A Sweet Twist on Valentine's Day: Donuts Instead of Chocolates
This Valentine’s Day, skip the box of chocolates for your beloved and buy a box of donuts instead. Visit one of these three shops in Dutchess County where you can customize donuts to satisfy your sweetheart’s sweet tooth.
Glazed Over Donuts – Beacon
If you are a donut fanatic- this place is a must stop in Beacon. Owners opened early last year, and ever since then their lines have been flooding in and out the door. Stop by the shop to make your own donuts on their mega-menu. You can choose from a variety of glazes, toppings and drizzles on their fresh donuts. Be sure to try their Donut of the Day (#DOTD).
Try this: Maple Glaze, Bacon, Maple Syrup Drizzle Donut
Tomi’s Bites – Hopewell Junction
When donuts are as small as the miniature ones at Tomi’s- it’s okay to pop 2 or more in your mouth in one sitting. This brand new bakery and café offers a range of baked goods like bagels and breads, but the buzz is on about their mini donuts, which you can top with assorted glazes; toppings like chocolate chips, toasted coconut, and slivered almonds; and drizzles to create countless combinations.

Winner of Hudson Valley Magazine’s Best Cider Doughnuts of 2016, Barton Orchards is not only offering them for Valentine’s Day, but also allowing customers to add the toppings of their choice.
