A Fork & Spoon Blog: Eating Donuts In Tyler TX
By Tena Jerger
I love breakfast. I love everything about breakfast, from donuts to eggs to pastries – breakfast is, in my opinion, the most versatile meal and also the most tasty. I could eat “breakfast” twice a day with no problem.
One of my favorite breakfast foods is the All-American donut – glazed, creme filled, apple fritters, cake-style donuts – what’s not to love.
Here are a few of my favorite haunts and my picks at each location.
The Donut Place, located right next to Green Acres Bowling Alley in Tyler, TX, has the best glazed donuts I’ve had in a while. Their standard glazed donuts are slightly bigger than some other places too! Get a few dozen, trust me, you are going to want more than you’d normally eat.
Shipley’s Do-Nuts, located ironically next door to Planet Fitness on the east Loop in Tyler, has a great selection but the Creme-filled donuts are pure heaven on earth. Stuffed full of thick marshmallow-style creme, then fried perfectly and glazed with a nice soft and slightly crunchy glaze, these “do-nuts” will make you happy. They also have a drive-thru but I try to walk there after my Planet Fitness workout. Two creme filled and a glazed is my Saturday morning reward for working out. It is total yummy in my tummy!
While there, watch for the Devils Food Donut – if you are a chocolate lover, this is absolutely heavenly! Picture this: chocolate dough glazed donut filled abundantly with warm chocolate filling…it is every chocolate lovers “dream donut”.
Apple Fitters are fantastic at Star Donuts, located on Broadway next to Bergfeld Park in Tyler. They are fresh, slightly crunchy on the outside yet doughy and soft on the inside, loaded with glaze and cinnamon. Oh, and they huge! What’s not to like.
Sugared out? Star Donuts and Croissants, located at Troup Hwy. in Tyler has all the normal selections plus a unique boudin kolache. That’s right, boudin sausage placed inside of the bread dough, then baked. It is a little spicy but not too much and the bread helps collect the, um, juices so that you never miss a bite of yumminess. These kolaches are big, served piping hot with a packet of yellow mustard.
Got a favorite? Comment below with your suggestions. I’d love to try it out….like, seriously, would LOVE too!
