Raresweets Occupies a Unique Slice of DC’s Dessert Scene

Yelp reviewers say that there's something unique about Raresweets. Some people love the hip vibe that permeates the place, while others say it's the staff’s laid-back attitude, but just about everyone agrees that this DC area bakery is worth a visit.

The sweets you'll find at this combination coffee shop and bakery are, indeed, rather rare, and include everything from passion fruit-jalapeno sorbet to pumpkin bourbon cake. Add a couple of cookies still warm from the oven and a cup of hot chocolate (with house-made marshmallows!) for an extra-special treat. Interested in picking up single slice of traditional chocolate cake? No problem; just step up to the counter and the staff will box one up to go. Want to get an entire custom cake to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion? Stop by to get inspired by what's in the display case, and then meet with the staff to design your own unique dessert.
