I finally was able to stop by Doughbot Donuts in midtown the other day.
Robot sitting at the front window
I read that the owners are a couple who are obsessed with donuts and robots, so they combined the two.
Wow, robots and robot artwork galore!
Strangely mesmerizing, but definitely fun. And I do love quirky.
You’ll probably want to sit on the vintage sofa right under this display and absorb it all.
More robot themed books, toys and stuff to peruse
They sell out pretty quickly.
Here’s the display case at 10:00 am. I was lucky they had a few more s’mores coming out.
Some of the donut descriptions are written on the glass wall to the left of the display case, where you can see some of the prep work being done.
Here I was able to catch a glimpse of the house made marshmallows being cut.
They’re later placed on the s’more donuts and torched to go.
Counter clockwise from the bottom: Bacon Maple- bacon studded yeast raised donut topped with maple glaze ; Lemon Lavender; Lime-Coconut Malasada filled with lime-coconut custard and rolled in Li Hing Sugar; The Dude- White Russian whipped cream filled, dipped in Kahlua reduction glaze; S’more- cinnamon sugar cake donut dipped in chocolate ganache, topped with house made marshmallow, toasted to order
These donuts aren’t fluff, they’re clearly denser, handmade donuts, with deliciously homemade fillings and toppings.
My favorite was the Lemon Lavender, though I couldn’t really taste the lavender.
