Donut Excursion: Miss Donuts

Do-Ho travels to Falls Church, Virginia to visit Miss Donuts

Don't judge a book by its cover. Inside this unassuming storefront, a slew of local Virginians indulge in hearty, handmade donuts that are the antithesis of Krispy Kreme cutouts. The rough-hewn cake donuts with haphazardly placed-icing are dropped into a brown paper bag and handed over by Maritza, below, from El Salvador, and her hard-working colleagues.

Come for the donuts (apple crisp cake and sour cream cake are highlights), and stay for the people watching! Miss Donuts hosts a melting pot of clientele--every color and race seemed to be represented during Do-Ho's short Sunday morning visit, and conversation in Spanish is about as prevalent as English. Muy interesante!
