I’ve been waking up super early for the last couple of weeks and was looking forward to sleeping in on Wednesday or so I thought. All it took was a message from a *trusted palate to change my plans for my midweek nap-fest.
Surprisingly, my wife Marcela was up for waking up early to make the drive to Bake Shack in Dania Beach. I wanted to make sure we arrived near opening time (7AM) since I knew they’re only open till 3PM and wanted to ensure the Donuts were not sold out.
After a 30 minute drive and a bunch of unnecessary toll charges on I-95 we arrived a few minutes after seven (alright 9 minutes actually). Our friend Tony who owns HipPOPs‘ HQ is right around the corner so I text him to meet us there. He’s already here when we walk in and I’m mesmerized by the Donuts. I can’t really decide so I go the rather safe route of a Glazed, Maple Bacon and an Apple Fritter trio.
They’ve got some sandwiches, Breakfast dishes and a Burger on the lunch side of the menu. For some reason, these two decide to get some California Sandwich which includes Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado, and an Egg……Lettuce & Tomato for Breakfast? No thank you.
I do the only sensible thing and order their Breakfast Sandwich which brings Eggs, Cheese and your choice of Sausage or Bacon or in my case Sausage AND Bacon. So here’s the kicker, it’s served on “Donut Bread” which was a nice touch but maybe a light glaze on the top bun might be an even better idea.
There are no faults to find with these Donuts. They’re nice, airy, light and flavorful. The Glazed Donut took home my award for best of the day but I really should have given the Bacon Chocolate Donut a shot, it looked like a possible contender.
I enjoyed the Breakfast and Donuts so I need to return to try their Burger. If it’s half as good as everything else then we’ve got a winner on our hands South Florida.
P.S.: I forgot to mention I had a Latte and it was very good.
