If your kid is begging for a popsicle at every meal, skip the sugar-laden, plastic wrapped kind and head to Pleasant Pops newest downtown brick and mortar for a fresh, homemade treat. Many of the pops come with veggies blended in, so technically it could be dinner. Sssshhhh!
Just for Petite Palates
Made with mostly local produce and dairy from farmers’s markets, Pleasant Pops are good and good for you. First timers can stick with kid faves like Strawberry Ginger Lemonade, Cookies & Cream, and the Guac Pop (which is made with avocado and lime).

Pops Plus
Not in the mood for a popsicle? The small cafe also serves up a mighty menu full of coffee from Ceremony Coffee Roasters, fresh baked pastries (croissants!!) every morning from BakeHouse, and other treats from local D.C. producers.
Stay for a While
Located on the ground floor of The Woodward Building, there is wheelchair/stroller access into the cafe where there are four small tables and seating for up to eight guests. Outside,there are two big picnic tables with umbrellas that could easily fit a small crowd or family. Can you say, “family date night”? There’s also some fun “pop art” to pose for pics with. #yummy
