On Saturday, my partner and I walked down U and 14th streets looking for a dessert to take to a party. Not being able to find anything, we were returning to Bloomingdale empty handed via Florida Avenue. To our surprise, we noticed a new shop at 312 Florida Avenue NW called Kuumba Kollectibles. Although it looked like a place for art, women’s jewelry, gift cards, etc, their sign mentioned sweets. Figuring we had nothing to lose, we ducked inside and were thrilled to find not only a very nice shop but one that sells desserts! The very nice ladies running the place offered us samples of sweet potato pie and banana cream pudding, both of which were fantastic. We were in heaven, unable to believe we discovered a nice new shop in almost Bloomingdale and walked out with a very reasonably priced and extremely good sweet potato pie and lemon/vanilla cake.
I’ve attached a picture of the pie, which cost $15 — a heck of a lot cheaper and better than elsewhere. Thanks — and run, don’t walk, to get some awesome pie!
