A Cute Cupcakery in Dupont.
Hello Cupcake is definitely a great spot for those cupcake cravings, especially if you're in Dupont/Farragut area. I'm a fan of their carrot cake cupcake and their originals are always solid. But if you're really looking for top-notch cupcakes, Hello Cupcake falls just short. They're certainly better than any grocery store baked good but you can find better in DC elsewhere. I suggest going for one of their select flavors that are made unique to the day. Hello Cupcake is also great if you're a vegan or need a gluten-free dessert, since they're one of the few spots in DC that does offer those options (and are still delicious)!

Bedecked in pink, white and brown with two crystal chandeliers hanging over the tiny space, this gourmet cupcake shop in the heart of Dupont Circle sells cupcakes in a variety of flavors; staples such as peanut butter, carrot, and a vegan and gluten-free option are available every day, while other flavors are available on a rotating basis.
