We Have Doughnuts is the doughnut shop you didn’t know you needed. Tucked away in a corner of Pepper Place, We Have Doughnuts is the Steel City Pops of doughnut shops. The same family that brought you Savage’s Bakery has gifted Birmingham with another delicious gem, this time led by daughter Elizabeth Scott Wright. Made from scratch, these doughnuts start off with either a vanilla cake base or chocolate cake base. Brown Butter and Buttermilk are the classic “glazed” flavors, but you’d be remiss to miss out on their more seasonal flavors, such as Lemon Lavender. With coffee available (or kombucha if you’re feeling hip), you can pop over to their Instagram-worthy doughnut wall and take a break before heading over to the farmer’s market.
