A local favorite for breakfast or lunch is the Leesburg Diner, located in the heart of downtown on King Street. My family loves to stop in occasionally as a special treat after church on Sunday.
This is not your stereotypical greasy spoon diner, it’s elevated, healthy, and delicious breakfast and lunch fare. One classic diner trait that I love is that the server leaves a carafe of coffee on the table, so you never have to wait for refills!
During this particular meal, enjoyed in February prior to the COVID-19 stay at home recommendation, we enjoyed Eggs Benedict, Huevos Rancheros, a chocolate chip pancake for the kids, and cinnamon rolls.
This restaurant has a kid friendly atmosphere, but be aware that there is no kids menu. Our kids have been satisfied with the a la carte breakfast menu items, so the lack of a kids menu has not been a problem for us. The restaurant has enough ambient noise that children are not a disruption to others, and the televisions in the restaurant provide distraction to the kids when they’re done eating. As it is in a historic building, the bathrooms are small and do not have changing tables.
Watch my YouTube video to see the full review of the Leesburg Diner. I highly recommend stopping in for a bite once we can frequent restaurants again!
Brookmeade is a condominium complex that is well loved by its residents. It’s located in the town of Leesburg, off Gateway Drive and Harrison Street. That puts it in easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants in the southeast east portion of Catoctin Circle, between Market Street and King Street. Attractions include the weekly farmers market at the Virginia Village shopping center.
Brookmeade has three floors, and the units are two and three bedroom condos. Each unit is one level. Units often come up for sale and rent. The complex is dog friendly, too.
People love living in Brookmeade! Residents speak highly of the great location. They love being close to downtown Leesburg for fun, and close to the toll road and Route 7 for commuting to work. Residents also enjoy the clean condo common grounds, and the beautiful pool.

Leesburg Gateway II is a condominium complex in the town of Leesburg, inside the bypass, near the intersection of Gateway Drive and Harrison Street. The buildings in the complex all have addresses on Constellation Square SE.
Leesburg Gateway II is a popular complex, with some original owners still in residence. Residents love the location, which is convenient to downtown Leesburg, Market Street, and Route 7. People rave about how quickly they can get to anything.
The community is also set apart by the friendly community atmosphere. Residents know their neighbors, and people help one another. One woman shared a story about how her neighbors took her to urgent care after an injury recently. The neighborly vibe and pride in residence is evidence by how people take care of their door areas, with many decorating with wreathes and other ornamentals.
Residents also speak highly of the HOA management company. Every stairwell has a bulletin board with the latest news and reminders. The management company also provides useful services, such as coordinating dryer vent cleaning annually (included in the HOA dues).
The outdoor spaces of the community are well maintained. The neighborhood is dog friendly, and dog owners are diligent about picking up after their pets and keeping clean walkways and grass. There is also plenty of visitor parking.
Leesburg Gateway II has 1, 2, and 3 bedroom units that are sold and rented. It’s a popular neighborhood, so places get scooped up quickly. I am very familiar with the rental and sale markets in this community, and I would be happy to help you find your new home in Leesburg Gateway II. Call or email me today!
