DC Dessert Menu

Best Desserts in DC

Satisfy your sweet tooth at Founding Farmers DC with our delicious, scratch-made selection of treats and sweets. From first-timers to regulars, our dessert menu in DC is always a crowd pleaser.

From our Uncle Buck’s Beignets to our specialty cakes, like our Farmer Ellen’s Carrot Cake and Vanilla Bean Cheesecake, to our house-churned ice cream, sorbet, and milkshakes to a fresh plate of warm cookies, there is truly something delicious for everyone. If you’re stopping by in the summer months after a day of touring the White House and the Lincoln Memorial with your family, we recommend cooling down with The Very Best Milkshake made with our house-churned ice cream. For a wintertime treat, you can’t go wrong with a hot chocolate (perhaps spiked with our award-winning Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro) and some comforting Blue Ribbon Apple Pie or our Seasonal Fruit Crisp.

Whether you are joining us just for dessert or for a full meal, we hope you will consider enjoying your dessert with a steaming cup of our First Bake Blend original drip coffee or a glass of wine from our special selection of wines, including our own proprietary rosé made in collaboration with expert vintners.

If you’re someone who waits eagerly for a little sweet ending to your meal or someone who likes to get dessert all on its own, come on by Founding Farmers DC to see what sweet scratch-made treats we’re making. If possible, we recommend making a reservation.


We serve award-winning fried chicken and donuts.
