We had really wanted to have a meal in the Bistro when we were at the American Girl store at Tyson’s Corner on Friday, but they were setting up for a big Charity Event to benefit Children’s Hospital so the Bistro was closed. They do have a Sweet Treats (or Dessert) Bar at the entrance of the Bistro which was open so we did get to have a little snack. The Bistro is bright and colorful and the Birthday Party room is located at the back of the Bistro. Right now they are completely BOOKED for weeks in the Bistro, so definitely call ahead and don’t be disappointed if you just happen to be at the store and cannot get in to the Bistro.

AGDC Dessert bar

Sweet Treats! Each dessert ordered comes with one “girl sized” treat and one for your dolls, too! CUTE!

The lollipops were such a fun addition to the entire display.

Bistro Menu at American Girl Store

The menu at the American Girl Bistro in Tyson’s Corner features playful twists on restaurant favorites. For $16.50 each, guests select an appetizer, main course item and a dessert. I assume the menu for Tea may be a different cost. Some of the drinks and desserts are priced individually, too.

Loaner dolls at american girl store

Girls are more than welcome to bring their favorite doll to the American Girl store and they even have Treat Seats for the dolls to sit in at the table. If you don’t have your doll with you, the Bistro has a large selection of loaner dolls you can borrow so you don’t have to dine alone.

American Girl Brownies

Chrissa came to the store with us and she was in the mood for chocolately brownies.

Chrissa enjoyed her tea at the dessert bar and had fun asking questions using the Table Talkers on the counter.

Enjoying treats

We all enjoyed our treats and will definitely get a reservation for later this summer so we can go enjoy a full meal in the Bistro. Yummy!
