Shipley's glazed doughnuts are doughy and covered with the perfect thin layer of sugar glaze, making them an authentic alternative to those sugar-heavy air pockets made at other chains. Yes, Shipley is a chain -- one of the few good imports from Houston -- but the doughnuts are made in-house by people who love sprinkles, Bavarian cream and raspberry jam as much as we do. They also have more options than your standard mom-and-pop shop or that chain, but nothing is quite better than the simple glazed doughnut, especially right after dawn when they're still warm. And if you don't have a sweet tooth, go for the Big Earl kolache, named for former pro-footballer Earl Campbell. Fair warning though: Make sure you're really hungry.
