What gas station has the best gas?
We love funky finds, especially if there’s good food to be had. Check out these old filling stations with new purpose: serving great food and drink in a fun, quirky, cute atmosphere.
in Montross is a coffeehouse and art gallery neatly tucked into an old three-bay service station on Kings Highway. The folks here serve up made-to-order breakfast and lunch with a range of gourmet coffees to accompany. Menu finds range from crab omelettes to blueberry pancakes; there’s surely something to please your palate.
As far as the art goes, co-owner Holly Harman displays her original watercolors and welcomes other artists to display as well. You’ll find jewelry, pottery, photography, and more at The Art of Coffee. The perfect accompaniment to this very interesting destination? Open mic for poetry readings and live music. When the evenings are nice, the bay doors roll up to stretch the indoors out. Very nice.
has not lost the authentic look of its gas station home on Route 234 in Manassas. In fact, they’ve embraced it, adding coastal flair to match their fare: seafood. Family owned and operated since 1980, Crosby’s calls themselves “a fresh seafood market like you’d find at the beach only not at the beach.” The family catches, selects, and sells only the finest, freshest seafood. Actually, it’s common to find alligator and frog legs for the taking, too. Louisiana crawfish are available after Mardi Gras, Alaskan Halibut and wild Salmon can be shipped in fresh, and Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab (hard and soft shell) are available just about all of the time. The range of fish and shellfish is wide, so just ask. Perhaps ye shall receive.
It might take you a minute to see what was once Ritchie’s Mobilgas when you approach on North Market Street in Old Town Petersburg, but it’s there. The dining room sits inside the garage. Just look up and see that the owners chose to keep the steel girder for the engine hoist. As for the menu at The Bistro, it’s been described as hip and unconventional, but delicious, with entrees like honey-glazed duck and shrimp crostini. The taste is fresh and local, thanks to area farm-raised produce.
