I was in town and decided to stop here for some cupcakes for dessert after having a nice meal at a close-by restaurant. I tried 4 different cupcakes. When it comes to cupcakes, I find compare-and-contrast with another cupcake place is a good way to convey what to expect. I've had Georgetown Cupcakes a few times. Lavender Moon's cupcakes are...

After finding this 'cupcakery' here on Trip Advisor, we made an effort to visit whilst on a trip to Arlington for the marathon. We were not disappointed. Good choice, friendly staff and delicious, delicious cupcakes. Enjoy !

This cupcake shop always has a great seasonal selection. They also offer gluten free cupcakes and take special orders for smaller cupcakes. The staff is always friendly and helpful.

As a former New Yorker from the city of famous cupcakes (magnolia, etc), I moved to Old Town several years ago and tried a cupcake. WOW. I was in love. So much so I had them supply cupcakes for my wedding. They were such a hit!! They have a nice variety and are always very fresh and moist. I happen... More

Very tasty, I wasn't disappointed at all, sometimes the icing can be too sweet but it was perfect! Thanks so much each time that I have visited the cupcakes are wonderful!

I found the cupcake shop to be cute and clean. The cupcake that I personally had was a lemon cupcake with blackberry icing. The icing was fresh & fabulous, but the cupcake itself tasted more like a heavy corn muffin, I expected light and spongy. Customer service was personable and charming.

I'm really, really, REALLY into these cupcakes. I'm not really phased by a four-star cupcakery these days, and wasn't even intending on trying Lavender Moon even though I was staying around the corner at the Hotel Monaco. However, the management at Hotel Monaco must have predicted my ambivalence and decided to intervene because upon arriving in my room, we had... More

Lavender Moon has the best cupcakes. Ever. And I do enjoy my cupcakes. There is just the right amount of frosting. And it is always delicious. They density and sweetness of the cupcakes is just right. The variety is also spectacular. I love this place.
