Amazing

Everything I have tried has been amazing. The pumpkin cheesecake is to die for. The lunch sandwiches are also very good.

Gerard's is my go to place for special occasion desserts or if I'm feeling greedy and I want a delectable treat. I've tried pretty much everything on their menu, but their Carrot Cake is my all time fave.

I am not a big fan of cake, but this is the best cake I've ever had in my life. And very reasonably priced.

My mom said she wanted a strawberry shortcake for her birthday. Being that it was last minute, I couldn't order a cake from any where because most places require at least aday to make it fresh. I remembered the deserts by Gerrard place but my mom had a bad experience with them before and specifically told me to not get... More

The cakes are good however the service is appalling. When I picked up my birthday cake the order was wrong. They offered no apology, the only thing I could do was to take the take the wrong cake. I had a party already planned for that day. Their customer service is terrible. They will no longer get my business, my... More

I just visited DC and had the pleasure of enjoying the awesome strawberry shortcake prepared by Desserts by Gerard. It was mouthwatering delicious! Definitely must go there when I return to DC. Kudos to Chef Gerard.

My kids love this place. My mom found this visiting me one day abd we have been hooked ever since. Love their individual cakes and pastries. The cookies are my kids and dogs favorite (yes dog even they want a good treat too). Man times I've had to travel to the mountains with one of their coconut cakes for mom.... More

I always make it a point to stop at Desserts by Gerard every Friday. They have a great variety of desserts here. Their almond croissant is delicious. My coworkers enjoy the pastries that I periodically get from here.

Every time we are in the Oxon Hill area we stop in for a sandwich or dessert. The ham and cheese croissant is excellent! Any dessert that you try there, will be delicious. It is a small shop, so there isn't really any spot to sit and eat there. The desserts are kind of pricey, but worth every penny!

Talented pastry chef from France. Pretty much any cake or pastry you will find there. This bakery places high importance on presentation. Lunch menu items available such as sandwiches and a few sides. Tuna, and turkey sandwich with cranberries good. Looking for bargains? Then get day old pastries and slices of cake marked way down. Dessert display beautiful. Not quite... More
