited for about 20 minutes. They have quite a bit of variety of cupcakes and all tasted pretty good. The packaging is quite impressive as well. The location is about an 8 minute walk from Georgetown University.

Ellen: This is based on mere preference, but I didn't like the texture of their frosting; it was too frothy. My friend liked it though. I liked the texture of the cupcake; it was dense. I was pleasantly surprised by the peanut butter frosting with chocolate cupcake. The coffee cookies n' creme cupcake had a strong coffee taste that I liked. The server could have been more helpful.

Kiki Fasbender: Georgetown Cupcake was fantastic. Our bus broke down outside (we think it was destiny!!) of their shop and they handled 33 of us like pros. I highly recommend the coffee toffee and my son loved the Dad Chocolate. We both washed them down with a big glass of Whole Milk. We love whole milk and were thrilled they had that as an option.

Wendy Gao: I've heard good things about this place but they didn't live up to the hype. The cupcakes were surprisingly dense, almost like a condensed cupcake or a muffin, definitely not light and fluffy. Taste wise, it ranged from pretty good to awful/weird depending on the flavor. The lemon blossom was the best out of the ones I tried, the cheesecake was great - although not really a cupcake it was more of a cheesecake base, and the lavender Earl grey was my least favorite. Most of the flavors was in the icing and not really the base. The buttercream frosting was really sweet to me, but the cream cheese frostings were pretty good and just the right touch of sweetness. I would consider getting them again, but wouldn't go out of my way for them again.

Renee Kar-Johnson: The best cupcakes I have ever had in my life. The new flavors really got me and made me feel some kind of way. I waited in line for a hour and a half and I would do it again. They ran out of tea so they even gave me a free cupcake. I can’t even imagine why people like baked and wired ;)

Jason Lin: Be prepared to wait if you didn’t order ahead. To us, their cupcakes were just okay/average. We visited Georgetown Cupcake on a Tuesday evening. There was a long line outside the door (as currently they only allow one party in the store at one time). It was a 50 minute wait for us (arrived ~5:35pm, got our cupcakes ~6:25pm). As they close at 7pm, and more people were still coming, one of the employees came outside a little after 6pm to announce that they only had very limited flavors left for the day. It was nice they did this. The ordering process wasn’t very efficient; the employee pretty much needed to explain to each group of customers about what flavors they still had. If this can be digitized on a display (with counts would be awesome) it would make ordering a much smoother and quicker process. As for the taste of their cupcakes, we felt they were just average. The bread part was on the dry/firm side. Their size was on the smaller end. Icing was okay; some flavors were too sweet and some were just right (we prefer not too sweet). Other than some flavors being nicely decorated, we felt overall they’re not that special and not worth $3.75 a piece. All in all, as it’s an extremely popular place, we wanted to give it a try. Now we have done it, will we go back? Maybe not, not with this type of wait line and this price - to us it’s not worth it. I’m sure a lot of people love their cupcakes, whether it’s because of their taste, decorations, or just name brand, but unfortunately they didn’t amaze us. It’s still good to see them become an iconic and successful business in this area and we still hope they continue to do well and serve many many more customers in the years to come.

Surprise Pikachu: I thought they were delicious, the strawberry was my favorite (frosting tasted like the häagan-daz strawberry ice-cream but soft and light, kind of melts in the mouth) and I enjoyed all the flavors. I waited 20 minutes and only went because I was curious to try them. I wonder if all these reviews saying they were just "ok" are just because people over hyped them and expected something magical? They are definitely better than ok, they are very good. I'm not a huge cupcake person but I do love sweets, and I would definitely get them again and recommend them. The frosting was incredibly flavorful and the ratio of frosting to cake was perfect for my taste. They also look very pretty. I think the price is reasonable, DC is an expensive area, and they are well known.

Sugar Fox: what do users think?


Andrew Miller: Had a great birthday cake. Sugar Fox came through in a pinch! The cakes do indeed have a good amount of sugar in them, and I think that works for me! I am pro-cake in any event and Sugar Fox came through on my birthday 🎂, with a cake that made a difference and tastes good with and without ice cream 🍦.

Lani: The ice cream sample was great. Unfortunately there was a hair in order.
Response: Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear that! All of our staff wear hats and hair restraints at all times while working, but mistakes do happen. Please reach out so I can refund your order and send you a gift card so your next scoop is on us: info@littleredfoxdc.com. Thank you. - Matt

B: Few flavours but they are yummy! I was afraid they’d have too much sugar but they got the recipes just right. Perfect.

Michael Kaplan: A great ice cream and sorbet spot. Nice parking behind so easy in and out. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The dark chocolate sorbet and blueberry ginger ice cream make a great combination.

Joshua Shedd: Their milkshakes are made the old fashioned way, it's not easy to do but very delicious!

Daryl: I swear this was the best ice cream/sorbet I’ve had in eons. I got the mint chip ice cream and the raspberry lime sorbet- the flavors were very clean and super bright. There were no weird aftertastes, at all. My friend got the strawberry crème fraîche and peach pie. Both were SO good- especially the peach pie. There didn’t appear to be any chunks of weird “crust” like many pie flavors do. Probably just my own bias towards pie that’s like 95% fruit and 5% crust but I digress.

