Glaze Donuts is a new from scratch doughnut shop featuring classic glazed & modern gourmet doughnuts crafted from all real ingredients, no fillers, preservatives or chemically created flavors. Every one of their doughnuts whether its the classic glazed or indulgent artisan creations (like Maple Bacon or Red Velvet) – offer high quality ingredients like Belgian chocolate and more.
Owner Jule Hazou created Glaze after years of frustration from the substandard doughnuts from the “bigger chains”. Clearly Northern NJ residents agree, with a Ridgewood location opening a short 7 months after the first in New Milford. When pressed if Rockland County was in his sights, Hazou replied “We are always looking for welcoming communities to enjoy our product”.
We tried a few of the most interesting looking items they had available during our visit – there is no schedule at Glaze, they make batches of the doughnuts multiple times a day – what you see is what they have (and appartently they go fast!). The Cannoli doughnut was certainly one of the highlights… it’s a yeast doughnut filled with cannoli cream and topped with cannoli cream, chunks of cannoli cookie and powdered sugar.
If doughnuts aren’t your thing, they also make crepes, made to order beignets and sell an array of other bakery items like muffins, croissants, etc. And it wouldn’t be a donut shop without the requisite cup o’ joe to pair with your treats. Hazou is concerned about quality here as well, making sure all the coffee beans and tea leaves he uses are fair-trade and organic. Let’s just say our Iced Milky Way Latte was delish!
Glaze is open 7 days a week in both Ridgewood and New Milford. You can follow them on Facebook or visit their website at http://glazeartisan.com
