Okay, I try to eat healthy. Hell, I DO eat healthier than I have in the past. But now and I then I want something indulgent. Not a sugary cookie from the grocery store bakery, not a cheap milk chocolate candy bar or brownie. But a real bakery made cupcake piled high with some yummy homemade (well made) frosting, preferably a perfect combo. Now, there is such a bakery here but it caters to folks who obviously don’t work or work nearby because any time I am able to go by there they are closed. Guess the Vanilla Bean doesn’t need my business.
BUT there is a little place that started off small, that caters to the need for simple indulgence, that has late hours every day but Sunday, and you can even design your own treat if you like.
I know what you’re thinking. A doughnut is a doughnut is a doughnut. But nooooo…Krispy Kreme aside ( and they must step aside) this little gem of a doughnut shop is the bomb. They create uniquely special flavors that range from the typical-Blueberry Cheesecake-to the unusual-Maple Bacon-and will even custom create one from a variety of toppings.
Looks pretty awesome right. You might also be thinking that anyone can make a good dessert with the right frosting. While they do a bang up job with theirs, which is the perfect amount of sweet without being dental shame sugary, it is the actual doughnut itself which sets them apart from the other players. It is the best cake doughnut ever-always consistent- and never fails to please. They are moist, not greasy and go perfectly with the toppings.
Those? Ummmm I believe we have a Boston Creme, Cookies and Cream, Blueberry, Apple Pie and Chocolate chip. Not sure about the cut off one, but it was good too! 🙊So, when we have had our dinner across the street at Jimmy Hula’s or simply want to indulge, we look for these simple but gloriously glowing doors.
My favorite? The Elvis of course. Banana, Peanut Butter and Chocolate. Oh, and they sell coffee too. We just never stay around for it. We prefer to get a box full and take them home where we can be alone with them. 😉💕
Wanna’ know what having one is like?
Just ask this guy….yeah Boston Cream Pie in a doughnut. Who’da thunk it?
(He’s so stoked they will be opening a location in Atlanta soon.) 👏🏻
Did I mention they make a Maple Bacon also? Bacoooon…..
