Glazed Over Donuts


Right smack dab in the middle of Main St. in Beacon, New York lies one of the trendiest, yummiest new hot spots. Glazed Over Donuts opened less than two weeks ago and has already scored social media attention with their Instagram worthy donuts (I posted mine, obviously). Owners, Lisa and Ron Tompkins, have brought this yummy addition to an already vibrant area with a concept that has not been done in any other surrounding towns. They were inspired by a similar type of food spot while vacationing and the rest is history. It seems like the art of customizing your own donuts is here to stay.

With the perfect family atmosphere and everyone's favorite sweet treat, Glazed Over Donuts has the perfect recipe (for success + the most delicious donuts you will ever eat). The hype was bigger than they initially anticipated, but I could definitely see why it was such a hit. I was kindly invited to come in this past Friday afternoon which I assumed would be a slower time, but I walked right into the buzzing shop and people just kept on coming in and out with boxes in hand. Move over NYC artisan bakeries, the Hudson Valley is on your level now.

Now the menu is truly magical. Should I do Nutella...no wait, caramel sounds good. That was my situation for approximately ten minutes of deciding what to order and I ended up with half a dozen of completely different combinations. The donuts, which have an amazing cake batter taste, come out hot and fresh and the action can literally be watched through the clear window into the kitchen where it all happens. They are a twist on the typical donut and customized in a three step process: glaze, toppings, and drizzles. My favorite toppings happened to be fruity pebbles and marshmallows, but everything that I ordered was spectacular. No ifs, ands, or buts about that. Now I love good old Dunkin' Donuts, but Glazed Over Donuts is nowhere near comparable. The taste and quality is simply out of this world. It looks like I will be heading to Beacon more frequently just to keep trying new combinations!
