This place has been serving up consistently great sweet French pastries and cakes for many years and I love to stop by, when I'm ready to spend for something special.

Pastries by Randolph is my go-to place for birthday and anniversary cakes. They will write a message on any cake while you wait. I have never been disappointed in their selection or deliciousness. Around the holidays they have pre-packaged cookie platters to bring to the office or give as thank you gifts. They specialize in sweet, not savory. If you... More

We love the pastries and cakes at Randolphs. I do find that they are very expensive but you get what you pay for! We drive a long way but are always happy with the delectable and beautiful cakes and pastries when we are eating our way through them!!!

There's a reason why this place has such a great reputation. The service is superb - you're their sole focus as they patiently help you choose from among a wide range of delicious options. But the best thing is the taste of their goods - excellent chocolate and wonderful fruit based options too. Just so perfectly done!

We stopped at Pastries by Randolph on a whim and did not regret it. The choice they offer is large and their pastries and pies are extremely tempting and tasty too. We bought some cupcakes and brownies and liked both. The people behind the counter were pleasant and helpful. Would stop by if I am in the area.

If I ever get back to DC, this is where I'll head first! They have the best European desserts that are worth every penny. We went on a Saturday afternoon, and they were very busy. The people working were very patient while I filled up a small box worth of goodies. The fruit tarts and the Lintzer cookies were my... More

Randolph’s is absolutely a place to visit whether for a treat, buying a special dessert, dessert and baked goods for a holiday or ordering a custom baked good. They offer a wonderland of sweets that are like looking into a case of miniature art. Each is more enticing than the next and they offer options I have never seen anywhere... More

I went to Randolph's with "an idea" and Chris help me make it real. The cake was beautiful but much more important it was OUTSTANDING in taste. There was not one piece left. Top layer delicious chocolate and bottom layer was white with strawberry. Both wonderful but the chocolate was to die for! Can not recommend this place enough. Chris... More

Our daughter who lives in Arlington introduced us to this pastry shop. Wonderful selection of pastries. Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. Try their macaroons or chocolate croissants.

I was in there today and found the selection good, though not overwhelming. Good pastries and good bread. Friendly, helpful service.
