Seasonal donuts made with freshly picked flowers, fruit, or herbs, such as honeysuckle, juneberries, and tulsi; drip coffee; local grass-fed milk
Not only do their donuts deliver on flavor and provenance of ingredients, but Hole Doughnuts pays attention to all steps in the food chain, including paying a living wage, giving their non-GMO rice bran oil to a biofuel company in their area, and composting all of their coffee grounds. They’ve chosen not to offer straws or plastic utensils, and they pay special attention to produce that wouldn’t otherwise sell.
Step into Hole Doughnuts for pure and modest joy. They are the donut shop of your southern whistle stop imaginings. The donuts are made with organic, stoneground, local flour, and they only offer four flavors at any given time. Don’t miss their sesame, almond, cinnamon version, which looks savory, but delivers the goods to any well-worn sweet tooth.
