Beignets are New Orleans’ signature fried dough, but this cheerful eatery makes a grand argument for regular donuts. Actually, regular is not the right word. Here are donuts of every imaginable (and unimaginable) variety, from relatively simple cinnamon-sugared or salted-caramel glazed puffies to such outlandish inventions as a sriracha donut, a Vietnamese iced coffee donut, and a variety of croquenuts (griddled donut sandwiches). A rotating selection from a repertoire of 200 flavors, each day’s roster is served utterly fresh. Walk to the back of the long storefront and you can watch the donuts slid into boiling oil and, beyond that, observe cream puffs filled and chocolate donuts iced.

The breakfast (pre 11am) menu also includes baked kolaches made with sweet dough, pork belly tacos, bacon biscuits, and cinnamon rolls. While donuts always are available, after 11am sliders come into play. These include the juiciest possible cheeseburgers, and fried chicken with peppery gravy. As for the brew part of the restaurant’s name, that refers not to beer, but to coffee: all the usual espresso variations, cold brew coffees, and a bizarre and rather fetching concoction called a Sproca-Cola. That’s cola, espresso, and chocolate milk!

District is a bustling operation humming with caffeinated good vibes. Seating is indoors at a long row of booths against the wall and at al fresco tables out front and on a pleasant back patio.

Note: There now are District Donuts locations in Baton Rouge, elsewhere in New Orleans, and in Las Vegas, Nevada. Details are available on the District Donuts website.
