My Take

Many new doughnut shops have opened in an effort to have people pay two or three times as much for one as they would at Timmy’s or some other generic bakeshop.  In many cases, they fall flat…literally.  They are often dense, cakey, sickly-sweet and offer little taste benefit over their cheaper competitors.  In other words, sprinkling a bit of balsamic on a half-ass doughnut doesn’t make it worth three bucks.

Suzie Q reintroduces the lost art of the yeast doughnut (not donut) back into fashion.  They are light, doughy, nicely leavened and not overly sweet.  In fact, you can taste the yeast in the dough.  As far as designer doughnuts go, they are well worth the $2/each or the $10/6 price tag.
