    Unfortunately we had $200 worth in gift cards and the owner abruptly closed the restaurant. When we requested a refund he basically said he was going to open up another restaurant and we'd have to wait for the new restaurant to open. Given that it will be a different style of restaurant and the opening date is unknown I feel the owner should have either refunded the money or given us more notice of the closing so we could have used our gift cards.

    Absolutely loved this place!

    Love their sandwiches and honestly the best fries I have ever tasted. Crispy and salted to perfection.

    Great lattes and coffee, friendly atmosphere, and a wide selection of donuts and other breakfast/lunch items. Definitely going to go there again.

    Not sure how they call them apple fritters, they are large but there were no apples. Like what!!!!!

      Well that shouldn’t happen. Sorry about that. Tell us this happened next time you are in the store and we can make it up to you.

    This place went from 5 stars to 1. The five: I was pleasantly surprised when my friends greeted me with a box of vegan donuts from their neighborhood. They were delicious! I had been waiting to try them again and finally picked a day I could get to Alexandria again.

    The one: I checked their site overnight to see if I could have a preview of what donuts would be available that morning. I was excited to see that I could pick a time for pickup and order right then. That afternoon, right around my

      We are sorry this happened to you. This isn’t normal. You are right to be frustrated. We are happy to make this up to you. Send us an email to Info@elizabethscounter.com and we can set you up with some comped replacement donuts.

    I have been visiting Elizabeth’s Counter since late 2020. I fell in love immediately with the customer service and menu options. So why am I leaving a 2 star review? It seems within the last 6 months things, possibly management, have changed. Hours are very strange (offer lunch options but stop serving food at 1:45pm. Even though closing is at 2pm), donut options have declined (flavor options and quality. Had the driest apple fritter to date a week ago. Let’s not mention the sugar overload in so – show

      Thank you for sharing this feedback. We are not sure why you had a bad experience with the fritter. We are going to look into that. We are sorry about that. Our hours are 7am to 2 pm because we had so few orders after 2 pm that we were spending more on staff than we were making and that was tough for our business model. We try to make sure our staff is paid well but that does impact things. We’d love to be open more, but we need to see more vegan food lovers coming to the spot before we can try – show

    Rude customer service

      Thank you for your comments. We have had a conversation with our staff about this. We always strive to provide great service, but we are human and sometimes have bad days like everyone.

    Great coffee and donuts! Clean and neat location. Lots of options to please any palette.

    This review is strictly about the customer service, not the food, at Elizabeth’s Counter. I stopped in this morning to get a decaf chai latte, which I have gotten from there before, and is still on the online order menu as I write this review.

    When ordering this drink there today, the staff told me that they do not have decaf chai, and that the chai they have is pre-mixed. I said unfortunately I cannot have that as I am pregnant and can’t have caffeine and proceeded to leave. As I was leaving t

    Great vegan spot. Tried the vanilla sprinkle donut today. Yummy.

    Nice place to get a donut and coffee in the morning

    My family and I have been customers here since it was sugar shack. My kids love the donuts and fries. We used to come here all the time but lately whenever we come here they never have any donuts in stock. We tried again today and it will be our last time ever coming here again. We were having a bit of a rough day so decided to get some donuts and food. They were out of all donuts so we decided to just order from the menu. We stood in front of the two workers looking at the menu for a while and – show

    I was able to try their food once when the hours of operations were normal; however, lately I can never get to the shop in enough time. They are always closed and the hours of operations are not conducive for anyone that is working. Doesn’t seem very customer friendly.

    Some considerations need to be made about this.

      Thanks for your comments about our hours. We are open 7 am to 2pm for breakfast and lunch. I’m sorry those hours don’t work for you. We will certainly keep your thoughts in mind as we evaluate the business. Please consider trying us on the weekend if you can. We hope to see you soon.

    Great breakfast burritos!

    Very pleasant.

    I have been a customer of theirs ever since it was named a Sugar Shack, they have the best donuts! What makes me upset is that they are always out of stock.. like no matter what time of the day.. the last few times we went they were out of staple donuts such as glazed, cinnamon, sprinkled, etc.. I truly don’t get it! We drove all the way from DC just for donuts.. I should have known better!

    Great vegan donuts! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good donut shop around Alexandria!

    Fried chick’s sandwich (vegan) is delicious!
