Restaurant Review: Washington D.C.'s Sticky Fingers Sweets and Eats

 When I visited D.C., there was one restaurant that I didn't want to miss. Even though it was a little off the beaten path, Sticky Fingers' tempting menu gave it a central place on our itinerary. As if the award-winning cupcakes and mouth-watering cinnamon rolls weren't enough, they also offer a modest selection of breakfast and cafe entrees. Read on for the full review.

  • Fun and classy retro decor
  • All-vegan
  • Gluten-free options available
  • Amazing baked goods
  • Variety of entrees
  • Free wifi
  • Casual atmosphere
  • A little off the beaten path
The food at Sticky Fingers was so delicious that we ate there for lunch one day and returned for brunch the next. The cupcakes are simply stunning, and, as my man put it, were "some of the best cupcakes I've ever had, vegan or not." The cinnamon rolls are also blissfully soft and big enough to share. Food for both brunch and lunch was quite tasty. The selection does use more meat substitutes and vegan cheese than some places, but it was fun to have vegan versions of comfort food.

When we first visited Sticky Fingers, we walked there from the Smithsonian zoo. It was a bit of a hike, and we didn't anticipate the uphill nature of the walk. However, the restaurant is located fairly close to the Columbia Heights metro station, so I would suggest taking the metro for much easier access. There isn't a huge dining room, but we never had trouble finding seating. The prices were moderate, but made sense given the quality and rarity of some of the ingredients.

Sticky Fingers was by far my favorite restaurant in D.C. I'd highly recommend it for vegans and non-vegans alike.
