Fresh bagels and hot eggs are a breakfast match made in heaven, and Botta Bing Bagel & Deli has this combo down pat. Whether you’re a sausage egg and cheese fan, or more of a lox and cream cheese person, they’ve got you covered. There are so many different combinations of sandwiches to choose between with their wide variety of bagels, and protein and topping options at an affordable price point. If you’re not feeling a bagel, don’t worry, they also have several omelet options and serve both pancakes and French toast as well to satisfy your morning munchies. Botta Bing Bagel & Deli is open on weekdays from 5:00 am-2:00 pm and 7:00 am-2:00 pm on weekends.


Lunch: Robiolina Italian Cuisine

356 Garrisonvile Rd, Stafford VA 22554

When lunchtime rolls around and your stomach won’t stop growling, it’s time to head to Robiolina Italian Cuisine. With takeout and dine-in options, they’ll keep you fed regardless of the length of your lunch break. Fresh pasta made in-house is the core ingredient for several of their lunch entrees; Capellini, Linguine Luciana, and Linguine Agile e Olio e Peperoncino just to name a few! If you’re not a huge pasta fan, no worries, they also have Chicken Marsala, Piccata, and Fiorentina as well as a rotating Soup of the Day and a solid lineup of salads including a Roasted Beet Salad and a classic Chicken Caesar option. Their lunch special is affordable and they have a handful of gluten-free, vegan, and organic dishes to round out their menu. Robiolina Italian Cuisine is open daily for lunch at 11:30 am excluding Tuesdays.


Dinner: Fatty’s Taphouse

225 Garrisonville Rd, Stafford VA 22554

Calling all Stafford county seafood and beer lovers for dinner, Fatty’s Taphouse has you covered. Seafood is their specialty, so we recommend bringing a friend or a few with you to share some appetizers or a steam pot.  They’ve got more seafood options than you can count on both hands. From Calamari to Pale Ale Mussels and Alligator Skewers for seafood lovers, and buffalo chicken dip, quesadillas, and tater tots for those who prefer their food from land, there’s something for everyone. For the beer connoisseur, Fatty’s has over 2 dozen beer taps for you to mix and match your drink to your food. Their handhelds menu also offers a combination of land and sea choices, and their portion sizes are generous enough that you’ll likely be asking for a to-go box at the end of your meal! Fatty’s Taphouse is open weekdays from 11am-12am Sunday through Thursday and 11am-2am on Fridays and Saturdays.


Dessert: Koi Tea

418 Garrisonville Rd. Suite 114, Stafford VA 22554

If you’ve got a sweet tooth and an appreciation for cleverly named menu items, you can’t go wrong with Koi Tea. Although their specialty is boba tea, their hand-rolled ice cream is also a must-try on their menu. They pride themselves on keeping a simple menu packed full of flavor and are constantly evolving their menu with yummy new flavor combinations.  For Boba lovers, their “Koiffee” is a perfect blend between boba and coffee. For those with sensitivities to dairy, they offer dairy milk alternatives almond milk and coconut milk. To drink, they also have lemonade, Piña Colada tea, a “Legally Blonde” strawberry milkshake, and Taro tea which is anything but “Taro-able”. Ice cream wise, their “Milk and Cookies” ice cream roll is their take on a classic, cookies, and cream, and their “Garrisonville Road” with mashed graham crackers, marshmallow fluff, and brownie mix is another fan favorite despite the rocky road it’s named after. Koi Tea is open 7 days a week from 12:00 pm -9:00 pm.
