Tour Partner Spotlight: Virginia Diner Shoppe
In this partner spotlight, we’ll take a look a unique Carytown store: The Virginia Diner Shoppe
The Virginia Diner Shoppe acts as an outpost of the famous Virginia Diner in Wakefield, VA. The Shoppe offers a number of things you’ll find at the flagship restaurant, and a whole lot more! From dozens of varieties of hot sauce to flags to gifts and trinkets, there is something in this store for just about anyone. Of course, you’ll also find shelves stacked with varieties of those famous Virginia peanuts.
River City Food Tours Sample Item
We wouldn’t dare bring you to the Virginia Diner Shoppe and not let you try the peanuts! When you visit this store during our Carytown Food Tour, you’ll find up to three varieties of peanuts waiting for you. And not just any peanuts; these are Super Extra Large Virginia Peanuts, the largest grown in the US. The peanuts are then soaked and cooked at just the right temperature to make them perfectly crunchy. Finally, they are seasoned to provide the variety of flavors on offer!
Something Else To Try
The Virginia Diner Shoppe is a great place to find a gift for someone special. There is an assortment of college-logo’d flags, kitchenware, and decorations. You can also find dozens of varieties of mixed nuts, if peanuts aren’t your thing.
The Virginia Diner Shoppe is located in Carytown, at 3004-B W. Cary St. There is on-street parking and a nearby parking garage on Colonial Ave.
