On the front page of the Mercury News this morning (see link). Lou's has been in business since 1955 and is closing at the end of this month due to family illness. A loyal customer may continue to make the recipes and relocate, but it won't be the same.
I've only been once but felt a special something there. I ache for a tender pumpkin donut (possibly seasonal) before they shut their doors. For fans, please share your favorites and stories. For those who haven't been, go while you still have a chance.
