Doughnut Plant – New York, NY

Our good friend Stanford used to work and live in NYC and now lives in Seattle but still commutes from time to time for work and recommended this decadent spot to us on our recent trip out there.  My husband happens to be a HUGE fan of donuts so this was definitely a spot on our to do list.  The good news is we walked there therefore we felt validated in eating a donut…as if it were an award for our exercise.  Sick…I know:)

When I asked what the most popular donut was, the cute gal behind the counter quickly replied, “The Créme Brulée”.  I happen to not care for creme filled things so being boring I went for the cake style donut with sugar and cinnamon.  Delicious despite how “safe” of a choice it was.  I can’t say my husband did any better.  He went for the Vanilla Bean yeast style donut.  Similar in style to Krispy Kreme.  I honestly don’t think you can go wrong here.

There she is!Choices, choices, choices…Mmmm:)

Lola – Seattle, WA

Best breakfast in town!!!  Some families have a special Sunday breakfast tradition that consists of waffles, bacon, sweet rolls, etc…in our house we skip the cooking and go downtown to Lola.  If we’re lucky we’ll grab two seats at the bar where the vibe is casual and you can usually catch a football game on.

We usually order the same thing every time – my husband gets the Eggs Benedict and I get the Greek Scramble.  This time however I ventured out of my comfort zone and got the Truffled Crimini Omelette (made as a scramble) which had fontina and chives in it served with smoked bacon, their famous smashed garlic fried potatoes and toast…DELICIOUS!!!  I would order this again in a heartbeat!

Another thing we always order are the donuts.  They’re made to order and served with a seasonal jam and vanilla mascarpone…whoa…a little too good:)

Not surprising that we love this place…it’s one of Tom Douglas’ many but he’s clearly doing something right because all of them are amazing in their own unique way.  Lola is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and is described as Mediterranean meets North Africa…an interesting yet successful blend of cuisines in my opinion.
