“Lovely location, great cupcakes!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Alexandria Cupcake is a great little small business in the wonderful atmosphere of Old Town Alexandria. I have tried cupcakes from most of the DC area's most popular cupcakes (including the famous Georgetown Cupcakes) and find most of their cupcakes to be better. Their chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting is absolutely delicious. Their red velvet has a tangy cream cheese frosting, just as it should be. They also offer vegan and gluten-free options, cookies, and biscotti.

“Don't miss the PB&J cupcake!!!”
Reviewed 5 January 2014 via mobile

First let me say that Yelp's hours are wrong - they are open until 10pm on Friday and Saturday :o) My hubby absolutely LOVES the Guiness cupcake. My new favorite is the PB&J - however!!!! it is only sold on Saturdays! They make them fresh - when they are gone, they are gone. Oh - and I love the fact that instead of ditching the unsold cupcakes at the end of the night, they donate them :o) that's a plus in my book! One thing I am hoping they bake one day - a maple/bacon cupcake, please ;o)

“This spot can hang with them all! ”
Reviewed 28 November 2013 via mobile

I have heard of other cupcake spots in the DC/Maryland area but this one can hang with anyone of them! I was in Alexandria, VA for 4 days 3 nights and I got cupcakes everyday except the last day because they weren't open yet. If you have a sweet tooth I would definitely recommend this spot!

“Yummy Cupcakes”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

The aroma from the sidewalk lured us into the shop! The lemon cupcake was awesome and so was the coconut and pumpkin.

“The Perfect Day is one with a Cupcake!”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

You won't be disappointed with Alexandria Cupcake! Seriously amazing little works of art. The store is super small but the staff is very efficient. They will package your cupcakes to take with you in a beautifully presented box where the cupcakes are secure and won't tip over. The selection is good with a nice variety to choose from. Trust me - their cupcakes are better than across town at the competition where you have to wait forever!
