Yesterday, I went to meet with a dear friend in Old Town Manassas Virginia for lunch. It was a rainy brisk fall day here in Virginia. My friend suggested we lunch at the City Square Cafe. It was a charming neighborhood restaurant with a very friendly staff and a quiet atmosphere. We both ordered their signature sandwich which was a Ham Sandwich with apple slices and Swiss cheese on a whole grain bread served with fries. Yum! If you haven't been there, they have a very nice menu check it out here
Now it was time to walk around and explore what Old Town Manassas Virginia had to offer in the way of shopping. We were immediately drawn into the shop photographed below, just because of the window dressings. The polar bears snow scene is something you would see in a New York Macy's window during the holidays. Gorgeous!This place oozes charm! It's called Allyssa Bryn, Home Interiors & Gifts
Once inside it got even better! This is the perfect place to find all those gifts you need for your girlfriends and co-workers. You can even book a Day Spa visit, get you hair done, shop for Silver Jewelry, Vera Bradley,Shoes, Sweaters, Scarves and fashion jewelry. It is a wonder boutique store. In the back is another shop where you can find soaps, baby clothes, have even have things mono-gramed. There are so many unique one of kind impulse items. You know the kind of store I'm talking about. The kind that fills you up at every turn.
Next we headed over to the Opera House Gifts & Gourmet. Now this is a gorgeous shop! Everything from wines, to find chocolates, glassware, bar items,awesome hostess gifts and unique one of kind items you would love to give or receive. The wine selection is extensive.Trust me on this one.
As we walk we happened upon the window that said Coffee-Expresso-Pastries and Cakes no one had to twist our arms. In we went. The shop was called Persnickety Cakes . I don't know about you, however there is something wonderful about being able to order a cup cake. It gives me a chance to try something I have never had for a very small investment. I tried, a Red Velvet cup cake, and my friend had a Peanut Butter Cup Cake, both were delicious. Each cupcake was $1.89. They do special orders and cakes as well.
