Alexandria Pastry Shop-Belgian Waffles For Breakfast Anyone?

By
Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Group

Alexandria Pastry Shop and DeliIn a way you hate to give up the "secret" of your favorite little places to sneak off for lunch or a sweet treat. On the other hand you want others to realize that you don't have to spend a fortunate at one of the mega chain coffee stores or settle for fast food when in the same area is a great little deli and pastry shop that will satisfy your hunger with real food.

In this case the little secret spot is the Alexandria Pasty Shop in the Bradley Shopping Center on King Street. The pastry shop isn't new. In fact it has been around for over 20 years but the location is unassuming as compared to either Shirlington or Old Town Alexandria both just a few miles away. The big decision when you walk in the door is whether you should be good and go the right and order real food or just give in to the urge to go left to the pastry side of the store and buy yourself a treat.

The Alexandria Pastry Shop offers a great selection of daily specials that include London Broil Salad, Eggplant Parmesan Roll-ups, Veggie Lasagna or Quiche to name a few. There is also a set selection of breakfast and lunch sandwiches made to order and my favorite is the grilled chicken with avocado on a fresh croissant.

Alexandria Pastry Shop and DeliThe pastry side of the store is where it all really started and it is evident when you look at the selection available. Cookies, cupcakes, huge brownies, fresh fruit tarts and cake slices of all varieties are displayed beautifully and calling your name. Add to what you can buy to eat on site are the beautiful specialty cakes that you can order.  

On weekend mornings the shop is packed with hungry dinners lined up for a fresh made Belgian Waffles with whipped cream and strawberries. The smell is amazing and yes I have shared one with a friend.

If you live in the Fairlington neighborhood or anywhere close by wander down to the Bradley Shopping Center and check out the Alexandria Pastry Shop and Deli. If you see me there pull up a chair and lets chat about our other favorite places in the neighborhood.

What a great find! Surprising that it has been around for so long and the "secret" hasn't been let out sooner than that! Thanks for sharing, if I could, I would certainly visit right now!

Just hearing about a London Broil Salad is making my mouth water.  You didn't even have to mention the cookies, brownies and cupcakes.

Deborah-there is a Starbucks a few doors away.  For the cost of one cup of coffee there you can get coffee and fresh pastry here.

Bud and Beth-I'm sure those in the know have been stopping by for years.  Others still need to discover it over the local deli chains.
