We had just finished lunch at this Brazilian place called Quitutes, and were hankering something sweet for dessert. I rarely get into St. Bernard Parish but had heard good things about this donut places, so we headed over for a dozen to bring home.
Now, it was about 2:00 PM when we walked in the door. A lot of donut places make ALL of their donuts very early in the morning. So if you want fresh donuts, get there after 10:00 AM and you’re out of luck. As the day progresses, you get staler and staler donuts. I figured we’d get semi-fresh donuts at 2:00 PM.
The glazed donuts looked great! The lady that waited on us told us they just came out the fryer about 15 minutes ago. I couldn’t believe it, but after tasting them, I believed her. They were fresh and delicious! So were the Boston Cream Pie and blueberry cake donuts we bought.
I checked their website and saw they say they’re famous for having fresh donuts 24 hours a day. And they make king cakes year round! That’s good to know because after the Mardi Gras season is over I hate waiting until winter to get my next king cake.
They serve regular food too. So if you’re ever in the mood to play video poker, and grab a burger, donuts and a beer at 3:00 AM, this is the place for you!
