Mayor Kelly Burk will be on hand for a ribbon cutting at the long-awaited upscale dessert house Mocatinas Friday, Oct. 16 at 3 p.m.
Mocatinas transformed the old public defender’s building in downtown Leesburg into an “Instagrammable” space with super-size French macarons in colorful, creative designs and flavors, ice cream, pastries, cakes, and variety of drinks from espressos, lattes, cremosas and “shakearatos.”
Mocatinas was scheduled to open in March, but due to the pandemic, a normal grand opening was delayed. The shop opened in April, and as the pandemic restrictions were slowly rolled back, people began to come in to support it. And now, seven months later, it will finally get its formal grand opening.
“We are beyond grateful to the out pour of support from locals during these times, and because of our loyal customers, we are finally able to formally introduce, and celebrate the opening with the community and to members of the media,” the shop’s owners wrote in the announcement.
Mocatinas is at 3 East Market Street in Leesburg. For more information visit Mocatinas.com.
