So. I used to think I didn't like donuts, except for Krispy Kreme and maybe the occasional Dunkin' Munchies. Used to being the operative phrase, because good donuts are good. (Okay let's be can one not like some fried sugar and dough?)

We arrived just five minutes before closing (a.k.a. too late for the specials but it's-a-OK because there's a good reason the originals are the originals) and boy was I happy we made it in time! Apparently this is a place-to-go for those stopping by Philly. I wonder if they have some cider donuts now? 'Tis the season after all.


The Breakdown


[okay, I mean donuts]

Vanilla Spice ✰✰✰: To be honest I don't quite remember which of the two I got as I tried a bite of my friend's, but I do remember they were both yummy!

Cinnamon Brown Sugar ✰✰✰: ^ above. Can't decide? Try both!


Overall? ✰✰✰ and would certainly return

To Try Next? A special

Good Study/Work Space? Probably not

Wi-Fi? Not sure

Bathroom? Don't think so

Loyalty Card? Not that I'm aware
