Country Style Donuts, Richmond, VA

Upon arriving in Richmond, we picked up our rental car and headed to the city. At one of the first intersections, we saw this donut shop and made a mental note of it. For that, the next morning we were rewarded with--hands down--the best donuts we had ever tasted. Specifically the one they call the Old Fashioned. It has an almost crisp texture on the outside and the inside is so heavenly in it's plain-ness that all you want is more!

The Old Fashioned are at the top of the box. Each morning during our visit, we went to Country Style. The first day we went, we stood in a long line, wondering if it was normally that crowded. Someone told us that they had just done a story about the shop that morning on the local news. Go figure.

The assortment is vast, and each day we bought a dozen donuts which, by the time the next morning rolled around, were somehow almost gone. They were a great treat to have on hand with relatives stopping in, pre-wedding. Everyone enjoyed them. All their varieties are very good- but for me, nothing compared to the Old Fashioned. The coffee was fantastic, by the way.

I am not responsible for this sad sight...and the eggs.

I'm not a huge donut fan, but we recently discovered a little gem in Ferndale, MI called The Apple Fritter. I stick to one kind of donut, the kind that is a yeast donut (not a cake style donut) that has been dipped in that sugary icing with chocolate frosting on top. Crispy on the outside, airy inside and not at all greasy.
