red velvet cake

I am seriously craving red velvet cake. Does anyone know where I can get any in DC. I don't have a car and probably won't venture too far from NW, so I realize this search might be futile. If anyone has any suggestions, please share! Thanks!

    The Harris-Teeter in Pentagon Row makes a pretty good one. Take metro to Pentagon City, walk through food court and garage. In plaza behind mall.

      For some reason I feel like they might have it at Busboys and Poets near U St. But I would call and ask first. (btw if you can't get the red velvet cake...you should def. try their chocolate layer cake...its AMAZING!!!)

          I know you need metro but if you are ever in Alexandria, Buzz on Slaters has great Red Velvet cupcakes. Moist unlike most restaurant's cakes.

            Try Reeves Bakery at 13th and G NW (Near Metro Center). They are only open on weekdays until 6pm but have cupcakes that are quite good. Definitely better than Cakelove and probably better than what I had at Baked & Wired. Much cheaper too! I think they're 1.25 each. And they have a nice Red Velvet version.

            My wife and I tried about 5 different cupcakes. The best were the ones without a filling squirted in and thankfully Red Velvet falls in this category.
