What could possibly be better than Christmas? Eating a real Dunkin' Donuts donut in my 'hood. Today I ventured over to Cafe Donuts, 5001 Central Ave NE Columbia Heights. From the outside it looks like just a regular Ma and Pa donut shop, but on the inside it's all Dunkin' Donuts. They have all the wonderful varieties of my childhood, too. I am so excited! Even better--they still taste the same. The only thing that's different is I can successfully eat a jelly donut without getting the filling all over me. As a kid, my parents made me eat those outside or in the garage, so I wouldn't create a big mess all over the house. I am so glad I finally found good quality donuts in Minneapolis.

Did you see that that donut shop also has ice cream?? And it's frakking delicious! They're on my list for one of the places to find "real" ice cream in Mpls. Mmmm... ice cream.... Hmmm donuts, too.... :-) Joy

Uh-oh..donuts and ice cream in one location. That sounds pretty dangerous! :) I did notice the ice cream, but I pretty much ignored it because I was so focused on the donuts. I'll have to go back for ice cream. Thanks for the tip!
