Who doesn’t love doughnuts, especially when each warm bite is loaded with a groovy burst of flavor? Peace Love and Little Donuts, founded in Pittsburgh in a tiny 209-square-foot shop in 2008, has expanded its locations across the country. Lucky for local residents, one opened in Brentwood in 2020.
“Cheston [Williams] went on a business trip to Pittsburgh, and while in the Strip District, saw a sign for Maple Bacon Donuts,” says his wife and co-owner, Becky Williams. “He went into the shop, which happened to be the original Peace Love and Little Donuts, and he liked it so much, he took me to Pittsburgh to visit it. We weren’t looking to open a business, but we both liked it and thought it would be a great fit for Williamson County.”
Becky describes the shop, with its retro 70s décor, as vibrant and energizing. It’s a great place for delicious and shareable doughnut experiences.
“We make our cake doughnuts, which taste great plain as well as topped, fresh throughout the day,” she says. “All of our 65-plus doughnut flavors are decorated as customers order them.”
The most popular flavor is Maple Bacon, but Raspberry Lemonade, Salted Caramel Macchiato and Birthday Cake also are big hits. “Customers like the 70s musician-themed names of some of our doughnuts, such as Elvis, Snick Jagger, Almond Brothers, Heath Wind & Fire and Robert Brulee,” says Becky.
In this day and age, everyone needs a little love, a little peace, and of course, a little doughnut (or two). “We love being a part of the Brentwood and Williamson County community,” she says. “We enjoy meeting customers when they come in.”
