I recently visited Gourdough's and ordered the Funky Monkey Donut. It was topped with brown sugar and bananas and cream cheese frosting. It was perfect! If you are in the Austin area, you must stop for a sweey & savory treat!

This place was crowded, but worth the wait. You can get anything on or with a doughnut. From a burger to incredible desserts. Prices were a little high. Service was very good. As busy as it was, we had great service.
