Sweet Lobby on Capitol Hill - Report

A lot will be made of the macarons here and perhaps the cupcakes. One the latest trend, the other maybe a fading trend. Neither are top notch. Macarons are too sweet. Cupcakes a bit too dense.

What is really exciting about this small dessert store are the unusual eclairs. They are shaped like flying saucers. They are a large dessert for only $2.75, so they are the bargain of the lot. I tried all three flavors on display: a floral combo, passionfruit green tea, and chocolate caramel. All were excellent, though it is really hard to resist the caramel.
