Welcome to Leesburg
Loudoun’s county seat is a picturesque little burg with a historic downtown bustling with restaurants, cafes, bars, breweries, boutiques and chic home décor stores. Dine on oysters, tacos and farm-to-table fare on King Street (our restaurant row), find a unique gift and soak up the storied ambience of a town that, once home to icons such as General George C. Marshall, is now the residence of artists, designers, tech entrepreneurs and more.
King Street is teeming with lively bars and eateries. Try the lobster roll and spicy Kentucky Mule cocktail at King Street Oyster Bar
, the locavore cheese plate and wine flights at farm-to-table Wine Kitchen
, spicy tacos at modish New-Mexican Señor Ramon
or fine dining (and piano music) at the iconic Lightfoot Restaurant.
Leesburg Coffee Corridor
There are no less than seven coffee shops and espresso bars within a few blocks of each other on and around King Street, earning it the sobriquet Leesburg CoCo. The eponymous King Street Coffee
serves award-winning local roaster Lone Oak Coffee as does the cozy Euro-style SideBar Coffee
. The secret garden at Shoes Cup & Cork
is great for a sandwich and an iced latte as is the courtyard of Cowbell Kitchen
across the street. At the corner of Church and Market streets, try Trinity House Café
for a Café Dos Leches featuring a hint of nutmeg or visit newly opened Goosecup
, which roasts its own beans, sourcing from Zambia, Ethiopia, Honduras and elsewhere.
Opened in 1931 as Leesburg’s first movie house, Tally Ho Theater
now features big name musicians such as David Allen Coe and Uncle Kracker, as well as frequent retro acts and cover bands.
Explore Market Station
Comprising of a restored mill and relocated freight depot, the Market Station precinct is home to beloved local restaurants Fire Works
(Chinese), Tuscarora Mill
(American bistro) and South Street Under
(don't miss the fresh-baked ciabatta), as well as a brewery, cidery, nail salon, health food store and the Loudoun Visitor Center.
