Decent, three-star donuts. I had the porcupine recommended to me, and it was pretty ok. Old fashioned was a bit too dense and impenetrable for my tastes, while the strawberry and cream cheese pie pocket was unique and just barely making it over the horizon to tasty.
Can you feel my overly qualified meh-ness about this place? It’s likely because of the fritter that I had. Disappointing barely covers it. Flat, dense, and doughy. It was the opposite of fritter nirvana. On the weakness of that along, this three-star review becomes two.
And jumps back up to three for having protein options! Sausages and cheese, stuffed into fried dough, and an honest-to-goodness sausage and pepper jack cheese kolache as well. Finally, kolaches at the south end of the valley? Did I feel like I’d eaten a lead brick after finishing mine? Oh, you bet I did. Still, I love a donut place that’ll offer me some protein to stop me from buzzing off into the ionosphere on a sugar high, so well done.
If you’re looking for fritters or buttermilk-laden options and are closer to downtown, Fresh Donut and Deli and Banbury are still your best bets. Need a donut fix on the south end of the valley? Daylight is not only a highly decent choice, but just about your only one.
