Feed Your Inner Hippie at Peace, Love and Little Donuts

Craving a sweet treat? From Ginger Sugar to Maple Bacon and beyond, Peace, Love and Little Donuts will flavor your palate with a psychedelic taste sensation. Located at 601 E. Southlake Boulevard in suite 100 (at the intersection of Southlake Boulevard and Byron Nelson Parkway), the groovy donut shop opened its doors in early June.

The sweet spot in town specializes in out-of-the-[donut]-box flavors that fall into three increasingly unique categories: Groovy, Far Out, and the most creative, Funkadelic. In addition to Cherry Cheesecake, Apple Pie or Samoa donuts, to name a few, diners will also find the perfect beverage pairings, including Dallas-based Novel Coffee Roasters coffee and the ever-popular Nitro Cold Brew on tap.

With tie-dye clad donut shop employees and hippie-inspired décor, Peace, Love and Little Donuts in Southlake is one of 26 locations in the Pittsburgh-founded franchise, and is the only location currently open in Texas. For Rod Moruss, the Southlake location’s managing partner, donuts truly have become a family affair.

“After my sister-in-law and her husband opened a franchise in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, my wife, her parents and I decided to open a location here. I’ve always wanted to own my own business, and after living in the area, I knew Southlake would be a great fit for a store,” stated Moruss, who is hands-on at his operation, often found greeting guests and offering complimentary donut samples.

Although most donut flavors can be found in each franchise location, one flavor is unique to Southlake: the Dragon Donut. Coated in vanilla frosting and topped with black, white and green sprinkles, the Southlake special is a tasty tribute to the Southlake Carroll Dragons.

In addition to dining in or grabbing a dozen to go, donut lovers can also request orders for special occasions, such as birthday celebrations, office parties and more. Peace, Love and Little Donuts can customize catering orders to best suit your sweet tooth and color scheme.
