I seem to be on the never ending quest for donuts these days. They’ve replaced cupcakes, something I was obsessed with a few years ago. Every time I see and article touting the best 10 donut shops in the city, I have to try all of them because I’m curious to see what makes one stand out over the other.
This time, I tried Sugar Shack in Alexandria. The only problem with donut sampling is that you should get there as early as possible. That’s when you’ll see the largest variety. I arrived at Sugar Shack around 2 pm. Typically, I purchase on of everything they sell and take one bite of everything.
My selection options were one place cake glazed and two cake red velvet glazed. I bought all three (Since red velvet is Miles’ favorite, I bought an extra for him). I have to say that the donuts were pretty delicious. The plain had just the right amount of vanilla and the red velvet was just like eating a handheld slice of cake without the cream cheese frosting.
I claim this visit a success and I will definitely make a trip back earlier in the day to sample more of their flavors!
