Washington DC Part 3 {Where we ate}

June 17, 2015

This is my final post about my recent trip to Washington, DC! I wanted to share where we ate, because we went a lot of amazing places, and hopefully provide you with suggestions if you're ever in the DC area!

In Georgetown we went to The Tombs for lunch which was recommended by Carly from The College Prepster. For desert we went to Olivia Macaron where I had a strawberry champagne macaron (it was my first one!) and I must say it changed my life! It was amazing! 

For breakfast one morning we went to Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, which was highly recommended when we were searching for doughnut places to try. I am not very adventurous so I only got a vanilla doughnut but they had some really crazy flavors like "maple bacon" for those who are interested in trying something different. 

One of my favorite places that we tried was GCDC (Grilled Cheese District of Colombia!). They had every type of grilled cheese you could ever dream of and you could completely customize it! I am sort of obsessed with grilled cheese and GCDC was fantastic! 

My favorite place we ate on the trip was Sugar Shack. It is a little doughnut place in Alexandria, and it served what were quite possibly the best doughnuts I have ever had. They were huge (my dad and I got a bunch cause we wanted to try them all) and we definitely overcommitted. My favorite was the "Apple Cake Doughnut" which was different than your average doughnut but not too crazy for me either. 

On our last night we went back to Georgetown and tried Georgetown Cupcake from the TLC show "DC Cupcakes." They did not disappoint. At any point there is a line stretching out the door to try them. They had countless flavors to choose from though a few flavors had sold out as we got there right around closing. I tried the "Vegan Apple Cinnamon" cupcake, far from my usual vanilla, and I was very impressed! 

Enjoying a milkshake and cupcakes on our last night!
