My Dear Donut Lovers,
I apologize for my absence. Grad finals were due and they were kicking my butt so I had to take a short hiatus from the blogging world and even (gasp!) from the donut world. And just when I was ready to be back, my puppy decided to eat a raw pizza dough that required an emergency vet visit. My pup is more important than blogging- but she is okay so now I am back at it.
Now onto the donut info –>I had the pleasure of living one year in the North End of Boston. When I first moved out here from the West Coast, I was appalled at the size of apartments and the stink of summer in the North End. But I found a gem right next door: Boston Common Coffee. Unfortunately, the North End location is no longer open (probably something to due with the rent – it’s killer) but there are several locations around town that still have that easy vibe of a coffee spot they are known for with great snacks too!
(Pro tip: they have discounted breakfast treats in the afternoon – 50% off usually)
I stopped in on a rainy day recently and discovered this gem: Donut Thursdays. AND THEY OFFER A VEGAN OPTION.
Obviously, I had to try it.
For not being a donut shop, they produce a heck of a donut and I was impressed with the tart cherry flavor and the coconut crumble topping. The donut consistency was a bit spongey for me but such are vegan donuts and all in all I really enjoyed it.
If you find yourself in the city, and stumble into a Boston Common Coffee, and it happens to be a Thursday – get one. You won’t regret it.
I’ll be back soon with some more local spots and even a new recipe! Stay tuned!
