I stopped in here for lunch while in Old Town one afternoon. My sandwich was boring and the salad I picked up from the food bar was overdressed and soggy. There are plenty of good places for lunch in Old Town, so I won't be coming back here.

This is a small breakfast/lunch café on a corner or King's street. People tell me they have been in business for years! They have the right combination of great food and reasonable prices, so I expect they will be there when I go back to Alexandria.

I love the Bittersweet Café's menu, ambiance, and coffee. But the thing that draws me back time and time again are their cupcakes. I'm a skilled baker, and I maintain that Bittersweet makes THE best chocolate cupcakes in the entire United States. :)

This a good place for a light lunch . Good choices for a fresh salad and sandwiches . Great for vegetarian eaters. If you want to drink a good coffee and fresh juice this is the place in King st.

Our family consists of 3 kids and my husband and I. Read the reviews and wanted to try the food bar but they were taking it down when we got there. So husband and son split a tuna sandwich, said it was ok. Kids had the happy meal--which was 1/2 of a grilled cheese and mini cupcake for $5. No chips or anything so kids were still hungry. Mini cupcake according to my daughter was not good, but she is picky!! They were really small. I had the chicken salad sandwich. It was ok. The place was busy with lots of locals. We need to go back for breakfast.
