Locally owned café chain Sweet Leaf is looking to open its seventh Northern Virginia location later this year at Reston Station.

According to a permit filed with Fairfax County, the restaurant will open at 1908 Reston Metro Plaza as part of Comstock’s BLVD development. Maggie Parker, Comstock’s vice president of communications, says the restaurant should be open in the fall.

“We’re very excited,” she said. “It’s a great restaurant — small, family-owned.”

Sweet Leaf was founded in McLean in 1991. It currently has locations in McLean, Tysons and Vienna, as well as three in Arlington.

The menu features healthful sandwiches, salads and grain bowls, and it also has breakfast options. The restaurant offers a “wide variety” of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options, according to its website.

Parker also said Salon Nordine, which closed its Reston Town Center location in September, will open at Reston Station later this year. She said the full-service salon and spa will be the first street-front tenant on Reston Station Boulevard.

Salon Nordine currently has two locations, in Merrifield’s Mosaic District and in Gainesville.

    Don’t forget if you consider eating at Sweet Leaf you will pay a flat $4.75 parking fee.

    • auditpunishment

      2 hours free parking is available for retail customers.

      • EliteinReston

        Oh, I didn’t know that. I haven’t seen any signs. Do you park in the non-Metro garage?

        • auditpunishment

          Yep, in the parkX garage turn right towards the retail sign. Starbucks validate parking for 2 hours. The metro garage is also free on weekends for unlimited times.

  • Tammi Petrine

    Hate to see any other vulnerable businesses inhabiting rental spaces that require paid parking. Would like to patronize Sweet Leaf but will NEVER pay for parking in Reston. Their McLean store is great.

    • auditpunishment

      You won’t have to pay. 2 hour free parking for all retail customers at Reston Station which should be enough time for you to get in and eat there.

  • Nyla J.

    Awesome. I hope more retail arrives soon.

  • Arielle in NoVA

    Not sure which shopping center is now called Reston Station, but I’m not paying for parking.

    • Craig Stevenson

      Its literally AT the Metro station. Its before you get off the plaza at While-Reston. (right next to starbucks)

    Also worth mentioning, local sourcing:

    “Richardson Farms is a fifth-generation family farm located in White Marsh, Maryland. We have a personal commitment to providing your family with the best tasting, freshest locally grown produce and products available. We also operate the largest farm stand in the Northeast Market in Baltimore — a market we’ve operated since 1930. In 1984, Barbara and Bill Richardson took the helm, with their six children. They expanded the farm by purchasing two nearby farms, and renting land from several others. Today, there are three generations of the family involved in the day to day operations. In 2010, the new Farm Market opened. Our family looks forward to serving your family for years to come. Thanks for stopping by!!”
