Bakeries

Donut Shop
“Get in line early...They usually run out of donuts by 10am. The menu is simple and to the point. They don't offer as many flavors like other doughnut stores, but that's kinda the charm. Saves the stress of having to pick and choose which ones to get. Try the buttermilk old fashion, and it's the bomb with the perfect crunch. The place is tiny, can only fit like 4-5 people in there at once. There's no seating inside so you have to wait to eat them or just devour them outside of the store like we do.”
