Lemon custard donut, too!

I posted previously about the Hopkins Street Bakery, now firmly under new ownership, having lucious handmade donuts with raspberry filling that tasted like the donuts of yore, not like your average made-from-a-commercial-mix donut. Now they have added lemon with a white sugar glaze (not too much, either.) It's also $1.50 and worth every scrumptious penny since it weighs a good bit more than others do. Just pulling the donut apart since the dog needed his 1/2, I could see the dough pull like real yeast dough.

They also have bombolinos for $1.75 but I think the custard isn't vanilla enough. It would be a kick if they upped the flavor a notch. And also if they made a slightly rum-flavored one. Unfortunately, no place to sit but outside and it was cold this am. But with their quite respectable coffee and a head of steam from walking 5 miles, the donuts really hit the spot.
