They may not have all the crazy flavors or creativity that other shops have but, what they lack in originality they make up for in execution. The apple fritter, which everyone seems to rave about, is textbook perfect with its crisp, crunchy exterior and soft, chewy interior dotted with sweet chunks of apple. They have two sizes — a small size perfect for most individuals and a large size that can be split amongst friends or family.

They have several flavors of croissant donuts like blueberry crumble and maple bacon. I opted for a simple chocolate cronut. Cutting into it reveals a thing of beauty — an airy interior with layers upon layers of separated pastry. The semi sweet chocolate icing complimented it all, creating a treat perfect for those wanting a restrained level of sweetness.

The place is owned by a cute older Asian couple. From what I gathered, the woman spent many years perfecting her craft at other donut shops before finally opening up her own store. With their moderate pricing and excellent quality there shouldn’t be any reason for people in the area to patronize chain donut shops.
