The Morning After. Pretty in Pink. Stars & Stripes. Smurf. You may think these are famous movie titles, but think again. If you live in the Lake Travis area, you probably know these are some of the most popular donuts in town.
Thanks to The Donut Hole, Lake Travis area residents have access to the freshest donuts in the Hill Country, not to mention the largest selection of colorful circular treats.
The Donut Hole is now located in Lakeway (2422 Ranch Road 620 S), Steiner Ranch (2900 N Quinlan Park Rd) and at the “Y” in Oak Hill (6863 Hwy 290 W), and on any given morning, there is standing room only at all three locations.
According to The Donut Hole in Lakeway, the most popular donuts are The Morning After, Pretty in Pink, Stars & Stripes, Old Fashioned Glazed, White Sprinkled and Glazed Twist. And the ones with sprinkles aren’t just for the kiddos. Lake Travis adults seem to like very small pieces of confectionery too.
Everyone would agree that The Donut Hole boasts an incredible selection of donuts ranging from the most colorful to the most traditional to the most amazing. And by most amazing, that would mean the maple glazed donut with bacon sprinkles. That’s right, B-A-C-O-N.
In addition to delicious donuts—including the Giant Donut, perfect for any celebration that calls for a doughy delight—you can enjoy fresh kolaches, freshly brewed coffee, breakfast sandwiches and more. They use only fresh, never frozen ingredients and prepare all items every morning from scratch. And if you’ve ever shown up early in the morning and grabbed a warm glazed donut and a cup of freshly brewed Texas Pecan, you know how wonderful that hand-made love tastes.
An interesting little factoid—50% of The Donut Hole’s business is from their kolaches. So if you haven’t tried one yet, you’re missing out. They offer a wide variety of kolaches on a daily basis including sausage & cheese, jalapeno sausage & cheese, ham and cheese, spinach artichoke and BBQ beef.
In addition to the fabulous baked goodies, The Donut Hole really embraces its community, which is obvious as soon as you walk in the door. The Lakeway location features fun artwork and walls dedicated to the Lake Travis community. From hand-drawn pictures of donuts to Thank You notes from various non-profits and organizations to photos from a field trip to The Donut Hole, the local appreciation adds to the great vibe of the shop.
You aren’t just treating yourself to a great donut, you’re supporting a terrific local business that gives back. It’s the icing on the cake…er, I mean…donut.
