Bite Into the Best Donuts around Richmond 

Believe it or not, over 10 billion donuts are made in the United States annually. They offer a sweet way to start the morning, and local shops serve everything from classic glazed to white chocolate raspberry. Here are the top donut shops near our Richmond apartments include. 

The Grove Do-Nutz & Deli 

The bakers start their day at The Grove Do-Nutz & Deli before the sun rises. They create their delectable offerings using time-honored techniques and the finest, freshest ingredients from local suppliers. Be sure and sample the blueberry cheesecake donut. This tasty treat features cream cheese, pie crumbs, whipped cream, and blueberry icing. 

Shipley Do-Nuts 

At the end of the Great Depression, Lawrence Shipley, Sr., created a delicious recipe for gourmet donuts. He sold his treats wholesale for five cents a dozen. Later, Lawrence opened the first Shipley Do-Nuts in Houston. Today, there are locations across the state and beyond. While glazed remains the most popular flavor, you'll find over 60 varieties. Highlights include blueberry cake, cherry iced with sprinkles, and chocolate iced with walnuts. 

The Sweet Boutique Bakery 

When Christine Nguyen decided to share her delectable treats with others, The Sweet Boutique Bakery opened its doors. She's a self-taught baker and cake designer who started by offering cupcakes, cookies, and other sweets. Her newest delight includes a baked mochi donut. It's made with rice flour and coconut milk and is a "plush, chewy bite of heaven." Flavors include pistachio rose, vanilla butter, and mango cream. You can order online for easy pickup.

After enjoying some donuts, spend a fun-filled day exploring local history at the Fort Bend Museum. Contact us if you would like to visit one of our Olympus at Waterside Estates homes.  Our leasing team will show you firsthand everything our Richmond apartments offer.
