In short, Wylie Dufresne’s Du’s Donuts has amazingly moist cake donuts (my favorite kind!).
After Jess showed me that Wylie Dufresne was opening his own donut shop at the hip-yet-obscene-yet-classy looking Willam Vale Hotel in Williamsburg Brooklyn, I had to get some.
Du’s Donuts are perfectly shaped inner tubes (like the ones you use to go tubing on, except you eat these) with a refined artistry in its flavor toppings.
Here are the eight that Du’s Donuts had on opening day.
From left to right, top row first:
- Mexican Hot Chocolate
- Coffee Malt
- Cinnamon Apple
- Honey Fennel Pollen
- Banana Graham
- Strawberries and Cream
Their boxes fit half a dozen each, so two extras here:
Peanut Butter Yuzu
Du’s Donuts is Delicious
You might be thinking — “Geez Rob, you’re going to eat eight donuts?”. Well, there’s no way that I can eat all of them myself in one sitting (or in one day).
So I randomly tried two — the The Coffee Malt and the Strawberries and Cream. These two paired well with the espresso from Brooklyn Roasting Company. I really like the sugary tartness of the Strawberries and Cream.
Update: So I tried all the flavors and currently on a Du’s high. My favorites are the Strawberries and Cream, Banana Graham, and Creamsicle.
There are many ways to dress a donut, but what really matters the most is the donut cake itself. Donut flavors aside, this is an amazing cake donut. It’s moist but dense, and really really delicious.
Next time (as in the next few days), I’ll work my way through the other flavors. We’ll have to try the Pistachio Pink Lemonade when they have it.
Looking forward to stopping by Du’s Donuts more often for breakfast (until all the Instagrammers take it over). Visit it soon and you can probably spot Wylie Dufresne put the Du in duuunuts here (HAHAH 😂), just like Kari here.
