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.)
