Dandy Donuts. A review.

The location of this unassuming donut and sub shop is pretty genius in my businesswoman eyes. Cheap eats directly across from a high school and open during high school hours. Summer may be perhaps brutal on the business with school being out and grownups watching their bikini figures but nevermind. I went in anyway. I'll just swim a few extra laps this weekend.

I didnt get there til 3 pm and they close at 4. I was glad there was still some selection as I have read it's pretty cleaned out if you don't get there early. I found the owner, an asian couple, to be the only ones inside.  I likely was the last customer in the past hour and the last one of the day. 

I haven't eaten a donut in probably 2 years or thereabouts. I will tell you why: First of all I don't live or really even drive anywhere near Sublime or Dutch Monkey.  Second, the Franchise shops are so devoid of personality despite an array of flavors they just have no love in them and taste artificial.  

Dandy donuts are full of love! Let me break it down by some flavors. The oil they are cooked in doesn't leave any taste behind so to me that means it's fresh.  The donuts are not filled by a machine but rather, depending on variety, sliced open and filling is sandwiched in or piped in.  Do not miss the apple crumb. This is one that is sliced up and filled with apples. The cream cheese is also sliced open an spread with cream cheese pastry cream.  I actually said "wow" after my first bite. 

Honey is a standard raised glazed donut but it beats the socks off any other I've had of its kind.  Boston cream is piped in and while perfectly delicious the previous mentioned would keep me from getting it again. I'd rather have two apple.  There are sour cream cake donuts available plain or topped with chocolate. I had a bite of the chocolate one and would probably pass on that one again too.  Donuts are so personal but these are darn impressive and worth driving 3 extra miles from home for. 

They do accept credit cards now for a tiny fee. Pay it. CC fees take a big chunk of revenue for small businesses selling low dollar items.
