I generally can resist sweets. However, if you put a Blood Orange Cupcake from Lavender Moon in front of me, it will be consumed in record time. When my son visits, I am doomed, because any visit to Old Town ends at Lavender Moon.

My girlfriend who lives just outside of Old Town took me to Lavender Moon after we had lunch. She took cupcakes home to her husband and after trying them, I also took a dozen home. This place is incredible and well worth a stop!

Super close to our hotel/conference location so ended up stopping here. So good! The staff was super friendly and helpful in choosing which flavors to get as well.

The cupcakes here are special! A full menu of options with intriguing combinations of flavors that are sure to satisfy the most discriminating tastes. The enthusiastic staff describes each type with both knowledge and excitement so it is difficult to buy only one. Each day adds special selections to a basic set of choices.( Be sure to include at least... More

We went all through DC trying cupcakes at Sprinkles, Baked and Wired, and Georgetown Cupcakes. This place is one of our top two for the Red Velvet Cupcake. (Sprinkles was the best, in our opinion.) Good cupcakes!

After reading the reviews, I had to check this cupcakery out. The entry was dark, and the room you must walk through to find the counter (and any other human beings) looks like it is our of alice-in-wonderland, but dingy and dusty. With this being the entrance, and the counter back in a dark corner in the next room, it... More

I actually was in the process of patronizing another cupcakery in the area but after reading the other TripAdvisor reviews I decided to give this place a try and I'm glad I did. It's the cutest most quaint store situated in Old Town Alexandria with the most delightful young lady who waits and goes through the entire list of options... More

Place doesn't open til 11am. I guess they make so many for the day and that is it. Stopped and got a cupcake and said we would be back later to get some to take home as we were leaving the next morning ( before 11am ). They closed at 8pm, we got there at 7:10pm and they were already... More

Wanted something sweet so we stopped in here. They had several different flavors and were pleased to tell you about them. They were normal sized cupcakes and not the great big ones that most cupcake shops seem to sell. They all sounded so good so we tried 4 different flavors and not one of us was disappointed. Would definitely go... More

This was a little hole in the wall but worth finding for a little sweet treat for the family. When we walked in, I expected a case of small amounts of interesting flavors but only recall six and not the Guiness I wanted to tru. The frostings were love, love, loved. However, the cupcake section for three out of four... More
