it's time for a /donut/ thread. Does /ck/ like donuts? What's the best donut shop near you?

I've always had simple tastes, a plain chocolate iced or classic glazed is more than enough to keep me happy. Although I've fallen in love with the French Toast donut and other maple-infused concoctions.

I live in Chicago and there's a ton of good donut places but all the best ones are in the downtown loop which is pretty out of the way. although there's a place called Stan's Donuts that expanded into then neighborhood between my apartment and my college and they're great. But in my opinion nothing'll ever beat a place in Joliet, IL called Home Cut Donuts.

I do love me a good donut. It's been a while since I've had some though. Donuts and coffee is the tits. I ain't really picky about the flavor unless it's got coconut on it. I live in a small town and the only donut place is this place called Stoken's donuts. They're pretty good
>>
Currently living in Southern California, and I would have to say (in my limited experience), that the best donut shop around is VG Bakery. Always fresh, always a line out the door. Coming from Portland it is nice to find a donuts shop that has quality goods without all the meme-y customers.

Donuts are delicious but I can't have them too often. They're literally dessert for breakfast. But like >>7334680 said, good donuts and good coffee is an excellent way to start a morning.

Does anyone else fucking hate cake donuts though? Dry as shit and not very flavorful, I have no idea how they can compete with the soft kind. However, I will concede that cake donuts are the reigning champs of coffee dunkability.

i live in one of those places in texas where we have a million donut/kolache places run by asian families. they all have slightly different donut styles and it's pretty awesome. we also have shipley's and dunkin donuts which just can't hold a candle to them, in my opinion (though walking into a dunkin donuts is still magical).

i'll usually do a regular old yeast glazed donut. maybe maple or cherry frosted. sometimes an apple fritter. pair that with a couple of sausage kolaches and you have the perfect sweet/savory balance for breakfast (even if it's bread bread bread bread bread)

Regarding Portland doughnuts, Voodoo doughnuts is the top meme tourist local spot to hit.

But here is the truth - they but all their doughnut mix from a company in Pico Rivera, CA called Wesco. Everything they make is a just add water mix that is available to anyone else with a commercial business.

They may use some local flavors that they'll tell you about but the glazes, fillings, and icings all come from a bucket made in a factory in Los Angeles industrial suburb.

But it's also open 24 hours in a formerly dingy, now hip area and they make doughnuts shaped like dicks.

The best, THE ABSOLUTE BEST I've ever had anywhere, and I travel a ton, is Krumpe's Do-Nuts in Hagerstown, MD.

Butchering a quote to describe how they compare: "You take any donut ever made. Is it a Krumpe's?"

Seriously, the only bad thing about them is that when you have one for the first time, you can't ever have one for the first time ever again.

The ones near me have bland, dry donuts. The only thing worth getting is the crullers.

Shipley's Donuts is one the things I miss most about Texas.
The kolache places are right up there with them. Sausage/jalapeno = godtier.

I was in the US a few weeks back and you guys have glazed donuts and they are amazing. Here I can only ever find ones with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar. I want glazed ones again.

The closest I could find was a glazed cronut at Butlers, but that's not the same

Question /ck/ how unstable is a donut business? I have a friend that wants to start one, specifically a donut truck and have me as the baker for it. He's been throwing around if we should have other things then donuts in it, such as coffee and maybe breakfast sandwiches. We live in SoCal if that matters.

I really like a good well-made sour cream doughnut. It's very hard to find one that isn't overly-iced, or not tangy enough.

I try to avoid them, but when I go by Round Rock Donuts in Georgetown TX I have to stop.

And get some of the small ones. The big ones terrify me. I couldn't get one for fear of eating the whole thing, since the small ones are already by far the best donuts I've ever eaten.

Their cake donuts are top level as well.

I know some people who do mobile Donuts at fairs, conventions, trade shows etc. I don't think there's a huge market for static donut trucks in most places, can't speak to where you live however.

Some things to remember:

Have a gimmick - Make it interesting. Nobody wants to buy Joe Blow's Donuts. Do Cowboy Donuts, or Surfer Donuts or Beach Donuts or whatever the fuck.

Cater the Size - For events that people attend in groups, make small donuts. Sugar etc the fuck out of them, sell them by the dozen in paper sleeves. People buy that shit like hotcakes. Alternatively, if you're static, do whatever.

Coffee - You want to sell your own coffee. It doesn't matter where you get it. Tie it in with your gimmick, say it's roasted in [wherever ties into your gimmick] and sell the beans at some stupid price if you're at an event. This will make as much money as the donuts if you're giving samples.

Samples - People love free samples. They also feel obligated to buy after having a sample because lol psychology. Give somebody a free mini donut and a tiny cup of coffee and they'll probably buy some more donuts out of obligation.

Location is everything.

Shipley's donuts is my thing. Donuts that're crispy are just...not my thing, I guess. I like plain glaze, and chocolate glaze with nuts, but I can only ever eat one because of how sweet donuts are. I usually do one regular donut and two cake donuts.

There's a weird lack of non-chain donut shops in Houston. I've seen two in my twenty years of living here, and both of them sucked.
