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.

I've been here several times while visiting the DC area, and the cupcakes are amazing - much better than the ones you have to wait in long lines for! They never disappoint -creative flavors and always delicious! I especially love the GF flourless chocolate! Also, they have amazing customer service - I had a special request, and they went above...

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!

My husband and I make it a point to go here every time we are visiting Alexandria. Not only do they have some of the best cupcakes in the world but it is an adorable place to sit down and enjoy your amazing cupcake. 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.
