Baked & Wired in Washington, D.C.
"Sweets made by people, not by factories" might as well be the tagline for this warm Georgetown hideaway with handcrafted espresso drinks (tea fans: Their yerba mate is perfection). The family-owned business made Travel & Leisure's 2015 list of America's Best Bakeries, and you'll quickly see why: The smell upon entering is totally intoxicating. Carb-lovers will swoon over their signature cakecups, individual wrapped portions of cake topped with decadent frosting. You might want to nosh on their German Chocolate, but we're all about their "I Can't Believe It's Vegan," which may just fool even the staunchest of dairy aficionados.