Q: The peach pie ice cream was amazing. We could've finished a pint of that easily.

Alec Frazier: There are many, many coffee and pastry shops and other venues with light fare in the DC area. Almost all of them advertise themselves as quiet areas where you can study and get work done whilst enjoying a tasty treat or two. However, almost all of these shops are only good at the latter, if that. I highly recommend Sugar Fox because it is a quiet, peaceful location to hang out and get some business done. The fact that they have truly amazing chocolate milkshakes, very friendly staff, and complementary water makes them even more appealing. I use voice activated software, and I also have a sensory perception disability. This makes it next to impossible to hang out in your average Starbucks. I absolutely and wholeheartedly recommend Sugar Fox as an awesome hangage space. Just make sure you order some of their tasty treats as well!

Jackie D.: Limited choice of ice cream made with milk from South Mountain Dairy. Venue the size of a closet, no privacy, and better as a walk in/out parlor.Great service, but ice cream just , how should I say...mediocre. Little City Creamery same type venue but much much much better ice cream choices, as well as flavors.

Jim Bowe: Excellent home made ice cream, sheet cakes and cupcakes served by friendly locals. The strawberry creme fraiche, peach pie and Oreo flavors are particularly good. Pie dough sprinkles are a nice finishing touch.

Tatte Bakery & Cafe: what do users think?


Amy Workman: Pastry perfection. So many options we had to come two days in a row on our DC visit. The croissant breakfast sandwich was excellent. The house latte absolutely delicious, sweet but not too sweet. Their regular iced latte too is perfect. I saw almost everyone grab a house juice, so we picked up a pear juice and it was like pear cider, so good. Wonderful service, they really focus on it and it shows. The line can get long and it moves fast, but probably not the place to come if you're in a hurry in the morning. Lots of great seating outside. Great spot to pick up a gift, wish we had more room in our luggage.

Vince Granado: Walking around the area and we stumbled across this gem of a cafe/bakery. The savory scone and the breakfast sandwich was outstanding. The flat white coffee was also very lovely. Highly recommend this joint.

Ellen: Food and latte were great! We got their sweet french toast, traditional shakshuka, and their roasted mushroom, spinach & potato bowl. The roasted mushroom bowl was so creamy and good. I also got their gingerbread tile cookie which is full of spices and not too sweet. The line moved quickly and we easily found a seat. Metered parking wasn't too hard to find. I went on Saturday morning.

Kevin Chen: This place remind me of some old Europe bakery shop. I must say they are very familiar. The americano is so so, latte is good but a bit sweet I think too much sugar. You can also come here for brunch. It has both inside and outside seating, inside about 40+ tables outside about 20+ tables Street parking no free.

Linda Yang: This place is a great plus to the city. If there wasn't a little unanticipated missing order, I would've given 5 star for the food with no doubt. We ordered 3 at the usual busy morning time so the pastry box started off just right until we found our 2 other orders didn't exactly go through so later we had to double check. After all, it was a good experience.The staff is super nice and friendly though.

Val Z.: Great place, I always walk away with more than what I come in for. The food is mostly healthy but if you’re on a diet please avert your eyes from the counter with all those delicious croissants and other delights. Coffee is really good here also. I like the service, I didn’t ever feel rushed even when I ordered a lot of items to go. The servers come to your several times despite this not being a full restaurant. Everyone is always nice and I love the deco. All their locations have a similar concept which is very refreshing and I’m glad they are opening more spots.

Black Star Dust: Sunny and bright Ambience is delightful. The service is usually fast. Pastries and breakfast offerings are pretty good. Diverse food offerings. Everything from American, African, Arabic, French and other tasty options. They offer brunch all day. Only thing, the lattés could be a little richer; oatmeal options are quite watery. Maybe try another oatmilk brand?

citygirldc: This may be my new favorite place for a lunch delivery. Ordered the roasted mushroom spinach and potato bowl, chicken salad sandwich. They have really amazing bread. Also had a latte that was packaged perfectly and still hot. Everything was delicious 😋

TPMT Associates: Such a fantastic hip cool joint with lots of people, long lines but definitely worth the wait. This is what every brunch place in the world should model themselves after. Good energy, healthy choices and lots of selection. The food was so tasty and reasonable in price. Even if it’s self serve the service by the people there was still great. Will definitely come back again n again to try their delicious treats

Danielle S: Great atmosphere, great menu and all the yummiest bakery goods! Definitely a place to check out. The only issue I had was ordering food and a coffee but my coffee beverage came out, had to track down where to get it 😄 but other than that, good location with outdoor seating & the staff is friendly. Can't wait to go back and try more items.

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!

Out of the Bubble Bakery: what do users think?


Kathryn Nolter: We had the best experience here!!! I recently found out I need to adapt to a dairy free lifestyle, but was so disappointed that my sweet tooth might suffer. We drove over an hour to come try this bakery based on their "always dairy free" message. It was beyond worth my time and I'll be making the trip again soon! I can't wait to have family and friends taste these. There were so many flavors to choose from, and the flavors really showed up in the baked goods. Yes... That cupcake really does taste like a sweet margarita! The texture was also remarkable. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I honestly didn't find the texture to be any different from a "normal" cake. We also found the prices to be incredibly affordable for the quality of the cupcakes, and the service to be so friendly and welcoming. Thank you for a great experience!

