We stopped by the cupcakery because we heard they had gluten free cupcakes. We bought 3 and everyone loved their cupcakes! They were delicious. They had both gluten free and vegan cupcakes. The prices weren’t bad either.

Love cupcakes and these were tasty! Sampled a Red Velvet and Summer Lemon/Coconut combo. Wish we had purchased a few more. Small store with no seating but I would make the walk back there next time we're in the area!

Stopped by over the weekend and had the cookies n' cream cupcake. It was DELICIOUS!!! The cake was moist and the icing was not overwhelmingly sweet. Will definitely return on my next trip to D.C.
