Does Capitol Hill really need another special interest lobby? What if your special interest is French macarons and cupcakes?

The Sweet Lobby, a new boutique bakery, is poised to open soon on Barracks Row at 404 Eighth St. SE. Aiming to please all sides of the sugary trend wars,
the new shop promises to offer both cupcakes with their "nostalgic
perfection" and Parisian macarons boasting "refined elegance."

The macarons, looking tres jolie in photos by Red Shoes Photography,
will come in a variety of flavors like cappuccino, lavender, matcha,
rose, orange ginger, and pecan with dulce de leche (yes, please!).

Sweet Lobby will also offer shortbread cookies, madeleines,
European-style hot chocolate and its own private-label line of aromatic
loose leaf teas.
