A Treat in Alexandria - Fontaine Caffe & Crêperie - The Best of the Best

Real Estate Agent with Featuring Susan Craft, CRS, REALTOR® - McEnearney Associates

There are only three words to describe the experience at Fontaine . . . delicious, delicious, delicious.

Fontaine Caffe & Crêperie has long been the dream of chef/owner, Kyong Yi. In 2008 she found the perfect location positioned in the heart of the historic district Old Town Alexandria.

Together with her sister, Sunyi, they have transformed a brick row house into a delightful, little café that exudes the atmosphere of a charming French creperie. The sister team unveils a distinctive café stemmed from the comforts of good food and European style to the savvy people of Old town. .

Since graduating from the California Culinary Academy of San Francisco in 1995, Kyong has worked at some of the finest restaurants in Washington, D.C.: Teatro Goldoni, Galileo, Ritz-Carlton, and Sodexho Marriott at National Geographic Society. But it was during a visit to Vienna, Austria, that Kyong became fascinated by the cozy sidewalk cafes and other small eateries where one could dine at a leisurely pace.

The café culture allowed time between courses for good table conversation as well as time to savor our meal. We reveled in watching the expression on people's faces and could see that the food was thoroughly enjoyed.

This began her dream.... ‘Why couldn't I open up a cafe?" And in February 2008, Fontaine became her reality. Now you can enjoy the most wonderful crêpes you can imagine, from sweet chocolate crêpes to bratwurst crêpes for dinner. Fontaine is open for lunch and dinner, as well as a magnifcent Weekend Brunch.
