We stopped by Saturday morning and grabbed a coffee at Aromas. We started our walk around the exhibits under youth art tent outside of Kilwins and walked towards Aromas.
We viewed the back rows first, stopping in to see a few new and notable artists. Also, a stop by the Phill Singer booth to grab a new piece of art. This year, we let our 9 year old son pick out a piece to hang in his room.
Then, we walked along Duke of Gloucester street looking at sculpture, jewelry, photography and more.
Lunch at La Piazza in Williamsburg
By 11:30 the kids were hungry so we tried La Piazza (it used to be the Trellis), an Italian bistro. We sat outside on the patio and shared a panini of the day and a caprese burger.
The kids opted for the mac and cheese and it was amazing (pictured below). The portions were large and scrumptious. We finished off lunch with a black coffee.
10/10 I definitely recommend having lunch or dinner here.
