I PASSED BY WHAT LOOKS LIKE A NEW DOUGHNUT SHOP AT MILL CREEK TOWN CENTER ON MONDAY CALLED FROST DOUGHNUTS. ANYONE HAVE AN EXPERIENCE HERE THEY WOULD LIKE TO SHARE?
PS-WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE DOUGHNUT MAKER?

    I've only been there a couple of times, but they happen to be quite good. The maple bacon bars seem to be the item that brings people in (they've been out by the time I got there both times) but they also do a whole bunch of other unconventional donut flavors, most of which I've quite enjoyed. (the Aztec Chocolate and Salted Caramel in particular were quite good.) They do tend to be rather expensive for donuts though, and selection can be a bit hit-or-miss (apparently for the most popular flavors you need to get there pretty early.) Check the website here for more info:

      Been meaning to get myself up there for a while now.
      Everything I hear about them is great!

        For my only visit, I got there in the early afternoon, which was too late to get any of their unique flavors, so got a berry-filled and a boston cream. Both were just a shade below my favorite donuts ever, which were at a gelato shop in a space in upper queen anne now occupied by the Flame burger-teria. In my mind, this is a huge compliment, and I'll go back at any opportunity.

        Several weeks ago someone published some suggestion that they would be opening a second store on the Eastside later this year.

          The bacon maple bar, black forest fritter and almond and cherry bismarck are not to be missed. Just about 100 yards of Frost, Top Pot is now inside the U Bookstore. So you have two great doughnut options side by side.

            My experience with these two places puts Frost firmly in the lead (though the only TP locations I've been to are in Seattle).

            Frost is a very nice Doughnut option on the Northside - I love the Salted Caramel one. I love how they have rotating flavors and you can see what they're making each morning.
