Glazed Opens Soon & Offers Gourmet Doughnuts 24 Hours a Day

You may think we have enough doughnuts in Houston. Christy's, BB Donuts and Shipley Do-Nuts provide us with simple glazed yeast doughnuts and other cake options; Peña's Donut Heaven creates wild and crazy treats topped with everything from Froot Loops to Reese's Pieces; and now we have a mobile doughnut truck, Doughmaker Doughnuts, serving up trendy baked and fried morning pastries. But, out of all the places you can grab fried rings of dough, none of them are open 24 hours a day. That's where Glazed comes into play.

Owner Ose Ohen decided to separate himself from the rest of the doughnut-scene in Houston by offering crazy flavor combinations and an ever-changing lineup of treats. Oh, and he decided to remain open all day. To him, doughnuts are not reserved for your morning commute.

"What we are doing is gourmet specialty doughnuts 24 hours a day, made in house by scratch directly by our pastry chef and our chef in the kitchen," Ohen says. "We are going to have things such as a Red Velvet Cake doughnut, a triple chocolate, a nutlava, which is kind of like a baklava that you can find at a Mediterranean restaurant; we are going to have crème brulee, we're going to have a Sangria-infused [doughnut]. We are doing all of these different types of combinations in a doughnut for the cake doughnuts and also the yeast-based doughnuts. We are also offering an assortment of gluten-free and vegan doughnuts, as well."
