Baker's Half Dozen for Virginia Beach​

The Virginia Beach office is another one of our favorites. Our employees love their ability to visit the beach often. Additionally, this office is great for employees with large families that enjoy water activities such as boating or skiing.

Three Ships Coffee

This coffee shop is absolutely adorable. The pastries, biscuits, and fresh toasts are very well known. The avocado toast is our employees personal favorites as it is filling yet healthy. Tell us your favorite toast in the comments below.

Waterman’s Restaurant 

Sea food is always better by the water, right? Waterman’s restaurant is no exception to this trend as they serve all kinds of delicious fish. And the best part is Waterman’s has unique Virginia apparel for tourists. And lastly if you like shrimp, we recommended you order fried butterflied jumbo shrimp. 

Cape Henry’s Lighthouse

The building of this light house was first authorized by George Washington and then was overseen by Alexander Hamilton. Cape Henry’s light house is near the area where the first English settlers arrived on their way to Jamestown. Today the lighthouse is a good place to sight sea and take pictures overlooking the water. 

Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center

Who doesn’t love a good marine science center? If you are interested in sea animals stop by and check out the exhibits along with volunteer and intern opportunities. Check online and see if the Aquarium is showing any movies during the days of your next visit!

Sugar Plum Bakery

This is our favorite spot in Virginia Beach. This cute bakery serves unique sweet treats and employs disabled workers. The mission of the bakery is too attempt to train and educate disabled workers, allowing them to become more integrated in society. Check this spot out next time you are in VA beach!

The Neptune Statue

This is a 34 foot statue stands in Neptune Park. The statue was dedicated to the citizens of Virginia Beach. This statue is well made and visually appealing. Next time you have the opportunity, take a leisurely walk through Neptune park.
