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


  • 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.
  • Excellent cupcakes
  • Their macarons are awesome!
  • Famous for their macaroons, but my fav is the Sweet Potato cupcake
  • 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!!!!
  • Great macaroons in a rainbow variety of flavors
  • Madeleines, macaroons and gourmet cupcakes, oh my! This is where you stock up should the queen drop in for tea.
  • Eat a cupcake there and get some macarons to go!
  • Theres nowhere to sit inside, so plan on taking your dessert to go.
  • Grab a free "Sweet Ride" bike tour map at
  • "Chocolate chocolate chocolate" cupcake is awesome! Cake itself tasted kinda stale, but the ganache frosting made up for it - very deep, rich, and velvety-smooth (and served in a huge amount)
  • The sweet potato and banana foster cupcakes are my two favorites
  • when in doubt, always get the mactop
  • I love the macaroons
  • Incredible coconut cupcakes!
  • Amazing cupcakes and macaroons! Perfection
