Instead of an ice-cold beer or a summer spritzer, toast is the name of the game for this bar. Toastique, a gourmet toast and juice bar in The Wharf and Old Town Alexandria, is making every #ToastTuesday an Instagram-worthy event.
Put that plain English muffin or basic cream cheese bagel to rest.
Nearly every breakfast joint in the country has jumped on the avocado toast bandwagon, but how many orders of the same basic breakfast can one person have without needing a change of pace? If you’re looking for a twist on this brunch classic, you’ve come to the right place.
Toastique serves a variety of savory toasts on thick, crunchy bread, with two additional sweet toasts also on the menu. While this shop rightfully prides itself on its tasty toast creations, it also takes pride in using the freshest ingredients, free from all additives, preservatives, artificial sugars, and artificial coloring.
And for all of the serious brunchers out there, you can choose to find the perfect match for your toast from a number of fresh juices made with ingredients such as Blue Majik spirulina (nutrient-dense algae) and activated charcoal, which is often consumed to rid toxins from the body. See? Far from basic.
You can find Toastique at 764 Maine Ave. SW (The Wharf) and on King St. in Old Town Alexandria serving toast from 7am to 7pm. Feel free to come in and unwind after your nearby yoga class or before hitting the trail for your morning bike ride. Yoga mats, sneakers, and cycle shoes are all welcome.
For Toastique, wholesome meals are the name of the game, so whether you’re looking for a spot to relax, recharge or refuel, they’ve got you covered. And if you want some serious breakfast inspo, follow them on Instagram.
