The West End is fortunate to have Alexandria Pastry Shop is close proximity, It has become an institution for nearby neighbors but also for other Alexandrians who come to shop in this shopping center. A full selection of pastries, bagels and breads along with special breakfast sandwiches draw customers in to get the day started on the right foot (check... More

Staff at the counter are very knowledgeable about all the products. You ask a question, they take you to the product and tell you how it tastes (flavors and contents) and the details. The pastry selections change daily so you know they are fresh- love it! They bake on site!! This is one of the few bakeries in the Alexandria... More

We went here for a quick sandwich/light lunch. The food was average to good. I had a meatball sub which I found to be quite good! The place seemed clean and moderately priced. The staff seemed a little unfriendly, but it was busy when we were there. Also had a delicious apricot bar thing which was delicious!

The pastries are wonderful; the cakes are tasty and beautiful; lunches are great, too. I recommend the raspberry muffins or the ham and cheese croissants or scones--all yummy!

Cozy cafe in a strip mall off of King Street. Delicious pastries and a selection of sandwiches, salads for breakfast or lunch. Also serves coffee. An alternative to Starbucks down the street, with better and more food choices.

---On a weekday; two adults; about 1/2 the tables in the restaurant were filled. We had not been here in six months due to our dissatisfaction with the service and one soda fountain drink being broken during the last visit. ---First we ordered three different pastries (two of them "to go") and one bagel. The staff person seemed not to... More

While I respect the right to an opinion and I know that Trip Advisor is a people's forum I take exceptions to people who are totally ignorant about food and cause harm to a very good business. Yes the taste of food is personal and everybody is a so called expert, but some people have good taste and some do... More

The desserts, cakes, were just wonderful. We had our Wedding cake made here years ago and it is still a fantastic place to tempt your taste buds.

Years ago, I lived in Alexandria and found Alexandria Pastry Shop. This is a family-owned business serving the community with the best pastries, muffins, cakes and more! I was out of the area for 20 years and came back to find it is still going strong. Such great news. When I want a special dessert or coffee and a treat... More
