I saw this on TripAdvisor before going to Charleston and could not wait to try it. Glazed did not disappoint. The doughnuts were excellent (I had the Raspberry Icing and a Cinnamon Twist, a friend had the Orange Ginger Chocolate). Everything was so good and tasted so fresh. I also had a latte which was one of the best I've... More

Nice place to go for breakfast and enjoy a freshly prepared donut with a nice coffee, we tried a couple.

I'm admittedly a donut snob but this place did not disappoint! We had the peppermint bark donut, coconut roll, spiced apple cider donut, and a black and white donut. We also had a latte and a cappuccino. Such a delicious breakfast!

The bacon apple fritters were my favorite and the coconut cream cheese cinnamon buns were my husband's favorite but we loved all that we tried!

I come from Hamilton, Ontario, the birthplace of Tim Horton doughnuts, and probably the city with the most doughnut shops per capita in North America. So, I know my doughnuts. These are cool. Interesting flavours, both cake and regular types that are both delicious. If you need to get your doughnut on, this is a fun change.

Web search indicated a local graduate of the Culinary Institute of Charleston is their Pastry Chef developing gourmet doughnuts with everything home-made including the dough. Very tasty doughnuts but selection is weak and although you may see one of the photos on their website will make your mouth water the sad part is you are NOT guaranteed any one of... More

When you come from upstate NY you find warm, freshly made, melt-in-your-mouth, apple cider donuts at almost every good apple orchard in the fall. There is nothing like them. After searching the Charleston area for anything close, a coworker recommended the Glazed Gourmet. We ordered 1/2 dozen to pick up Saturday morning. They are very pricey, but worth it. We... More

We picked up some of these doughnuts to go, and just in the nick of time (they were closing in 5 minutes!). They had very few left, so we got an apple butter filled, sugared twist and a raspberry. The doughnuts were tasty, but I have to say I have had better (Peace, love and little donuts in Pittsburgh, PA... More

We tried 3 different donuts. Each one of them were great. The shop is very neat and they had a variety of things to choose from.

We tried the maple and bacon doughnut which I had had before, and it was good. Surprisingly the better doughnut was the cranberry orange. It had a lot of flavor but wasn't overly sweet. The best thing we had by far was the apple fritter. It was so good, and definitely big enough to share! Doughnuts are a little pricey.

Thank Heather B
