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

We stopped in here and had 2 of Lemon Lavender Chiffon. Ended up taking home 2 of the Chocolate Turtles with Pecans and Caramel and 1 Smores. We liked them all just wish they would have put more pecans on/in the Choc/Trtl/Pcn/Crml.

I have tried my fair share of 'mom and pop' cupcake shops, as well cupcakes from famous bakeries such as Georgetown Cupcake, Sprinkles, and Magnolia. None compare to the cupcakes served at Lavender Moon. Their flavors are innovated, icing is always perfect in regards to sweetness and texture, and the cupcakes are moist and heavenly. Lavender Moon cupcakes are a... More

I love Lavender Moon! Their cupcakes really do taste the best--moist, fun combinations (s'mores is my favorite!), and the atmosphere is cute, too. Staff are friendly, which you won't find at many places around here. Try it out!

This small little 'cup-cakery' is our go to when we want a sweet treat. They seem to be rotating their offerings a bit more which is great (while still keeping the flourless Belgian chocolate and sea salt cupcake.. their best!)

Quaint, beautiful establishment in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. This little shop supplies NOVA area with awesome, unique creations. It is definitely worth trying if you are ever in the area.

These cupcakes are about half cake and half frosting. The shop is delightful and the flavors are fun, but you must love icing to appreciate these. The actual cupcake is barely noticeable.
