You are making me so happy
I don't know if you know this about me but I love doughnuts.
I'm not a sweets type of person and for the most part I don't ever have dessert, and candy is even more rare for me to consume. Yet when it comes to doughnuts I'm such a sucker for them. Now let me be clear. What Tim Hortons serves is not doughnuts. It's some sort of fast food abomination of something delicious.
|Glazed and lemon curd.|
If you've had a real doughnut you'll understand. And if you live in Winnipeg you know my plight of the lack of good doughnuts.
In my travels I always grab doughnuts. Seeking out what is considered the best in the city and usually I'm not disappointed. There's just something about a good doughnut that understands me.
I've had Yonni's Doughnuts in Victoria. Bogart's Doughnut Co. in Minneapolis. Glory Hole Doughnuts in Toronto. Voodoo Doughnut in Portland (far too many in two days). And Hazeldean Bakery in Edmonton. Yet when it comes to my hometown. There is no doughnut scene.
It looks like that is about to change.
Oh Doughnuts has started to serve their delicious concoctions at Parlour Coffee. No surprise I dragged Adrian there the first day they were available. We tried both kinds available - grapefruit curd and lavender glaze. They were tasty and exactly what I wanted. Now I'm stuck waiting for them to open a storefront. Here's to hoping it's soon. Until then I am going to dream of that lavender glaze... or just keep frequenting Parlour Coffee for doughnuts and coffee.
