Solid Chocolate Cake
One of the best bakeries in the area
I got 2 cakes for my sons 1st birthday, a smash cake and regular sized cake. Both cakes had fantastic design and flavor. My fiance and I were very pleased with the cakes overall and we found our go to place for cakes as well. The flavor is very good and fantastic butter cream. Thanks Guys! More...
Buzz did a great job with the desserts for our wedding! We ordered a rehearsal dinner cake, a wedding cake, and mini cupcakes through them. We already knew we loved their desserts after they were used for our friends’ wedding a few months before ours. We worked with Katherine and Allie to coordinate a time to come into their Alexandria location to have a tasting before deciding on anything. We were blown away with the experience – partly because it was done at no cost to us.. and when you don’t even have a formal order or agreement in place, that’s very nice of them – but mostly because the amount of options we were given were so vast and everything was so delicious! For the rehearsal dinner cake, I wanted to do something custom that my husband would love. His favorite cake is banana cake with chocolate frosting. Buzz doesn’t normally have this cake flavor, so we were excited to hear they’d do a custom flavor for us! The Buzz team made a special sample for us to try and my husband loved it! I also worked with Allie to come up with a fun custom design for the outside of the cake that was specific to my husband’s interests. The cake was a fun surprise for him the night before the wedding. Everyone loved the cake and mini cupcakes at the wedding – including us! We opted for a small wedding cake for the wedding itself in lieu of saving a tier for the future. We look forward to ordering a vanilla cake with cookies and cream filling with vanilla frosting on our one year anniversary from Buzz and probably for years to come! More...
I had carrot cake cupcake. It was amazing. Possibly the best cupcake ever. The staff was super friendly.
This little cozy place is my favorite hideaway. Great coffee and something for my sweet lips now and then. Great place to pick up a great dessert or a fun Halloween cake! Love the good coffee and the ability to take a small pause during the busy day. There is a wonderful Russian gourmet food store next door. Fun to get two good experiences in the same location.

everything was yummy! clean, nice environment :)
Cupcakes are amazing!
great neighborhood bakery, "you find great things right in your backyard !!" Great coffee and delicious Vanilla cupcake
There is a nice mix of sweets and sandwiches. I had turkey and cheese on ciabatta bread. It was toasted and delicious. Prices seemed reasonable.
Excellent service. Went in on a Sunday afternoon. She was polite. We got a lemon, carrot 9:30(chocolate with chocolate glaze) and vanilla. We ate the vanilla it was soft moist and the frosting was a loght buttercream not overwhelming. My daughter who normally hates all cake actually ate this one which tells me a lot. :) If you like good cupcakes with pleasant service try them out. More...
Me gustó mucho
First time visit. Staff so nice and accommodating. Terry especially. Cakes on the pricey side but looked nice. Opted for cupcakes for my event. About $3 each, however very decadent and worth it. They were a hit. Compared to Georgetown Cupcakes for example which has such a stellar rep and popularity, honestly little better! More...
Amazing cupcakes. I had the carrot cake and cookies and cream. The cream cheese frosting on the carrot cake compliments the cupcake without being overwhelming. The same with cookies and cream; the cookies and cream frosting did not overpower the chocolate. Reasonable prices for gourmet cupcakes. Paid $7 for the two. Would definitely return! More...

The staff is awesome !! They gave my little girl a cupcake with a candle on it for her birthday!!!
The cupcakes are very rich and decadent, and they offer some unique and different flavors and combinations. The staff are always helpful and friendly, bright and airy space, and always clean.
Delicious desserts. Several non dairy milk options for your coffee. Vegan chocolate chip cookies are awesome! Love the indoor and outdoor seating.
My go to place for yummy cupcakes and coffee.
My cortado and espresso cupcake were amazing. Plus it’s a short walk from my house. Excellent service too.
Buzz Bakeshop, particularly manager Catherine should be recognized for her demonstration of such professionalism and customer service that has rarely been seen by myself or my family. Ordered a cake for my daughter's 21st birthday and due to an unforeseen error, Catherine went beyond what could have ever been expected and did not settle until all was right. More...

