How you can get your very own made-to-order donut at Daddy’s Doughnuts

When you walk into Daddy’s Doughnuts there are menu cards available at the door. This is where the magic happens! You get to be the creator of your made-to-order doughnut. There are options at the top of the card for 12 doughnuts available in a variety of signature flavors or you have the option to design your own with a very wide variety of different toppings and drizzles.

The steps for designing your made-to-order Daddy’s Doughnut is simple! First off, you start with a warm vanilla doughnut then:

  1. Choose your doughnut coating.
  2. Choose your doughnut drizzle.
  3. Choose your doughnut topping.

I have all of the flavor options listed down below if it is too hard to see on the photo of the menu card. Once you place your order you can watch your donut creation come to life! It was fun to watch my custom donuts being made.

One drawback

For me, there was only one little drawback that came to mind while typing up this Daddy’s Doughnuts review. That is that there is no seating available inside this donut shop. I know that many donut shops are grab-and-go but this is the type of establishment that I actually wouldn’t mind hanging out in for a while with my family. I wouldn’t mind having them pour me a cup of coffee to go with my donuts. I am only pointing this out so that my readers are aware that you will have to take your donuts to-go.

Daddy's Doughnuts is already counting down the days until National Doughnut Day!

What’s next for me at Daddy’s Doughnuts

I am most certainly going to be stopping in again at this establishment for some more donuts and smiles! I have never in my life had a donut with bacon on it and I will be ordering a maple/bacon donut, for sure, next time I come in! The Key Lime Pie donut also sounds like a winner for me! I am also intrigued by their Strawberry Shortcake donut. This is the place to be if you are bored with your regular glazed donuts. Stop in at Daddy’s Doughnuts if you want to try out some adventurous, new donut flavors!
