Le Cave's

1219 S. 6th Ave., Tucson, AZ - (520) 624-2561
Le Cave’s is a bakery that has been around forever (actually, since 1935); and it is known for two things: decorated cakes and donuts. We recommend the chocolate-frosted, maple-frosted, powdered-sugar, and cinnamon-sugar varieties.

At about 8am, these apple fritters were still almost too hot to hold. Dotted with plenty of syrupy fruit and yet lightweight in its sheath of sugar, one of these babies only stimulated appetite for more.
