Can you give an address? Is it by the Braddock Rd Metro station?

The address says 2307A Mt. Vernon Avenue. I haven't been there yet, and I don't know Alexandria so I don't know about the metro. But I'm sure someone at the bakery could tell you if you called. Well worth the trip, since as far as I know there isn't an entirely gluten free bakery around here. Not within easy reach of me anyway. :)

Thanks for the recommendation! Whenever I go to Del Ray, I go to the Homemade Pizza Company. It will be nice to stop by the bakery on the way home to pick up some desserts.

I'm moving back to Alexandria at the end of July -- I cannot wait to visit this place. I've only heard good things about it!

Here's the web page with location and hours (closed Mondays & I think they are open later hours during the summer):

They are a ways up from the Braddock Metro. I'm thinking it will be perfect to combine a trip to MOMs and this place!

I visited the Happy Tart the same day of my last post. I guess you could say I was desperate for a cupcake! I combined this trip with a visit to the Homemade Pizza Company, and I was able to park in the lot behind the pizza place. The Happy Tart owner was very nice! I asked if they used any chickpea or garbanzo bean flour (which I can't stand) in the items, and she said that they don't. Yay! I got 2 cupcakes - a salted caramel and a s'mores. Both were delicious. I wanted to go back today, but they close at 4 so I'm out of luck. Definitely a keeper! Mt. Vernon Avenue seems to have a lot of foot traffic, so I have the bakery can stick around.
