The unique flavor combo, the crisp pastry crust and the all around decadence make for an unforgettable, mouthwatering experience at Pie Sisters. Owned and operated by a trio of Washingtonian sisters, the local pie shop is a necessary stop for your palette while in the District. The bourbon chocolate pecan pie is truly genius, managing to balance flavors and create a delicious treat that is tamed down on the sweetness.
This French pastry shop prides itself on the quality of “old-fashioned desserts.” Reminiscent of perhaps the 1920s in Paris, the sweet meringue pastries are delicate and refined, melting on your tongue. Each bite of the airy treat is pure bliss. The store is authentic, with a French chef behind the delicacies.
The colorful cakepoppery is located across the street from The National Zoo. Buy a single, dozen, or full bouquet of pops in a wide range of flavors: red velvet, lemon and cookies n’ cream, to name a few. Learn to bake your own delicacies with its cakepop making classes. Baked by Yael also offers homemade bagels and various sweet treats, such as delicious raspberry bars.
