    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.

    I did not like the gluten free cupcake. It was very dry.

    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.

    The strawberry champagne cupcake is delicious, as is the lemon lavendar!

    most definitely the best cupcakes in DC! the lemon lavender chiffon is spectacular!

    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.

    Chocolate lavender cupcakes are to die for!

    3 words: blood orange dreamsicle. It's a dream!

    Its ok.....there are so many other places that are much better, particularly down South!

    Cups cakes are dry I guess I'll stick to Georgetown cakes.

    Ugh, hit or miss.

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

    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!

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

    pumpkin & chocolate cupcake....YUM!

    Red velvet is yummy!

    Frosting is divine but cake leaves much to be desired.

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

    The cherry chocolate Pinot noir cupcake will make you believe in God

    go for the blood orange dreamsicle and s'mores cupcakes. it's amazing how nuanced the textures and flavors are for each different cupcake! delicious!

    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.

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

    Life will be complete when you eat a triple Belgian chocolate cupcake.