H H: Such a cute little bakery and good food! Gluten free is hard to find and vegan on top is harder. Loved everyone. Just be sure to clarify what items are not gluten free. They even put stickers on bagged items that are gluten free

Stephanie: A life savior. My son turned 5 yo and had been asking for his own cake. Tried to be a baker myself but no way I can make it even close to a design like this. The most important thing is its dairy and egg free. My son loves it and his birthday party. The owner is very accommodating and made it possible for me. I ordered early like a month but for some reason I missed her email but when I called her in a week notice she still made it possible. I am so lucky. Highly recommend.

Adriana R: This was one of the worst bakeries I’ve been to in the DMV area. Firstly the woman behind the counter just stared at me and looked away as I came inside, which was already super off putting. I got a lemon Bundt cake which was dense and dry and smelled like lemon but barely tasted like it I got a lemon shortbread which was incredibly underwhelming flavor wise but the texture was nice And I also got 6 cupcakes and 3 of them had vanilla bases that all tasted the SAME with super filmy and basically flavorless buttercream. The chocolate cupcakes taste like vanilla with a sprinkle of cocoa flavoring. Also the espresso buttercream is BITTER. I’m a baker myself but I wish I’d stayed home and made myself a batch of cupcakes. At most: 1.5/10 rating, definitely not coming back. Update after owner response; I don’t know if you’re trying to save face but we barely spoke in our exchange. I asked how big the lemon shortbread cookies are and you replied “as big as they normally are” and while immediately after saying that, you showed me, i don’t know if you confused me with a returning customer; but today was my first and last visit. I didn’t know your icing was vegan because we also DID NOT speak about this inside the shop. Thank you for replying but I will not be calling or returning ever again based on the experience and the fact that you are lying about a conversation we supposedly had. Best of luck to you and your business.
Response: I am super sad that you didn’t enjoy our baked goods and felt neglected by my customer service. I am the owner and I remember serving you fondly, as we had in pretty in-depth discussion about how we make our frosting vegan without any dairy and organic powdered sugar, and the sweetness level of the frosting, and why the lemon shortbread cookies were on the rack drying when you came in. Perhaps I didn’t make enough eye contact while I was packaging your baked goods, my hands are shaky and I like to focus on packing things so I don’t drop them. Usually even people without food allergies enjoy some of our products. Feel free to call the store when we are open next day I will be happy to discuss your customer experience with you. Regard, TaMeisha

GG Simone: Best bakery I've ever been to! I and my family have food allergies and we love to go to this place and get good treats. My favorite treats are the chocolate chunk cookie and the lemon shortbread cookie. I've tried the Lemon Sunshine tea and it is my new favorite tea ever! Also I LOVE the brownies so DELICIOUS. Thank you!

Jeanette Astrow: What a hidden treasure in Springfield!! On Mother's Day, my daughter had ordered a half dozen cupcakes for my gift. What a delightful surprise! They were both beautifully presented and delicious! They even added a little card from my daughter at her request. Upon checking out their website, I also learned they were vegan and can do gluten free!!

Michelle Ely: We loved our cake! We have a family member with peanut allergy and decided to give OBB a try. We ordered a vanilla layer cake with chocolate frosting. It was excellent! Cake was moist and we enjoyed the fudge-like taste and texture of the icing.

Amanda Pollard: Stopped by today for the first time. Personally I didn’t like anything I bought. The cupcakes are almost $4 for 1 and they are extremely dense and lack flavor. The cookies have a good texture but are lacking sugar or a cookie taste. Unfortunately I won’t be returning.

Anita: I bought 12 cupcakes for a super bowl party and they were disappointing! :-( They looked beautiful!!! However, the cake was dense and dry. And, the frosting was overly sweet. Everybody at the super bowl event had the same feed back. The cupcakes were way to expensive to have had so many leftover!

Kristie DaFoe: Great experiences both times I have ordered from them. The peace of mind for those with special diets (we had a celiac and an anaphylactic tree nut allergy in the group) was wonderful. The taste was also great too!

Captain Cookie & the Milkman: what do users think?


Chen Miller: I had been listening to the rants and raves from my friends for weeks about how great the ice cream is at this store, so I figured why not try it for myself! Their selection of ice cream is pretty good, but I wanted to try out the flavor that I had heard so much about. I ordered two scoops of the cookie dough ice cream in a cup. I almost decided on the strawberry flavor, but at the last minute, I went for the cookie dough. There wasn't a peep anywhere in sight, neither the e entire GW neighborhood, so ordering was easy and fast. The hipster behind the counter served me up with two generous scoops of the cookie dough. Son enough I was out the door, and walking toward the metro enjoying my Friday treat!

Claire Mizutani: I stopped by for a late night snack but ended up picking up cookies for my family. I got an open faced ice cream sandwich(which I think is the way to go since the cookies aren’t really soft enough to bite through without swishing all the I cream out), ginger, oatmeal, double chocolate, chocolate chip, heath bar bits, and snickerdoodle. The favorites were double chocolate, ginger, and Heath. I wished the snickerdoodle had more cinnamon.

