From the suburbs of D.C. to the Blue Ridge Mountains to the shores of Hampton Roads, the Commonwealth is stuffed to the brim with quality doughnuts. 

Amazing Glazed, Chesapeake and Virginia Beach

Getting its start in Chesapeake and eventually branching out to Virginia Beach, Amazing Glazed has humble beginnings and serves not only doughnuts, but also gelato, custard, and sorbet. Amazing Glazed also brings new ideas to the table with doughnuts topped with frozen custard. With a simple process of picking your cake doughnut flavor, adding an icing, and finally a topping and/or drizzle, you can make your own custom sweet.

Astro Donuts & Fried Chicken, Falls Church

Not only does Astro Donuts & Fried Chicken combine the two distinct flavors of sweet and savory, it also serves an uncommon square donut. Having four different yeast doughnuts and four different cake doughnuts, along with distinctive sauce choices for the fried chicken, there are heaps of options.

Carol Lee Donut Shop, Blacksburg

Divided into a cake shop and a doughnut shop, Carol Lee has the confections from your childhood. Based in the Virginia Tech college town of Blacksburg, this doughnut shop attracts customers from around the world with the freshness of its sweets and has been satisfying cravings since 1969. Voted the best bakery in Blacksburg by the Virginia Tech students, Carol Lee Donut Shop is a must-try.

The Galactic Donut, Stuarts Draft

With 18 flavors to choose from, or a create-your-own option, these doughnuts are fresh and made-to-order every time. The Galactic Donut also supports local businesses by serving Blanchard’s coffee and Snowing in Space coffee alongside its treats.

Hot Diggity Donuts, Richmond

Based out of Richmond, Hot Diggity Donuts prides itself on the dough of its sourdough doughnuts. Focusing on strong flavors, the doughnuts aren’t overly sweet, but are slightly sweet mixed with slightly sour. Hot Diggity Donuts also serves cocktails and coffee. The menu changes seasonally in hopes of taking advantage of the ripest ingredients during the best time.
