Admittedly - we’re suckers for cupcakes and we enjoy sitting in the window and watching people stroll by. Sadly, the staff was a bit melancholy-it wasn’t when we visited last year. Good cupcakes though and worth stopping by. Would have given 4 stars if staff...More

Stopped in to ask for directions and ended up buying cupcakes and edible cookie dough, lol. It was delish. The young ladies were helpful and spot-on were their restaurant recommendations, also. Thanks!

Not a huge selection, but peanut butter chocolateones are to die for. Don’t miss this if in Old Town. It’s next to Hank’s Oyster bar

Checked this place out as advised by a baker friend. Unfortunately by the time we got there, there were no specialty flavors left which was disappointing but understandable. Dark chocolate with vanilla frosting was delish

These cupcakes are amazing! They are fresh and light and full of flavor. Small little seating area with only one table. It’s a order and go type of place with great cupcakes.

Cupcakes are very fresh and tasty. We had a vanilla chocola and a peanut butter and the frosting was the best part. The only bad part is that their selection is limited.

We visit Alexandria about once per year and I always stop in to Alexandria Cupcake for a vanilla bean cupcake. Yes, they have many exotic flavors, but you just can't go wrong with a vanilla bean cupcake with a fresh blueberry on top from here....More

This used to be my absolute favorite cupcakery, having experienced them monthly for many years until this past week when I detected a change in their frosting composition. The frosting is tastes more "oily" than creamy (for lack of a more culinary way to define...More
