Another staple in Gasoline Alley that I’ve never been to until now! The Donut Mill specializes in, you guessed it, donuts but even more mind blowing is that they have soups, sandwiches and other food options that actually look appetizing.
We checked them out early Sunday afternoon on the way back home. Think old school diner style and that’s the Donut Mill. Everything is homemade and you can tell it’s a popular spot the moment you step foot inside.
Look at all dem donuts. The left side of the display had old fashioned, chocolate glaze, honey dip, apple fritters, and coconut to name a few.
The right side was just as enticing with oreo, vanilla lemon, apple pie, chocolate/maple/rainbow dip, rolo. Sooo many choices.
1/2 Dozen donuts ($7.49)
From left clockwise, we picked raspberry bismark, chocolate raspberry, apple pie, oreo, white chocolate macadamia nut and apple fritter. My buddy went with both of the raspberry donuts as he loves the filling. I had a lick and you can tell it’s homemade. Apple pie and the macadamia (donut of the month) were mine. The macadamia had macadamia whipped cream inside that was so light and fluffy.
Can you guess what the apple pie tasted like? Just like eating real apple pie! Last but not least were the apple fritter and oreo. I had a bite of the apple fritter and we liked that it wasn’t too sweet. Everything was fresh.
Definitely a solid place to grab lunch and snacks for the road! D’oh nut heaven.
