To be honest, I am not a huge fan of donut shops, but I was in a hurry. As I pulled up, I immediately knew this place was the truth. Not only does it look like a mini cathedral of donut-dom, but at 6:40am, it had a packed parking lot. And as I opened the door, I saw a packed restaurant of veterans (indicated by their hats) and workers (indicated by their uniforms). They had an impressive array of donuts that actually looked pretty good. Then, there was the $3.99 breakfast special sign. 2 eggs, home fries, choice of meat and toast. Blamo.
While waiting with my coffee, it became evident to me that everyone there was a regular. The servers knew the names of almost everyone in the room and everyone that came in the door...and were cheerful and nice to all of them. The equipment was old but clean. I was impressed. When the breakfast came up, it did not look like your typical $3.99 breakfast. The eggs looked properly cooked and not all messed up. There were plenty of home fries and the toast was still hot. The bacon was a generic and oily but it didn't taste too bad. All in all, a good hangover cure. Oh yeah, the coffee isn't bad either.
Before I left, I tried a donut. When I asked the server for a recommendation, she said that the "diaper" donut was her favorite. It's folded like a used diaper and filled with cinnamon sugar and nuts. It was a cute concept, so I gave it a shot. When I bit it, the filled kinda leaked out. Not bad...worth trying and definitely funny.
Oh yeah, coffee + donut + eggs, home fries, bacon and toast = $6.50. Nice.
