Lavender Moon Cupcakery

The new cupcakery in Old Town is open! It's next door to Grape & Bean on Royal.
Apparently run by Chadwicks, the cute little store just opened last week. $3 per cupcake, $30 a dozen. We checked it out by getting a dozen, 9 flavors total such as Mexican Creme, Passionfruit, PB and the farmers market selection was Summer Peach and Mint. (they get fresh ingredients Saturday morning from Old Town farmers market and create a new flavor!) They were fun, typical muffin tin size, rich, buttery, simple. I think they tasted better chilled, seemed to distinguish the flavors..anyone else try them yet?

Thanks for the review! I'd also love to know what their hours are. I read on a forum that they're closed Mondays and Tuesdays, but there were no hours listed. It's a bit out of the way for me, so would like to plan my visit. :)
I stopped in on Sunday and got a coconut (they say the coconut is organic) and a pistachio, which had some type of vanilla pudding like filling. They were delicious. I have to say I enjoy them more than the cupcakes I've had at Buzz in Alexandria, whose cupcakes I find to be a bit dry. The ones at Lavender Moon were moist, and the perfect size.
