Hi -

We're going to visit my sister in Washington DC. She tells me that there are a lot of gluten free bakeries. It is ridiculous how excited I am since the one where I live closed a while back.

Does anyone have a favorite they can recommend?

I second Sweet Sin! There's a little cafe in Bethesda, Lilit, that carries a lot of their desserts and other goodies. You can get a great lunch or dinner there. They're quick to tell you if you need to know if something has other allergens in it, as well, or if they can make something with a substitution. They carry gluten-free beer.

There is apparently a cupcake place near where the Capitals play that have amazing gluten free cupcakes. Someone was telling me about this recently and of course I forget the name of the place already.

As far as I know there is no exclusively gluten free bakery in this area. Sweet Sin is in Baltimore. Lillit in Bethesda, MD does sell their products, as do most Whole Foods. Heidelberg Bakery in Arlington, VA has a WONDERFUL chocolate raspberry cake that's gluten free, but the bakery isn't. Some of the other local bakeries will have some gluten free products. But of course you take your chances with them since there's an awful lot of regular flour flying around.

Now, if someone knows of a bakery that's 100% gluten free in this area please, PLEASE tell me I'm wrong! :P

(my parents live in Pittsburgh and I always go to Gluuteny while I'm there.)

It is called Red Velvet Cupcakery. Also, Cake Love, is another cupcake place that has gluten-free cupcakes. Cake Love's vegan cupcakes are also gluten-free (the icing part is vegan but the cake is gluten-free).

There is going to be a gluten-free bakery opening up in Alexandria (Del Ray). http://happytartbakery.com/index.html
I don't think it has opened yet though.

DC does not have a gluten free bakery.

The guy who started Cake Love, Warren Brown, used to have another very nice bakery across the street (on U) maybe it was called Love Cafe where it was very civilized, you could go in and sit down. He was featured in many magazines and Fox News Sunday even. Now Love Cafe is gone, and all that's left of Warren Brown (of DC) in DC is this tiny cramped, awkward Cake Love that more times than not, does not have gluten-free cupcakes. I know - I stop by there regularly.

As someone who's lived here a very long time, DC is disappointing. Well, it's just not that good a food town to begin with (too many singles in a hurry) and for gluten-free options, it's a struggle. I'm sick of it.

Suburbs are a different story.
