“Best Iced Coffee”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

The brunch is good, sandwiches are a bit on the skimpy side (where's the lettuce & tomato?), but the iced coffee (with french vanilla creamer) and cupcakes are worth the stroll. Delicious summer treat.

“Wonderful, fresh Deli in Olde Town”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

A favorite spot for fresh deli creations, bakery items and frozen yogurt! I love their Tuna Melt with fresh veggies and my girls love the frozen yogurt, that is the real thing! The small eating area can get crowded so you may have to plan to eat outside or in the plaza a few blocks down.

“Nice restaurant”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

I felt like Bittersweet was along the lines of a Panera style restaurant. The food was good (not outstanding). The service was fine. I wasn't convinced the staff was well trained in what a gluten allergy is. We ate breakfast outdoors along King Street on a Sunday morning here which was very nice. Overall, we did not manage to find an outstanding breakfast dining experience in Alexandria, but if you aren't fussy I would not hesitate to grab a bite at Bittersweet. They get the job done.

Just had a cupcake and drink, but they were tasty. Their menu looked like it had a lot of yummy things to try.

“Old Town Breakfast Surprise!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Freshly brewed coffee and Holiday brunch with a great atmosphere! Friendly staff prepare and serve a variety of meals. Enjoyed a traditional breakfast there. Street cafe' style seating also available for warmer days. Walking distance from the Metro and Water Taxi. Old Town a must see!
