“Need Another Level to Rank This!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

There are no words that could describe how good my donuts were. These are the donuts others aspire to be. My maple bacon donut was out of this world! Not too sweet, lots of maple flavor and bacon that full of flavor and just the right saltiness. My friend ordered an apple fritter and the server called it a monster. When we opened the box we saw why. It was HUGE! It was full of cinnamony, gooey, goodness and loaded with apples. The coffee was Zeke's from Baltimore and available cold brewed if you like. I think this will be a regular stop when we pass through Richmond in the future! Oh, and unlike most other bakeries in town this one is open on Monday.

“Great donuts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

I've tried over 10 different donuts here, all amazing. With the exception of a hot, fresh, krispy kreme donut, nothing can beat these. Very creative and interesting flavors they come up with. Would recommend to everyone.

Great coffee and amazing donuts! We had the huge cinnamon roll and the flavorful blueberry. Yummy! Worth the trip.

“WATCH WHERE YOU PARK”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Decided to drive down to the Sugar Shack to enjoy some donuts. The parking lot (which is very small) was full and it was pouring down rain. We found parking in the gravel lot next door and walked into the shop; walking right by an employee who saw right where we parked. We did NOT see the small black and white signs on the window that said do not park in the gravel lot. Within 3 or 4 minutes; literally; our car was towed and we had to pay $130.00 to get it back; even though we got outside before it was taken away. The employee could have very easily have told us not to park there. The manager says this happens at least 7 times a day. Really? Why not have better signage so that this doesn't happen every day! So, it cost us $132.00 for 2 donuts. The donuts were pretty much sold out; they only had 2 kinds left. What an awful experience. I will never go back.
