Poppyseed Rye Offers Fresh Flowers and Fresh Food Near Your Arlington Apartment

Looking for a lunch spot that will be the highlight of your day, maybe even your week? Head to the newly opened craft sandwich and fresh flower cafe, Poppyseed Rye. A combination that hasn’t been explored before, this restaurant-slash-floral shop is decorated with waterfall florals and greenery everywhere you look. The beautiful blooms are an instant mood boost, and you can buy some to bring back to your Arlington apartment. 

For your meal, the menu features a variety of sandwiches, open-faced toasts, salads, and beverages. Quick favorites are the lump crab toast with avocado, pickled bell peppers, corn, micro basil, and ground corn nuts, as well as the roasted pork sandwich, which is essentially a Cubano. Pair your main with a side like the fennel and watermelon radish salad or the antipasto salad for a real treat. Then, for drinks, they have house specialties like strawberry basil lemonade, Sprecher brand sodas, as well as wine, beer, and cold-pressed juices.

There’s a great selection of options for both meat-lovers and vegetarians, which makes it a great spot for a work lunch when you don’t know everyone’s preferences.
