The Fine Print

The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as donuts. Today's Groupon provides the ideal culinary camouflage: for $7, you get a dozen raised donuts from Scott's Pastry Shoppe (a $15 value). Though Scott's used to have three locations, two of them mysteriously vanished during a meteor shower, leaving only the University Avenue location to carry the pastry torch.

The family-owned and family-operated pastry palace has been serving up fresh-made delicacies assembled on-site daily since 1982. The raised donuts are a particularly puffy take on the dough-ring classic, and the yeast-filled version at Scott's results in a soft, pillowy wedding ring for giants. Mix and match a rotating selection of flavors, which include everything from classic white and chocolate to embellishments such as maple, turtle, and apple-fritter flavors (premium raised donuts are an additional $0.50). Craft a custom donut collection, which can later be worn around the neck to ward off sugar-fearing dentists.

As Scott's bakes its goods on-site, the bakery pipes the fresh scent of newborn breads, donuts, and cakes into the surrounding atmosphere, hypnotically drawing unsuspecting citizens into the cozy confines. The friendly staff will help indecisive desserters decide on their ideal donut combination, and the raised indoor porch overlooking University Avenue provides a breezy perch from which to toss down some donuts.
