Coffee an' donuts--Westport
always been a tremendous fan of this small, strip-mall coffee shop, which serves the best cake donuts around. My devotion is such that I'm more than willing to drive the 90 minutes or so from Brooklyn to savor their heavenly powdered sugar, cinnammon, and plain varieties. Went up this weekend (after not having been in about 8 months or so) and was surprised that the quality was a bit off. The plain donuts were, just that, plain. Powdered sugar, which still had its distinctive cruch (one of the signatures of Coffee An's donuts in the first place), was a bit bland. Chocolate tasted stale (a first in a store which regularly makes new batches every hour or so).
Wondering if anyone else has noticed a slight drop-off in quality. Hoping it's just a momentary blip.
I live in Westport less than a mile from Coffee An'. Needless to say I have had to learn to go there only for special treats. I happened to read your post a few days before one of those long awaited treats was due. I agree with you that the quality is slightly off or was at that time. I don't know if I would have realized it if I hadn't seen your post first. I will have to force myself to try again soon and see what I think. I will keep you informed.
