Is there a hole in this cool-looking donut shop’s aura?

Good times, bad times?

The custom donut shop practically screamed our names as my dear wife Karen and I headed down Clinton Street in downtown Syracuse.

Glazed and Confused.

We’d heard so much about it.

Dough slingers.

We had to go in and look around.

Their pride.

Their product smelled great and looked interesting.

This place has been many different food joints in my 36 years as a Central New Yorker. I’m wondering if this will be a joint to stick or a craze to pass.

Two to go.

We threw our to-go box back into the car so we could attend Polish Fest and meet the kids for lunch.

At home, Karen ate the bulk. My several bites led me to the opinion that they were very cake-like. She agreed. I prefer a Dunkin‘ Donuts classic Boston Kreme.

  1. I love your ‘glazed and confused’ line. my favs are from our local neighborhood joint, love the coconut and French crullers the best. (and most everything, truthfully). glad you tried it, you never know –


  2. I can’t eat donuts because of my gluten free diet but I used to love Dunkin Donuts . In Houston we have Shipleys and I grew up in walking distance of one . We would eat them by the dozens ! Mmm , I’m hungry !


  3. I’m always inthralled with how many kinds of donuts there are! But I’m not one to eat many. If I really have to have one… I enjoy the homemade Amish donuts found at a local market… they are warm when eaten!

    Looks like a fun place!


  4. I love the name of that donut shop.

    Here, we have Paula’s donuts, but I haven’t been there yet. I hear their donuts are HUGE – one of my girls said one donut would feed two people. Paula’s has become so popular that they just opened a second site. One of these days I’ll get there.
