Never did I think fancy donuts could be a thing and oh so good... but Astro's takes the gold for this!


They have a great selection of donuts from very interesting bacon glaze to the typical glazed donuts.  I like how they're so instagram worthy for amazing photos.


All super delicious and would totally continue to order from them!


I've tried this place out twice now and have had pretty good experiences both times. We ordered the Salted Almond Brittle donut, Creme Brulee donut, and Maple Bacon donut, as well as the fried chicken (on an old bay donut -- I think we would've preferred the unseasoned donut instead though). Of all of these, my favorite was the Salted Almond Brittle since I thought it boasted the best balance of sweetness. The Creme Brulee is also really interesting; I do wish the layer of sugar were a little thinner though.


Some of their donuts are always available, and another handful rotate in and out. We saw a donut with fruit loops, a donut based on black forest cake, and apricot lavender. Try out their seasonal flavors; you'll be surprised with the different tastes.


Oh baby! The flavors of these doughnuts and the quality of the dough are out of this world! I really loved the Creme Brulee doughnut, which is a staple on their menu and one of their most popular items. The Meyer Lemon Pie is also a standout, as was the Smoked Almond Brittle doughnut. Both of those are seasonal flavors, so keep an eye out for what they come out with next. In addition to doughnuts, they've got juicy fried chicken with a great crisp, biscuits and more... including a doughnut fried chicken sandwich, combining the best of both worlds!
