Say good morning to Crosstown Doughnuts in London, England!
Nestled in the busy streets of Soho, Crosstown Doughnuts is a tiny beacon of hope for donut lovers. I’d been in Europe about two weeks and while I had consumed a lot of tasty sweet treats, I had yet to mark off donuts from the list.
The donuts here were fucking pricey, I’ll be the first to admit, but there were a lot of options to choose from.
After making a selection we turned around to take a bite but someone beat us to it with these stools…
My favorite donuts are usually the less flashy ones so I went with just a plain sugar and plain glazed pair.
In hindsight, I should have went with one of their more daring flavors as their website says they take pride in “utilizing the best ingredients whilst making everything in house – whether a jam, compote, glaze, filling or topping.” That kind of makes me regret not trying a Seven Berry doughnut (with a glaze of strawberry, blackcurrant, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, redcurrant and elderberry) or a Coffee Custard Scroll (sourdough rolled with coffee grounds, filled with coffee custard and topped with a sweet coffee glaze and a light dusting of coffee grounds)
I guess there’s always next time.
Oh and Crosstown has one last reminder:
“Be a doughnut in a world full of cupcakes.”
