Doughnuts, or donuts, as some like to say, rolled onto the breakfast scene in the mid 1800s and have become hugely popular around the world in many different variations. Some people like jelly filled donuts. Some people like glazed donuts. Some people like eating the donut hole. But almost everybody likes donuts…and Houston is no exception. Every Houstonian knows that you don’t have to travel very far to find a neighborhood Shipley’s. But if you are a real donut connoisseur and you need a gourmet to get your morning started right…you should give Hugs & Donuts a shot. Located at 1901 North Shepherd Dr in the Heights, Hugs & Donuts specializes in outrageous (and delicious) morning treats. The brainchild of award winning food truck operators Matt Opaleski and Jason Hill, Hugs & Donuts features peaches and cream, Oreo cookie crumble and maple bacon. What’s that you say…you are not so adventurous in the morning? No worries…they also have plain glazed for the adventure challenged. As for me…I went with the strawberry shortcake…and loved it.
