Any Home-made Old-Fashioned Donuts Made in CT???
We don't like the donuts at Dunkin Donuts or the donut chains. We are looking for the special kind of home-made or fried doughnuts that bakeries years ago made. Are there any out there?
Philips Diner in Woodbury. These are the old-fashioned cake type. They are wonderful. We especially like the chocolate glazed. Not too many varieties to choose from...all are excellent though.
While you are there, pick up a few small frozen chicken pot pies for dinner. Delish.
Lakeside Diner in Stamford, CT just off exit 34 on the Merritt Pkwy. (Coincidentally, there's a Dunkin Donuts across the streeet.)
A former employee of theirs now runs the Parkway Diner off exit 35 and makes the same type of doughnuts, but they're not as good as the ones at Lakeside.
Elmood Bakery in the Elmwood section of West Hartford (on New Britain Ave.) makes excellent doughnuts. They have about 10 kinds including cinnamon-sugar raised, old fashioned, boston cream, crullers, chocolate covered and jelly filled. They also have a bunch of other goodies in there too!
Also...in Vernon (not exactly sure about the location) there's a great place called Boston Bakery that has the BEST old school Boston Cream doughnuts ever!
