You’ve got Questions. We’ve got Answers.

Do you take orders?

Yes. You can order online from this website for pickup. You can also call the shop and speak with us to place your order. For questions after hours, email us -

How much advance notice is required for orders?

We don't have rigid rules, it's a bakery not the IRS. More notice is always better. For pickup orders please give at least one day advance notice. For delivery orders we need a little more lead time so we can arrange delivery with a driver. We understand how things go, so if you need something last minute call the shop and we will try our best to make it happen.

Can my order be delivered?

Yes. Delivery is available to Washington DC and Northern VA. For delivery orders please call the shop and we’ll set it up. Delivery fee varies based on location/day/time and starts at $15.

What if I need to cancel an order?

Please call us to cancel your order. Any order canceled with 48 hours notice will receive a refund. Orders canceled with less than 48 hours notice can not be refunded.

Can I stop in to pickup what I Need?

Of course! Cupcakes, macarons, cookies, treats and more are available everyday while cakes and pies have to be ordered in advance. You can also call us or order online to ensure you get what you want in case we sell out.
