Permanent signage is up and construction is ongoing at the upcoming Neal’s Bagels in Kentlands. Neal’s Bagels is relocating from its current location about a mile and a half away at 12141 Darnestown Rd in the Potomac Valley shopping center in Gaithersburg. The Jewish deli has been there for about 30 years, previously operating under the name Bagels Delox. The new shop will be located in the Kentlands paseo, next to Burtons and across from RanKen Noodle House. Originally scheduled to open this month, we’re told the store is now on track to open in June. The Darnestown Rd location will remain open in the meantime.
The plan for the Kentlands location is to include indoor seating, as well as an outdoor patio where customers can enjoy their breakfast. Additions will include a grill that will allow the breakfast spot to add fresh-made eggs to breakfast sandwiches, omelets, pancakes, and waffles.
Addition businesses coming soon to Kentlands:
- Potomac Cookie Co is coming to 109A Market, near Moby Dick and next to Poke Bros. Potomac Cookie is known for its “giant size” 4oz cookies. Flavors include Choco-delight, Da Fudge, Dorothy’s Slippers, Double Dutch, Peebee ‘n’ Yay!, and S’more Love. No opening date for Potomac Cookie Co has been announced.
