Coffee & Doughnuts on a Rainy Day
Is there anything better than coffee and doughnuts on a rainy day?
Cory and I try to have a doughnut date once a month. It’s a nice, little indulgence. I walk down to Blue Star early in the morning in hopes of avoiding crowds. I remember when they first opened and you always felt like you had the shop to yourself. But then the word got out about their deliciousness and you’re basically guaranteed a wait time. But a doughnut date is a fail if you don’t bring the doughnuts so I wait without grudge. I tend to pick out a sampling because it’s impossible to choose just one. From their popular blueberry bourbon basil to their underrated dulce de leche hazelnut. I wander over to The Ace with my doughnut box and meet up with Cory who supplies the coffee from Stumptown. Our dates are a team effort, really.
Now, who’s ready for doughnuts?
