The Sweet Lobby in Washington DC knows how to stay on top of the waves. First, it was their sensational cupcakes meant to delight all the senses. Then, they expanded to Parisian macarons, another tasty trend sweeping the nation. Finally, The Sweet Lobby offered special Obama and Romney themed baked goods for Election Day 2012 — they've truly capitol-ized on their location near Capitol Hill. As for the cupcakes, each is baked daily, topped with decadent, yet light, frostings. The Daily Meal's must-try flavor: Ginger-White Chocolate (a vanilla cupcake, infused with fresh ginger, topped with a whipped white chocolate-fresh ginger frosting and finished with white-chocolate dipped candied ginger). — Marilyn He, 11/8/2012

Amazing cupcakes and macarons!! No wonder they won Cupcake Wars!
Lauren Hill
Famous for their macaroons, but my fav is the Sweet Potato cupcake
Washington Post
Go for the macarons. Creamy sweet potato is unique, the passion fruit/milk chocolate heady. Other great picks include black-and-white bubbly, a peanut butter and jelly, or a cheese-laced variety.

The Green Tea Cupcake is my FAV!!
Macaroons are decent but the Cupcakes were lacking in flavor and disappointing!!!
Try the 2 PBnJ, Green Tea, Creole Cacao, Guava, & Vanilla Violet - I love macarons from here!!!!

The macarons (not to be confused with macaroons) are delicious! But also try a "Cupcake Wars" winning cupcake!
