The Buzz About Buzz Bakery

The Cookie Monster Cupcake ๐Ÿ™‚

As of yesterday, I officially finished my first semester of grad school at Georgetown! I could not be more excited to have a three week winter break ahead of me and decided the best way to celebrate was with a cupcake. ๐Ÿ™‚ My friend Emily has been raving about a bakery in Arlington (located in Ballston) called Buzz Bakery & Lounge for months so I decided to try it out.

The first thing I noticed when I walked in was how cute this store was. They have a huge U-shaped counter in the middle of the store and tons of cute modern furniture and some very snazzy light fixtures I might add! There was a ton of seating room too, which really sets this place apart from most bakeries I’ve visited.

Ordering here is no easy feat since everything looks amazing (see the picture of the display case below if you need proof!). So after much deliberation I decided to order the cookie monster cupcake. It’s one of their signature cupcakes and I can see why. The actual cake tasted more like a chocolate chip muffin rather than cupcake but it was a difference I decided I actually liked. The icing is whipped to perfection and has little itsy bitsy pieces of cookie crumbs in it. Also it has cookie dough in the middle and a small cookie garnish it on top.

Yeahhh I don't think any dessert choice could be a bad one here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

While I wish I could have tried more, don’t fret….I will certainly go back and try something different. I know I’m a sucker for cupcakes but if that’s not your thing they have plenty of other options as well such as pies, tarts, cookies, brownies, plated desserts and cakes. They are also extremely well-known for their breakfast selection. In fact, the Washington Post said they have the best breakfast sandwiches in town. Stop on in and see if you agree with the Post!

In addition to the Ballston location, they also have a store in Alexandria if that’s closer to you. ๐Ÿ™‚

Could this storefront be any cuter?? Yeah, I don't think so.

Sooo cute!
