 "At Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts, which opened in October, owners Allison Smith and Mark Remi have tapped into what she calls “the upper King Street vibe.” The shop is located at 481 King about midway between Calhoun and Spring streets.

"Starting about 3 a.m. six days a week, Smith and her mother, Mary Smith, make doughnuts at the shop, a glow of light and activity on a main drag that is otherwise shutting down for the night. Allison Smith, a Culinary Institute of Charleston graduate, is the one who dreams up doughnuts for the shop. (Remi, who works full-time as a computer engineer, takes care of the business side.) She comes up with a new flavor profile every week and has reached about 40 different ones. Ten of those are offered every day, at prices ranging from $1.50 to $3 each. Some are cake, some are yeast; all are made from scratch. Such artisanal ingredients as Nueske’s bacon figure into the mix."
