Of course you can’t go wrong with their hand-torched creme brulee, but lately, we’ve also been somewhat addicted to the glorious fruitiness of their big poppa-tart donut, and the “oh my peanut butter Oreo,” which tastes like you mashed up your entire third-grade lunch, covered it in dough, and fried it. In a good way. Such a good way. —

The Donut Bar, located at 631 B Street, was also recently named among the “10 Best Donut Shops in the U.S.” by The site praised the shop’s creative creations, “including their popular hand-torched crème brûlée doughnut and the decadent maple bacon bar. Flavors rotate daily, so be sure to check the website before you go for the day’s line-up (and to make sure they haven’t sold out yet).”
