We stopped in to pick up some dessert for our drive back home. They offer several types of cupcakes; all looked yummy! We decided on the S'mores, the Boston Cream, a snickers and chocolate peanut butter. I wanted to try the lemon chiffon...next time!

We stopped at Lavender Cupcakery and did have high expectations. The cake was dry and the filling and frosting were nothing special. We tried several different kinds but I did not find any of them better than average at best.

My only gripe? I wish the cupcakes were bigger. But for $3 they're a perfect-sized snack. The gluten-free option doesn't taste gluten free. Awesome.

Love their cupcakes! Delicious, fresh, beautiful, and a cute place! (but could use more seating) Service is prompt and courteous, and who doesn't love a cupcake as a mid-afternoon snack?!

The cupcakes here are phenomenal. They include creative flavor combinations, and are made with top-quality ingredients. They're fairly expensive, but they are large and delicious, so well worth a splurge. Service has always been excellent.

The cupcakes here are amazing. My favorite cupcake is the S'mores cupcake and the Triple Belgian Chocolate cupcake. The cupcakes are well made and unique. Out of all the cupcakes I have eaten, the Lavender Moon cupcakes are #1!
