Stopped in because we were intrigued by them using potatoes. After we had one. We went back in to order a dozen more. Awesome.

“Truly delicious donuts and coffee, match made in heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

This is a lovely little establishment with friendly staff ready to help you chose your optimal donut! The guy helping us was happy to take his time and help us chose, of course we had to get two each just to get some variety...

I recommend the dark chocolate and sea salt and the lemon donut. Yum!

You can sit and eat at the coffee shop too and watch the world go by. Just lovely.

“Holy Cow These Were Good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Since this was the end of a long trip we really should have skipped donuts but they (the donuts) were calling us in. I am glad we went. We were good and shared these wonderful (made from potatoes I believe) donuts. They have a great selection. We tried the chocolate ones. They were delicious!

“It's a donut.. Staff was super awkward though... ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

It was a good donut. Soft and warm.. Nothing amazingly special though.. Ice coffee was great and had coffee ice cubes which is always awesome! The staff was odd, bumping into each other, not overly friendly and confused when it can to payment.. Seemed like a project just to get coffee and a donut...

“Best donut yet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I split 4 donuts from breakfast only bc we wanted to try so many flavors! We ordered chocolate sea salt, lemon, mojito, and toasted coconut. All were phenomenal and we couldn't agree on a favorite. This place is a definite must stop for breakfast in old town portland.
