Like Santa Claus, Bavarian cream donuts are round, possess gelatinous centers, and unexpectedly cause stockings to expand. Delight in other doughy treats with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of donuts and pastries at The Donut Professor. Choose from four Omaha-area locations: S. 71st Street, N. 147th Street, Elkhorn, or LaVista.
The Donut Professor uses locally sourced ingredients to create fresh donuts, pastries, and muffins every morning. With 37 varieties of donuts ($0.99 each; $9.29 per dozen) ranging from garden-variety glazed to elusive vanilla peanut, The Donut Professor offers a full catalog of fried, doughy treats. Éclairs, fritters, and cinnamon rolls ($1.19) satisfy partisans of pastries without holes. All locations open at 6 a.m., mere minutes after fresh donuts come into being, giving night-based vigilantes and day-faring caped heroes a place to eat while comparing notes. If the full amount of the Groupon is not used in one visit, The Donut Professor will issue a gift card with the remaining balance.
