Georgetown Dessert Wars Loom

It is no secret that Manhattan's Serendipity will open an outpost sometime this year/early next on the corner of Wisconsin and M, in the old Nathan's space.  I think the trademark larger-than-life frozen hot chocolate sounds like a great antidote to the nasty July and August DC heat.

But it also appears a West Coast transplant is soon coming to M Street too, with a Sprinkles location set to open in January a bit further down the block.  Direct cupcake competition!

Are the reality-show inspiring divas and/or hipsters of more subtle national acclaim ready for the invasion?  Based on the adorable mini-cupcakes gracing Merriment in Georgetown Sunday, it appears they may kill the competition with cuteness.

Get ready for some major dessert choices, Georgetown!


  1. These are both around the corner from my office! So exciting! YUM!

  2. Today's DCist reports that NYC's Magnolia Bakery may also be headed this way.
