While looking through the Hubble Telescope leaves the indelible print of the universe's majesty on the mind, looking through a donut leaves frosting on the face. Sugarcoat the world with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of donuts at D Square Donuts in Auburn. The shop is only open from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. Tuesday–Friday (7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday), ensuring that baked goods are never more than four hours old.
With blazing ovens, scratch-made glazes, and a flotilla of fillings, the donut architects at D Square Donuts defy and embrace convention daily by offering a menu of square sweets and traditional round cakes. Satisfy quadratic cravings with boxy baked treats packed with sweet key-lime filling or sprinkled with coconut shavings from formerly bearded palm trees ($0.85 each, $8.50 a dozen). Delectable dozens unite pastry prisms and hoops in the same package, allowing taste buds to enjoy four-cornered glazed and cocoa-coated, death-by-chocolate treats. Orders of donut holes recycle recently extracted cores to create spherical confections ideal for bite-sized snacking or teaching one's tongue to juggle ($1.85).
