Carpe Donut: Seize the Morning With Fresh, Organic Donuts

November 18, 2014 12:17 pm

Doughnuts will never be considered a health food, but Carpe Donut proves that they can be made with fresh, organic ingredients and still taste just as delicious (and decadent). This family-owned bakery specializes in hot, cakey doughnuts made using only organic ingredients and baked from scratch every morning. There’s absolutely no trans-fats or shortening used in any of the doughnuts, and they’re not made with any harmful preservatives or artificial ingredients.

Carpe Donut’s shop is fairly tucked away in an industrial park, but it’s well worth the hunt. Once you arrive, the interior is very small and hosts just a few small tables, a cash register, and the mouthwatering scent of apple cider donuts baking fresh in the oven. Pair your donuts with some of Carpe Donut’s organic coffee, Italian hot chocolate, or mulled hot cider for a breakfast that you won’t soon forget.

In addition to its storefront, Carpe Donut caters weddings and other functions.

Ace Biscuit and Barbecue: Southern-Style Biscuits

November 11, 2014 11:50 am

Ace Biscuit and Barbecue offers a hearty taste of the South in the heart of Charlottesville. This traditional Southern biscuit house is most well known for its light, fluffy breakfast biscuit sandwiches and its chicken and waffles, but those aren’t the only things that it offers. The restaurant’s hip, stylish interior is said to complement its menu well, from the open ceiling and metal pipes to the ever-changing chalkboard menu and comfortable wooden tables.

Picky eaters might love Ace’s build-your-own breakfast biscuit options, which enable you to customize your biscuit from a wide range of toppings. Guests can also order fried chicken and classic Southern sides for lunch or dinner, and although the restaurant’s dining room is small, no one seems to mind creating a makeshift eating area in a sunny spot outside.
