They catered my friend's brunch party in DC. The Croissants, Fruit Muffins and Bagels were fresh, The Fruit platters were fresh as well. The Frittata and Potato Strata were delish. Overall it was a great brunch party. By the way, the guy who delivered the food to the party was super cute :)

I think their mousse cakes are lovely. The carrot cake is also very good. I like the breakfast pastries, although my favorite poppyseed danish seems to have disappeared. The sandwiches used to be good, but now I find the quality of the bread has changed, and that pretty much ruins the sandwiches. That, along with price increases and elimination of... More

The food and owner / Tom r terrible!! The cookies were stale and the owner made a rude comment to the nice clerk - who put my stale, nasty cookies in gift box! For a small, local bakery they r THE WORST! Stay away!

I am a foodie and I had never heard of this place until a co-worker (as they say) PUT ME ON! The first time I ordered Continental Breakfast for my office....danishes, scones, sticky buns, muffins and bagels! I am on a diet, but I have to admit I had 4 sticky buns and a scone (yeah I know bad, but... More

I have ordered birthday or special cakes from here several times. This is the go-to place for whole cake in southern Arlington and Alexandria area. The cakes are not only looking good but tasting good (not only the taste of sugar but has flavors!).

The pastries are worth getting up early for. We found that we had to get them early or they were gone. The apple, blueberry and cherry were very good.

Looking for a bagel place on our way to Mount Vernon, we stumbled on this bakery. I must say the case of pastries looked awesome, but we ended up getting the egg, cheese and canadian bacon on a croissant. A little greasy for my taste, but it satisfied our need for coffee and breakfast. Far from our hotel, but might... More

The West End is fortunate to have Alexandria Pastry Shop is close proximity, It has become an institution for nearby neighbors but also for other Alexandrians who come to shop in this shopping center. A full selection of pastries, bagels and breads along with special breakfast sandwiches draw customers in to get the day started on the right foot (check... More

Staff at the counter are very knowledgeable about all the products. You ask a question, they take you to the product and tell you how it tastes (flavors and contents) and the details. The pastry selections change daily so you know they are fresh- love it! They bake on site!! This is one of the few bakeries in the Alexandria... More

We went here for a quick sandwich/light lunch. The food was average to good. I had a meatball sub which I found to be quite good! The place seemed clean and moderately priced. The staff seemed a little unfriendly, but it was busy when we were there. Also had a delicious apricot bar thing which was delicious!
