The folks at Sugar Shack Donuts and Coffee in historic Cocoa Village make their products the right way. Donuts are hand rolled and hand cut in small batches throughout the day, guaranteeing everything in the case is fresh whether its 7 am or 7 o’clock at night.

The location at 307 Delannoy Avenue opened in 2015 and is part of a small gourmet donut chain that got its start in Virginia just a few years ago. In 2014, USA Today included Sugar Shack on its list of the top ten best donut makers in the U.S. An additional Florida location in nearby Melbourne is in the works.

Because each donut is handmade, each one is unique. There’s no automation system here like the boring chains down the street. This attention to quality allows for the donuts to be large and fluffy. You never feel like you’re getting cheated with a donut from the Sugar Shack.
