For our Letterpress Workshop lunch break, Stuart suggested that we eat at Evening Star Cafe, a gem that sits on a cute block of neighborhood restaurants and shops like an oasis in Alexandria suburbia. We snagged the boxed window booth and indulged in dirty bloody marys and the cafe's popular mimosas. We both ordered from the brunch menu - I had the most amazing lemon-buttermilk pancakes with blueberry compote (seriously, I have never eaten pancakes with lemon - incredible!). Eric captured the plate of beauty here:
Eric enjoyed his gravy biscuits smathered with eggs on top! A pile of deliciousness. We are huge breakfast fans. Evening Star was a real treat; though I must add that no one can top homemade breakfast burritos with Sriracha hot chili sauce made by this wonderful man!
