Donut Shop Cafe Coming Soon!

It is common knowledge I am a doughnut connoisseur. My love for doughnuts is known far and wide in my household.  Let me shock you: I don't believe the Jackson metro area has many good doughnut places.  Or, at least no place sells doughnuts near as melt-in-your-mouth good as the old Canton Bakery on the Square.  

To my unending sadness, the Canton Bakery went the way of the dinosaur, and its like has not since been seen.  In my humble opinion, nowadays, the best bet for doughnuts is Shipley's in Clinton, then the Donut Shop Cafe in Richland, then Daily Made in Brandon, then Krispy Kreme, then Daylight Donuts, and finally a conglomeration of Donut Palace, Pillow Donuts, Monroe and Scurlock Donuts that all taste the same.

Living at the Reservoir, I suffer from in a constant state of Good Doughnut Desiderata, commonly referred to as "GDT". However, while driving home from Brandon proper the other day, I noticed something that made my heart happy.  A Donut Shop Cafe is "coming soon" to the brand new gas station at the corner of Hwy 471 and Vine/Baker Lane.  Now (fingers crossed), the drive for a good doughnut won't take so long.

Not necessarily convenient to the Rez, but have you tried Donut Factory on Highway 80 in Pearl? IMHO, they're the best around.

Oh, Troy! You should have given up your day job long ago and opened your OWN donut place! Though, I must say, The Donut Factory in Pearl has hard to beat donuts...

I'm driving to The Donut Factory tomorrow morning. They better not be Dunkin' quality. ;-)

Well, are we going to get a review on the Donut Factory?

I tried the Donut Shop Cafe this morning and was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of their donuts. Especially the fact that you can choose your flavor filling for your eclair and they'll go back and fill it right then! I can't wait to go back for breakfast. I was searching for their website or fb page and found you instead. I hope you'll give them a try.
