after a laid back morning, cuz & i headed out to old town for some grub and errands. so we decended upon bittersweet café with a hungry appetite and they delivered!
we made an easy and quick decision to share a soup and sandwich. the day’s soup choices included a carrot and ginger soup that was our tasty pick -and- the big george with grilled chicken, bacon, avocado, pepper jack, honey mustard, lettuce and tomato on a kaiser roll sounded, looked and tasted awesome. YUM! but the best part of our lunch bcuz it gave my cuz and me the biggest laugh was our choice of beverage. bittersweet’s homemade iced tea was a mere $1.75 for a 32-oz container that was almost as big as our heads! in comparison to the large-sized soup, it could have stomped over the soup and then taken over the café!
the first thing we saw when we walked into the café was the cupcakes but after the very appetizing and filling meal, we never made it to dessert. luckily, i have many reasons to go back to the dc area so i’ll be back to bittersweet for another good meal and maybe next time, we’ll save room for dessert!
eat at Bittersweet in old town alexandria, va (they also cater!)
