Sad news from Leesburg where today the Eggspectation restaurant announced it has permanently closed. A large sign was posted on the front door of the restaurant at the Village at Leesburg. The reason — fallout from COVID-19.

The Eggspectation at VAL opened back in early 2011 and quickly became popular for its brunch style dishes — ergo the name — as well as its large bar and famous Bloody Marys and other libations.
