Topping the list is Sticky Fingers. Located at 1370 Park Road NW in Columbia Heights, it is the highest-rated budget-friendly vegan restaurant in Washington, boasting four stars out of 895 reviews on Yelp. 

The site can tell you a thing or two more about the bakery.

"Doron Petersan, a longtime vegan animal activist with a discerning sweet tooth and nutrition background, decided once and for all to do something about the lack of rich and satisfying desserts for those who eschew animal products," the business says on its Yelp profile. 

Furthermore, we found this about the business's signature items: "We specialize in egg and dairy-free desserts and deli foods — all 100% vegan," it states on Yelp. "From sticky cinnamon buns to wedding cakes, sandwiches to lasagna, we can satiate a sweet tooth or provide for your next lunch meeting. Come into our award-winning cafe for free Wi-Fi during the week, lunch specials, delicious coffee drinks and meatless meals."
