I am not a fan of doughnuts as I do not quite like that much sugar in my food. However, Lucky’s Doughnuts subverted all expectations and because I have only eaten Tim Horton’s donuts as comparison, have become my favourite doughnuts. The coffee, I’m not a connoisseur, that’s my friend Teng and she enjoyed 49th Parallel’s coffee very much. For me, it was just pretty coffee with latte art. Like so:
Yeah, but what more important for me were the donuts. Now, I found them pricey (but then everything is pricey for a student) but oh they were so worth the price.
“Coconut pastry cream-filled doughnut topped with toasted meringue and coconut.” That’s the official description from the website and oh my gawd, it was so good. I love coconut–I’m from Fiji, it’s difficult not to. And this donut was the realization of all my coconut wishes. So delicious.
We also got the PB&J. It has a jam filling with peanut butter topping. It is not too sweet and the pastry portion is just soft and spongy. It was a party in my mouth until it was gone and I was sad.
If you are ever looking for delicious doughnuts, try out Parallel 49th. They have locations all over the city so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding one.