Fresh, airy, rich cupcakes. It's probably one of the best cupcakes I've had. Cool location too
Perfect spot to grab a few birthday cupcakes. Boyfriend loved the chocolate ones, very decadent
Gluten free options
Great place to work for the day. Tons of people were on their laptops. Because of this I think, the wifi had a hard time supporting a video call but was fast enough for normal web browsing.
Cute atmosphere, cupcakes were dry but the icing was good and really good coffee! Nice service with smiles.
Great Service and Great food/coffee. Love the atmosphere of the shop as it has a laid back and welcoming vibe. It is a wonderful place to spend afternoons.
Environment was very friendly. The cupcakes were really moist and so good. I want to try some of the other desserts.
Great service! Patient with all my questions! Ordered the lemon bar, coconut macaroon, vegetable quiche, and turkey bacon sandwich. Everything was great. Lemon bar being really great and macaroon a little sweet. Turkey bacon was perfect and quiche mushrooms didn't fare as well when heated up, but overall was really great as well. Space has charging ports along wall and spaces for children making it a great family spot! More...
I promised to bring my employee something special for her birthday, and at last minute every single bakery was closed in the Area in Alexandria, including Lavender which is right around the corner. Mannnnnnnnnnn Mrs.Terri came all the way through with her cake selection and being so friendly and helping me out at last minute. I’m so elated and I can’t wait to see my employees expression. More...
Delicious iced americanos! Love this place
Nice bakeshop! We will definitely be back!!
So many treats that it is simply hard to pick just one! Lucky for us we didn't have to! All 6 of our family members had a sweet treat and everyone was moist and delicious! This is a dangerous shop if your trying to stay away from sweets! More...
Last night I picked up a key lime pie for dessert, but was too full from a tasty Southside 815 dinner, so I saved it for breakfast. I can’t think of a more delicious way to start a day than your scrumptious key lime pie (with coffee on my back patio)!!! Tart, creamy, sweet meringue-Holy moly- 10/10 in every way. Thank you for making such yummy everything. More...
First of all, I would like to thank Ali once again for accomodating me and my cake needs last minute. I called the Buzz Bakeshop the day before my daughters birthday because the person who I originally had hired cancelled on me. I called Friday, the day before my daughters birthday with my dilemma and she said she could help me. We quickly came up with a plan and the Buzz Bakeshop made it happen. The cake was absolutely beautiful and tasty! I will definitely come back here again. Especially, for their delicious cupcakes. More...
Particularly great cupcakes for those who like a slightly heavier consistency. I particularly like the cookie cupcake and maple bacon cupcake, when available. Buzz's 9:30 Club cupcake (available at the music venue in DC), is their most well known. More...
I loved it. I ordered their chai tea latte and it was very yummy!
Delicious house made savory food and desserts. I highly recommend this bakery to anyone with a sweet tooth! And even for some good 'ol caffeine! Their Ceremony coffee is awesome!
Morgan Baxter Milton
Love love love. Any time we are in the DC area we hit up Buzz for coffee and cupcakes.

I hosted my best friend's baby shower at Buzz Bakeshop in Arlington-Ballston, and everything was perfect! I rented out the full Back Sun Room, and we had 13 people at the Baby Shower, but the space could easily fit 20-24 comfortably. It was the perfect setting for a small, intimate baby shower. And the price was unbeatable for a Saturday afternoon rental.I was easily able to meet the minimum price for food/drinks. The staff at Buzz were so great and easy to work with--they helped me customize my menu to fit my budget and the pastry chef even made the CUTEST customized shortbread cookies to fit the baby shower theme. The Buzz staff was also so helpful the day of the event with setup, clean up, and refreshing drinks/food throughout the day. And of course the food was AMAZING--the guests still rave about the pizza, cupcakes, and carrot hummus! I will definitely be keeping Buzz in mind for a place to host my next event! More...
Loved the decor but even more loved the cupcakes!! The coconut cupcake was so good, I could eat 10! Definitely check this place out if you happen to be in Ballston!
I'd give them five stars, but their cupcakes are noticeably smaller than before. We tried sandwich cookies, which my son and I enjoyed.
My husband absolutely loved the mini cheesecake. I got one bite, which is truly telling. He's usually much more willing to share. The macaroon was light and airy. Very different from others I've had. Go on your payday and order away!
P.S. Kudos to the friendly employee who greeted us coming and going. More...
Good coffee, delicious pastries and cakes, tasty and varied gluten free options, open late, and friendly staff. They have a play area for little ones to keep them occupied and even board games for older kids (and adults). This is a good spot for conversation or even studying/working on your laptop. I preferred the quirky decor before they remodeled but it’s a nice place to hang out. More...

