Great Local Bakery & Study Spot.
Love Cafe ought to open more locations in the area - if I was still living in the U St. neighborhood I'd frequent this spot more often. I'm a huge fan of CakeLove's baked goods, especially their big, well-frosted cupcakes and their unique cake flavors. My favorite is their chocolate cake with cream and chocolate ganache. It's a perfect way to reward yourself after a hard day or a long week. And if you're looking for something savory to go before that slice of cake, LoveCafe offers sandwiches that are pretty solid -splurge on a grilled cheese with bacon if you're really going all out!
Citysearch Editorial Review.
Just adjacent to CakeLove--the bakery from lawyer-turned-baker Warren Brown--U Street locals gather at this cafe to work on laptops, meet neighbors for coffee and espresso or enjoy cupcakes and other sweet treats baked in the open kitchen across the street.
