When I search for the best donuts in Portland on Chowhound, a few places come up that have very little (or no) description of the actual donuts: Staccato Gelato, Sesame, Acme, Heavenly. Assuming Portland Chowhounds think any/all of these places are good, I'd love to know more about why. What are the donuts like in terms of texture, selection of flavors, etc? And what is your favorite thing to order if you're a regular?
The reason I'm asking is that we're working on a new Chowhound List for Portland, and these places came up repeatedly....but there's little more information. Do you think Sesame, Acme, Staccato, or Heavenly should be included? If so, why?
For some examples of other recent Chowhound lists, see:
