Jelly Modern Doughnut - you have to try it
there is a new place on 8th street SW just north of 17th ave SW on the east side of the street; it is in the bottom of a building - i think a clothing store used to be there...
anyway, it is called Jelly Modern Doughnut and it is worth a visit
The space is modern and bright and the coffee was good but i'm not a coffee expert but i do know my baked goods and these doughnuts are delicious.
the secret is they are super fresh and chewy and tasty and the toppings are not too sweet!!!
i picked up a dozen for the office and we have been sampling all morning. so far i have tried the honey glaze - really light flavour
s'more - amazing - the marshmallows must be house made
coconut - creamy real coconut not the fake sweet filler
chocolate - rich and dark
and my new found obsession
the maple bacon - i am not going to attempt to describe it - just go try it
i'm looking forward to trying a pb&j next time i go - which might be tonight on the way home from work
(as an aside i just had "bites" of each type)
i swore off doughnuts years ago as you could only get the doughnut chain ridiculous flavour varieties but i am converted. step aside cupcakes, and move along macaroons - i am hooked on doughnuts. i won't be standing in line at manuel latreu anymore to a tarte to a party - everyone is getting doughnuts.
i don't know if they have a website and i'm not sure of the address but it is worth a drive down 8th street just north of 17th ave
oh, and one more thing, they are transfat and preservative free, use organic ingredients and local suppliers so you can feel even better about eating one
they are also relatively inexpensive - 12 for about $24 which i think is less expensive than a cupcake and they are a generous size
re: piano boy
I agree, I love Donut Mill. When I first moved here fellow Chow's recommended I go there and since that first trip the SO and I go there once a month for apple fritters!
Sadly, I don't see any real "classics" on the menu -and frying is still frying even if you use organic flour!!! (lol) but hey-its a treat, right? I'll go and check it out, but I agree it will probably only be a once and awhile thing. If their cinnamon buns are good they may get me though!
