Respond to Review of Sticky Fingers Bakery
Review: I had been looking forward to visiting Sticky Fingers for awhile (I bought the cookbook last year), and I had been hyping it up to my husband for weeks leading up to our visit to D.C. this past weekend. I actually planned our Metrorail ride from the airport so that we would head straight to Sticky Fingers for a late breakfast. The shop itself is cute, smaller than I imagined, but the decoration is colorful and fun. The staff was nice. I was kind of unsure about ordering the savory food I had seen on their online menu, as they didn't seem to be posted up on a board, so we grabbed a buffalo chicken wrap out of a "grab and go" case. We also ordered the famous sticky bun (of course) and a pecan bourbon cookie pie (cookies with buttercream in-between them). The sticky bun was not that exciting. It had an o.k. taste, but it wasn't something I was interested in eating again. I have had vegan cinnamon rolls locally that tasted about the same or better. The cookie tasted more interesting, as the buttercream was yummy, but again not something I would eat again; the cookies were too crunchy. The wrap was delicious and probably would be something I would have eaten again on another visit if I hadn't found two other restaurants that I liked a lot more (and ended up visiting multiple times). I expected to get back to Sticky Fingers during the weekend to try a cupcake, but it didn't seem worth the trip. I might give them another chance on a future trip, but I think I might be better off just making the recipes fresh from the cookbook. Overall I was disappointed, but I felt that I set myself up for it by getting so excited in advance. People who haven't eaten too many vegan sweets (like if you come from a town where you can't buy such things) will probably find it to be a nice place to visit. If you eat vegan baked goods often I would suggest not having high expectations.
