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.

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!

Stephanie Wester: Great baked goods! This morning I ordered a cinnamon roll and it is perfect. It is so light and fluffy and melts in your mouth. The coffee was made fresh and was nice and hot. The staff are also so nice!

Shankar Kulumani: Great bakery in the neighborhood. Very easy to order online and pickup. Everything is expertly baked and there's a wide variety of gluten free options. Will be a regular stop

Lanah Koelle: The cinnamon rolls are divine! Multi-layered and soft with the perfect amount of sweetness and a hint of orange. We'll be back to try other items like the scones, muffins, and focaccia!

Ahmon: Excellent cinnamon rolls and chocolate chip muffins!

Mitra Nasrollahi: Had the chocolate chip muffin. Delicious!

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.

The Red Bandana Bakery: what do users think?


Seth Cohen: My partner has issues with dairy and egg, so, we were delighted to stumble upon Red Bandana! We originally ordered some smaller snacks and they were great. The reason for the 5 stars - is we emailed them about a birthday cake dairy/egg free birthday cake, along with a flavor and some ideas/examples we were thinking about, and just let them do their magic. Jaimie and team knocked it out of the park! She was super helpful, answering a million questions back and forth on email. Payment and pickup was a breeze. Thanks again Jaimie and Red Bandana!
Response: Thank you for all of your creative inspiration, we had so much fun with your cake!

Lily Ann: I want to take this time to sincerely thank this bakery for the wonderful work that they do. I have a daughter with multiple food allergies (egg, peanut, tree nut, soy) and Red Bandana Bakery was able to accommodate her needs. I recently ordered the 'Fruity Patootie' cake and it was the first time my daughter was able to dig into a birthday cake without us fearing that she would have a reaction. Seeing her finally be able to enjoy a cake that was not baked by me brought tears of joy to this mama's eyes. And boy did she love the cake, as did we all; It was a lovely texture and beautifully decorated!
Response: I am so happy to hear this! Thank you for your kind words, and we hope to bake for you and your family for many years to come! 💕

Emily Warren: They make so many wonderful treats and it is easy to get gluten free and vegan items or whatever you need. This bakery made my wedding cake and is still my go to place for gluten free baked goods.

Savannah Salters: The owner and her daughter are super sweet and professional. The cake wasn’t to fancy just used to reveal we were expecting our first child but decorated well. Referred here by someone and the cake was entirely to sweet. Couldn’t even eat the cake. Guest complained of the taste and I was kind of sad because I’ve been having a sweet tooth during my pregnancy.
Response: Hi Savannah! Thank you so much for your feedback, I'm glad you were happy with the service and the decorations. We will keep in mind your thoughts on the sweetness--we did make the strawberry crunch cake as a custom request for you and it is not actually on our menu so it sounds like that one will need to be tweaked if it's going to become a regular offering. Thanks again and if you'd like to reach out to me directly I'll be happy to offer you a store credit to use toward one of our signature offerings that we have taste-tested and perfected!

Andrew: Great for people with multiple food allergies. Be very careful when telling them your allergies as the color coding is very specific. One particular lady there told us that we could use blue and green but it turns out she did not hear that. My kid was allergic to egg so one of those colors was incorrect. Once you know what colors are good, you can stick with those knowing it will be fine
Response: Thank you for letting us know Andrew! Yes, all the items on our menu in GREEN are vegan, the blue items are dairy-free, and everything here is gluten-free. It never hurts to clarify allergies multiple times when ordering so thank you for taking the time to do that with us about the egg allergy—better safe than sorry!

Kim: Thank you thank you thank you! Once again you all have never ceased to amaze me with something different and new every birthday every year for me and my other half-lef! My Wonder Woman“themed” cake with the subtle red white and blue with the stars (A fun living clue I was supposed to figure out what it represented ) was a hit! Delicious vanilla and lovd the pineapple filling! You make the best gluten-free cakes around and taste is absolutely phenomenal!

Jared Alvarado: Friendly people, tasty pastries. I get to come here a few times a year and it’s always a treat to look forward to. I always get the vegan pastries, but I’m guessing the conventional ones are tasty as well.

Robert smith: Great vegan options! Loved the sugarless blondies and chocolate brownies. Good black bean burger and got. Vegan peach muffin for breakfast next day. Just wish they were open earlier as I would have visited again before my meeting! Only bottled water to drink…

Taunia Stevenson: This place is amazing! I was more than impressed with the service and blown away when I received my order! Jaimie (and staff) are the best! Did an outstanding job on my 40th birthday cupcakes! Almost didn’t want to eat them because they looked so beautiful! These were the best gluten free cupcakes I’ve had to date. I will most definitely order from this bakery again. If you have gluten (dietary) restrictions (or just want some good cakes and baked goods) I highly recommend this bakery. They also have a good menu of other gluten free eats when you visit the bakery! Outstanding!
Response: Thank you Taunia!!! We loved making your cupcakes, what a beautiful visión you had for them :)

Brad: This place is awesome and the staff are very kind. The bread is hit or miss but the pizza and sweets are INCREDIBLE. Not the cheapest but it's gluten dairy free and happy to pay a premium.
Response: Thank you Brad!

