Baked and Wired. Best gluten free baked goods in DC

This weekend I did some shopping in Georgetown, and I shop best on a steady fuel of sugar and coffee. I’d heard that Baked and Wired carried gluten free baked goods, so I decided to go and see what was on the menu. I wish that their online menu was separated for gluten free items so I knew what to expect, but I decided to take a chance and go anyway.

And boy am I glad I did.

The first thing that caught my eye was a strawberry and chocolate cupcake. But, that’s not really my style.

Then I asked if they had anything else that was gluten free and they pointed me to this.

The best gluten free baked good I’ve had in DC. And in my top ten gluten free desserts I’ve ever had. Not exaggerating.

Caramel blondie, chock full of peanuts, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and caramel sauce. Insanely rich and buttery, chewy, and full of fun toppings.

I savored every bite, and pulled out some will power to save half of it for later.


Do you see that giant lump of caramel? And drool a bit? Yeah, I thought so.

They also had flourless peanut butter cookies. But who would get that when there’s the blondie from heaven available?

Their coffee is also great – I had an Americano made with Stumptown espresso. The guys who work there are a bit smug, but I overlooked it as I was too busy stuffing my mouth with caramel to care.

Georgetown and Serendipity III

Check out where I was yesterday.  Doesn’t it look almost like Florida?

Well, it wasn’t.  It was the beautiful Georgetown waterfront. Fountains, palm trees, and boats included.

Another great thing that Georgetown has?

Serendipity 3!

Too bad the gluten free meal options were less than robust.  What I was really feeling like was a salad, which my friend got to enjoy.  But the waiter informed me that NONE of the salad dressings were gf.  Say what?  Maybe they just say that to be careful, but it seemed strange to me.  Either way, I played it safe, trying not to have a gf pitfall, and ordered an omelette instead.

My Central Park omelette, with coleslaw on the side:

The coleslaw was actually my favorite part!  It was really fresh and crunchy.

I should have asked if any of their monumental ice cream sundaes or frozen hot chocolates are gluten free, but I was too full to think about it.  Because they look amazing.

There’s always next time!
