On our way out of Courtenay, we made one last pit stop to check out Bigfoot Donuts. They’re located across the street from Pizzeria Guerrilla.
We dropped in on a Tuesday morning (around 10:15am). There were a couple of groups inside but service is prompt and efficient.
9 donut flavours to choose from along with a few savoury options (pizza pretzel looked tasty).
Donut prices are reasonable ($2.00 to $3.00) and you save a bit when you buy 6/12 donuts.
For drinks, there’s coffee & espresso, tea, milk & more, seasonal drinks and their houseblend chai. All prices already include taxes.
More menus when you walk up to the counter.
Classic houseblend chai ($5.00 medium)
Traditional spices and assam tea. Better than your usual chai but we could have used more punch in flavour.
Mixed variety – Bigfoot half dozen ($15.00)
We opted for the O.G. (original glazed), glazed crueller, apple fritter and three seasonal (pumpkin pie old fashioned, blackberry apple pie and pecan pie).
The blackberry apple pie was fantastic; excellent texture and the filling was perfect. Just like eating apple pie.
BD’s a must stop if you’re a donut fan. Good quality, reasonably priced donuts!
