Paulette's in Leslieville - any info?

I saw this storefront in Leslieville on the weekend, right next to Mercury. Looks promising. Does anyone have an inside scoop on what it's going to be like?

"Paulette's - Original Donuts and Chicken. Opening Summer 2012"

  1. yup - Just went to Delica Kitchen (Yonge & St.Clair) for lunch and they seem to be advertising it as an offshoot! yum!

      1. re: coronah

        All I wish is that the chicken will taste like Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken in Memphis. Is that asking too much?

      2. I just walked by here and saw a sign indicating that they're opening on Monday. I'm very curious to see how this place turns out -- particularly the doughnuts, since we really do have a dearth of great doughnut shops in the city.

          Had a sampling of two kinds at The Stop's Night Market last week - thought they were pretty good. They lean toward cakey donut, but they're not toooo cakey. I liked both flavours; garam masala and maple cinnamon. Would bother (moreso than before) to check 'em out based on that sampling.

            I am more keen to try out their frid chicken. Stockyards is too far away and their fried chicken doesn't travel well.

            1. re: jlunar

              I agree based on my sampling of their donut holes at the same event. Curious about their other donuts.

            2. re: Michael N

              I knew that they were opening in June, I just wasn't sure of the date. So it's tomorrow for sure? I cannot wait for this place to open. If, in fact it is opening tomorrow, I am so there!!

            3. I'm keeping an eye, and following them on twitter. Very excited for this place to open. Should be opening this week!

                    Thank you so much! I'm going to start following immediately.

              1. Just drove by - it's open (and packed).

                    Wanted to go so badly, but I couldn't make it. If they're open next Monday (holiday Monday), I'm going for sure!

                    1. re: petek

                      i might go today but, to be honest, not sure what i can check out. at $2.75/doughnut, i can't really get a good sample of what they do.

                      i do want to try their chicken and see how its stacks next to Buster Rhinos or Stockyards
