Mace at Hugs & Donuts this morning
I was at a party Saturday night debating "the best donut shop" with fellow party-goers when this dude overheard us and yelled "ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT DONUTS? CHRISTY'S IS THE BESH!!" and then returned to his conversation across the room. Pretty sure that guy was wasted, but still, Houstonians like donuts. Specifically, from these six places.
TOP SIX DONUT SHOPS IN HOUSTON
Hugs & Donuts - The Heights is about a 20 minute drive from my house. Longer if you happen to get pulled over for a speeding ticket. M@THER F@CKER! It was fun to be there this morning for the opening and my apple fritter was good - but I don't know that I'd go out of my way to make the trip again.
River Oaks Donuts - They melt in your mouth. There is nothing bad about this place.
Christys - Worst branding. Best donuts. I think this is my favorite?!
Shipleys - Their donuts are so good and their coffee is so bad.
The Grove Do-Nutz & Deli - This is in Richmond, Texas and because I don't know where that is, I've yet to go here.
Doughmaker Donuts - Doughnuts a la a foodtruck.
Macy went with a sprinkles donut. We also got a "lemon merginue" donut to try (not a fan) and a"birthday cake" donut (it was good if you like cake donuts) to sample as well. We got Danny a salmon/cream cheese/bagel/kolache situation which he enjoyed.
*Houstonians, weigh in on this. Which donut shop is your fave? Am I missing any?
