donuts within walking distance

Conveniently there is a donut shop within walking distance of our apartment. And this morning, despite my tendency to sweat excessively with even the slightest physical exertion and my general fear of human interaction, we ventured out to Donut Plus Depot. The walk only takes ten minutes, but in that ten minutes there are many sights to take in: a seven eleven that is always busy, fruit vendors, and a host of tag sales (it's Saturday, what else is there to do?). Finally after being distracted by several slightly used pairs of high top converse sneakers and a dog or two (who were unfortunately not for sale, but still very cute) we arrived at Donut Plus Depot.
Needless to say, it's not the most glamorous place, however, if I ever get a donut/tamale craving I can get both in this plaza!
This isn't exactly somewhere I would venture on my own, but with Nate (and my pepper spray) by my side in we went. The store itself boasts a few tables, and sells lotto tickets alongside the donuts. After glancing about for a few moments we quickly made our selection and emerged with a small coffee, a boston creme donut, and a crumb donut and three less dollars in our pockets. I'm not a big fan of coffee, and frankly, coffee does not like me very much either so that was all Nate's, and "left something to be desired" even though, Donut Plus Depot did have real milk and not that powdered creamer substitute.
But while the coffee was not as good as Nate had hoped, the donuts were pretty tasty.
We're not quite sure what exactly the crumbs were on the crumb one, but they were sweet and perfectly complemented the cake-like sweetness of the donut dough. The boston creme, my all time favorite donut, was also pretty good. I'm a little bit more picky, I suppose, but when I order a donut with chocolate on it, I want to taste the chocolate, and this boston creme left only a slight chocolate aftertaste at best. For the convenience, Donut Plus Depot is pretty good, but I may just be willing to walk a little further (or drive) to get my chocolate craving fully satisfied.

  1. The exterior of this donut shop looks like an economy hardware store.
