I never could understand all the cupcake craze. My girlfriend brought me to Molly's and I felt heaven in my mouth. Also its a very cozy place to have a cup of tea!

So a friend of mine from CA has gotten me into the whole cupcake craze. It started last year when she suggested some of us try a place while we were in DC that she'd seen on some food network show and it had won awards. It was quite good actually and then earlier this year she brought some for... More

Molly's definitely rates very highly with my family because they said , "These are the best ever. They are way better than "Sprinkles"! That's the highest cupcake compliment. We went two days in a row and atr in then got Cupcakes to go!!!

Got 1 coconut cupcake (meh) and 1 cookie dough (good). We've had Sprinkles Cupcakes in NYC and liked that much better, as this frosting was the soft whip cream texture and not the thicker buttercream that I prefer.

Friendly staff, quick service even whenthe line is out the door. They have a lot of permanent flavor combinations, but sometimes you luck out and get to try a unique cupcake like S'more! I think the 'ron bennington' (peanut butter and chocolate) is my favorite! Plenty of seating if you want ot stay and eat - they also have swinging... More

I stopped here with a couple of friends after reading some reviews online and suffering from an incurable sweet tooth. The cupcakes here are amazing! They're expensive if compared to grocery store cupcakes, but worth the price once you taste them. I had the cookie monster cupcake and it was great. The place is really cute and even has a... More

This a cute cupcake place, and the cupcakes were good, though I wouldn't say great necessarily. I had a caramel cupcake with butterscotch filling and salted caramel frosting, and my husband had the cookies and cream. Both were tasty, but not quite as good as I'd hoped. I'd stop by again if I was in the neighborhood, but to me,... More

Apologies in advance for the overly-gushy review that I'm about to write. I adore cake and cupcakes, and this place has the best EVER. Lots of adjectives and superlatives to come... The place itself is nothing super spectacular - just kind of cutsie and plain, but I like that you can sit on swings. The cupcakes are the main attraction... More

My girlfriends and I visited after the 5K Color Run on June 22, 2014. I tried the red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing and it was very, very good. I also purchased the peach cobbler, blueberry cheesecake, butterscotch caramel and peanut butter nutella to take home. After trying all of them that I brought home I have to say... More
