There has been something wrong with me all along, I have not gotten any donuts in OB! There is a duh factor in the whole situation but I made it and now I've crossed another off my donut bucket list. This place is on Sunset Cliffs Blvd in a mini-strip of shops/restaurants so while it does not have the charm of Newport Ave it's a very convenient location.
Dudes working in this place were hustling. It was busy in the morning and it was a happening system. I'm just embarrassed that I can't choose a dozen donuts and know in my head as I'm rattling off flavors when I've hit 12. I should know this by now. Instead, I have to feel like some amateur who has to keep asking how many I have left to choose. I have to cut myself some slack because I hadn't had any coffee yet, but it's a skill I have to master.
Standard solid selection of donuts here with everything in stock and it was obvious the kitchen was still pumping out more for the day ahead. I wish I had a picture of the dozen stacked inside the pink box because they were aligned perfectly. The guy working had a definite plan on box-filling and executed it flawlessly. Then they got a big ol' pile of donut holes behind the counter they throw in automatically.
I had a chocolate frosted buttermilk just so I could do a recent comparison to the Goodys glazed buttermilk donut experience. This one was a little hard, didn't appear to be a freshness issue, perhaps just an overcooked issue. Great chocolate frosting. The donut holes were good, a little pale. They didn't achieve that golden brown hue I'm accustomed to, but despite the light color, they were suitably tasty.
