The story of Veronica’s Bakery is a real American success story: the family behind the bakery has roots in Latin America, but after moving to Virginia, they built up a small chain of related restaurants that includes Veronica’s Bakery and Cafe. Today, this popular Alexandria eatery serves Salvadoran and Honduran specialties for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and regulars say it’s great no matter what time of day you visit.
You can stop by for a quick pastry from the case and a cup of coffee on your way to work, or sit down with a group of friends for an authentic Latin American meal for lunch or dinner. Try the Honduran baleadas or Salvadoran papusas for a hearty lunch (don’t forget to add rice and beans), or go for the kitchen’s signature carne asada tacos, which regulars say feature expertly grilled beef on house-made corn tortillas you won’t want to miss.
