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.

I thought I could get my fill with one cupcake...but couldn't resist another. Perfect cake with a not too sweet icing. Delicious!

great little cupcake shop. However, the store needs to move it's cupcake display to the front of the store so everyone walking buy can see!

Make sure to get there early, as with most cupcake shops they have less later in... More

My wife surprised me with a birthday party and she got my birthday cupcakes from Lavender Moon. They were a big hit. The cake was moist and flavorful and the different frostings/topping were great without being too sweet. All the guests at the party loved them.

This tiny and convenient establishment serves wonderful cupcakes. They are very fresh, delicious and there is an interesting selection, ranging from chocolate to fruit mixes. Each cupcake costs $3.00, tax included. Wish they also served coffee...

While visiting in Old Town in Alexandria, VA, we saw the Lavender Moon Cupcakery on Royal Street and decided to stop for a quick snack. I'm not a great fan of cupcakes because I generally find the cake to frosting ratio to be out of balance. However, this shop has it right! There are many options and different flavors to... More
