Whoo's Donuts, Santa Fe: fancy organic donuts from the Chocolate Smith people

finlero | Oct 25, 201109:58 AM     1

Recently got to try a few donuts from Whoo's, the new organic locavore donut shop (I feel like perhaps "shoppe" is more apt) started by the owners of the Chocolate Smith in the space next door, on Cerrillos right near the big Whole Foods.

Pleasant, bright space, smallish, with a few tables to sit at.

Clever, tasty, upscale combinations (chocolate,dulce de leche, and sea salt filled with cream; orange and apricot glazed; toasted pistachio), with both raised and cake options. As good as the toppings and fillings were, unfortunately I thought the raised donut dough itself wasn't quite moist enough inside, or quite crunchy enough outside. That said, the toppings and fillings were tasty and innovative enough that it wasn't a deal breaker.

They also brew NM's own Fat Boy Coffee (from down the street in Cedar Crest). Standard adequate gourmet-style coffee, typically slightly burnt and light on body, but nothing repugnant.

At $2.25/donut (and $2.25 for a large coffee), don't go expecting Dunkin' Donuts prices, but considering the quality of the ingredients, the prices aren't beyond the pale either.

I probably won't be falling over myself to hustle back, but I'd be glad to go again, Whoo's is a nice addition to the Santa Fe breakfast scene.