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!

Baked by Yael: what do users think?


Suradee Thongkiattikul: Great place to stop by after the zoo to grab a quick bite. The bagel sandwiches are around $6 and baked goods are around $4 each. Overall a decent place with vegan and gluten-free options. Nut-free and kosher if that’s also a concern for you. They had cute zoo-themed cake pops here and if you want a cute panda pop then this is the place for you. I tried their southwestern sandwich on an everything bagel and it was tasty and big enough that you’re full but not overly stuffed. I also tried their cookie bar and it was okay, though I wish I would’ve gone with their raspberry bar instead (maybe next time).

Marie Brown: Beautiful cake pops. I wanted to get a holiday gift for my mom (who already has everything) and support local business at the same time. Online order and curbside pickup were very easy.

Matthew Henry: The best hamantaschen anywhere. Impressive, both Vegan and regular. Their vegan Reuben is an amazing experience. Even if you've never had anything vegan before, try it. And, be careful, you may never eat an animal again :)
Response: Wow, thank you! We're so happy you enjoy our hamantaschen and sandwiches. We agree with you that they're quite delicious :-)

Christen Sparago: Baked by Yael is a real hidden gem. This place feels like a neighborhood bakery but has a surprisingly extensive menu (which is almost entirely vegetarian or vegan, with gluten-free options available too). Their cake pops are delicious and really cute, but the standouts for me are their bagels -- some of the best I've ever had in my life, and definitely the best I've had in DC. They're clearly handmade and always fresh. The whole staff, Yael herself included, is super friendly and there's some nice seating outside right across from the Zoo entrance. Highly recommend the next time you're walking up Connecticut or picking up a snack to take on the Tregaron trails!
Response: What a testimonial! Thank you, Christen! We are so grateful to have amazing customers like you.

Corine Sass: I buy an assorted bag of bagels and a tub of cream cheese every saturday from the Alexandria Farmer's Market and they are something I seriously can't do my week without! I love that I can just throw them in the freezer and reheat them in the mornings, making them taste fresh out of the oven every time. They are chewy (-in the best way) and soft at the same time, some of the best bagels I've had! Definitely worth a try.
Response: Corine, thank you so much for your kind words and for being such a loyal customer!

Ryan Wee Sim: TL;DR - Food is delicious and kosher, management is bitter and not-so-kosher. Vegan faire is great! Bagels are tasty, if a bit small. But the customer service was bad enough that I won't be going back. Submitted my order at 9:28am for 10am pickup. I arrive at 10:01am, to a shop with no customers, and am welcomed by the (seemed to be) manager who couldn't be bothered to look up from her computer. I inquire about my online order for 10am, she finishes her computer task, then walks to the kitchen, where I can see the person just start making my order (2 bagel sandwiches, no modifications). I say, "I was hoping to just run in and out", holding a toddler fidgeting with their mask. The manager says, "it will be right out", again barely looking up. I step outside, and return at 10:10. Still no food in hand. I mumble my frustration, but still no apology from the manager. At 10:12, the person making my order hands me two bags and says zero words. Manager is in the kitchen, waving a paper at her staff. On my way out, I hear the manager say in an agitated voice to her staff, "you don't have your own thermometers?!" I had enjoyed getting cake balls on zoo visits, but with management like I witnessed, no thank you, not ever again.

Rowan Cloud: I love this place! They have a great variety of options, including gluten and allergen free foods. The staff is very nice and incredibly helpful, and I always feel welcomed coming in here. The decor gifted to them from the zoo across the street are an added bonus- so cute!

Pete Freeman: Typically coming to a bakery at the end of the day is a mistake, and while I missed the morning brownies there were plenty of cake pops and they were excellent! I also want to counter some of the reviews of staff behavior; the woman who helped me was friendly and quick. I’m impressed!

Toby Barg: Can’t speak for the in person experience, but we ordered breakfast and snacks to our hotel for our group and it was nicely presented, delicious, on time. Warm bagels snd cream cheese and other options. Highly recommend the Duffins (donuts crossed with muffins) which were fresh, soft and very delicious (maple glazed and chocolate glazed were our favorites).

Allison F: Now that I am back from out of town, I will share the details of my experience. Customer service was extremely lacking. Employee did not get my name correct despite repeating it twice. I figured she got the 2nd attempt, as she did not ask me again or clarify how to spell it. Didn't think "Allison" was that difficult. As a result, my order got lost and I did not receive my food for a while because they and I did not recognize the name they were calling. Once I received my "small" lox bagel, it was disappointingly ungenerous and low on the portion with the lox, not worth the pricey $10. My partner had multiple grounds in the bottom of his coffee that he was irritated with and the cake pop was "ok". In my opinion, the commercial ones Starbucks sells are better, so we wished we just went to the one next door. We were on a time limit getting to the zoo, so this sadly resulted in this review.

The Happy Tart Falls Church: what do users think?


J Q: Amazing bakery! I bought my wedding cake here and it was absolutely delicious. My gluten-eating husband loved their cake so much that he chose to do a fully gluten free cake instead of separate gluten and gluten free cakes like we’d initially planned to do. We couldn’t be happier with how the cake looked or tasted. We got many compliments on it and many guests went back for seconds!

Verity Sainte Marie: I have been coming here for years and it is honestly one of my very favorite places. It's so hard to find good gluten free (and in my case, soy free) options, but Happy Tart always comes through. Everyone who works here is aways so friendly and they continue to come up with new and exciting gluten free recipes. This Valentine's day picnic special was absolutely perfect and made the day very special, and the focaccia was absolutely to die for! My partner and I agreed that no one would know it was gluten free, it was just amazing.

Jessica Thiel: You do not have to be gluten free to love this place. Their food is excellent. Favorite are mushroom turnovers, quiche, scones, chocolate chip cookies. We ordered the lasagna for a family gathering and it was a hit. Don’t miss out!

Ashley Davidson: While I'm gluten-free, my husband and most of our guests are not, so we opted for a (regular, gluten-filled) dessert bar through our venue/caterer and a ceremonial cake from The Happy Tart. I love the cafe in Falls Church, but asked around for recommendations for a gluten-free wedding cake – and SO many people recommended The Happy Tart. Because they weren't doing in-person cake tastings, we picked up a cupcake sampler and took it home for a virtual tasting with Emma over Zoom. They were delicious! We couldn't decide on a single flavor for our two-tier cake, so Emma did one of each: vanilla salted caramel and almond-raspberry. We provided a few inspirational photos via email and Emma and her team took it from there. The Happy Tart delivered the cake to our venue in Washington, D.C., and Emma decorated it with flowers that our florist provided. It was gorgeous! While we never intended to serve the cake to everyone (selfishly I wanted to eat it with my three Celiac friends), our venue/caterer ended up slicing it anyway and plating it with the dessert bar. I was so bummed to not get any cake beyond a bite during our cake cutting, but our guests raved about it! They had no idea it was gluten-free, and I think we managed to convince a handful of gluten-eating friends and family to start eating GF pastries! I can't say enough amazing things about The Happy Tart.

CJ Jones: We love this place. The wife can't eat gluten and without having the Happy Tart, our lives would be much blander. They also catered our wedding and did a fantastic job. The food is delicious and healthy. Love this place.

Christina Saull: Ordered the chocolate decadence cake from here for my husband's birthday - it's hard to find good cakes that are also gluten free! But Happy Tart hit all the right notes with his awesome, yummy cake. GF and non-GF family loved it. Online ordering was easy, as was pickup.

Kristie DaFoe: Excellent gluten free cupcakes that were liked equally by those who have to be gluten free and those that do not! The buttercream was beautifully formed into floral designs. Would recommend again :)

Jordan Taylor: I am absolutely delighted by the custom cake and cupcakes I ordered for my son's birthday party. After putting in my request, I received several design options, I picked my favorite, paid the invoice, and these beautiful and delicious treats were ready to pickup the morning of my party. I couldn't be happier with how easy the process was, and how beautiful and delicious my cake/cupcakes were!

K NF: I would give them 5 stars just for the crisp and butteriness of the puff/layered pastry in the cream cheese-berry turnover. I drank a red eye along with it. It’s a lot to ask, a delicious coffee / espresso AND delightful gf pastry. Worth it!

C Davidson: The absolute best - incredible tarts and cakes. Started out of a small shop in the Del Ray neighborhood and now located in Falls Church. Worth the effort to go - meals plus pastries. ALL EXCEPTIONAL.

Sticky Fingers Diner: what do users think?


Alyssa Miron: I get overwhelmed when I find a vegan place with this many amazing options. The chick’n tenders were so good paired with a salad, and I took home some tofu “egg salad”. I’ll be back for a Buffalo chick’n wrap and all the pastries. This place is a gem!!! Very attentive service too.
Response: Thank you, Alyssa!

Stacey Maresco: Loved the atmosphere of this place! Definite diner vibes — but 100% vegan food! We ordered a salad, the Mac & cheese and the crazy bones brownie (which was also GF). We liked the food and service was so so. Only thing that would have made this better was more attentive servers. Vibe was great (so was the dessert!)

Larry “Big Schlim” Mcleod: There’s this new’ish Vegan spot on H street in N.E. D.C. The moment I heard about it, I made plans to go!! I went, they have REALLY tasty food, & I ate well. MY experience however…left me feeling unwelcome & slighted (see my customer service segment). . Where I am: @stickyfingersdiner . Location Reviewed: 406 H St., N.E. Washington D.C. . Menu Includes: All Day Breakfast; French Toast, Pancakes, Potatoes, Seitan & Waffles, Impossible Sausage Croissant, Tofu, Corn “Beef” Cabbage, Vegan Calamari, Buffalo Wraps, Pasta Salads, Beyond Burger, Baked Goods, Candy, Beverages, Cocktails, & Shakes. . Items Reviewed: Their Seitan $ Waffles (with 100% maple syrup & hot sauce $14). The fried chicken like Seitan…STAMP!! Crispy & well seasoned!! The waffles were DELICIOUS! Their French Onion Soup (with crostini & smoked Violife slices $8). STAMP!! Flavorful, mild & warm!! Their Oyster Mushroom Calamari (with marinara & a lemon wedge $10). STAMP!! Fried to perfection, you may not even know that these are mushrooms!! Their Roasted Potatoes (with gravy & garlic aioli-$1, $5.75). STAMP!! Undeniably tasty, especially with the gravy & aioli!! Their Chocolate Tiramisu-$8, & Their, non-alcoholic Chai Lemon Fizz-$6). STAMP both of these items!! Delectable, moist tiramisu, & that superbly refreshing fizz!! Get these!! . Customer Service: Bluntly, I wasn’t greeted, or welcomed when I walked in. I was uncomfortably stared at after I greeted the host, I had to ask about seating & how the ordering process worked. So when the patrons that sat next to me were welcomed, asked if it were their first time there, and had the ordering process explained to them w/o asking, I was disappointed. Nobody said anything wrong to me, and I was serviced promptly, but the extra care & concern that those customers received should be standard for all customers. . Online Navigation: Simple . Parking: Rough/Metered/Enforced . Recommendations: The Soup, Potatoes, Tiramisu, Calamari, & definitely the Fizz!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️=STAMP ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️➕=A.DELICIOUS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️=DELICIOUS ⭐️⭐️⭐️=DECENT ⭐️⭐️=PASS ⭐️=NAH #Bigschlimsreviews

Linda Piccotti: All we keep saying is, "oh my God!" This is the best vegan food we have ever had! We will definitely be back here when we are visiting near D.C. again. We need one where we live, lol. Great service, friendly and accommodating staff. The biscuits and gravy, blueberry pancakes and chilaquiles we're excellent. I don't like spicy food so I was in heaven. Add hot sauce if you want more heat 😉

Harmony Hitchner: The food came out looking like an ad! Beautiful, but according to the family it was just as tasty as it looked! I didn’t get a pic of other food because it was gone before I knew it. The service was beyond amazing! Very sweet , and very helpful staff. I just wished they had more allergy friendly food. But overall, would absolutely bring friends and family back to eat there!!
Response: Thank you!

Zack Bloom: This place is unbelievable. The perogie are so good! The poutine was also shockingly great. Don’t miss the Chocolate Egg Cream (no real egg involved of course, it’s all vegan!).
Response: Zack, you are the best.

Melissa Buckingham: I ordered the chickpea steak platter and I'm sure that this entree clouded my experience. It was very underwhelming and I ate about half of it before taking it to go. The picture is the full serving. I think the potatoes lose their intended crispness because they are plated under the greens. The sauce could have also had a kick to it but again, it was underwhelming. I had high hopes for this place so if I wasn't in town from NYC then I'd consider trying a different menu item in the future.
Response: Hello Melissa! Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry you didn't enjoy your experience. We hope if you are in the area again that you give us a second chance, especially during brunch.

Linda Zh: Average to below average vegan food. The seitan “chicken” was decent but the waffle was soggy. Funfetti cake slice was dense and one-note with its sweetness. The mac and cheese was extremely disappointing - the mac was very thick and flavorless, and it was not adequately coated by the cheese sauce. When we were seated, the hostess mentioned that there’s a 20% service fee included with each order. Fine, but then there’s an additional tip section in the checkout, and the 20% option is the default option. I wouldn’t mind tipping except there’s really no service at all. You scan the QR code to open the menu and order online, and then someone brings the food to you. There’s no one to check on you or refill water. Not a good experience.

L Ram: Can we please get a Fare Well in Atlanta! I’m so thankful I had several vegan options when visiting D.C., I knew after reading reviews I had to visit Fare Well and I’m so glad I did Very small but charming diner serving breakfast all day (Wednesday – Sunday), they also have a bar for people interested in adult beverages. Saturday and Sunday they have a brunch menu. I visited late Sunday around 3pm and there was not wait but it was pretty full inside. I was dining solo and unfortunately couldn’t try too many items, I definitely wanted to try the Buffalo Cauliflower ($12) and it was SO GOOD! I cleaned the bowl and really wish I had this recipe. Its spicy whipped cashew and cauliflower dip served with soy and sheet free tortilla chips. For my entrée I ordered Chilaquiles ($13). It was very filling and a large portion, I couldn’t finish my dish. I loved all of the ingredients and thought it was flavorful but did add some hot sauce since I like my food to have a little spice. The Chilaquiles included tofu scramble, black beans, poblanos, roasted tomato rojo sauce and cilantro crema served with roasted potatoes. I also added avocado ($3). Service was okay, my food was served with a smile which I appreciate.
Response: So glad you enjoyed your visit! Hope you visit D.C. again soon, we will be here for you when you do!

Vikram Singh: One of the best vegan spots in DC. I had the Perogies with sweet potato poutine and Oreo milkshake. Everything was delicious! I’m just sad it took me this long to get here.

Bakeshop: what do users think?


Gia Pham: the shop itself is already really cute. there’s a good variety of desserts there also. i got red velvet cupcakes and honestly they’re really good I love it! i would definitely come here again soon to try other treats that they have. and another one the price is really good for cupcakes it is buy 5 get one free :) I would totally recommend coming to this place for treats and desserts!

Marie: Ordered a birthday cake for my sister and the staff were absolutely lovely. Although I was unable to try it, my sister said the taro cake was delicious and it’s now her favorite dessert. Planning to stop by and try for myself when I’m in the area. Fairly priced for the high quality of product.

Jeff H: Bakeshop does NOT do wedding cakes but that didn't stop us! We did the stacking and made it happen. I stacked one of Bakeshop's Xtreme Sprinkles cake on top of Bakeshop's Xtreme Cookie Dough cake to make an Xtreme barrel wedding cake that tasted and looked better than any other wedding cake we tried. The cakes were delicious and everyone loved our creative and unique wedding cake. Throughout the process, we tried many of Bakeshop's cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and other delicious treats and all are very well made, made with love, and extremely delicious. Cake is not dry and cupcakes actually have a normal type of frosting so they aren't a solid piece of butter. All the employees are very welcoming, high energy, fun, and friendly. The people who work at Bakeshop seem to enjoy what they do. Highly recommend Bakeshop! Please note, Bakeshop does NOT do wedding cakes. They made that very clear. So we ordered two cakes and I made it into a wedding cake myself because we wanted their cakes on our wedding day so we made it happen. It worked perfectly for us but your experience may vary.

Yuntian Lu: The cakes are really cute and they tasted delicious. I got the sesame cake and the coconut cream cupcake and they were awesome! The sesame cake really had the sesame flavor in it and it was not overly sweet.

S M: AMAZING!! They have alot to choose from. We had the oreo cake, peanut butter creme cake and a their staple, the chocolate chip cookie, all incredibly delicious and priced well. Definitely get something from here, you won't be disappointed.

Heleen Raes: Got my boyfriend a birthday cake from this bakery and we loved it. Ordering it was really easy and it looked and tasted great. We got it delivered ($35 fee for us) and the delivery was right on time. Super nice!

Michi BS: We live in South Carolina but we came to Arlington for vacation and we went to Cheesecake Factory but it was closed because of the Snow storm, so we start looking some other options and fortunately we found this bake shop!! This place is amazing, we got cookies, key lime pie and others desserts, everything was delicious and fresh! We even got some delicious free samplers of some desserts that the nice guy of the bake shop invite us! The guy that works there was very attentive and nice! Definitely we will come back in every trip to this city!!!

Sheneil Black: Got a selection of 6 cupcakes from here, and we were impressed. The cakes are generally light, with the chocolate ones a little more dense. Flavors are on point, and these are not overly sweet. They're just right! The line up based on favorite was 1. Coconut Pandan 2. Strawberry shortcake 3. Red velvet with butter cream 4. Vegan chocolate strawberry 5. Devil's food 6. Salted caramel chocolate. Still would live to try the taro, so next time. Thank you Chris for helping me make my selection!!!

PIYUSH DHAR: The cake is beautiful. Looked so tasty. Staff is super nice and supportive. Full marks for service. Covid conscious staff. Limited parking infront of the shop. That too only on the opposite side. The only shortcoming I see now is that they only bake to order cake. Turn around time is 24 hours and then do vegan cakes so that's very good. Even then, not having some games in stock for random walk in is a bummer.

Faylinda Kodis: Love, love, love EVERYTHING I’ve eaten here. Top favorites are the Brookies - which I bring along every time I visit a friend in MD & the pistachio macaroons with such authentic texture! Whenever I buy a pistachio macaroon I eat it within seconds of walking out of the store (would love to see a coffee flavored macaroon). And I do wish Bakeshop would replace their non-recyclable clamshell containers with something more earth friendly. Please! Every cupcake is YUM but I adore the Hostess-like cupcakes with the distinctive curlicue decoration and cream center. Those were a big hit at a recent dinner party!

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!

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!

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 (!!)

ThreeFifty Bakery and Coffee Bar: what do users think?


Jessa L: Not sure I can begin to describe the deliciousness of this Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin. It is decadent yet light & fluffy. Perfect blend of spices, not overly sweet and incredibly moist. Omg DREAM MUFFIN!!! Goes perfectly with coffee. I hope there will be seating there soon? Would happily pop in to try more items 🤤🤤
Response: Jessa, there's no better way to start your day than with a pumpkin and cream cheese muffin! Our team is here to make sure you get the sweet treat you've been craving. We can't wait to see you again soon. -Michael G., Owner

Rebecca C: The best scones! Very reasonable priced coffee and food. Swing through earlier in the day if possible because they sell out of options as the day goes on. Highly recommend stopping in! No indoor seating.
Response: Rebecca, starting your fay with a coffee and a fresh scone is always the best idea! We can't wait to see you again soon. -Michael G., Owner

Marbin Gonzalez: I got lucky with parking lapped around the block once and found a spot right in front. Located just off u st a quiant little place. Right away you see all the pastries just laid out in front. Seems very busy and they keep reloading pastries. I enjoyed the orange scone a lot and want to try some more stuff.
Response: Marbin, we're so glad that you were able to find a parking spot and came in to see what we have to offer! Our scones are always freshly baked throughout the day, so you can count on it being flavorful. We can't wait to see you again soon for a chance to try something new. -Michael G., Owner

Benjamin W.: Building itself is a bit dated and could use some of work but there's only so much that can be done about that. It seems like a very new startup kind of place. Coffee is good, baked items are quite good (see quiche). I'd go back just for the food actually. This place fits the neighborhood vibe, chill and off the main roads. Glad I walked the extra 3 blocks from the Starbucks.
Response: Benjamin, our team is always here to welcome you in for a fresh cup of coffee and a Quiché to get your day going! We can't wait to see you again soon for another delicious treat. -Michael G., Owner

David Gershman: My go-to! ThreeFifty boasts such warm and lovely staff. I am always happy inside of ThreeFifty. My three favorites: butter crossiant, blueberry scone, and bacon cheddar scone. The staff treat their customers very softly and it’s always a welcoming experience. Nothing better these days than heartwarming exchanges that may last a whole second but stick with you in your heart forever.
Response: David, there's nothing better than getting your day started with a butter croissant or a scone! We can't wait to see you again soon for another sweet treat. -Michael G., Owner

Jakob Cansler: My iced coffee and quiche were both disappointing but not bad. Also would have loved to enjoy the patio on such a nice day but it was literally just some plastic benches.
Response: Jakob, our team is here to make sure you get the freshest coffee around to get your morning started! Please let us know how we can make your next experience 5 stars! We are working on upgrading our patio and currently building custom wooden tables. We can't wait to see you again soon for another great time. -Michael G., Owner

Andrew Sanders: What a great little coffee and bake shop! This place exudes warmth and coziness - but it’s not so cozy that you can’t get work done because you’re falling asleep. The space is small and the seating is limited - 4 spots on the bar at the window, maybe another 6 at the bar along the wall, and a couple small tables. For this reason, a sign on the wall asks that you only stay and use WiFi for 1 hour. Even so, great place!
Response: We're happy to be a cozy spot for you, Andrew! I'm glad you've enjoyed visiting us for some coffee and treats, and we'll be looking forward to having you back for more. See you next time! -Michael G., Owner

Michael Philip: I’ve been coming to this place since a few months ago and I think I owe the staff and management and 5 star review. Great coffee (iced mocha!) with various non-dairy selections (yay Oatmilk), and treats I’ve never seen elsewhere in the area. I’d recommend their banana bread and gluten-free oatmeal peanut butter chocolate cookie. Sometimes the place gets packed as it can only seat around 13-15 people inside but I don’t mind at all. There’s outdoor patio seating and that gets packed too, and that says a lot how the amazing the service, food, and atmosphere is at 350. I’m a block away and I’ll frequent this place for as much as I can. 🙂
Response: Michael, we appreciate you taking the time to leave a review! We're thrilled that you always enjoy stopping by for an iced mocha and some banana bread. Can't wait to see you again soon! -Michael G., Owner

Pepe C: Some of the best pastries in town and good coffee. I loved the outdoor space that since COVID they kept closed. The quiches are also top notch.
Response: Pepe, getting your day started with a pastry and a fresh coffee is always a great idea! We can't wait to see you again soon for another tasty treat. -Michael G., Owner

Martha Wilson: Very good baked goods (quiche is especially good) and Illy coffee. Lovely staff and (local) owners. Since the pandemic, this neighborhood spot has lost its serene indoor atmosphere and its charming, outdoor café space – through no fault of its own. I hope it returns to its former glory, as a welcome retreat for locals.
Response: Martha, a fresh cup of coffee and Quiché is the best way to start your morning! We can't wait to welcome you back to our counter for the charming service you know and love. -Michael G., Owner

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!

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!

Corner Bakery: what do users think?


Calvin Bryant: We we were trapped in DC because of the snow storm Jan 2022. We needed food and a place to escape from the Hilton capital hill for breakfast. Upon discovering Corner Bakery we found both. Great food, service and warm friendly atmosphere. Broccoli Cheddar soup saved the day!

Brian Hammer: This place was close to our hotel so convenient for some breakfast. A good variety of dishes and a great hazelnut coffee. I can also recommend their overnight oats with fruit. Very fair prices for washington dc.

Ukvayat Hanak: I am from rural America and this place was the closest to the prices I enjoy in the Midwest. The flavor was perfect and I will surely be seeking out a Corner Bakery the next time I am exploring DC. I felt more at home by sitting and enjoying breakfast here.

Alileiro: The food was cold. Eggs and bacon don't taste good when it's cold. The place wasn't very busy and staff was very helpful and friendly too!

Brett Daviau: Great place for a quick bite. Everyone comes here. Always a line out the door and a pile of bikes outside. Plan on wain the morning.

Athanasios Chantis: We had to wait 45 min to get our order. After the first 30 min of waiting I went to find out what is going on, only to realize that they had forgotten about it. We had ordered a plain bagel with cream cheese (not even toasted), oatmeal, scrambled eggs with bacon and latte coffee. Instead, they brought us a bagel with sesame seeds and butter, scrambled WITHOUT bacon, and NO latte. They said they could not give us a plain bagel because they were frozen! How do you call yourself a BAKERY when you serve prepacked frozen bagels?! I had to go back to o remind them that according to what is in my receipt I ordered a latte. The quality of the food and the way it looked was like a $0.99 breakfast you can get in some places. Only we paid 30x that. In fact, I'm sure that other than the latte, they bought this stuff for that amount from a place like 711, warmed it up and served there. Avoid, avoid, avoid! I'd rather have no breakfast than have it there. The word "bakery" in the name of the place is deceptive. I'm pretty sure NOTHING is actually baked there. They serve prepacked frozen food.

Daniel Sheffer: Strange location in DC. Closes early at 3. Low staff I guess it’s the times but ordering a simple sandwich was a challenge , lady didn’t know I just wanted a full sandwich not the half combo. I said ok fine give me the soup too , we don’t have soup. Bizarre experience. Needs better Management.

Jason Alipio: My wife and I are visiting DC and decided to try breakfast here. I was shocked by how bland everything was. I had to douse everything in Tabasco, salt, and pepper to give it some flavor. The onions weren't grilled, so they added a very harsh taste to the potatoes. On a positive note, the coffee was delicious.
Response: Jason We are very sorry to hear this and we'd like to learn more so our Guest Relations team may follow up with you on this issue. Would you please visit http://bit.ly/2odGMuG and complete the form located there? Thank you!

Brandyce Hill: Great looking menu but food was cold! I got the Breakfast power bowl which has eggs and when i tasted them, they were cold. I thought no big deal because it's with salad which is cold. But my husband got the pancake combo with bacon and EVERYTHING WAS COLD. He refused to take it back. Good flavors but won't be coming back.

Tamry McCauley: There are certain foods that feel like home whenever I travel... if I can find a Corner Bakery restaurant to grab some soup or a chicken pomadoro sandwich, I'm good. The soup is rich and creamy and even after walking 2 blocks it was still steaming hot when I got back to my hotel. It's a refreshing break from eating in a hotel, and the short walk was just right...this location is busy, but they got our food out pretty quickly... There are some changes with the drinks and seating area due to covid, so you may want to take that into consideration.

Response: Thanks for your review! Appreciate your support of our business and mission.

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.

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!

District Doughnut: what do users think?


Alex Witt: The donuts were lovely! Great place. A tad on the expensive side, and I only say that because I've had donuts with similar flavors for less. I would still highly recommend this place!

Emily Smith: I loved my experience at District Donut!! Very calm and welcoming environment with a delicious donut and amazing Compass cold brew. One of the only places selling coffee around Eastern Market on Mondays and it’s worth it. Hope to become a regular during my time here; staff is very friendly and helpful! Check them out! 🍩

carlos coto: Terrible . Supermarket Donut for $4. Stay away. Horrible horrible . Tough , chewy ....just awful. The coffee mist have been sitting there for hours tasted like gas station coffee. Don't go. Worse than Dunkin or Krispy Kreme . The worst I have ever had. I wish I could post a negative star

Zack Williams: I would give District a 5 star review but I was disappointed to see their offerings were not inline with the menu they had displayed on their webpage, so I dropped a star. Aside from that their stuff is fantastic and I was able to find other items to my liking without the two doughnuts I had hoped to get. The staff were friendly and the cinnamon roll was MASSIVE. Make sure you check the hours for the location you are going to because it seems each of their locations go by different hourz.

