First Taste of Doughnut Love

Serving up all sorts of doughnuts with different types from yeast, brioche, filled, glazed, cake, gluten-free along with fritters is recently opened spot in Coquitlam. They are all about supporting local with berries coming from nearby farms.

Owned by Husband and wife team, Clint and Kathy Hiles they set their sights on opening a doughnut shop and café and they have done just that, get there early as they sell out daily.

In addition to the doughnuts they are serving up a selection of coffees with coffee beans from local roaster Republica Coffee.

They feature a variety of naturally leavened brioche doughnuts on a rotating menu, including vegan and gluten-free options. 

I have tried a selection of their donuts and a coffee.

S’mores donut which I loved

Raspberry jelly filled donut

Coconut cake donut for all those who love coconut like me.

Gluten Free Chocolate donut, if you can’t eat gluten then this one is for you

Classic Buttermilk donut with lemon zest

Cherry Pie donut, topped with a pie pastry heart, it’s their July monthly special and it’s one not to miss.

Apple Fritter and I loved this one as well

Salted Caramel donut, another favourite.
