Fox’s Donut Den in Nashville, Tennessee


Fox’s Donut Den (3900 Hillsboro Pike) was just a hop, skip, and a jump from our hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. I drove by a couple of times, waiting for a parking spot to open up near the entrance.

When I finally walked in, there was a line to place my order. I usually steer clear of lines, but now, after the fact, was it worth waiting in line? Hell yeah!

Kolache Talk

After investigating the term Kolache and the variation Klobásník earlier in the week, I was excited to see a cheddar sausage version at Fox’s Donut Den. But, unfortunately, my caveman mind called them super-sized pigs in blankets until that point.

While this tasty snack’s origins go back to the Czech Republic, many believe this sausage version first appeared in Texas. However, how it became a popular item on donut shop menus is unknown.

Next up was my homeboy, the apple fritter. The first thing I look for when I’m at a donut shop is the apple fritters. I don’t care for apples in their original form but slice them, cinnamon sugar them up, and I’m your guy.

I unexpectedly ordered a half dozen donuts in very monotone colors. I’m not into donuts covered in cereals, candies, and cookies.

A perfectly made old-fashioned or glazed donut is my choice on any day of the week.

Also, I guess I wasn’t feeling very chocolaty at the moment.

The apple fritter was the winner in my book at Fox’s Donut Den, followed closely by the old-fashioned cake donut. As for the Kolache, wieners rules, don’t cha think?
