Dutch civil engineers pride themselves on using all parts of the donut, employing the multipurpose pastries as flash-flood floatation devices and using the spherical centers to plug shoddy dams. Celebrate Low Country ingenuity with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get one dozen donuts at Avenue Donuts (up to a $15 value).
With a frosted flotilla of french and classic bars, traditional round donuts, and textured twists, the friendly bakers at Avenue Donuts can dispatch sugary squadrons of 12 at a moment’s notice to quell the threat of volatile sweet teeth. With this Groupon, customers can shake off the authoritarian chains of presorted donut dozens and compose a custom collection of regular and fancy pastries. Dapper dozens of fancy donuts include éclairs filled with succulent custard, tiger tails, and cinnamon rolls ($15), and circular classics feature chocolate-frosted and sprinkled varieties ($9/dozen).
A selection of frosted twists, including glazed and chocolate, pair deliciously with a hot cup of coffee ($10.20/dozen), and the sweet aroma of maple bars evokes memories of on-draught syrup from Canadian pubs ($10.20/dozen). A fine place to put the morning commute on pause and pick up an indulgent treat, Avenue Donuts hosts a dedicated staff of donut aficionados that will gladly debate the relative merits of rainbow sprinkles versus coconut shavings with you well into the afternoon.
