This is the Lakeview location. I hear everyone refer to this place just as District Donuts, but I guess technically the name of the place is District Donuts.Sliders.Brews. That’s a better name since they’re about so much more than donuts. But the donuts are special. At least the one I had was! More on that later. The picture of them above is this weeks lineup. They told me the Glazed, Cinnamon Sugar, Chocolate Glazed, Cinnamon Roll and Brown Butter Drop are standard. They’re always available. The other flavors change weekly, on Saturday.
The place is beautiful. I love the décor and the way it’s laid out. For dinner my dining partner and I decided on the Pick any Three. Mix and match any three sliders. I also decided on the White Chocolate Strawberry Champagne donut for dessert. One of the best decisions I ever made in my life.
Between the two of us we tried the Cheeseburger, Chicken, Pork Belly and Roast Beef sliders. All four were delicious. I like the fact they use thigh meat for the chicken sliders. Much juicier and more flavorful than chicken breast.
Now, the donut. Wow. Best donut I ever had. First of all, the donuts are huge. If you told me three sliders and one donut would have a pig like me stuffed, I would have called you crazy. I left stuffed.
The texture of this donut is hard to describe. Like somewhere between your traditional donut and cake. And I’m not sure what kind of icing it was it, but it was fantastic. As was the filling. Only thing could have made it better was if they had put a fully ripe chocolate dipped strawberry on the top.
Great place. I highly recommend it!
