Erin McKenna’s Bakery
A splurge, but delicious. Ask for ingredient list if you have FODMAP issues, because there is a lot of agave syrup in some items. The good news is that you can look up the ingredients beforehand. I wish this place had a public bathroom or we would have stayed for the coffee or tea. They also have vegan soft serve with optional gluten free cone. The atmosphere is very friendly (a discussion about Wow Airlines eventually involved the lady behind the counter, the gent talking about it, us, and a couple of bystanders) and there is a lot of foot traffic. Refrigerate within 1.5 hours of leaving and keep the stuff there to retain the freshness. (Unlike other baked goods, which tend to stale from being tossed into the fridge). Also in New York and Orlando.

Oh, and if you buy a bag of coffee or a box of whole leaf tea, you get a free drink with that. The atmosphere is hipster-rich and completely friendly; includes gluten-free options like chocolate chip cookies and some iffy looking gluten-free granola bars. Plugs for devices abound, and people sit with complete strangers often when the seat across from some lady or chap happens to be open.
Parking on the weekend is best about a block away near the park (across from the fire station) — free on Sundays. Don’t park in the Metro lot unless you have a Tap card and feel like spending $3. If you take the Orange line, it’s RIGHT THERE before you have to run down the stairs to catch your train to Hollywood or downtown. Let everyone else run and take a minute to catch some liquid joy.
Order first while pondering the beauty (and I’m not just talking about that mustache). Also, get the baked goods for later first. You’ll see later why (spoiler: long lines!)
Buckwheat pancakes with coconut! Blackberries! You won’t need to eat for the rest of the day! Seriously.
