Wonderful!

I've tried cupcakes across the region, and Lavender Moon's are among the best. The cake is well-baked and moist, and the frosting is superb. The size is also regular size, so no over the top huge icing on a little cake. The chocolate and lemon curd are among my favorites!

We live in town and go to Lavender Moon every week! I've tried every single cupcakery in the area and nothing comes even close to the quality of LM. I can guarantee that no matter what flavor you try, it will taste exactly the same every time and bring you back to that first yummy bite. The S'mores are my... More

We tried 4 different cupcake places just on this trip and these were the best. My 11 year old said the lemon cupcake was the best ever. We were able to sit inside at a table to eat our cupcakes.

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!

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
