All summer long, locals around Leesburg have eagerly awaited the impending arrival of Churrology, a new churro shop in downtown Leesburg. Well, their wait is over. Churrology is holding its soft opening (meaning without a lot of fanfare) this Friday, Sep. 8 and Saturday, Sep. 9.

The new sweets shop is located inside the B Doughnut shop at 7 Loudoun Street SW. Churrology will share space with the gourmet doughnut shop, keeping customers coming in once the morning doughnut rush is over. Their hours this Friday and Saturday will be 2 to 7 p.m. each day.

If you haven’t had them, a churro is an elongated fried dough pastry traditional in countries like Spain and Portugal. They are often sprinkled with sugar. However, Churrology takes the concept to the extreme, topping their churros with all kinds of toppings such as chocolate, crushed cookies, even Fruity Pebbles cereal.
