Far from the cupcake wars of Georgetown, Lavender Moon Cupcakery is a far more low-key spot, baking delicious cupcakes in an adorable space in Old Town Alexandria, just off King Street. In fact, it does little other than bake cupcakes. While they have bottled cold drinks like water and soda for sale, they don’t offer coffee like Georgetown’s Baked and Wired does. While I appreciate having coffee or hot chocolate with my cupcake, Lavender Moon is in the business of doing one thing and doing it well. The cupcakes are smaller than the massive ones you’ll find at other cupcakeries, but $3 doesn’t seem too unreasonable of a price for premium cupcakes such as these, especially when the La Boulange crap at Starbucks costs about the same. I ordered a chocolate peanut butter cupcake and really enjoyed it. If you’re in Alexandria, check it out!
Lavender Moon Cupcakery is located at 116 S Royal St. in Alexandria, VA.
