Nothing gets me more excited than a boutique grocery. Somewhere you can run into, pick up 10 random items and have the most unique picnic. I found this in Old Town Alexandria at Society Fair.
Each table display was centered around a different food category (my favorite food categories). These food categories included: chocolate & sweets, cheese, baked goods, wine and coffee.
I’m telling you, you can walk in with a blindfold, pick things up and come out with a bunch of delectables.
There is a cold area with items ranging from fresh guacamole to homemade yogurt parfaits. There is also a bar where you can order tasty sandwiches.
The ice coffee—my summer favorite—was delicious. I took mine to go, but the comfy plush leather chairs were calling my name for my next coffee break.
Who I would take as my date: My girlfriends for a coffee pick-me-up after shopping in Old Town!
