It’s been awhile since my last visit to Take Five (see here). I’m pretty sure this is old man paradise.
There’s a soup, donut and coffee deal for $4.99. A little throwback to old school prices.
There’s a couple menu boards hanging up. Sandwiches and soups to start.
More subs and salads.
Donuts and pastries. Love how they call their miniature donuts, donut holes.
Beverages. Wonder if their apple cidar (is that spelt wrong on purpose)?
Two pastry case full of goodies.
This is what you care about the most: the donut shelf.
French cruller ($1.09)
This was my favourite out of the bunch of donuts we got this time. Note, the cruller has to be ordered separately from the half dozen/dozen options. Totally worth the extra $0.13 cents. Light, fresh and just the right amount of sugar.
Half dozen ($5.75)
We decided to be “reasonable” adults and share a half dozen between the two of us. Starting from the bottom left and clockwise, we grabbed a bavarian cream, apple ‘n’ spice, honey glazed, blueberry fritter, apple fritter and dulce de leche.
The honey glaze was both of our favourites. The apple ‘n’ spice tasted just like eating an apple pie. Filling was good! Apple fritter was a bit dry but the blueberry fritter was better in terms of freshness. The dulce de leche filling was too sweet for my palate. Last but not least, the bavarian did not appeal to either of us.
One of the few places in town where you can get donuts! I’ll make it one of these days to Hazeldean Bakery to compare, I swear.