Tay Jacobe: I have been a fan of captain cookie for a few years now. It's a bit hit or miss with the freshness of the cookies, but despite that, it is always a good deal for the pure amount of food you get. The ice cream is always creamy and delicious too.

Cory Matthews: My Daughter Loved it!!! If you think it looks like it was designed in 20 minutes or less, that's because it was and it turned out Amazing!!! $25 for a Cookie Cake that I didn't know existed. My Baby girl loves snickerdoodles, and instead of a dozen for her birthday we got a whole cake. Thanks Captain Cookie staff members!!!

Michelle Haughton: Delicious 😋Kudos to the sweet gentleman who made me a new sandwich after mine fell.Vegan cookies available.

Jerry West: We had Captain Cookie & the Milkman for an event recently and it was a HUGE hit! I highly recommend them for your events!

Sarah O'Neal: The cookies are the perfect balance between crispy exterior and chewy interior. They're also a generous size. All the flavors are really tasty!

Sophie: Personally, I love this place but I can understand why some don't. The cookies are good, the ice cream is good, and the ice cream sandwiches are great. They also participate in several food waste/food scarcity programs. They are pretty expensive though. I mostly get their cookies at a discount through a food waste program but if I had to pay full price, I'd understand being disappointed. Note: the cookies are kind of hard so that they don't get too soggy when covered in ice cream, this makes them feel somewhat stale on their own.

Hussain: - Edited on November 7, 2021. Came back to DC after a few years and went to visit my favorite cookie shop! However, it absolutely has gone down in quality. The cookies are cold, hard, and stale. I bought three, usually eating them all in one setting, only to leave 2 left to desire. Please restore the quality this great cookie company once had 🙏. Great Chocolate Chip Cookie! The best cookie I’ve ever bought because it tasted as if I made them myself. It was warm, soft on the center but nice and firm on the outer edges. Delicious cookie overall, the cookie you just have to try yourself. For $5 bucks you get two cookies 🍪 ,which are good sizes, and a small bottle of Grass-Fed Cow Milk 🥛 and they have all types of variety such as Whole, 2%, Soy, Etc. They even have vegan cookies so anyone can essentially try them!

Ryan Montgomery: What a cute little place!! Grab your cookie, ice cream, and bring your best girl to the sweetest little shop in DC! 😄

Alexandria Pastry Shop: what do users think?


chelsea gadiano: Love the German cake I got for my husband’s birthday! They also write on it for free! And gave me plastic knife because we just moved and didn’t have anything yet. Got the candles there too! Staff was very helpful and friendly! Cake was moist, icing not too sweet, it was perfect! We loved it!

Emilie K: The pastries were delicious! Friendly staff - fast service. Lots of parking. I didn’t see prices listed (not a huge deal) my two pasties totaled $12. I’ll be back for sure when I’m down in Alexandria.

Diana Williams: The quiche was great. Customer service, and the peach bar thing... hugely too sweet with a great deal of almond extract- were not good. Also parking spaces are very narrow, especially the disabled ones. Cute place- but we will stick to the savory side.

Karen Nussle: UPDATE: I am updating my review because Tom called me and made this right. He not only apologized for what is not their standard of work, but gave me a FULL refund! I was honestly stunned. And really appreciated it given the circumstances. I did admit to him that the food was fabulous. So I will likely give them another shot in the future. [Previous post: I would not recommend these folks if you need your catering to arrive on time. I hired them for a large family gathering before a funeral on a weekday at Arlington National Cemetery. I told them that timing was very important as we had no wiggle room in the time we all needed to leave for the funeral. 30 minutes past the time they were due to deliver the food they were NO WHERE in sight. I could not get a hold of anyone by phone. When I did finally get someone to answer the phone they said they could not contact the driver. I was about to order pizza when they finally showed up 40 minutes late! I never got a call to apologize or even acknowledge there was a problem. They just charged my credit card and moved on.]

edward spivey: I went to this place for the last time today. Service is terrible and food is mediocre and over-priced. Deli sandwiches are nothing of the sort. I ordered a hot ham and Swiss on rye and it was just flavorless ham and Swiss on two pieces of steamed (microwaved) bread. Sandwich was awful. Hardly any meat and cheese on soggy, spongy, warm bread and included a beat-up pickle. I don't know why others give such good reviews. Pastries are not good and menu is uncreative and dull. Food is also encased in plastic cartons: so, not environmentally sound!!!
Response: Good morning Edward. Please let me apologize for the poor service, and the sandwich you were not pleased with. We try to maintain a good level of service, and quality items in our food. I would like to discuss this with you on the phone, if you could call me at 703-578-4144. Thank you Tom

Larry Bourget: Today I went into Alexandria Pastry new to the area was exploring. I went in saw some really nice Pastry patiently waited incline behind 2 customers who were being served once they were taken care of I stepped forward to give my order and the young lady completely ignored me and went to customers who entered after me. This was my first and last impression of the establishment
Response: Good afternoon Mr Bourget. Please accept my apologies for the poor service you received at my store. We stress the the sales people to ask who was next so that your experience does not happen. This is not the way I run my business, and I would like to make it up to you to show you we do and have good customer service. Please call me at 703-578-4144, so I can make it up to you. Tom Lally

Greg: Pastry shop with some cafe options for a brunch or lunch. Good selection of cookies, cakes, pies, and other baked goods. Ordered a specialty cake last minute which was easily fulfilled the next day. Staff have all been friendly and food was excellent.

