National Doughnut Day Is June 2: Here’s Where To Get One in Washington, D.C.

Although we didn’t need a holiday to allow us to eat our favorite treat, on June 2, we’ll all celebrate National Doughnut Day – which is always the first Friday in June – with a fresh, tasty doughnut.

Our city is chock-full of bakeries that are experts at crafting everything from a classic glazed doughnut to the craziest flavors, toppings and fillings that you can imagine, ready to satisfy even the hardest-to-please diners. Visit these bakeries offering doughnuts near your 1331 Maryland apartment on National Doughnut Day!

District Doughnut, located at 5 Market Square SW, Washington, D.C. which is a 10-minute walk from your 1331 Maryland apartment, takes no shortcuts in crafting the world’s most delicious gourmet doughnuts. It’s owned by founding pastry chef Christine, who believes we all deserve a better doughnut.

From the scratch-made vanilla bean yeast dough to each of their pastry creams, jams, glazes, and ganaches, Christine uses only the finest ingredients like Callebaut and Valrhona Chocolates, dulce de leche imported from Spain, Nutella, real fruits, milk, eggs and cream.

Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, located at 1308 G St NW, Washington, D.C. which is seven minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is a hip counter-serve offering imaginative doughnuts and creative renditions of fried chicken.

For founders and childhood friends Elliot Spaisman and Jeff Halpern, it all started as a love of hockey and a good old-fashioned fondness for American comfort food. The first native Washingtonians to play for the Washington Capitals, Halpern and Spaisman grew up playing the sport together in Montgomery County, Maryland, often meeting for a post-game doughnut off the ice.
