About District Doughnut

We look forward to hearing from you! Please give us a call at 202-350-0799 or email us at info@districtdoughnut.com. We love doing weddings!

What We Do

District Doughnut is a team of chefs and entrepreneurs serving specialty doughnuts to our Nation’s Capital. We handcraft fresh doughnuts daily at our store, featuring classic and internationally-inspired flavors. Founded in and for the DC area, we strive to infuse our pastries with the city's classic history and vibrant creative spirit.

Why We Went Into Food

Throughout their friendship, our founders Juan Pablo and Greg spent many hours bonding over doughnuts. Upon meeting Chef Christine and tasting her pastry creations, they found both a kindred spirit and a master of her craft. In her Brown Butter doughnut recipe, they realized a delightful secret about which the rest of the world needed to know. Two years and thousands of doughnuts later, our team continues to share the District Doughnut experience with everyone in the Nation’s capital.

What Have We Learned 

We believe that building something excellent requires energy, and perseverance. At District Doughnut, we make each of our decisions, whether big or small, with a singular focus on quality.

What We Love

Doughnuts are a timeless favorite – especially in our great nation’s history! In rethinking this classic treat, we seek to bring people together through the shared experience of the most delicious product possible. Meeting fellow DCers from all walks of life and seeing them experience a District Doughnut for the first time inspires us in our pursuit of excellence. Our greatest satisfaction is in creating a delightful experience for each customer, whether we are in the kitchen or behind a desk!

What Is Next For Us 

We just opened our first store across from the iconic Marine Barracks on Barracks Row in Capitol Hill. Our journey has taken us all around the DC Metro Area beginning with a debut at the Metro Cooking Expo, a special feature at the Ritz Carlton, Tysons Corner, a weekly presence at Georgetown University’s student-owned coffee shop, and special deliveries to the CNN Situation Room. All of this was made possible through our membership at Union Kitchen.

    District Doughnut was fantastic!! Everyone at the reception absolutely loved that doughnuts were the dessert of choice. The creativity and thought that the staff at DD provide for each kind of doughnut are exceptional! We loved the experience and would highly recommend catering doughnuts for your wedding!

    District Doughnut saved us at the last minute!

    We had originally planned to use another vendor to provide donuts as our wedding dessert, but were having trouble finalizing our order with that vendor. We ended up contacting District Doughnuts as a last ditch effort about a week before our big day, and they pulled through with delicious flavors (we did the boxes of two mini doughnuts), speedy responses, and great service. Definitely try the pumpkin crème brulee donut if you can!

    We used District Doughnut for favors at our wedding on 7/14/18 in Arlington, VA. Will was excellent to work with and even arranged a tasting for us in store before we placed our order! The doughnuts were delivered on time the day of the wedding and our guests loved them! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their catering services to friends or family. I'm so glad we decided to make District Doughnuts a part of our special day!
