District Doughnut
749 8th Street, SE

From a press release:

“District Doughnut announced today the official opening of their first storefront location on Barracks Row, scheduled for Friday, September 12. The specialty doughnut shop is located at 749 8th St SE, across the street from the iconic Marine Barracks of Washington.

Executive pastry chef and co-founder Christine Schaefer, a graduate of the Pennsylvania Culinary Institute’s Le Cordon Bleu Program, leads District Doughnut’s culinary innovation. Schaefer designs her creations from scratch, drawing inspiration from both American and international desserts including Key Lime Pie and Salted Dulce de Leche.

District Doughnut will debut serving a rotating selection of doughnut varieties along with small-batch coffee blends from Compass Coffee. Founded by DC-area natives Michael Haft and Harrison Suarez, both former Marine Corps officers, Compass Coffee imports beans from around the world and roasts them onsite in their new cafe and roastery in DC’s Shaw neighborhood.

District Doughnut will open Friday, September 12, through Sunday, September 14, from 8AM until selling out. Saturday and Sunday will feature grand opening festivities including music, games, and more.

For the remainder of September, the shop will be open Wednesday through Sunday, serving a select variety of doughnuts, coffee, and other beverages.”
