The New Donut Shop In DC That Will Change The Way You Eat Your Breakfast
Donuts are such a fun treat that can definitely make you feel like a kid again. After all, they’re not even really a breakfast item. It’s like having dessert for breakfast which is what makes them so fun. While you might not be as eager to stuff your stomach with sugar before 9am as you were when you were a kid, that might change when you discover the newest donut shop in DC. Sugar Shack in Shaw is new donut shop that will have you buzzing with excitement and craving something sweet.
Many Washingtonians might know Sugar Shack because of their locations in nearby Arlington and Alexandria.
But they recently opened a location right here in DC in the Shaw neighborhood. And it definitely takes donuts to a new level.
Sugar Shack has more flavors of donuts than you could ever imagine. These are so much better than the donuts you had as a kid. They have the traditional flavors like chocolate and glazed. But they also have flavors like Fresh Ginger Peach and seasonal flavors like Pecan Pie Filled.
Sometimes they even get extra creative like their Dough Burger and their DoDogs, which are not hotdogs or hamburgers as they appear. They are in fact all donuts, just in creative ways.
Or if you stop in at the right time, you can get a Harry Potter inspired Butterbeer Donut! You can find almost any type of donut at SugarShack.
Including massive donut cakes, which are perfect for sharing... unless you really like donuts.
Of course, you need something to wash it down, Sugar Shack serves delicious fresh coffee.
Or you can stop by later on in the day and get your donut with a beer. The Shaw location even serves alcohol and cocktail inspired donuts in the evenings at "Donuts After Dark."
And if you really want to be convinced that Sugar Shack is a grown up donut shop, then you need to stop into their hidden basement cocktail bar, Nocturne.
So whether you are adventurous or traditional with your donut choices, you should make a stop at Sugar Shack in Shaw for a deliciously unforgettable experience.
Sugar Shack is located at 1932 9th Street. They are open daily at 6am. They close during the week at 8pm and on the weekends, they stay open until 2am for those late night cravings!
