This Penn Quarter newcomer, from the same owners as the adjoining Red Velvet Cupcakery, specializes in European-style pastries. Chef Lindsay Meehan whips up creations like Danish topped with blueberry compote and slices of butterkuchen—a thin German sheet cake stuffed with pastry cream. Lunchtime brings sandwiches served on house-baked bread.
