Fritelli's through the eyes of a doughnut-disliker (and photos)

Okay, I really don't like doughnuts. To get me to eat a Krispy Kreme's, you'd have to either pay or starve me. But I had to try Fritelli's, just out of curiosity and because my friend made me eat a terrible doughnut the other night.

In a nutshell: the place is adorable and the business cards are original, but...they're doughnuts. I appreciate the use of real apples and quality cinnamon, but it's still just fried dough. Cold fried dough at that. I'm sure there are local holes in the wall that make fresh, warm doughnuts better than Fritelli's, but I'm not enough of a fan to seek them out.

If you love doughnuts, you'd probably be happy to pay the $1 for a unique flavor (gingerbread, pumpkin, latte, peppermint, etc.) but if you don't like doughnuts Fritelli's isn't going to convert you.
