Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken Serves Creme Brulee Doughnuts Near RiverPoint

Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken specializes in scratch-made doughnuts that are delicious enough to impress experts, but approachable enough for the average foodie to enjoy. Case in point, the creme brulee doughnut. The Washington Post once dubbed it the “city’s best” doughnut, so don’t be surprised if it’s sold out when you show up!

To avoid that unfortunate scenario, come to Astro Doughnuts bright and early when all of its made-to-order doughnuts are still in stock. The permanent menu includes the creme brulee, PB&J, maple-bacon, and vanilla glazed doughnuts, but the bakers are always working on new seasonal treats. You might also see doughnut flavors such as red velvet, chocolate candy cane, and even Christmas cookie on the menu. To balance out all the sweets, the eatery also serves up crispy fried chicken in the form of combo meals and sandwiches. Order the Asteroid if you like fiery food! It features spicy fried chicken with jalapeno coleslaw, Comeback Sauce, lettuce, and pickles on a brioche bun. Please wear a face covering to come to Astro Doughnuts or order your meal online for delivery or takeout.
