If I think about cupcakes this is simply the place to go! Always friendly and always fresh, perfect for parties or a small treat.

So many choices to pick from, there are daily flavors, monthly and seasonal as well. I was surprised they keep them in the back room. You give your order and someone goes back and boxes them up. The portions are huge with amazing texture and...flavor. TU don’t think you could pick a bad one. I only wish they had labeled the box top with which were which. I got a few varieties that were similar and wasn’t sure which I was getting until the first bite. Do not pass up an opportunity to try these amazing creations.More

We were in Williamsburg for the week and were celebrating my husband's birthday. I read the reviews and knew this was the place to order from. We ordered 7 cupcakes, 6 different flavors. All I can say is WOW! They were incredible. Everyone enjoyed their...selection.More

I avoid this place because the cupcakes are the best and I would just become too addicted. It was my birthday and of course, a birthday cake would be just too much so we came here instead. Had to get two apiece each - my...husband & myself. Had to have a red velvet cupcake w/ the cream cheese frosting - delicious but I also got a Wicked Chocolate cupcake - OMG, if you like chocolate, deep & rich, the frosting is truly wicked! My husband also got a Wicked Chocolate cupcake but he also tried the Sinfully Salted Carmel and just loved it. The last time I was here was right before the pandemic and had ordered cupcakes for a Valentine's Day BYOB - this is the place to order something special - all the cupcakes were enjoyed by all attending.More

We've had just about every flavor and they're all unbelievable! The best is the Chocolate Peanut Butter by far, but really you can't go wrong.

This is only my second visit to Extraordinary Cupcakes since moving to Williamsburg and for good reason. I would be easily ten pounds heavier if I frequented the shop more often. Today I was ordering cupcakes for an upcoming party so I HAD to come...into the shop. Of course I had to buy a cupcake for myself and my husband for today. I chose the German chocolate cupcake and the raspberry chocolate. Wow, we split each one so we could have a taste of each. German chocolate was full of walnuts and coconut, the chocolate flavor was typical of a good German chocolate cake. The raspberry chocolate was amazing, deep chocolate cake, filled with raspberry jam, the raspberry buttercream frosting was so smooth and creamy. Both cupcakes were nice and moist - we definitely can tell freshly baked that morning. So glad that I'm ordering several for our party. It's a real treat to have a freshly baked cupcake.More

Great find in Williamsburg. My wife ordered the S'mores cupcake, and I had the Brown Betty. Both were phenomenal, and the employee was great. She recommended that my wife heat up her cupcake for approximately 20 seconds to enhance the flavor even more.

I would give this less than 1 star if I could. Positively the driest, oddest consistency cupcake I have had anywhere. I don't even have an idea what kind of flour they had in them but they were beyond horrible. Selection was very limited. The...one I had was so bad I didn't even finish it. The truffles were just as bad. The same consistency as the cupcakes with a chocolate coating. Not worth the calories or the money.More

Anytime I am in the mood for a great tasting gluten-free cupcake I come here. I usually get the gluten-free vanilla with cream cheese frosting. Amazing!

Don't get to frequent very often, however, I have been a customer for years. Great employees and location. Delicious cupcakes! Problem ......the size of the cupcake has been drastically reduced. I was appalled when I saw the size. I guess they have customer base/loyalty so...they can cut back. That seems to be the way of the world...5 lb bag of sugar now 4 lb. Oh well. Big disappointment!More

Visited Williamsburg for the weekend and stopped in for a treat with my girls. Little pricey but for a once in awhile treat they were great. The Chocolate was very good quality and the Vanilla you could see it in the cake.

My mouth waters at the thought of these cupcakes. We went with Extraordinary Cupcakes for our wedding and it was a great choice. They are so moist and rich. Also they are very affordable compared to other bakeries in the area. Many different flavors to...choose from. Service is excellent. I live and DC and this place is better than Georgetown Cupcake. Just do it.More
