I went to Diane's Bakery to get donuts on Sat. and was surprised not to see them in the cases (second time in a few weeks). The older man who bakes was out there along witih the woman at the cash register and I said "no donuts?", he grunted no and went back to the kitchen. She said no sorry, I said you didn't have them last time either and it sounds like he's not making them at all anymore. I guess it was a Sat. thing (have never gone on a weekday) and she was very apologetic but offered nothing more after I said how good their donuts were. I'm very sad cuz I really think these were the best in the Boston area, right amount of grease, crunch, etc. And actually cheaper than all the rest too (only .60 or .65). I hope other regulars are complaining. I did get to try a plain donut from Jim's Bagels and Bake shop in Gloucester this weekend and that was pretty good, hard to evaluate fully since I got it a couple hours after the fact. Have had their bagels before and they're quite good too.
The other Rozzy bummer is that kind of divey bar w/ pool tables as you enter the square on the right seems to have been "renovated" and gotten rid of their beveled glass. I'm so bummed about this, there's something about that look that I love. The west coast knows how to preserve it, and they make better donuts but that's another story. I was driving so only quickly noticed that and what looks like a new sign. They should be tarred and feathered.
