Roll Call After Dark Nosh of the Week: Curbside Cafe Chocolate Sprinkle Doughnut

 Roll Call After Dark Nosh of the Week: Curbside Cafe Chocolate Sprinkle Doughnut

Doughnuts from a place that made its bones on cupcakes? In the case of the chocolate-frosted, chocolate sprinkle fare at Curbside Cafe, the answer is yes.

Regardless of whether you are a “doughnut” person or a “donut” person, the brick-and-mortar baking HQ of the Curbside Cupcakes empire at 257 15th St. SE offers a delicious addition to our favored starch-heavy dessert ranks. There is no shortage of doughnut offerings in Washington these days, with the likes of Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken, GBD and District Doughnuts.

Curbside provides a no-fuss option, simply a nice yellow or chocolate cake doughnut  that lets the flavors fly. It’s baked, not fried, which is kind of surprising, considering how good it tastes, how well it holds together (minimum crumbliness) and how satisfying it is. Its frosting complements, rather than dominates. Its sprinkles top don’t distract. Its cakeiness anchors it all splendidly. Doughnuts: They’re not just for breakfast anymore.
