Experience: Looking for an alternative to your tired old corporate chain coffee shop? Check out Trinity House Cafe! From their Mission statement: “Trinity House Café, on the corner of Church and Market Streets in the heart of historic Leesburg, VA, is an outreach of the John Paul II Fellowship, a Christian non-profit dedicated to renewing community and culture.”
On this visit, I ordered the Notre Dame breakfast (“warm croissant with butter & jam, seasonal fruits & yogurt”) and a regular coffee. The croissant (baked there) was as one should be, light and flaky. The fruit was a cup of grapes, and the yogurt was vanilla. A nicely balanced array of flavors. Wendy ordered the Breakfast Sandwich (“mini omelet with cheddar cheese in a toasted bagel”) and added a slice of ham. She also tried the C.S. Lewis Latte (“Earl Grey tea, steamed milk, cardamom, almond syrup”). Unique!
Trinity House Cafe is about more than just food. It’s about hospitality, and they host “a variety of community and culture-renewing events such as art classes, talks, concerts, theatrical performances, movie nights, craft circles, and children’s programs.” The cafe occupies the George Head House, a building from Revolutionary times, listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Leesburg Historic District. Trinity House Cafe is a warm, cozy, relaxing, inviting place to spend time with good food, good friends, and/or good books! Come on in and support a local business!
