Confetti is a locally woman-owned ice cream cafe, bakery, and event venue located at 4545 42nd St NW #109 at the corner of 42nd St, Brandywine, and River Road in Tenleytown DC, one block from Wisconsin Avenue and the Redline Metro.  We offer indoor and outdoor seating for our bakery, ice cream and coffee customers, though our indoor seating and play space is often booked for birthday parties and private events on the weekend.

We also offer custom cakes and cupcakes, catering, birthday party packages, summer camps, and special events, like our Kid's Night Out parties.

Our Story

We dreamt of a fun space where friends, families and neighbors could gather to enjoy community, good food, drinks and creative activities  -- so we opened our own, welcome to Confetti Café and Events!


Our love of community and play is at the heart of everything we do. We value a sense of community centered around fun, creativity, and growth. At Confetti, we’ve come up with special touches to celebrate special occasions and the everyday!


Confetti was started by a local mom and Realtor at Compass, Wendy Messenger, with elementary-aged children, who was longing for a gathering space for playdates, parties, and a place to connect further within the local community. When her long-term babysitter and AU Graduate, Elisa Frost, started her own custom baking business, Wendy knew Confetti needed to feature Elisa’s fun and delicious designs, and the combined concept of Confetti as a bakery and event space was born!


As a community hub in the heart of Tenleytown, Confetti was designed to be enjoyed by everyone! We're a place families, neighbors and friends of all ages can gather for coffee, ice cream, and freshly baked treats. A place to order your custom cakes or cupcakes for that special occasion. A place to bring your kids for creative classes, crafting and play sessions. And, we're even a place for you to hold your own birthday parties and specials events. 

In our modern world, it truly takes a village. Let us help you create yours!
