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!

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.

This tiny and convenient establishment serves wonderful cupcakes. They are very fresh, delicious and there is an interesting selection, ranging from chocolate to fruit mixes. Each cupcake costs $3.00, tax included. Wish they also served coffee...

While visiting in Old Town in Alexandria, VA, we saw the Lavender Moon Cupcakery on Royal Street and decided to stop for a quick snack. I'm not a great fan of cupcakes because I generally find the cake to frosting ratio to be out of balance. However, this shop has it right! There are many options and different flavors to... More

Ran in here while staying at the Hotel Monaco for birthday cupcakes. Grabbed an assortment of 6. They were well enjoyed by the birthday girl and friends!

What a delightful place. Was too late for lunch but dinner hours away so decided to grab a cupcake. It's a very Old Townish little shop, sort of whimsically decorated. Sinatra playing in the background. Very friendly, high energy young woman greeted me and explained all the flavors. I chose chocolate peanut butter on her recommendation and it was yummy.... More
