As perhaps the most delicious holiday of the year, National Donut Day is a hole lot of fun. Whether you like glaze, sprinkles or peanuts, we’ve got you covered for some of the freshest local donut hot spots in town to celebrate this sweet holiday.
Crazy Good Donuts and Ice Cream
There may be nothing better than made-to-order cake donuts. Locally-owned Crazy Good Donuts and Ice Cream, in Sandbridge Beach, is a must-visit for any donut lover. Although donuts are traditionally considered morning fare, this shop is dishing out these sweet eats from dusk until dawn. For an insanely good night time treat, try a strawberry cheesecake donut sundae, complete with whipped cream and a cherry.
If you’re looking for a little savory with your morning sweetness, you can’t miss Duck Donuts and their popular maple icing covered in delicious bacon. Originally hailing from Duck, North Carolina, and since setting up shop in Virginia Beach, Duck Donuts is quickly becoming an East Coast staple, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
When you find yourself enjoying the sun at the Oceanfront Resort District, stop into local-favorite, Dough Joe’s, and enjoy a completely customizable breakfast with multiple flavors of donut, icing and topping from which to choose. The options are endless.
Originally a Richmond staple, Sugar Shack is the newest addition to the fried dough scene in Virginia Beach. While they have several shops throughout the state, each shop is locally-owned and uses only fresh fruit and other ingredients in making their hand-rolled, small-batch donuts. More importantly, however, these donuts are deliciously creative and addicting. With flavors like Caramel Macchiato, Samoa, and Honey Lavender, a dozen of these donuts will keep you on your toes.
So, mark your calendars and grab a hot cup of joe. Donut Day is coming to Virginia Beach, and a celebration is in order.
