3rd times the charm...but actually so were the 1st and 2nd. If you go this week try their succotash and zucchini gazpacho. Pure heaven.

We love this place in OldTown Alexandria because it is small and it is very personal. Glass of wine with a cheese plate is all you need!

great place for a casual coffee or glass of wine. Lots of wine selections, both US and foreign. A couple of outdoor tables.

This place makes THE BEST iced coffee in town. It is properly brewed ice coffee - as opposed to regular coffee poured over ice. I don't know why I haven't written a review for Grape + Bean before today. This is one of my go to places for lunch with girl friends and I have never been disappointed. I usually... More

stunned to find SF's Blu Bottle coffee here. They also sell the beans to make at home. Interesting wine selection as well.

On a warm and beautiful spring day, Mrs. Nutmegger and I decided to try this place since we had a gift certificate. This is truly a great mix of a wine bar and coffee bar, squeezed into a cute and cozy space. Bottles of wine line one wall and fridges the other. In between are a mix of high-top tables,... More

I found myself in Alexandria during a business trip and this place had been recommended by some locals. I was alone and looking for a small "locals" place near Old Town, not too big, not too touristy, where I could have a glass of wine and a meal without feeling out of place as a single. A great concept that... More

My wife and I were staying in Alexandria while on a vacation trip to DC and were out shopping on King Street late in the afternoon when the Grape & Bean was recommended to us as a place to stop in for a glass of wine and a good cheese plate. What a great recommendation this turned out to be.... More

This little wine bar has a wonderful selection of wines by the glass (including flights -- my favorite is the bubbly one!) and delicious artisanal coffee. I love the cheese plate and small bites as well. The atmosphere is cozy and intimate, perfect for a conversation. If you like chocolate, try the chocolate tasting menu! Perfect place for a glass...

We first went here about 3 years ago, and moving back to the Northern Virginia / DC area, this was someplace we looked forward to seeing again. Charcutterie and sandwiches are a must.
