Sticky Fingers


I live in Northern Virginia, but don’t really get into DC very often. And when I do, I don’t often have time to visit any of the vegetarian restaurants in the city (though I have been to the excellent Soul Vegetarian a few times). A couple of weeks ago, though, I was fortunate enough to finally be able to stop by Sticky Fingers Bakery, a small vegan bakery just north of Dupont Circle.

I tried out a number of their goodies, including a fresh oatmeal-raisin cookie (tasty!), a half-price day-old cookie (pretty hard, but hey, half price), their creme-between-oatmeal cookies Cowvin Cookie (absolutely outstanding and sweet enough to make your teeth hurt), a muffin (great for breakfast the next day), and their soft serve ice cream (mmm… vegan soft serve). Interestingly, all that only came to $11. Eleven bucks for several days of sugary goodness? Not bad.

All of Sticky Fingers’ foods are 100% vegan and made with non-hydrogenated oils. Sweetening comes primarily from evaporated cane juice.

If you’re in the DC area, do yourself a favor and take the Metro to Dupont Circle, walk north to 1904 18th St NW, and get yourself some sweets. It’s well worth the trip.

(Sticky Fingers also does mail order for many of their items.)

    I got a chocolate raspberry cake from them for my birthday a few months back and it was AMAZING. Highly reccommended!

    I spent the summer in the D.C. area & being a hardcore vegan with an insatiable sweet tooth I couldn’t wait to go to Sticky Fingers Bakery. Food Network aired a piece about them in March & I was anxious to go sample all the yummy vegan treats. I’ve had their “I Dream of Cheesecake” with strawberry topping, Little Devils (which are like Ding Dongs on steroids), Bunny Huggers Carrot Cake, Sticky Cinnamon Buns, chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, chocolate chip cookies and brownies. My favorites are the moist carrot cake, the creamy & decadent cheesecake and the sinful & scrumptious Little Devils. Reasonable prices, mail order availability and sweets so yummy no one can tell they’re vegan make Sticky Fingers Bakery THE best place to satisfy your sweet tooth!
