Delightfully delish cupcake. Always came in and met a very friendly server. There are some non-traditional toppings like bacon and other flavors.

I work at City Hall in Alexandria and it is hard to resist going by there every night BUT I do make my once a week trip for 4 cupcakes. Lemon Curd is my favorite but the Pumpkin cupcakes are a very close running second.

I'm pretty much a cupcake aficionado at this point in my life (I would put myself in a pro-am category). I basically run and workout so that I can eat cupcakes. I have even been a cupcake contest judge (a bucket list item I didn't...More

Ordered the flourless chocolate with almonds+sea salt and a vanilla filled with lemon curd. They were AMAZING! The chocolate cake was almost like a brownie, but still light, moist, and flavorful. The frosting was thick and truffle like- so decadent! The vanilla cake was fluffy...More
