Coffee Break: Tout de Sweet

With the popularity of my last post in my Coffee Break series, allow me to present you with another Bethesda favorite, Tout de Sweet.

I actually was hesitant about reviewing this place as it's honestly one of my favorite shops in the area and, as famous as they already are, I wanted this place to be my hidden gem. Selfish of me, definitely, but they're not so hidden anyway as this shop currently has a 4.5 star rating on Yelp so why not rave about a magical place on my blog and give them even more business, right?
The day I discovered Tout de Sweet was like discovering Hogwarts - I couldn't believe a place like this actually existed in the US and not just in the US but so close to me! While my original draw was excellent coffee, their most popular menu item is definitely their macarons. I've been to France and trust me, these macarons are the closest in taste to the ones I had in Paris. Makes sense since the chef, Jerome Colin, is a French native with over 17 years of experience working in both France and historic Washington, DC sites. Oh-la-la! Parisenne macarons, French pastries, and perfect coffee? Why wouldn't you??
If you're in Bethesda with a sweet tooth, I would definitely check this place out. It's a wondrous place (family-owned too, like Quartermaine in my last post. Your money will be supporting this business and won't be going into a corporate machine) filled with delicious food and a whimsical atmosphere.


  1. This place sounds absolutely amazing! All delicious things I love! If I'm ever in the area I'll be SURE to stop by!

  9. Dear Deborah, I want to tell you that you are not really nice: to show here such a wonderful place which is so far away from Bavaria that I can't visit it makes me a bit sad :) But nevertheless I thank you, at least I got a wonderful impression from that nice place and you discovered finally this place <3 Happy weekend!
