My goal is to discover gluten-free food in the District to make your gluten-free diet easier.
What I got: A gluten-free red velvet cupcake. I’m guessing the letter ‘G’ on top of the frosting stands for ‘gluten.’ (They should really add an ‘F’ for gluten-free.) The cupcake itself was average. Not terrible, but I’ve definitely tasted better.
Gluten-free friendliness: You’ll only find the one gluten-free cupcake option, so you’re out of luck if you don’t like red velvet. On the plus side, the gluten-free flavor is on the menu every day. (Although it would be nice to see a rotation of flavors.)
Overall vibe: The Georgetown location is a bright space right in the middle of M street. The extremely friendly staff (probably due to a sugar rush from too many cupcakes) took the time to explain the flavors and prices. Seating is limited, so your best bet is to take the cupcake to go and walk along the nearby canal.
Gluten-free gut reaction: Would go back
