“couldn't resist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

My husband loves sweets and stopped in this shop after lunch. I usually can pass on his treats but loved the lemon cupcake. Dense and flavorful. If I'm ever back in Alexandria I'll go out of my way for one.

“Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

We stopped by on a rainy Sunday afternoon for some treats. I got the passion fruit and pistachio and the others got the s'mores cupcake and a flourless chocolate cupcake. Cupcakes are $3. Everybody loved their cupcake. They sell juices, water and other cold drinks and coffee is available next door.

“Killer Cupcakes. But they sell out fast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

He makes killer cupcakes and the flavors are totally different than what the other places offer. His are less "main stream" mixtures of flavors and he doesn't over sell chocolate. The one I like the Cardomon one with vanilla icing and a red raspberry on top. I like his peanut butter one too. I'm not a huge chocolate fan, so I tend to buy the ones that are vanilla/white cake with white icing on them. He has some really good light flavors in the summer time. He closes when he sells out, so try to get there before too late.

“Excellent if you like Cream Cheese frosting....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

My husband can't go by the shop without at least coming out with one cupcake! They offer gluten free chocolate cupcake every day, which tastes likes a browine, according to my husband. The frosting for all the cupcakes is cream cheese based so if you are looking for that, this is your place!! Fun little cafe if you want to sit and enjoy.
