We know that the Hudson Valley is pretty well known when it comes to the food scene. Award winning chefs with several Food Network appearances (and wins), visits from the Barstool King himself, and continuous recognition for one of our local sandwich shops (yeah, looking at you Rossi's).

Now we can add donuts to the long list of must-try Hudson Valley foods, well, one specific  donut spot anyway.

Glazed Over Donuts, Beacon, Named One of the Best in the Country

It's another occasion of 'are you even a Hudson Valley'er if you haven't...' - and this time the end of that statement is 'tried donuts from Glazed Over in Beacon.

Admittedly, I only tried them for the very first time recently (see my creations below), because I knew it was going to be one of those situations where once I went in, I'd be there far too often.


I digress.

The unique offerings at Glazed Over in Beacon have now earned global recognition from Yelp, making the Top 100 US Donut Shops for 2023!

There's no better treat than a donut, served fresh and warm   from a friendly local shop. And this year, the country's stop donut makers are crafting the beloved comfort food in exciting new ways.

Yelp shared that the following are considered the 'donut trends' that fans are Yelping about this year:

  • outrageous toppings: flavors of the week, and even savory toppings seem to be fan favorites
  • classics: chioccolate or original glaze hits the spot sometimes too
  • more than just donuts: things like croissants, crullers, and cronuts
