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.

Very small and not enough room to sit. There is only one table to sit. There were only original flavors to choose from. Nothing spectacular and will try other bakeries around.

The frosting is light and airy with a lot of flavor. We had chocolate, vanilla bean, strawberry and coconut. The chocolate was my favorite.
