PostHeaderIcon Donut Dreams in Sacramento – Drool Worthy!

Dreaming of Donuts in Sacramento?  (by Lisa Frank)

Raised, glazed or crazed, donuts in their many forms are once again glamorous.  The lowly fried hunk of dough has recently been elevated to the ranks of the highfalutin croissant with a bastardization called the cronut (trademarked name FYI) or the dosant or doughssant.  The buttery goodness of a flakey croissant with the deep fried crunch of a donut, it might be what has been missing in your life.  It could be another fad like the donut hole craze (there are cronut holes too) or the ill-fated expansion of the South’s beloved Krispy Kreme franchise (there are still a few around), but then again, donuts have been around in one form or another since at least the 1800’s so they clearly have staying power.

Sacramento’s donut scene is clearly keeping up with players in the big cities.  So here is where to fill the need for all that yummy, fried goodness, whatever country it originated in.

Donut meet Happy Hour:  Ella’s has a Fried Brioche, with Bourbon Butterscotch Glaze and Candied Almond Dust.  How can that not be good?  And for only $5 during their award-winning happy hour menu – order me up 2 batches, please!  Okay while not technically a donut, it is fried dough so counts in my book.  Ella Dining Room, 1131 K Street (Corner of 12th & K Street, Valet parking available), Sacramento. Happy Hour Monday thru Friday 3pm to 6pm.

Estelle’s Patisserie supports TGIF.  Check out their Doughnut Fridays with a filled brioche donut, or Croixnut Tuesdays AND Sundays.  With flavors like Vanilla Earl Grey, Salted Caramel or Cinnamon Sugar, your taste buds will thank you.  If you want to dream donuts all day, visit their mouth-watering Facebook page where they post their amazing croixnut and donut “fresh out of the oven” photos.  This is where you can keep up to date what their flavors of the week are!  Estelle’s Patisserie, 901 K Street (9th and K Streets), Sacramento.

What Folks are Saying!

We took the Murphy's tour on Saturday with Shelby. It was great fun. A good balance between food, wine and shopping. Shelby told us about the history of Murphy's but we also got to know who's who in the wine and restaurant business today. Good behind the scenes info. Loved the olive oil & balsamic vinegar store. The owners of the shops were happy to see us and treated us well. Highly recommended.
