Cooks at The Pizza Box hand toss fresh dough into a base for each of their 70 different pie variations, and it's that kind of dedication to diverse dough disks that earned them silver in the HamptonRoads.com's 2012 Best of Hampton Roads. The topping combinations range from internationally inspired blends such as the France—with potato, rosemary, and goat cheese—to the Morocco, which has figs, falafel, chicken, and cucumber. They also make domestic-inspired pies like the California, a blend of squash, sundried tomato, and mozzarella the exact shade of white as the snow atop the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

In 1937, Vernon Rudolph founded Krispy Kreme in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with the first location on South Main Street in Old Salem. Seventy-seven years later, his secret doughnut recipe lives on within hundreds of Krispy Kreme locations, serving premium sweet treats across the globe.

The entire doughnut-making process, which customers can view up close and personal at many of Krispy Kreme?s outposts, begins with fresh ingredients and ends with the click of a fluorescent sign bearing the words, "Hot Doughnuts Now." From the original, mold-breaking glazed doughnut to newer doughnut varieties, such as Chocolate Iced with Kreme Filling, Glazed Raspberry Filled, and Glazed Chocolate Cake, each round dainty pairs with piping-hot coffee for a compact snack.
