The Donut Hole

So, remember I told you we had one of the best breakfasts ever while on vacation? You didn’t think I would just tease you and leave you hanging did you?
We over heard a lady talking at the pool one day about this great little restaurant called The Donut Hole. I mean with a name like that how can you go wrong? On our last morning there, we loaded up the car and decided to hit up this little joint on the way out of town, and boy am I glad we did!
I ordered a tall stack of pancakes topped with fresh bananas and powdered sugar…

Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder ordered the “everything” special, and when they say everything… they mean everything. Pancakes, eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, sausage, ham and a biscuit. Whew!

Littlest sister ordered a cheesy omelet with hashbrowns and a biscuit. If you can’t tell by the pictures, the portions were huge! We could have shared easily. When we all got our plates we kind of looked at them like this…

“Umm, how in the world can they expect me to eat all of this?”

“Mmm, it’s a pretty yummy challenge either way!”
Needless to say, as good as it was, there was no way we could have finished it. There was just something missing though… how could we make a trip to the Donut Hole and not have a donut?
You see, they’re real clever like that. They make you pay your bill at the donut counter. How can you resist getting a dozen fresh-baked donuts for the road? 

We couldn’t.

We brought back a variety to yummy treats: original glazed, devils food with chocolate icing, coconut, raspberry-filled, glazed chocolate cake, glazed blueberry cake and even sour cream.
Happy hearts, happy bellies. That’s a sweet ending that just can’t be beat.
So you have make a pancake promise with me. If you are ever in the area you have to swing by the Donut Hole. It’s one sweet little restaurant you won’t soon forget.

    Yum! That looks like a great spot. As you know, France does buttery pastries well, but can I tell you a secret? Every so often, I would give all the croissants in the world for a perfect glazed donut!!
