The new BKD Bagels is getting closer to opening its doors in downtown Leesburg and today, we’ve got a first look at the BKD menu – including the varieties of bagels that will be their bread and butter.
The BKD breakfast menu includes a line-up of curated bagel breakfast sandwiches, including the People’s Champ with smoked lox, whipped cream cheese, tomato, red onion and capers; and the Lucky Penny, a bagel with sliced pastrami, havarti cheese, a fluffed farm egg and a chipotle gourmaise, a type of mayonaise.
There is also a create-your-own option where you choose your bagel and your own toppings in any combo you want. Bagel choices include:
- jalapeño cheddar
- cinnamon raisin
- rye dill
- and a seasonal pumpkin bagel
The lunch menu — which is still being finalized — will be similar with build-your-own bagel sandwiches featuring choices of cheeses and meats, as well as chef-designed sandwiches like the LoCo Italiano, the Chkn Salad, The Club House and the PZA, which is a pizza-like bagel.
A third menu will include sodas, local beers, wine, champagne and mimosas as well as drip and cold brew coffee.
The new shingle sign has recently been hung up in front of BKD Bagels, a sign that things are getting close. The bagel shop is opening in the former Bites Wine & Grilled Cheese Bar location at 105 South King Street.
BKD has been around for more than a year now — making small batches of gourmet bagels that were delivered to or picked up by eager customers. After fine tuning their recipes and production, they are now venturing into their first brick-and-mortar location.
The BKD team hasn’t set an official opening date yet — but a safe bet is sometime this fall. Stay tuned and save a rye dill bagel for us.
