Satiate your sweet tooth with a trip to Voila Pastry & Cafe. This North Kings Highway bakery and patisserie is one of the best you’ll find in Old Town Alexandria, and for that, it is well-worth checking out.
Voila is the brainchild of Chef Mekdes, who prides herself on making all of her baked goods and coffee drinks fresh and with only the best natural ingredients. As such, there are no bad choices on the menu. If you stop by during breakfast, you can enjoy brioche, biscuits, danishes, and more. Come by for an afternoon pick-me-up and enjoy macarons and other various styles of cookies while partaking in a delicious cafe latte or espresso. Desserts here are really something to savor, especially when options like fruit tarts, eclairs, and a plethora of mousses are in play. Stop by sometime soon to see why folks call this one of the area’s “hidden gems.”
