Chocolate Dipped Churro Donut – Donut Republic

Because after eating a savory donut, I needed a sweet, dessert donut! Donut Republic, had many delectable options to choose from, but I decided to go with the chocolate dipped churro. This donut has both chocolate AND cinnamon sugar! 2 great ingredients for a donut. I asked the owner (who was selling the donuts that… Continue reading Chocolate Dipped Churro Donut – Donut Republic

Cornbread Donut – Donut Republic

I can’t exactly remember how or when I started following Donut Republic on Instagram. Although they are based in River Forest, they partake in pop-ups at Chicago businesses including West Elm, Hopewell Brewing, and On Tour Brewing. One day when scrolling through my feed I saw they were offering a special “donut after dark” – a… Continue reading Cornbread Donut – Donut Republic

Beignets – Grand Luxe Cafe

Located just off the Magnificent Mile in Chicago is the Grand Luxe Cafe. Have you been to the Cheesecake Factory?

Although working from home has its perks, I prefer (most of the time) working in an office environment. You have the opportunity to meet a lot of different people and sometimes those lovely coworkers bring in treats! One morning I was greeted with Apple cider donuts from Elegant Farmer. This farm is located in Mukwonago,… Continue reading Apple Cider Donuts – Elegant Farmer

Buttermilk Old-Fashioned – Firecakes

Usually, when faced with the decision of old-fashioned donut vs. yeast donut (aka the fluffy kind), I pick yeast. It’s a classic. A glazed [yeast] donut is a simple classic, but today’s post is not about that donut. Today we’re talking about a REALLY GOOD old-fashioned donut. So good as in, I may have converted… Continue reading Buttermilk Old-Fashioned – Firecakes

Red Velvet Old-Fashioned – World’s Fair Donuts

Growing up close to St. Louis, I never really ate many donuts there. Most of the donuts I consumed as a child were from Krispy Kream (I am aware I have not eaten a donut from here yet at it makes me mad every time I remember that) or Tom’s. While I’ve managed to review a few… Continue reading Red Velvet Old-Fashioned – World’s Fair Donuts

Apple Fritter – Somethin’ Sweet Donuts

Because I’m always on the lookout for new donut shops to try–especially in different parts of the city–I sometimes peruse the internet* for “Best Donuts in Chicago” articles. A while ago, I found an Eater Chicago article from 2016 titled “Chicago Doughnut Guide: Where to Eat Fried Dough.” While a lot of the usual suspects were… Continue reading Apple Fritter – Somethin’ Sweet Donuts
