*NEW* Candy Jar Donut made with M&M’S, SNICKERS, and TWIX – $5.00
All the donuts use the same bland and forgettable donut as a base. They are stale and dry. Not even the candy could save this donut.
*NEW* Sriracha-glazed Donut – $5.00
In addition to the poor-quality donut, this doesn’t even taste like sriracha. We cannot recommend this.
*NEW* Chef’s Donut of the Day – $5.00
There were two Donuts of the Day when we visited. The first one up is this Lemon Blueberry Donut, topped with lemon zest and blueberries.
This donut was slightly better than the rest, but that’s not saying much. The balance of the cream and icing made it palatable.
There was also a Black Forest Donut, covered with a chocolate glaze, chocolate shavings, and cherries.
The cherry jelly is sickly sweet. The combination of the jelly and chocolate will send even the strongest sweet tooth running.
*NEW* The Donut Box: Pack of the 4 Daily Donuts – $16.00
*NEW* Crispy Chicken on a Sriracha-glazed Donut – $8.50
There’s no better way to put this: the sandwich is an abomination. The chicken is unpleasant, the donut is bad, and it’s as messy to eat as it looks. This is a disaster, do not order this.
Strawberry Smoothie – $5.00
The Strawberry Smoothie is delicious, creamy, and smooth—everything you want from a smoothie. The almond milk does make the consistency very thin and runny, but that’s a minor oversight. The donut hole sitting on top does become soggy quickly. However, dipped into the smoothie, the taste was an improvement from the donut hole by itself.
From Left Hand Brewing: “The coffee’s dark cherry flavors and spicy undertones weave into the rich milky sweet stout like a chocolate-covered espresso bean melting on your tongue. Bitter then sweet. Sweet then bitter. It’s bittersweet.”
Black and White Coffee Cocktail – $14.00
The Black and White Coffee Cocktail is by far our favorite from the offerings. The cocktail has Jim Beam bourbon whiskey and a vanilla liqueur mixed in with the iced coffee, and they definitely stand out while drinking. There’s a slight burning from the alcohol when drinking this cocktail. However, it takes nothing away from how delicious this drink is. The donut is solely made up for by the Chocolate Espresso Bean Crumbles, which have a very strong taste but really make the donut portion of this offering. Without the crumbles, the donut would be average.
