“Georgetown Cupcake-Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

The last time I visited D.C., I didn't get the opportunity to make it over to this side of town. This time though, I was not leaving without my DC Cupcakes! I left the hospital & on the way to the airport, we made a pit stop to get CUPCAKES! Surprisingly, there was NO LINE! However, 2 mins after I arrived, the line was out the door. The cupcakes were great, the chaos behind the counter, not so great, staff were friendly, but the set up/distribution of orders filled online needs to be streamlined a bit more. Overall, great experience when dealing with such a popular & small store. Reminds me of Garretts Popcorn in my hometown, Chicago! I would definitely come here again, but only after doing an online order! :-)

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

They're just cupcakes that are average and overpriced. They have a lot of clientele due to the tv show's popularity.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Georgetown Cupcakes are good. They have a lot of varieties and they ship them if need be. Great gift for you college student since you can't bake them a cake....they can share them, too.