Mark Orebiyi: I had a chance to stop by District Doughnut and learn some interesting news. They changed their points system. I was pretty upset but the Manager of that branch “Tea” was able to help me out tremendously. The Crème brûlée doughnut is fantastic.

Steve Alvarado: Let me preface this first. I live in Los Angeles which is THE donut capital of the world. There is literally a donut shop on every corner. I like to try donuts wherever I visit to compare. This unfortunately was by far the worst! It is truly a 1-star place but I gave it a +1 because the counter help was nice. I got a salted butterscotch and a brown butter. The topping was nothing memorable, but not bad. However, the actual donut was the barely edible. These are yeast donuts and should be airy and light right? Nope! Was dense and chewy?! Yep chewy. I've never had a chewy donut before and hopefully never will. I noticed a few other commented on this too. And now for the worst part... the price. Each donut was $4!?!? I understand the location has a part in this, but c'mon. These should be half that, and I'm being generous. Take a hard pass and, sadly, stop by the nearest Dunkin' as it is better.

Al Lee: Visited during the pandemic.. District donuts never disappoint! I have been to their stores at the wharf and union market.. quality is always there! I was told their brown butter is one of the most popular one. Can't believe I haven't tried it before.. So Naturally, I had to try it. It was good! I also got Their strawberry glazed donut which is also delicious. Good covid precaution at this store- they only allow one customer in the store at a time Only down side is the parking but I guess that's a universal issue for dc!

Jessica McNutt: I'm not a doughnut person, but I know a good product when I see it. I went in to get doughnuts for my coworkers and the staff was super friendly and helpful. Also the doughnuts were a huge hit in the office. If you like doughnuts, stop here. Do it! Do it now!

M. M.: DC-famous doughnuts with small town friendly service. One of my favorite doughnut shops in DC. The "Cherry Blossom" and "Lemon Bar" (filled with fresh lemon curd) doughnuts were so yummy!

Kessashun Arthur: This is a pretty good, artisanal donut shop. They have quite unique flavors, and rotate them seasonally. They only have yeast risen donuts, so sorry to all of my fellow cake donut lovers. The texture is quite soft and fluffy, but I wish they were a tad bit more dense or thick to hold up after your first bite. Their salted dulce de leche filled donut was incredible! It was the perfect balance of sweet, salty, and buttery. All the others I tried were average at best. I wouldn't deter anybody from giving District Doughnut a try, but there are better donut shops in the DC area.

Corner Bakery: what do users think?


Hilda Kroll: I usually start my day when I'm in DC with hot chocolate, but today I couldn't resist something from the bakery too. The chocolate chip cookie was great, but next time I've got to get a mini chocolate Bundt. The staff is especially nice and prices are very reasonable.

Donovan McKenzie: If you want dry food and feel completely unwelcomed by the staff, this is the place for you! The couple of times I have visited this location, I was met by rude employees with little to no customer service. I'm not asking for a red carpet, but at least care enough that I am someone who is looking to grab lunch, not the attitude. You can keep that.

Pablo Parada: The staff doesn't really care of the customers. When we got there, they were chatting between them and they made eye contact with us and nothing, no even like "hey, what can I get for you?" And when I talked to them to ask for my order, they were like "ohh what do you want?" With some attitude. Then I noticed that the manager was playing with one of the girls in a very unprofessional way, touching each other like they were kids. Not cool at all!

Cory Laws: Corner Bakery is a favorite, though it's been quite awhile. I was happy to see one across the street from our hotel. Good food fast. We had the farmers and Anaheim scrambles. I usually don't cook with salt, so it was a rare pleasure to get unseasoned eggs. A nice treat.
Response: Cory Thank you so much for writing in to let us know! We’re so glad we were able to provide you with great service! We love it when you stop by!

Stephanie Ratajczak: Wonderful crew, delicious food. They have shortened hours because covid, but it's a great weekday lunch spot!
Response: Thank you for the excellent Google review. We are so happy you enjoyed your recent visit to our cafe in Washington. Don’t forget, you can cater your next event with all your Corner Bakery favorites!

Clayton Russell: The employees here are simply above and beyond on their customer service. Yes, the food is good and the selection is fantastic (you can get everything from perfectly baked snacks to a full plate breakfast special) , but where Corner Bakery really shines is its people. They treat you like family here and really care about the quality of their product and service. It is much appreciated by this customer and I’ll certainly be returning again and again because of this!
Response: Clayton, thank you so much for writing in to let us know about our wonderful employees! We’re so glad we were able to provide you with great service! We love it when you stop by!

Lisa Heilbronn: Bagel and coffee were fine, service seemed a bit disjointed but they were trying hard.

Luis Garza: Expectations were disappointed. Limited menu, not a problem. Prices and service are adequate. Quality of food and portions were substandard to what you see in the pictures and people’s reviews. I found a small fruit fly buried under my salad but because I ate outside couldn’t tell if it came like that or landed in there from being outside. Didn’t bother to investigate to be honest.
