Beyond Glaze Donuts
Yelp is awesome. I was really glad to see this place adequately nailed before I arrived.
And I say “nailed” as in “summed up” rather than “punished.” These are not bad donuts. They are, however, insanely sweet. This isn’t really a surprise, since every donut they serve is a plain raised glazed donut topped with an additional layer of frosting, glaze, or decoration. The result is sickeningly sweet in a way that not even the most inveterate dessert lover could enjoy.
The bacon reviews here are also right on the money: it has all the nuance of a splutter of Log Cabin syrup over a grocery store yeast donut. They’ve used the absolute lowest quality bacon you can imagine and barely browned it at all. I had so many pieces of flaccid, rubbery bacon on my donut that wished I hadn’t bothered. It did remind me of the apple maple bacon donut at Dynamo Donuts in San Francisco and how amazing their donuts are in general, though. That comparison is rarely going to come out on the side of the non-Dynamo pastry purveyor, but comes out particularly bad for this one.
Again, not bad donuts. Just boring, sugar-blasted, and absolutely undeserving of the prices.
