Sweet Lobby on Capitol Hill - Report
A lot will be made of the macarons here and perhaps the cupcakes. One the latest trend, the other maybe a fading trend. Neither are top notch. Macarons are too sweet. Cupcakes a bit too dense.
What is really exciting about this small dessert store are the unusual eclairs. They are shaped like flying saucers. They are a large dessert for only $2.75, so they are the bargain of the lot. I tried all three flavors on display: a floral combo, passionfruit green tea, and chocolate caramel. All were excellent, though it is really hard to resist the caramel.
Good point! No donuts....
But it does make me think about my recent trip to GBD Chicken and Donuts. A donut there is about $2.50 and the eclair at Sweet Lobby is $2.75.
The eclair at SL is so far superior to the donut at GBD, they should not even exist on the same planet. Like comparing a dry-aged ribeye to cube steak.
