Check the hours before you go, but definitely make time to GO! It's an adorable place in a fabulous location (between Patrick and Henry Streets), and the cupcakes are the perfect size. Try it out!

I have tried lots of cupcake places and I think this is the best. Cupcakes are super fresh, good variety of flavors with some traditional and some trendy (like Guiness which was excellent). My absolute favorite was the chocolate with chocolate icing. I dont know how they get such a deep, dark INTENSE chocolate flavor but they did. It was also very moist and light. My least favorite was vanilla/vanilla. The flavor was very good but it was just a tad dry. As others have mentioned, it is pricey $15 for 4 but for a vacation or once in a while treat, very worth it.

On vacation in Alexandria today. Waited outside of Alexandria Cupcake for the store to open at noon, before catching our flight back home. We were very excited to try them. The cupcakes were tasty but nothing to rush back for. The service was the worst part of the experience. The girl behind the counter acted like we were putting her out by asking about the flavors or asking for a bag to carry the cupcakes that we purchased (we were the only ones in the store so we were not holding up other customers). Upon opening, they only had 4 flavors out. The girl at the counter said "That's all we have". Only to find out that many more flavors were brought out to display within 5 minutes. Would it have been so difficult to say "This is all we have now but more are on the way"? We felt like we had to settle for the limited choices that were available. We also went to DC Cupcakes in Georgetown during our trip. Much better service there.

I had the Guiness cupcake and it was good. Very moist and the icing was delicious. It's $4 which is insane because you can make a whole tray of cupcakes for a couple dollars more, but I was on vacation so why not.

We've tried all three cupcake shops in Old Town and like Alexandria Cupcake best because of the service. All three have great cupcakes, so it's the friendly, happy service here that puts it on top.
