Amazed by Glazed!
Glazed was a well welcomed surprise as we made our way around downtown Charleston one Saturday morning. Let me just say this is far better than your typically franchised donut shop. For starters it’s nestled in the heart of downtown on King Street. The added value you get from the location is that super cool historic vibe.
From the moment we walked in we immediately picked up on the quality and love that they put into their product. The seating isn’t plentiful, but I seriously doubt that’s on the top of your priority list when you are in search of the sweet tooth fix. I loved seeing “the racks, on racks, on racks” of doughnuts waiting to be placed behind the glass.
The staff was super friendly as we tried to decide what mouthwatering treats, we wanted to try that day. We ultimately decided upon the Pumpkin Crème Brulee, which is pumpkin pie custard filled donut topped with caramelized sugar. The Charleston which is a bourbon cream filled doughnut topped with a toffee glaze and homemade pralines. Last and not least the raspberry (yes that’s the name, raspberry).
Well I must say that despite its simple name our absolute favorite doughnut that day was the raspberry! If you can imagine that one doughnut personified everything that is raspberry goodness. The flavor of that doughnut was so on point you would think it was topped with fresh whole raspberries. We loved, loved, loved it! It was so delicious and moist we probably should have bought another. If you enjoy a sweeter more dessert like doughnut you would love the Charleston and/or the Pumpkin Crème Brulee.
