WHAT WE ATE...It was difficult to decide which doughnut to pick as there were so many tantalising flavour combinations. In the end I opted for the ‘Maple, Walnut and Brown Butter Donut ($5.00)’. This was incredibly scrummy with a soft, fresh centre and a moreish outer coating that flaked when you took a bite. The earthiness from the walnuts and the sweetness from the maple created a wonderful doughnut flavour.
My dining companion chose the ‘Rhubarb and Ginger Donut ($4.50)’. This was also yummy but our favourite was the maple and walnut doughnut.
OVERALL…With many doughnut shops opening up around Melbourne, we are quite spoilt for choice! One of the leaders in Melbourne doughnuts is Shortstop Coffee & Donuts which is tucked away in the CBD and specialises in cake rather than yeast doughnuts. This place is very popular so to skip the queues, jump onto their website and pre-order your doughnuts. After a couple of rounds of ten pin bowling, we bought some doughnuts at Shortstop for afternoon tea. The service was great and we even received complimentary glasses of sparkling water with our doughnuts! I can’t wait to try some more of their doughnuts. Perhaps, the Earl Grey and Rose Donut…
