If you’re looking for instant gratification, Georgetown Cupcakes is not the place for you. It’s delicious, don’t get me wrong. I scarfed down two cupcakes in almost no time at all.
The thing is, you’ll have to be willing to wait for your sugar fix. The line was about a half hour long when we got there. Being there with friends, time passed quicker, but I wouldn’t recommend flying solo. It’d get frustrating fast. Fortunately, the hardworking employees were kind enough to bring out cups of ice water for us while we waited in the blazing heat.
An important note: don’t go straight to the Smithsonian or any other museum after Georgetown Cupcakes if you plan to buy more than you can eat. You can’t take food in, which was a fascinating discovery for us that resulted in me eating a total of four cupcakes in the span of a couple hours, and the tragic loss to a trashcan of several more.
