Sometimes you just really want a donut. And sometimes you want that donut to have bacon on it. Enter fōnuts. Like, faux donuts. Because the deal at fōnuts is that nothing they serve is ever fried — it’s all either steamed or baked. So naturally, Mr. Lovely and I had to go and check this place out to see how good a steamed donut can be.
We popped by on a lazy Saturday morning and found a seat in the sunshine. While we were trying to decide on our order the kind folks behind the counter let us try a mini version of the Strawberry Buttermilk, which tasted like the best strawberry milkshake I’d ever had. After much deliberation, we decided to sample a few and got a half dozen: Rosemary Olive Oil, Maple Bacon, Chorizo Cheddar, Blueberry Earl Gray, Lemon, and a good old Glazed with Sprinkles.
We just wanted a couple bites of each, so we got down to business. Weirdly, I think my fave was the Chorizo Cheddar! It was like a breakfast sandwich — savory and filling. Mr. Lovely was loving the Maple Bacon. Each one kind of had its own vibe — the Rosemary was like bread before a meal, the glazed was cakey, the blueberry made you feel like you were 8 years old again and you needed a glass of milk. Truth be told, I can’t vouch for the lemon; that was Mr. Lovely’s choice through and through. I don’t really do lemon pastry. Blech.
But long story short, it was all delicious and it’s a quick, easy stop for sharing a sweet! Grab a couple of coffees and split a fōnut or two. You won’t be sorry. xoxo
