When Glazed Donuts put out its shingle in 2012, it wasn't long before the bakery started appearing on best-of lists in many high-profile publications. The owners, both respected chefs, have made an art of mixing, fermenting, frying and glazing dough each day. The result: gourmet donuts that are almost too pretty to eat. Everything is made from scratch all the way down to the sprinkles. They usually make about 12 different varieties each day in creative flavors like Cuban Coffee with dulce de leeches and Valrhona chocolate. The ones sweetened with local fruits vary seasonally like lemon mascarponé cream with candied plums. Their Key lime pie donut could double as dessert, filled with tart custard and topped with dollops of meringue. Pair with their house roast, Red Buoy Coffee from Northern Guatemala. Make sure to get there early, so you can peruse the full selection before they sell out.
- Breakfast: "Best paired with a steaming cup of their fresh-roasted coffee, ground to order--not to mention organic and fair trade."
- Best for Breakfast Because: For that early morning sugar-rush, these gourmet donuts in innovative flavors (Meyer lemon with pistachios, anyone?) are made from scratch--all the way down to the sprinkles.
