Attention Hipsters: Donuts are the new cupcakes!
Artisan donut shops (a long time staple of hipster meccas like Portland, OR) have come to Los Angeles and I could not be happier. A few weekends ago, the boy and I decided to try one of the Secret Stairs hikes out in the Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park. When I mapped the starting point of the hike I couldn't help but notice it was mere minutes from a place I have been wanting to visit forever...Donut Friend.
This place is taking donuts to the next level. Donuts with peanut butter and jelly inside, donuts that taste like Samoas, donuts with fruit and jam and ice cream and chocolate and everything amazing.
I decided on the strawberry shortcake donut. A traditional donut filled with whipped cream, fresh strawberries, and topped with chocolate glaze aka POSSIBLY ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I HAVE EVER EATEN.
It was also, surprisingly, not super heavy. In fact, I kind of wish that I got two. Guess I will just have to go back another day...
