When you find a local cafe that aims to be the bright spot in your day, it’s almost as if you’ve found a second home, and that’s what Cafe du Soleil aims to be for Alexandria locals! This cafe on South Union Street is locally and independently owned, which is even more reason to support the tasty establishment!
The menu is French-inspired with delicious options for any time of day, whether you’re craving something sweet or savory. If you’re visiting for a quick breakfast, grab a cold brew or cafe au lait and pair it with a croissant breakfast sandwich or the quiche Lorraine. For a perfect lunch, crepes are always a good idea. The sweet crepes feature ingredients like Nutella, French jam and berries, or lemon with brown sugar. Savory options include veggies, prosciutto, even smoked salmon. Get one of each so you can taste a little bit of everything! Just know that no matter what you order, you’re going to be coming back for more after just one bite.