Georgina Roth: Lovely selection of German style cakes and pastries - delicious! My German husband was very impressed. The cherry Streuselkuchen is superb. I really loved the quiches too. We will definitely be coming back :-)

Nicholas Carano: Oh my GOODNESS!! What fantastic place!! Great selection of pastries, cakes, even speciality deserts!!! They also have soups, salads and sandwiches to sit down. Great little place, Staff is superior and friendly! This is one of our favorite must-go places here in Alexandria VA!!!

Hilda Kroll: The setting is nothing fancy, but the pastries are the best I've had in this area. Chain coffee shops can't compare to the wonderful selection here. The cakes are beautiful to look at and melt in your mouth. Now that our condo shuttle bus will be stopping at Bradlee, I'll make sure I have time to enjoy coffee and dessert before heading home.

DC Sweet Potato Cake: what do users think?


Frances M: I've stopped by several times on Saturday's and the store is never open. I've also called and no one picks up their customer service line. They have a Baltimore location, but I'm not willing to drive an hour away for cake or to a storefront that may also be closed. Earlier this month I ordered their cakes on QVC. I finally cancelled my order after waiting 16 days and never receiving the cakes. The sweet potato cakes are delicious and I was looking forward to purchasing them for birthday parties & events I have coming up this year. I'd love to support them if they open another store that's close by.

Jenny Coyne: I just was walking by and someone told me I had to try it. I’m super glad I did. Sweet people to come into contact with, beautiful shop and really the most amazing cake! I think it’s better than other well loved DC cake shops!!! Seriously. Thank you!!!

Matt: Amazing. As a carrot cake fanatic, it was not hard to fall hard for sweet potato cake -- delicious and moist!! Excellent cupcakes too!! So glad to have them in Hyattsville.

Terrell Richmond: I have had the sweet potato cake 3 times and each time it tasted phenomenal! The ingredients are fresh and the flavors dance on your tongue. I highly recommend it.

O S: Omg.. Since they have done their soft opening in Hyattsville, I have been there every other week... I have so many people hooked on their sweet potato cake and cheesecake!!! Never disappointed. The staff are super friendly and helpful!! I give them 10 stars and two thumbs up!

Lorenxo Dowjeon: Phenomenal Bakery located within the Savor Food Hall. Had a (Food Court meets Whole Foods )Vibe to it. The Staff was very professional, courteous, and on top of their game. Very knowledgeable about Baking and assisted in every way possible. The cakes were fresh and was thoroughly pleased the entire staff and building regulated to and worked to top perfection under Covid-19 guidelines. I'd suggest ordering ahead to assist with the pick up process. Parking was very accommodating, located in the garage yet be mindful to be courteous to park in the patron parking and pick up your order expeditiously as to allow others to shop. Also do to Covid-19 there will be no inside dining (or on the steps for that matter) ,however it was worth the drive. And look forward to returning once more.

Sherisse Steward: I ordered two cakes ($45) on Postmates to surprise my mom for her 80th birthday. After waiting an hour, the PM driver shared that the restaurant was not found at the listed location, a first. I emailed DC SPC to request hour and location updates across PM, UberEats, Yelp as well as its own site. The owner contacted me quickly to inform me that neither “Delectable Cakery” (PM), nor DC SPC (UberEats) have a 3rd party delivery relationship, the app listings were fraudulent, apologized for the inconvenience and would, in return, coordinate with the staff and have the order to me para gratis that week. I offered to keep the owner in the loop re PM’s $80 card hold release for the elusive treats, and, after several rounds of conflicting PM emails, all was resolved. I followed up with days later because ... my mom. No response, no cake.

Kevin: DC Sweet Potato cakes are a beautiful melody of flavors, a rhapsody to be cherished. Each cake pairs well with a silky cup of java. The original sweet potato flavored cake, pairs with Vanilla Macadamia Nut flavored coffee. The rum flavored cake pairs with an espresso or a medium roast.

Fee: Awesome cakes, awesome service. My friend from Boston comes to the Capital Jazz Fest every year and DC Sweet Potato cake always has a table there. She fell in love with their cakes, now she has them shipped to Boston! I highly recommend!

Stephanie CupcakeCritic: I love Delectable Cakery! They've since left their Mt. Rainier location for a temp space in Landover, MD but nonetheless beautiful. Their signature sweet potato is moist with a sweet cream cheese frosting. Their red velvet is also very moist and flavorful with the right amount of kick. The owners are a joy to be around and customer service is top notch.

CakeLove (Warehouse): what do users think?


Ami Hazell: I had the opportunity to have a chocolate cupcake with vanilla buttercream icing on top. The cupcake was on the small side and rather dry. The icing was at least and an inch and a half high. The icing tasted like flavored butter...kid you not!. I was hoping for something really wonderful. I was quite disappointed. The service was fine.

Moira Dhaliwal: I ordered my cake online. It was very easy and I even got a discount for ordering online! When I arrived to pick up my cake, I was deceived by the small, trendy, storefront. The cake was beautiful and exactly as I had seen it online (I got the vanilla with butter cream frosting and strawberries inside)! It tasted delicious and got rave reviews from my friends. I know where I'm getting my next cake from!

