Gourmet donuts have become really popular recently. We Americans have always loved a good donut with coffee on a Sunday morning but our obsession and demand has grown. We now crave more than just an old-fashioned glazed from the grocery store. We want the over the top, the obscure and the finest. When I find myself at a donut shop, I tend to look for the most outrageous, the one that I can’t get anywhere else.
A little bit ago, I caught word of a newer donut shop right in the heart of Minneapolis. People had been instagraming pictures of neon bright beautifully designed donuts from Glam Doll, so I figured I had to try it out.
I came on a Saturday morning and joined the line that curved down the street. That had to mean it was good. After waiting, I got to the counter and ordered 2 donuts out of the dozens of unique kinds from the display case. The display case itself is quite impressive since it is beautifully laid out and eye catching. I ordered a lemon creme cheese cruller and a blackberry filled parmesan cheese cake donut. My friend got a plain frosted one which she described as amazing.
They really were well worth the wait. The cruller literally melted in my month and I was obsessed with the frosting that came on top of it. The blackberry one was maybe a little too rich, but I really enjoyed it being paired with parmesan cheese making the donut one of a kind. They also have some interesting savory donuts such a Sriracha donut and beer blended donut.
The shop is super cute with fun little decorations and a pink color scheme. The sitting area is surprisingly quiet which allows you to relax while eating. They also have a coffee shop like area with all sorts of coffee and tea to enjoy the donuts with, making the experience complete.
I highly recommend venturing to uptown on a weekend morning to discover fabulous donuts in a great environment. It all makes for a great outing.
