Reviewed June 15, 2012

Not the best I've had. I'm picky! Baked and Wired all the way! These were ok tasting.

“Great cupcake, but way too expensive”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

I finally stopped in on the way home after hearing about these great cupcakes. No question about it, the one I had was excellent -- some kind of peanut butter/chocolate combination. There was a nice selection of a number of kinds, all looking very attractive. However, $3 for an average size cupcake is simply way too much to pay, even in Old Town. Considering the huge delicious muffins (more than double this size) and the scrumptious donuts available just a little ways away for just a fraction of the price, this is a one-off experience. Yes, I tried it. Yes, it was good. No, I won't be back at these prices.

“couldn't resist”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

My husband loves sweets and stopped in this shop after lunch. I usually can pass on his treats but loved the lemon cupcake. Dense and flavorful. If I'm ever back in Alexandria I'll go out of my way for one.
