Cupcakes are serious business in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. There are multiple shops offering the sweet treats and lines around the block aren’t rare. But for the best of the best, head to Baked & Wired, an off-the-beaten-path local spot.
Baked & Wired, located just off central M Street, offers a wide range of cupcake flavors, including Funfetti and rich chocolate hazelnut. Also on offer are cookies, cookie sandwiches and various sweet treats. Separated by a wall, a small coffee shop also delivers made-to-order drinks, including seasonal specials and house-made iced teas.
The cupcakes and cookies at Baked & Wired are huge, giving you substantial bang for your cupcake buck. The baked goods are delicious, perfectly balancing the cake to frosting ratio. Cupcakes not your thing? Then opt for a cookie-sandwich, featuring rich frosting or ice cream centers. The gingersnap-lemon buttercream cookie is refreshing and zesty without being too sweet.
The location is also perfect, just off the bustling M Street and bordered by the historic canal. Just a short walk away is the riverfront, with plenty of places to enjoy your sweets and do some people watching. Or stick around and sit at the shop itself. Seating may be limited, but the no-frills, artsy decor is perfect for digging into your cupcake.

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