Miriam: The cupcakes were really good!! They were like really fluffy and moist and they were very thick yet they were not dense and heavy. Really good cupcakes, I had a red velvet but they also had unique different kinds like strawberry lemonade.

Steven Vong: All I had from here was a cupcake that was cold, small, and not very satisfying. There's a reason this cake store has no wait for cupcakes: there are many better alternative in DC. I went with 2 friends in the morning and we all tried different flavors. When we asked why it was cold and hard, the lady said they had to refrigerate them from the day before for safety concerns... I thought cupcakes were supposed to be fresh?!? Who tells their customers that they are eating day old cupcakes?!? Anyways, they were a little too skimpy on the frosting and the cake wasn't moist at all. My friends got theirs microwaved and said it still wasn't very good. I don't know about waiting an hour for cupcakes, but avoid this one and go to Baked and Wired or Georgetown Cupcake instead. I'm also thinking about trying Crumbs :)

mark gomez: We'll keep looking for the best cupcake. Not bad but not great. Cake and frosting are weird textures like they've been frozen, not light and fluffy. Cake slices were pretty good

Genie Cantin: Love their delicious amazing cakes. And they make some of the best vegan cakes you've ever tasted. And everything here is reasonable priced too.

Tiffany Brady: I enjoyed the cupcake I had for what it was. The cake itself was well made and tasty but what they call "buttercream" is more like a slightly richer whipped cream frosting. I very strongly prefer traditional buttercream so, if you're like me, be warned!

vercera harvey-white: I am SAD to say that my experience with the delivery as well as customer service was not a good one. I love love LOVE their cakes and wanted one for my birthday (yesterday). My wonderful husband was able to get it delivered since all of the stores near us have closed. He was charged extra, even after the regular delivery charge, due to the fact that we live in Wheaton and they are coming from Alexandria. Ok, whatever. They told him they would have it delivered no later than noon. He was called at 930 that morning to confirm the address. By 12:30 we still had NO cake. We called and the store contact was surprised becasue by her account, the delivery company had left "a while ago". She called us back to let us know it would be another 15 minutes. Well, after about 40 more minutes, we finally got our cake...an hour and 10 minutes AFTER the estimated delivery time. They give a window of 3 hours (delivered between 9-12)... it should not take that long to get over the bridge to our house. Anyway, what REALLY concerned us was that the delivery was in a regular car, not a refrigerated unit. The cake was then melted and sweating with a dent and smudge in it due to the sloppy transportation. The heat was also a factor. If you are delivering cakes, I would think you would know how to properly transport your product with weather being a factor. The delivery person also just walked into the house unannounced. My mother in law runs a daycare in her house. She has a sign on her door that states this and not to make loud noises between 12:30 and 2:30 (which is also why we wanted the cake BY noon). The delivery person said that she saw the sign and that's why she just walked in... NO!! you call us (the number on the cake) or the contact at the store and let them know you are there... you do NOT just walk up into someone's house. That is SO unsafe. We have a BIG dog. What if the dog attacked this person. Or the kids woke up or something. Can you imagine how startling that is to have a complete stranger just WALK into your house...The door has to be unlocked due to the day care and fire laws. You cant have locked doors in case of an emergency. But also, common sense as well as professionalism is not to just WALK into someone's house. We sent pictures of the cake and stated how unhappy we were to the company. Mr. Brown emailed us and asked for more clarification. He also stated that due to the weather, the cake will sweat but it shouldn't effect the taste and the delivery states that it may be late cause of traffic... Like i said. If you run a cake business, and you know the climate of which you live... plan better. I can understand traffic as well. But if you are going to be an hour + late, let the customer know. YOU DO NOT just walk into someone's house unannounced like it's ok. We stated all of our grievances to the company and Mr. Brown... and have yet to hear anything back. I feel that we should get something refunded like the extra fees charged for delivery that was not satisfactory. Being 30 mins late is one thing... but an hour or more when we paid for an extra delivery charge is just unacceptable. Also, the fact that there was NO concern for the overly late delivery or the fact that the person walked into a house is BEYOND unprofessional. There was no acknowledgment at all about the unprofessional conduct or the fact that we were unhappy customers. That is not a good way to run a business. I was very disappointed becasue I love their cakes. But after this fiasco, I am sad to say, we will not be using them again.

Carlos Bustillo: yes that company is not good they don't treat good to there employees specially that girl who is the manager she thinks she owns the company, in top of that she treats the co-workers like ignorants. also hiring people with no papers. i did report already to the department of employer. i feel sorry people which they are spanish having hire rank treat there own people bad.

BlackmatterX: Love CAKELOVE at National Harbor and in Washington D.C. This place has amazingly delicious sweets. The services is also friendly and very warm.

Ginger White: Took a friend to an appointment and this place was close by. Absolutely awesome! Tried a mocha and a blueberry scone. Just yummy. You Virginia folks so lucky to have such an awesome bakery.

Suzie Saman: Ordered the Midnight chocolate cake for my mom's birthday party. Cake was a hit with the party guests. It was not too sweet, perfectly balanced and moist. The rich chocolate buttercream icing and layers were delicious. Highly recommend.

