We stopped in late one night (they were open till 10PM) after dinner at Red Rocks for pizza. The selections vary, but this night Guinness and Coconut were both on the menu...and sold out. Sorry I didn't get to try them. Settled for a dark chocolate on chocolate. They were good but not blow you away good. All four of... More

Our family stopped in just before closing and noticed right away the girl behind the counter seemed irritated that we came in 15 min before closing! I normally don't like to do that but knew we would only be a few minutes..I ordered the lemon and daughter got raspberry which she threw away after one bite. The lemon was just... More

I searched high and low for this place! I was not disappointed! I played it safe and got a chocolate cupcake with vanilla buttercream frosting. The cake was moist and chocolaty and the frosting wasn't overly sweet! My kind of cupcake!

I did try the red velvet cupcake and it was worth to try. I do think that they serve quite a nice variety of cupcakes and did love their packaging. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

Food fads come and go, but this is one fad that has staying power. Alexandria Cupcake has a good selection of cupcakes that vary from day to day. The cake portion of each cupcake is moist and crumbly ... the icing is deadly. Rich flavors and taste that beg for more than just one! For those looking for a special... More

The cupcakes are always just to die for, but with only a couple of tall tables and minimal seating, it is hard to recommend as a drop-in-just-for-dessert place. We last did that one night in the rain and it was difficult to juggle umbrellas, purses, drinks and cupcakes - but we persevered and ate every delicious morsel!

The cupcakes were light and delicious without the over-sweet icing that you all too often find in these types of shops. Their is only one table so it's more of a to- go place. Service was fast and friendly. They have cookies, cupcakes, mini-cupcakes and coffee.

Not usually a fan of carrot cake, but theirs was great! Not too heavy nor too sweet and just the right amount of cream cheese frosting. Yum!

I was so excited to try this place and this was a little disappointing. I had the red velvet cupcake and the dark chocolate cupcake and they were both very dry. I was expecting a little more because $3/cupcake is a little stiff. The place didnt even look cute and inviting like most cupcake stores do.

My wife liked the Lemon cupcake so well that we stopped for a dozen on the way back to hotel. Our teenagers loved them.
