Went here for breakfast my last morning in Charleston. Got an Apple-Bacon fritter that was so good. They also have very unusual flavors. Coffee is also sold. If you are not counting calories, this is your place.

So Glazed sets the standard for donuts hands down. They are fresh made daily and come in a variety of tasty and interesting creations. This small shop is wildly popular with locals and visitors. A word of caution, go early as the popular flavors like the maple bacon sell out early.

These aren't doughnuts you buy a dozen at a time for the kids to wolf down, Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts are a treat. My husband and I each got a raspberry doughnut, then went to The Battery to enjoy the scenery and our treat. The doughnuts are soft and yummy, the glaze had lots of flavor. I can't honestly say they... More

Well worth standing in line for these amazing donuts. A little pricey but many flavors are available and they are so good. Fritters were very good too.

Even though our hotel offered free breakfast, we knew we had to try this spot. And we were not disappointed. The donuts were a tad expensive but well worth it. We tried the glazed, maple bacon and lemon. They were all wonderful - especially the maple bacon. Yum, yum, yum! Will certainly stop in again the next time I am... More

Stopped in the store to look for gluten free doughnuts, they had one flavor. However, there was a sign that said it contained flour, which is the opposite of gluten free. That was confusing. There were many different doughnuts to choose from, so if you are looking for old fashion doughnuts this seems to be a good place to look.

We happened upon this place while killing time waiting for our city tour. The donuts are great and the guy working behind the counter was very nice. They had all flavors of donuts. Hard to decide.

Went there for a quick breakfast and were impressed by the doughnuts. Chocolate glazed, maple bacon, and an old fashioned. Slightly expensive, but worth it.
