The cupcakes at Baked & Wired are the biggest and best you can get in DC. Instead of waiting in the hour line for kid-sized stuff at Georgetown Cupcake, wait 30 minutes for the much better and very adult-sized options in this spot off of M Street. If you aren’t in the mood to eat a cupcake the size of your face, they also have biscuits, quiche, and other pastries.

Ghibellina is a neighborhood Italian spot in Logan Circle. You’ll come for the pizzas and pastas, but stay for the cozy vibes and friendly service.
