You may have seen the line out the door at Baked & Wired and thought to yourself, "Can a cupcake really be good enough to be worth waiting in line for?" According to literally thousands of reviews on sites like Yelp, yes, these cupcakes are worth the wait. To be fair, the line moves pretty quickly, so it likely won’t be more than 10 minutes or so. But even if you had to wait twice that long for a chocolate “cupcake of doom” or a “vanilla vanilla” special, regulars say it’d be time well spent.
Vegan and gluten-free options are plentiful, making this place an appealing option for any sweet tooth. Even if cupcakes aren’t your thing, there are dessert bars, pies, cookies, brownies, and more baked goods to suit your fancy. A full service espresso bar and a variety of freshly baked breads round out the selection. Come find out why so many call this place DC’s best bakery.
