Organic to Go

Organic to Go, a Seattle-based cafe and catering company chain who makes their meals with organic and natural ingredients, has migrated to the east coast...speficially in Washington, DC. They are America's first fast casual cafe to be USDA certified as an organic retailer, AND, they make cupcakes!
Joe Yonan, a food writer for the Washington Post, recently stopped by the cafe's new McPherson Square location to try everything from the soups to the cupcakes. Joe describes them as "a pleasant surprise: dense but moist inside; sticky-soft on top. They come in convenient carrying cups, eco-friendly because they're plant-based."
You won't find the cupcakes listed on their online menu, but apparently they have two basic flavors - vanilla with chocolate frosting or chocolate with vanilla frosting, and they're $1.99 each. You can check Organic to Go out during their cafe hours, from 6:30am to 4:00pm, at their McPherson Square location or their Metro Center location on F Street. Their Dupont Circle and Arlington locations will be opening in September, and from what I hear there are future plans to open up shop in Bethesda.
