5 Women-Owned Businesses in Washington, D.C. Shop local and support women-owned businesses throughout the D.C. metro area


This Women’s History Month (and beyond) pull your wallet to support women-owned businesses, and get to know the locals who make the D.C. community so unique. Here are just five notable places worth visiting during your Club Quarters Washington, DC, White House stay.

Calabash Tea and Tonic – Owned by Veronica Cooper, this community café celebrates local artists while tempting locals with specialty teas, coffees and herbal tonics sourced directly from farmers.

Centrolina –  James Beard Award winner Amy Brandwein has made her mark in D.C. with her Italian restaurant and market. Dine on regional dishes and specialty goods, along with a robust wine list curated by Wine Director Alissa Wilmina Diaz.

Georgetown Cupcakes – Delicious designer cupcakes? Yes, please. Sisters Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne opened their flagship shop in Georgetown in 2008 and continue to draw enthusiasts for their signature red velvet cupcakes and other sweet treats made from the highest-quality ingredients.

Ice Cream Jubilee – Experience creativity in a cone, thanks to Victoria Lai’s brainchild. With several locations throughout D.C., this modern ice cream shop features flavors like Thai iced tea, citrus Sichuan peppercorn (seasonally), and springtime’s cherries jubilee.

Labyrinth Games & Puzzles – Leave it to an enterprising mom to find a solution that’s become a D.C. success story. Labyrinth is dedicated to bypassing screen time in favor of specialty games, puzzles and other hands-on activities.
