A few weeks ago, my niece Beverly introduced me to a new doughnut place in Oakland called #Doughnut Dolly. She had her parents from Los Angeles in town and wanted to spoil them, her kids Daphne (5) and Zander (3) and me by taking us there for a special treat. I was thrilled to be spending the day with them.
I’m always up for a field trip especially when it involves a decadent doughnut. This place is great. It is bright, modern and upbeat, just the kind of place you want to spend your Sunday morning.
These doughnuts are not like any other doughnut that I have tasted. They have a variety of flavors and they can change from week to week. This time we could choose from their traditional filling called “Naughty Cream”, or a Mystery Jam (today’s was a mixed berry), or a Bourbon Cream, or a Dark Chocolate variety. You can’t go wrong with any of the above. You could also chose to have a sugar coating, a glazed coating, a chocolate frosting, or a lemon and pistachio glaze on your doughnut. OMG. These flavors are to die for! I thought I was in Heaven.
The kids were jumping for joy gazing up to the counter while their mom was carefully choosing her dozen doughnuts.It’s a lot of pressure deciding which combination to order, especially knowing their are people waiting in line behind you. I of course had to buy a few to bring home to my husband and son who devoured them the moment I walked in the door.
This place is a “must see” in Oakland. Foodies beware. You might just have to go back again and again.