Jake and Danarae Stevens: This place is AWSOME! Food was excellent, espresso yummy and the service was so sweet and friendly. I’d come here every week if I lived here 😊

Paul Mayeur: I had the bacon egg and cheese biscuit and it was delicious. Dare I say too much bacon? I won't because no such thing, but it was a lot of bacon. The biscuit on its own was very delicious too

Ana Cristina Canales Gomez: The cinnamon bun is simply out of this world (tried the one without nuts). Cupcakes were really nice too. Has working WiFi, so its a nice place to work.

Marina Kessenich: This brioche with pistachio cream and chocolate chips is one of the best sweets (and it’s not too sweet, really hits the nail on the head with balance). I was in the neighborhood and just wanted to stop somewhere for coffee so I def was not expecting to just happen across something this good. V happy.

Erum Sid: bought a few chocolate croissants this morning, for 5 dollars/croissant would expect to eat something better then rock hard stale bread. please throw away your stale baked goods.

Waverly Renee: Everyone is so friendly. I'm vegan and was happy to find delicious vegan soup options and vegan baguettes. However, the pastries are not vegan. But, they are all homemade and look heavenly. They offer gluten-free as well.

Alexandra & Jeremy: Sweetbites is a cute, quaint neighborhood cafe. It has some typical cafe fare and some more unusual fare. The coffee is very good quality and they use a lot of organic milks, which is great. The baked goods are generally excellent. Of note are the incredibly large and slightly salty, sticky cinnamon buns which go wonderfully with a cup of coffee. Also of note are the gluten-free bundt cakes they make - wonderfully moist and delightful. And today they had a pistachio, brandied cherry roll with buttercream frosting that was DIVINE. Honestly, one of the best desserts in a long time! Definitely worth a visit.

Sam Casselbury: What an adorable little nook in McLean! Beautiful and clean Cafe. Very welcoming employees. They had the best quiche I have ever had. Everything is made in house. You should definitely stop by for a visit

Sunflower Bakery: what do users think?


Jules Polonetsky: Lovely baked items created by very special people. Spend your money and support independence and training for the employees. Gluten free options available.

Keli Dimari: I'm truly delighted at Sunflower Bakery's mission; to me, it's admirable that people try to be kind and provide the opportunity for others to grow and refine a skill, and I understand that making a place like this bakery requires a lot of guts and a ton of grit to achieve. Even for a place with a mission, if their food isn't amazing, it isn't enough. The main reason I went today was to see if it was tasty...if it was really delicious and amazing, because all the good intent in the world doesn't make food more tasty, and I have a severely-dairy-allergic (needs epi pen) 2-year-old that I was desperately trying to find a genuinely tasty birthday cake for. I was hoping this bakery would be yummy enough that it could become the bakery I get stuff from, for my extremely allergic and pretty durn picky kiddo. I purchased several items, just to get a baseline of things. It is a great little bakery, with a ton of but free, dairy free, and vegan options. The lemon bars and chocolate crackle cookie are excellent; I tested one chocolate cookie in my car, at a stoplight, and then pulled over at a gas station to eat four more. The chocolate cracked cookies are that good. They are extremely chocolatey, really decadent, like a brownie corners on the outside of the cookie, and the middle of the softest brownie ever on the inside of the cookie....if it weren't for the calorie count, I could polish off the whole container by myself. These are the best soft chocolate cookies I've ever had. There were so few left, I migrated them to a ziplock bag to save space. There were about thrice as many a few hours ago. They are perfect for coffee or tea. The lemon bars are also beautifully balanced; I can totally see why they are a crowd favorite. It has a thin golden brown crust that's a tiny bit chewy and very crumbly, and a really good filling. Unlike regular store-bought, or even those found at most restaurants, the filling in these lemon bars was not overly sweet. I prefer my lemon bars a bit more tart, but I'm also the weirdo that tends to double the lemon and lemon zest in most recipes. It was really, really good. If you get one item from Sunflower Bakery, and you're not allergic to and rather like lemon, I would strongly recommend the lemon bars. The challah bread was light and fluffy and had a nice bounce to it, the tahini cookies are very crumbly but a bit salty (is that normal?), but had a good sesame flavor. The macarons were surprisingly really good, considering the filling had no dairy at all. If you didn't tell me it had no dairy, I couldn't have told you there was anything unusual; well flavored, nice chewy texture, they were beautiful and there were four of each flavor. I loved them quite a bit. The berry lemon loaf was flavorful but a bit too sweet, and not enough lemon....would've liked a little more lemon zest or a little more berry flavor. Overall was just sweet and sort of average; not bad, because fresh baked goods are generally delicious....but it could be so much more, you know? I wish it were more flavorful. I wouldn't mind if they bumped up the price by a bit or reduced the size, if it had more flavor. The only thing I got that I really didn't like was the Almond Berry cake. For me, personally, it was way too sweet/overly sugary and didn't taste enough like almond or berries. They needed to intensify one or both flavors, and could probably cut the sugar in the icing by half. As it was, it was too in-your-face-sugar-coma-ish. We didn't finish it and ended up crumbling bits of the cake into homemade ice-cream...(we just reduced the sugar in the ice-cream recipe, instead). However, that could just be me....maybe that cake is intended for young kids and just had a lot of sugar in it. I don't know. It seemed sort of out of place compared to the tastes and textures of the other items I got. Overall, loved the bakery and definitely will go back again. This is definitely the bakery I'm getting the birthday cake from, and I'm sure we will be back many more times before and after.

