Thanks to a reader for sharing the news:

“A new dessert bakery just opened called Divinely Decadent Desserts. They opened in lower Brookland on 12th Street, NE by Rhode Island Avenue [2703 12th Street, NE] this last Saturday (March 06). I went there and had a delicious Red Velvet cupcake.”

Great news for Brookland!

    Finally a place to get a cupcake in DC!

  • Didn’t a bakery just leave Brookland for Takoma Park?

      The other “Bakery” (Capital City Cheescakes) never opened a shop in Brookland, they just did catering out of another Brookland restaurant.

      • If there was demand for a shop in that general area don’t you think Capital City Cheescakes would have stayed?

        • dartag

          I agree with you – and I wish that Cap City Cheescakes would have stayed in brrokland and open a shop here, but I guess we will have to wait and see what the success of this new place is. Although at this point if they are turning away customers because they are on lunch break, that is not a good sign.

    I like their name!

  • I live in the Brookland / Fort Totten area. There are not enough stores so I try to support them especially along the 12th street corridor. As soon as I read the PoP update I told someone who needed a cake to try them out. They arrive at the shop in the middle of the afternoon and the door was locked and they were asked to come back later as the shop was closed for lunch. New shop, posted hours on web site say nothing about closing for lunch. They were pleasant but they did not accommodate this person just a ‘come back later.’
