Bittersweet has been around for years, and their menu shows it in it's lack of innovation and tedium. Prices are high, the desserts are very disappointing. The servie used to be friendly and chirpy, but after having had a uncomfortable encounter with the owner over a quality issue, I can understand where the "bitter' in the name comes form.

There are plenty of better, and cheaper places to go in Alexandria.

Pros: location

Cons: Tiresome menu; arrogant staff

The cafe is mediocre. The best thing about Bittersweet is their large lemonades and ice tea. Their baked goods are yummy, but I have had better. For some reason, they are always crowded and it is hard to find a seat. They cater to the upper middle class and the appearance of this is apparent by the patrons there for lunch.

I have eaten their salad and quiche and it was not very good at all. The salad was limp and the quiche tasted like leather. As far as cafes go in Old Town, it is overrated. There are many other places that are better, but may not have that upwardly mobile atmosphere.
