About Sugar Shack 

Sugar Shack logoSugar Shack Donuts
Sugar Shack Donuts opened in June of 2013 in a small corner building in Richmond’s Carver community. Since then, local Sugar Shack owner Rob Krupicka has opened locations in Arlington and Alexandria and is working to debut the first DC location (any day now!) in the Shaw neighborhood.Each Sugar Shack uses products specific to their locality as much as possible. Coffee from ethical farms, teas from local shops, and fresh herbs and produce help each Sugar Shack stay tied in with the community even further. Most importantly though, donuts and coffee are made the right way, hand rolled and hand cut in small batches throughout the day.  Visit the Sugar Shack DC-Shaw facebook or twitter page for updates on the opening in Shaw.