Barbi Wood: Found this bakery through a blog recommendation and I'm so glad I did. I live in Kansas and had my order plus two other orders shipped to Missouri and Tennessee. Everything was great from beginning to end. Ordering online was super easy, all three shipments arrived on time and in great shape. The cookies are delicious!!! I'm very pleased with my purchases.

Michael Palan: Excellent bakery with a great mission full of heart and deliciousness. It was Purim and needed hamantaschen, and luckily I stumbled upon Sunflower Bakery. Their ‘taschen were super soft and super yummy. They were better than my mother-in-law’s homemade ones. Shhhh don’t tell her. Can’t wait to return to try something new!

Jack Luxemburg: Though out of the way in an industrial part of Rockville, it is worth the trip. The baked goods are excellent even if the selection is somewhat limited. That the bakery is also a training and employment center for people with disabilities makes buying there doubly good. There are a range of products that are gluten free, vegetarian and maybe vegan.

Robert: Really terrific organization. Cakes and cookies for my daughter’s birthday were exactly as ordered, ready for pickup as promised, and were all delicious. Thanks to the team at Sunflower for helping my child celebrate.
Response: Thank you! We are glad to be a part of her celebration!

Sydnye White: Sunflower Bakery nailed the individually wrapped treats for the school faculty and staff during Teacher Appreciation Week. Muffins on Tuesday and cute cookies on Wednesday.

Mary Eva RB: I placed an order through their website, and It came perfectly and delicious.I recommend them, not only because the bakery goods also because their mission.

Paloma Bolasny: One star for their hamentashen. Their version are not hamentashen, they are cookies in the shape of a triangle. And we all know that’s not a hamentashen!

Tatiana Harris: Love baking there so much fun.

Tatte Bakery & Cafe: what do users think?


Jenna Wollman: It’s not often that a location has amazing service, food, and even seating but this place had it all. It’s a great environment for anyone and everyone. Everyone there was so kind. My latte was amazing as well as my Turkey Avacado sandwich! We had the best, most relaxing time here. 10/10.

Adriana Rakshana: Totally get the DC Tatte hype now! Didn't think the drinks and the pastries would be as good as they were. Tried out the house halwa latte, definitely recommend it! The cherry pistachio tart was great, not too sweet! My friend quite enjoyed her pear tart and matcha latte as well!

C F: So excited this location opened in our neighborhood. Delicious food and desserts like the other locations with super friendly service and a brand new space! Beautiful outdoor sitting with nice chairs, tables and umbrellas. My favorite meal is the potato, bacon mushroom Shakshuka with sourdough bread to dip and if you like dark chocolate definately try the dark chocolate mousse cake for dessert. I've also had the expresso on occasion and it's great too!

Victor Immanuel: Food are good, Many choices for breakfast and brunch.Latte is just standard, is not my type of coffee (too acid).Overall good, surely I will visit again. 👍

Luisa Spizzotin: I love this place. The cappuccino is like in Italy!! The staff is kind but the speed is not the best. However it remains the best place to have breakfast!

Vishal Kumar: It's one of best bakeries, lunch and brunch places that one can try. Their croissants, sandwiches and tartines are great ! This is a avocado and sweet potato tartine.

Jay Graham: Adorable place with a stylish interior and patio seating. It felt very comfortable to sit inside and relax. The staff were pleasant. They have amazing looking bakery items, including gluten-free treats. I only tried one, but it was very good, and very reasonable prices for the level of goods. I also had their Tatte House Latte, and it was delicious. However, my partner had the chai latte and it was very weak, more milk than tea, and not much flavor at all. So maybe skip that, but definitely some great items to be had in this lovely cafe.

Munera A: The bakeries and pastries were actually Delicioussss.. but we also ordered the shakshoka it was 5/10! The Mozzarella sandwich was below average. In my opinion they should work more on their salty foods

Mona Rezvani: Come here and take your IG pics but don’t expect good food or coffee. The ambiance is good and the staff are helpful (some are just overwhelmed by the sheer volume of customers), but the food is a major pass from me. If Tatte is supposed to be a medley of Turkish/Arab/Moroccan/Mediterranean/Iranian/Israeli/generally SWANA-inspired cuisine, it misses the mark in a big way. Where’s the olive oil, cilantro, or feta cheese to accent the dishes? Why is the slata on my bread and not next to it? If zaatar is on the menu, why is it dry? Is shakshouka just a buzz word for “eggs served in things” because no North African home would ever serve you “corn and spinach” and call it a shakshouka. If you know, you know and sadly Tatte doesn’t.

Jennifer Schaffer: My favorite bakery and cafe in DC. The gluten free baked goods are the best in the city! For a meal, I recommend the lamb hash and the avocado salmon toast. One of the best spots for both doing work during the day and weekend brunch. The gluten free menu is delicious and varied. Their coffee and chai tea latte are both good.
