Old Town Favorite Now New Rosemont Favorite GRAPE + BEAN

rosemont grape + beanWhile the Old Town Alexandria GRAPE + BEAN at 118 South Royal Street has long been my “go to” lunch spot, now the Rosemont location at 2 East Walnut Street is offering dine-in service. 

Opened as a wine and coffee market in March 2012, the shop continues to carry wines, beers, direct trade whole bean and brewed coffee, tea, organic milk, eggs, cheese and handmade breads to take home, but the store is now offering dine-in service.

old town alexandria grape + beanArtisan wines, hand crafted beers, coffee, tea and much more, GRAPE + BEAN is a locally owned company featuring small producers from around the world.  Featuring local, natural and organic beverages and food whenever possible, a lot of thought goes into each wine and product. 

More than just a wine and coffee shop, GRAPE + BEAN also offers wine classes and tasting events.  

Both locations offer a welcoming comfortable "neighborhood" feel, as well as attentive and knowledgeable service.  Whether stopping by a tasting, picking up staples to take home or having a meal, GRAPE + BEAN offers high quality food and drink in a professional, elegantly casual style. 

Two of my favorite sandwiches at GRAPE + BEAN include the Smoked Salmon and Cucumber, which is served open-faced on handmade multigrain bread and brushed with fresh tomato puree and the Rosemary Ham and Gruyere, which pairs sliced Fra Mani rosemary ham and melted cave aged Swiss Gruyere on toasted potato rosemary bread. 

Ooh, my mouth is watering just typing this.  It's lunchtime!
