My goal is to discover gluten-free food in the District to make your gluten-free diet easier.
1370 Park Road, NW, Washington, DC 20010
What I got: The chocolate chip cookie and chocolate mocha cupcake (topped with coffee beans!) are two delicious gluten-free dessert options.
Gluten-free friendliness: Sticky Fingers is firstly a vegan bakery and cafe, but there are enough gluten-free options to keep your mouth satisfied for multiple visits. Fun fact: the gluten-free cupcake flavors are always chocolate-based. The newest gluten-free item, “Silly Bonez,” is a sweet sandwich of peanut butter between two pieces of chocolate cake. (With the price of $4.75, you might want to bring a friend along to split this treat.) As for their savory menu, there are a few salads as well as items like the breakfast burrito and quesadilla that can be made gluten-free.
Overall vibe: The retro decor gives the space a funky, unique attitude that is unlike other bakeries. The food is so good, even people who don’t fit into the non-vegan or non-gluten categories like to come here. You can find their products all around DC and at local Whole Foods Markets. (You won’t, of course, see the shiny pink chairs and mint green walls.)
Gluten-free gut reaction: Would go again.
