Cool off with a Baked & Wired ice cream sandwich

1052 Thomas Jefferson Street NW Stop by the family-owned coffee shop and bakery just south of Georgetown’s historic C&O Canal for chocolate ice cream sandwiched between two homemade peanut butter cookies. As a matter of fact, grab the Tessita cupcake, too. You’ll thank us later.

People watch with a picnic at Georgetown Waterfront Park
