Christy's Donuts

1103 W. Gray Houston, TX 77019 | River Oaks | 713-524-4005

Location Description:

This family-run shop has been serving fresh donuts in Montrose folks for years. The service is quick and friendly, and the selection rivals that of any chain. Of course, kolaches are available. The heavy croissant and biscuit sandwiches (served hot out of the microwave) are still a popular breakfast item. The dining room is clean, though a little dingy - the building is older. But there's plenty of interesting stuff on the walls, like business awards for community involvement and customer photos.