I love this space. It's great to socialize or work. The staff are great, they have a fantastic not too sweet chai recipe that's distinct and delicious. Great quiche... I wish they had matcha, it would sell in this higher end location. They would also benefit from offering a few more low or no sugar options. More...
Love this bakery! After going for many years they have finally offer chocolate white icing cup cakes!
Beyond good customer service, solid choice for cupcakes and the “Queen” was velvety and delicate. Also kid friendly but clean and trendy. Coffee has a good kick too! Bonus: lots of GF and DF options. Will return soon with the whole family! More...
Pretty good place to drink for coffee , cupcakes are sooo good
I frequent this bakery often for the cupcakes, which I like very much. I was looking for a shop to bake a birthday cake for my daughter and decided to give them a try. Let me tell you I was not disappointed the cake was soooo good, ordered lemon with buttercream icing and filling. Will definitely order more birthday cakes! More...
My husband and I picked out six cupcakes, we were a little taken back when the girl who was helping us told us our total. $22 for 6 cupcakes . When we got home we tried a little bit of each one and HOLY CANNOLI THEY ARE DELICIOUS. Officially my favorite cupcakes (besides my own , lol). My favorite one was definitely the espresso cupcake! So great, absolutely worth the money. More...
Their jasmine green tea tastes like you're drinking flowers.. It's the best.
we ordered a strawberry and lemon cake for 35 people. it was plenty for our party and everyone wanted to know where we got it from. a real hit. would get it again.
This shop is so cute. I happened to stop by midday, and it was quiet and charming. The staff was great as well. But right before I left, a gaggle of kids came in with their parents and ran around the shop yelling. There are a bunch of toys inside, so I assume this is a regular occurance. More...

Carrot cake is my Favorite here. The staff and atmosphere is very nice.
Smells delicious in there. The coffee was fabulous and employees are so nice.
Had chocolate cake vanilla icing best cupcake ever Going to try carrot next!!!
Picked up an after dinner treat here with my husband. I had two of the mini banana pies and hubby had the 930 cupcake. He loved his and I loved mine. We both ended up going back to get a second one of each to go. They do have a play area in the front of the store for small kids to play with toys. There is also a small parking lot (square) for customers (30 minutes parking) for the stores on the block. More...

I've known about this shop for a while, but have since moved to southern Maryland, so it is about a 30 minute drive. It's worth it. The cupcakes and cookies are so delicious, my almost 3 year old - who ALWAYS licks the frosting off cakes, cupcakes, and donuts - ate every last bite of her vanilla ghost cupcake. Plus, they have a small play area for kids so Momma can enjoy a latte, but it is separated from the other area so as not to disturb other guests. Love this place!!! More...

We had a quick breakfast here while visiting from out of town. The breakfast cups and hot breakfast sandwiches were great! The chia tea latte was good as well! I was happy with the amount of options that were available and would go back if in the area again! Prices were reasonable as well! More...

Best cupcakes in town. The chocolate one with vanilla filling has been the best I have ever had!!! Delicious!!!!
Come for the coffee... and and the baked goods rocked too.
I had couple of really tasty mini chocolate brownies with caramel piped in center and a cappuccino. Both were very good. Took a chocolate on chocolate cupcake home to hubby and it was really yummy. My only issue was no wifi connection. I was surprise so I am hoping I missed something. I wasn't there for long so I didn't ask. More...
Cute coffee shop, great customer service, delicious croissants and cupcakes. Fun place to visit with friends. Cakes are beautiful. Will go back when headed to Old Town again! More...
My first stop in today. Cute establishment and yummy maple bacon donut! Can't wait to try out more treats.
I have an obsession with the gluten free scones .. It's my treat once a month if I'm lucky they are there
So you know when someone steps in & does an incredible act of kindness, & they do it with grace & a big smile? That's what happened to me this morning at Buzz during the Great Egg Nog Latte Episode of 2014. And the act of kindness was a charming Buzz barista who didn't hesitate to help. Buzz has always been great coffee & food, but today the staff went above & beyond & were simply lovely neighbors. Thank you!!! More...
Great place pick up some desserts for some coworkers

I had the pleasure of visiting Buzz Bakery for the very first time today. I must say the service was EXCEPTIONAL, as well as the treats! Kudos to the Tingey St location! I'll definitely be back......for my Cookie Monster!! Lol More...
I have not been yet so!!!!!!!
