Hometown Eats: Donnie D's Bagels and Deli in Daleville

By  | 

DALEVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) If you're looking for incredible bagels and delicious deli sandwiches, Donnie D's in Daleville is a must try.

Despite only being open for a short time, Donnie D's has become really popular in Botetourt County.

"I think they’re fresh every single day, and honestly there’s not a good bagel place around to compare it to,” said Ashlyn Grantham, a regular there.

Owner Donnie Degeorgis and his staff wake up real early every morning to make all their bagels fresh. They've got to start early now because they're pumping out on average 1,000 bagels every day.

"They actually sit in the cooler for 8 hours prior to being consumed and baked," Degeorgis said. "They actually have develop a big crust on them.”

You can get just about every variety of bagel you can imagine. If you want to spice it up, try some of the homemade cream cheeses.

But if it's sandwiches you're after, you are also in luck. Donnie D's serves up delicious breakfast and lunch sandwiches that will have you coming back for more.

On the breakfast menu, you've got to try the Taylor Ham. Two thick slices of Taylor ham serve as bun to a fried egg and cheese, which all fits perfectly inside a fresh baked bagel.

Be sure to wash it down with some homemade butter beer, made famous with the Harry Potter series.

On the lunch side of things, try the Donnie D's cheese steak.
