Dear Fellow Foodophiles,
A few weeks ago, we posted and asked for recommendations on where to have our wedding in SF (we live in NYC). We appreciated all of your responses & LOVED your recs although we didn't have enough time for all of them. Fast forward: we found a fabulous place (Boulettes Larder) and now are in need of your recommendations for...doughnuts!
Let me start by saying that in NYC, the doughnut (not to mention the carne asada burrito) is NON EXISTENT!! I am from San Diego where the doughnut is a given. Like pizza in NYC, even if its bad, its pretty darn good. I grew up on doughnuts. The varieties in texture, density & flavor are the Saturday morning memories that my brother and I will always relate to our childhood of the 70's. From old fashioned buttermilk (glazed & chocolate) to apple fritters to bear claws to french crullers to maple bars, I am a monster when it comes to doughnuts!
So, now that we've found the perfect place for our reception, we now have details to consider. We will be back in SF in a few weeks and are on a mission. Among other details, we need a great wedding cake. We've had lousy wedding cake and decent wedding cake. What would be better than a DOUGHNUT WEDDING CAKE???
Problem is, I'm from San Diego. We need recs for doughnuts in SF! I know they are out there, but where?? Given the info on us and my rather demanding criteria, can you help?
Thanks in advance.
