Respond to Review of Sticky Fingers Bakery
Review: This D.C. establishment has certainly grown from its downstairs days on 18th Street, and with a proportional increase in customers. They offer a nice area to sit-down, both inside and out (when the weather is warm), and have free wi-fi. The atmosphere is very welcoming and spacious, which leads one to believe more seating could be placed somewhere! The selection of sweet and savory food is pretty good, so for those accompanying a sweet-tooth fanatic, a tempeh sandwich or pesto salad could be found. However, for all that Sticky Fingers has to offer, the cakes and cupcakes leave something to be desired. They are often dry and the frosting lacks depth of flavor. Additionally, a few other items that I have had from Sticky Fingers have left much to be desired, including muffins that are dry, attempts at doughnuts and some of the cookies. Most of the products that I eat at Sticky Fingers leave a film in my mouth! The sticky buns, their namesake product, are good, but all that white flour leaves one feeling weighted down! Besides, they are actually cinnamon rolls, sticky buns have gooey caramelized nut topping, not dry icing-drizzled tops. I've also heard word on the street that the sprinkles are not vegan. The sandwiches are relatively tasty, but using white bread all the time can get rather monotonous. Finally, I have placed a couple of orders here, both times I was not happy with the service. It seemed as though one time they had literally forgotten my order, hastily throwing together items from the case into a box while I waited. There is much potential, and I wait for the day when Sticky Fingers begins to take steps in that direction.
