“YUM”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Mexico City-style street food in Alexandria. You can grab and go or eat in (which I did). I had two sopas -- hand-made thick masa tortilla topped with shredded cabbage, avocado and some gently sauteed shrimp. Delicious light dinner.

“Local flavor and sunny spot”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Sat next to a bunch of locals during brunch. Definitely felt like a cozy neighborhood spot. The high windows give the place an airy feel that's very welcoming. Heck, I came back for coffee to write this review from Bittersweet.

“Bittersweet - Love the Name and the treats”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Bittersweet is a great place to pop in for a sweet or savory! Sandwiches and soups are made fresh; and ieven though there are lot's of people, it feels homey and creative.

“More Than Special”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

The tostada breakfast special was delicious! I came for a second time in two days and brought my roommate. They are extremely generous with desserts and customer service. The desserts are delicious, and the sandwiches are to die for. I was extremely satisfied walking out of the store.
