Ever since The Stockpot opened their brick and mortar location at 700 19th Street in Virginia Beach, I’ve been looking forward to trying their “healthy comfort food”. Today, a friend and I stopped in for a spur of the moment breakfast. Having perused their menu earlier in the day, I immediately ordered the “Begger”, along with a cup of dark coffee. We settled into a spot near the large windows and waited for our meal. We instantly admired the large frames of lush green succulents decorating the long wall of the cafe. When I asked who had built the frames, the owner shared with us that they had and that he also mentioned that he was surprised at how many succulents it took to complete the project. I almost asked him if he could build me a frame of succulents! Our food was in front of us in no time, piping hot. And oh my goodness was it delicious! Everything about my breakfast sandwich was perfect, from the runny egg, to the size of the sausage, to the toasted biscuit. More customers began filtering in as the cafe became busier, and the staff bustled around. My friend and I decided to split a piece of their mouth watering Cookies & Cream cake, because hey why not. The chocolate was gooey yet firm, melt in your mouth in seconds. We went back and forth on what extra flavors we were tasting, and one of the gals said it was probably the cayenne flakes.
The Stockpot is most definitely kid friendly, a warm atmosphere with great lighting, friendly and welcoming staff (even a familar face from the Fresh Fare Cafe days!), a reasonably priced menu of healthy comfort food, and a great location. I’ll definitely be back, especially to try their soups! They are open Monday thru Saturday, 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and are closed on Sundays.
