“THE best cupcakes in the DC area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

I love Lavender Moon! Their cupcakes really do taste the best--moist, fun combinations (s'mores is my favorite!), and the atmosphere is cute, too. Staff are friendly, which you won't find at many places around here. Try it out!

“a definite treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This small little 'cup-cakery' is our go to when we want a sweet treat. They seem to be rotating their offerings a bit more which is great (while still keeping the flourless Belgian chocolate and sea salt cupcake.. their best!)

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Quaint, beautiful establishment in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. This little shop supplies NOVA area with awesome, unique creations.
It is definitely worth trying if you are ever in the area.

“You'll love if you like frosting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

These cupcakes are about half cake and half frosting. The shop is delightful and the flavors are fun, but you must love icing to appreciate these. The actual cupcake is barely noticeable.

“Yummy!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

My kids and I are cupcake fanatics and after reading the reviews couldn't wait to try these cupcakes. We had already been to Alexandria Cupcakes and were very impressed. So we finally made it to Lavender Moon. We bought dark chocolate with peanut butter frosting, red velvet, orange dreamsicle (?), chocolate hazelnut, and a vanilla lemon. The place is very cute and nice that there is somewhere to sit. My daughter is a vanilla cupcake girl and was disappointed they didn't have any plain cupcakes. She tried the chocolate PNB one and didn't like it, but then there was more for me to eat!! The dark chocolate was a little dry. The hazelnut cupcake while very good didn't taste like hazelnut--I was expecting a Nutella flavor. My favorite was this lemon. So moist. My son loved his orange dreamsicle so much I never had the chance to try it. Alexandria is a lucky town to have two such wonderful cupcake shops!!
