UPDATE 9/2/19: Little Blue Donut Co. announced yesterday via Instagram it has closed the doors to its shop in Winter Park. They will continue to operate and serve delicious donuts solely out of their food truck. You can read the full explanation from Little Blue Donut on their Instagram.
WARNING: You are now entering a drool zone. Attendees may get wet.
Are you a fan of doughnuts? Ok. You, in the back of the class – I can see your hand but I can’t see your face. Well, if you and anyone else in the class are you surely know about the Little Blue Donut Co. Either their adorable food truck, or their [relatively] new brick & mortar.
I recently popped in to their store–located on Fairbanks Avenue just around the corner from Park Avenue in Winter Park–just after working out at the gym (shh – what my trainer doesn’t know won’t hurt her). When the beautiful smell of dough and frosting assaulted my nose after opening the front door, I felt every doubt about going dissolve away.
The first thing about entering the store worth noting is the number of doughnut options to choose from. It certainly created an overwhelming potential inadequacy to make a decision. Good thing there’s a “guide” posted on the wall immediately to the right of the entrance.
Whew! insert wiping head emoji That was stressful. But now that my decision was finally made I placed my order to the associate behind the counter, back to the open concept kitchen/prep area (doughnuts are made-to-order to guarantee freshness). Are you ready? Think you know me? ‘Cause I know you’ve been sitting on the edge of your seat to find out what I ordered (in clockwise order):
- Frosted (with sprinkles). It’s that superstar one at the top of the pic above. Doesn’t it look delightful?
- Cinnamon Sugar. Pretty simple self-titled little guy.
- Cookies-n-Cream. Vanilla icing, oreo cookies with a marshmallow drizzle. This is the heavy drool zone, by the way. Didn’t we tell ya?
- Salted caramel. Yes – salted caramel. Let me say it again: SALTED CARAMEL! Caramel icing with a dusting of rock salt. I’m done….
Four is better than three…is better than two…is better than one…. Right? 🍩🍩🍩🍩
“Our donuts are always hot and fresh! Choose from any of our menu items or weekly specials or create your own!”
Just a heads up, while there is seating available inside the “store,” it is minimal. And the atmosphere, really, isn’t that conducive to a sit-and-stay type of experience. It’s really best to grab your order and take it with you (the store is just a few blocks from Park Avenue, so maybe grab a bench and enjoy the sunshine while enjoying your indulgences?).
At this point I simply don’t know if I can go on any longer. I may have to run out and grab one or two of these bad boys before the day is over.
