Awesome, unique flavors like currant ginger, Aztec (chocolate, cinnamon, and pepitas with a hint of chili pepper,) and dulce de leche! Loved, loved, loved.

We showed 2:50 and the wouldn't let us in because they close at 3. Never got to try the donuts but they could be good if the let you in.

Some creative and interesting flavor to satisfy the adventerious and great basic flavors that make the classics worth eating. Take them to go and visit another local cafe for coffee!

Very good cake donuts worth a pit stop when in the Richmond area. Nice staff and good coffee too. The cake of the donut had a great texture and wonderful flavor.The toppings complemented the donut and were not just sugar tasting colorful toppings but added taste and texture. A very good donut.

Stayed in an airbnb apt. in Carytown, and behind us was Dixie Donuts. As others have mentioned, they have cake donuts, not yeast donuts. We tried a number of them, and they were all good. My favorite was the spicy chocolate....It had a hint of chipotle in the icing, and pepitas on top. Yum!

A nice diversion while in Garytown. A quaint donut shop in what appears to have been perhaps a gas station at one time. The donuts are good quality and always fresh. We found several unusual varieties also, egg nog and capacino taramisu. Nephew's favorite is any with plentiful sprinkles though.

Richmond's "donut scene" has most certainly been expanding in recent years and Dixie Donuts is certainly one of my and my family's favorites. They make "cake" donuts (which are different from yeast donuts if you know your donut demography) and are always fresh, interesting, diverse, and delicious! Definitely worth the trip!
