While this franchise has expanded to multiple locations with a loyal following it's still a cake doughnut with toppings. Went in this one for a quick desert treat for the wife and it was very good. KK fan just so it's not for me.

Went in to order two donuts, there was no line and they were ready within 5 minutes of us ordering. They were so good, and probably the best donut I've ever had. Wasn't a bad price either.

OK...but a little bit cakey for my English palate. The icing ran off the donuts,had to scrape it off the bottom of the box.Bit pricey too.

Creative doughnuts, totally delicious. Delightful people who are patient and kind. I enjoyed my conversation as much as I enjoyed the Key lime frosting on that yummy doughnut.
