Revolution Doughnuts

We hold this truth to be self-evident: There are many ways to get creative when it comes to the pastry with a hole in the middle. Sugared, glazed, chocolate glazed & jelly-filled are flavors for the unimaginative. Those are for the big chain donut shops. Revolution Doughnuts will overthrow any notions you have of what you can top or fill a donut with.

Located right next to Ale Yeah! and Avellino’s on West College Avenue in Decatur (affectionately known as “Homer Simpson Plaza” since you can buy beer, pizza, and doughnuts there), Revolution Doughnuts feels like the hipster younger sibling of Dunkin Donuts. One part sustainable urban living coffee shop and one part Heaven, this is the kind of coffee shop where you can imagine patriots plotting rebellion in Colonial times.

Scratch that, if Samuel Adams and John Hancock had been eating these doughnuts, the Declaration of Independence would have read very differently.

Highlights

Maple Glazed with Bacon

Maple and Bacon Donut from Revolution Doughnuts

That’s right, the single best food in the history of food on a donut. One of Revoution’s cake donuts with a thick maple glaze, topped with real chunks of bacon.

Cinnamon Apple Fritter

Revolution Doughnuts Cinnamon Apple Fritter

This classic style donut tastes like something Granny could have whipped up if she was feeling particularly inspired and talented one day. Everything about it has a homemade vibe, from the sugar glaze to the crispy outside… it’s all just right.

Fresh Strawberry

Fresh Strawberry Donut from Revolution Doughnuts

What’s better than a strawberry flavored donut? How about a fresh strawberry donut! This donut takes a time machine back to simpler times, when food was real food.

 

Also, check out Revolution Donuts on Facebook. Why? Because they send out messages all day every day, sometimes saying that they’re getting ready to close and so doughnuts are half off!
