Charlotte Donut Tour

Charlotte Donut Tour

We went on a Donut Tour of Charlotte, and this is your official guide! Because when I’m on a girl’s weekend or just have a free Saturday morning, the best way to celebrate is by rolling out of bed in your jammies and picking up donuts and coffee. When I’m in a new city, the first thing I check is “Where is the coffee for tomorrow? Also…donuts?” So I’ve cut out the work for you. Your welcs. So, here we goooooo:

Your Mom’s Donuts 11025 Monroe Rd, Matthews, NC 28105 Type: Yeast, with some fun and interesting flavor mixes. Coffee: Pure Intentions, with cappuccinos and mochas. Dreams. Timeframe: Get there early or you’ll definitely miss out. They sell out quick! Atmosphere: A cute large space with plenty of seating, but not super cozy. Insta-Worthy: 8 out of 10, the donuts are beautiful and their chalkboard menu is prime. Taste Score: 10 out of 10!! So good you guys, with that homemade freshness that you can’t find anywhere else. Yum. We tried: Orange Glaze with Coconut & Blueberry Basil with Orange & Concord Grape with Peanuts

Suarez Bakery 4245 Park Rd, Charlotte, NC 28209

Type: Cake & Yeast, minimum flavors Timeframe: 9:30am on a Saturday they had most everything left. Atmosphere: Small bakery with a fun window to watch them ice the cakes, but no seating. Insta-Worthy: 7 out of 10, the inside isn’t much, but the shopping center is super cute with lots of white walls and couch seating. Taste Score: 0 out of 10… ouch. Hate to say it, but I took one bite and it was dry with a strange aftertaste, so I tossed it. I'm sure the rest of their cakes and goodies are delicious though, so I'll have to go back and try. We tried: Plain Cake Donut

Duck Donuts 1710 Kenilworth Ave #220, Charlotte, NC 28203

Type: Yeast, with lots of icing and toppings to choose! You create your own varieties. Coffee: Hot & Iced, their own blend. Not my favorite. Timeframe: Because they’re made to order, they don’t run out. Which is a huge bonus! Atmosphere: Fun and touristy kind of vibe, but not much seating. Insta-Worthy: 9 out of 10, the donuts are colorful and fresh. Picture worthy, you know? Taste Score: 8 out of 10, fresh and warm and really good. Not quite the homemade quality as Your Mom’s Donuts, but a really good donut that hits the spot. We Tried: Vanilla Glaze with Sprinkle & Orange Glaze with Coconut ____________

Sugar Donuts 11914 Elm Ln, Charlotte, NC 28277

Type: Yeast, and all local ingredients. Timeframe: We stopped in around noon and they still had plenty! Atmosphere: Super cute, fresh, and lots of seating to stop in and eat. Insta-Worthy: 10 out of 10! Because not only are the donuts cute, so is the whole store. Taste Score: 8 out of 10, large and yummy and super superrrr sweet. We Tried: Maple Bacon & Matcha Green Tea There you have it! Not going to lie when I say this was one of the most fun mornings. In fact, it might even be in the best interest of all parties involved if you just take it upon yourself to stop at all the stores, make it a morning tour, and try each donut out for yourself :)

Happy Sugar Rushhhhhh!
