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.


Check out the bakery's Facebook page or Twitter for updates on its arrival.

Yay for equal macaron-cupcake opportunity.

I tried some of Sweet Lobby's macarons at a recent event and I was surprised by how special they are. This is not your typical bakeshop confection. Light and creamy with a bit of crisp in the shell. Some flavors are refreshing and novel while others are exquisitely comforting. Hurry up and open!

I was introduced to the macaron (not to be confused with macaroons) by the owners of The Sweet Lobby at a recent event. I can't tell you how fantastic they are! They are delicate and delicious. Can't wait until I can get my hands on them regularly!

I'm in Trinidad and my aunt surprised me with one of the cupcakes. I must say that these deserts are inexplicably satisfying. Kudos to Sweet Lobby and I hope you all have plans to go international... Trinidad NEEDS a Sweet Lobby :)
