We are on the road this week and we'll be showing you what we ate in Northeast!
In DC/Virginia area, we found The Happy Tart. They are known for gluten free goodies.
Just so you know, it is in Del Ray area. It's a neat little shopping and dining area. Parking might be challenge, but if you drive too fast, you will miss the place... as you can see, it's tucked in a side of an alley.
Look at that cute little cart... I love it!
Inside, there's the delicious dessert case. You have your frangipane, cookies, macarons!!!
Since it's Macaron Friday, I have to give you the obligatory macaron shots! That's a pistachio mac!
Here we have violette flavor.
It was definitely more almond-y flavor than normal. It's also very chewy. Although, I think I'd like it more if they would put it in a refrigerated case.
Here's what else they have: pistachio cupcake (which by the way happened to have a huge bubble when they baked it). The frosting was quite nice though.
Then we have a s'more cupcake. It was nice and marshmallowy for sure... I like how it's chewy on the marshmallow part. You can tell the cupcake is GF but it's not so obvious that you wouldn't like it.
They also have soup, bread (which I heard tastes closed to the real thing). We tried their quiche, but it is not cheap. On top of that, they also have mixes for you to bake your own cookies and lemon bar.
