Good news!

Posted by chrisgwinn on August 8, 2008

Yes, yes, friends are getting engaged and the packers are getting screwed, but there’s one piece of very important news that trumps all of that!

Dunkin Donuts may be returning to Minnesota!

When I moved here, there were a few things that I just couldn’t reliably find and that I missed terribly.  Most of those were eventually resolved, but there was a big hole in my life with a smaller hole in the middle, fillable only with east coast style cake donuts.  I especially like the chocolate and peanut ones.

Lone Donut Cafe plugged that hole for a while (as anyone who worked with me at MarketWatch knows), but they closed.  They closed shortly after I left MarketWatch, actually.  I wonder if we were keeping them in business.

Not that there aren’t great donuts here.  I’ve mentioned Mel-O-Glaze before, and A Baker’s Wife has some fantastic donuts.  World’s Best Donuts in Grand Marais is great, but isn’t the sort of place I can stop by on my way to work.

Sorry, Donut Connection on Lyndale, you suck.  You’re like the pale reflection of a shadow of a Dunkin Donuts.  I hope they return and drive you from the city.  Maybe North Dakota needs a crappy donut shop.

And, because I’ve been waiting for a chance to use this picture, here’s a picture of Zoe in the World’s Best Donuts viking photo cutout:
