I stopped here after previously passing it on a Sunday afternoon and they were closed. The shop is small but the woman behind the counter was very friendly. I got 6 cupcakes to split with friends and we samples a small bit of each cupcake. I will have to say that the Madagascar mactop and the Cherry Blossom were my favorite. The coffee frosting on the Madagascar as well as the macaron was amazing. The frosting on the Cherry Blossom was alright, the cupcake was really good. We also tried the; Lemon Mactop,-the macaron was good, the cupcake good as well, just not my favorite, the Boston cream was pretty basic, the caramel apple was good and the sweet potato cupcake- I liked the cupcake, but am not a fan of marshmallow on my cupcake, so I just scooped it off. We also sampled some of the macarons- the cappuccino was my favorite (after the coffee plantain one on the cupcake), followed by the Hazelnut praline salted caramel. The spicy mango one I did not like and the green tea one was tasty, but not one of my favorites. I was disappointed they did not have the pistachio one to try. The cupcakes I liked best were just as good as my favorites at Georgetown cupcakes and there is a much better wait here during the week. I have tried some other places and just was not impressed, either too sweet or tasted ordinary, so was glad to see that a winner really did have good cupcakes as I am not a fan of Sprinkles. Another day I will have to stop to try their eclairs and some other flavors since they do change a few days a week. I'd recommend a stop if you are in the area.
