    Fantastic cupcakes. Prefer their chocolate and flavored cakes (e.g. Flourless Chocolate, Blood Orange Dreamsicle, Lavendar Lemon Chiffon, etc.) to any vanilla ones. Vanilla Vanilla fell flat to me.

    Triple Belgian chocolate = OMG. Devil's food PB is delicious too. I've noticed that this place has great frostings but not very fresh cake. Go to Sprinkles Cupcakes for the freshest cake ever.

    You can't go wrong ordering any cupcake. It will likely be the best you've ever had. I can't wait to come back again next week. Closed Mon and Tues, open Wed-Sun.

    My new fave cupcake spot. The CAKE is rich and bursting with flavor AND THEN topped with great frosting.....unlike most which are average tasting (at best) with good frosting.

    These cupcakes are Ahh-maa-zing!!! The cake itself is moist and bursting with flavor. The frosting (which is great too) kinda becomes an afterthought almost. Got a half dozen sampler box.

    Lavender Moon has achieved the impossible by creating the perfect gluten-free cupcake. Ask for the flourless chocolate almond cupcake with sea salt!

    Flavors change frequently but the cupcakes are always delicious. Quaint place to enjoy a sweet treat

    The lemon chiffon and turtle cupcakes are probably my two favorites. The caramel cream cheese frosting on the turtle cupcake is incredible.

    They’ve got a whole sweet-and-savory thing going on, with flavors like vanilla bean lemon curd, peach and basil, and buttermilk Mexican chocolate. But move fast – they close when they sell out.

    By far the BEST place for cupcakes in the DC area. Fresh and unique combo flavors that leave you in cupcake heaven.

    Nice quality cake to the cupcakes here—a detail many places forget in focusing just on the toppings—it's moist, not dry, and full of flavour.

    I've been to many cupcakeries, and I'm pretty sure this is the best cupcake frosting I've ever had. Yum.

    Better than any cupcake place I've been to in the DC metro area. Favorite flavors = Cherry Chocolate Pinot Noir or Blood Orange Dreamsicle.

    Their cream cheese frosting is quite rich, but it balanced well in their lemon blackberry cupcake.

    You MUST try the Flourless Chocolate with Sea Salt & Almonds cupcake — it'll be the best cupcake you'll ever have.
