Wow! We stood in line at Voodoo Donut, but you can save yourself the wait in line and come here instead. They don't have the trendy-edgy glitz of Voodoo, but the donuts are better and less expensive. We had the apple fritter, old fashioned, buttermilk bar, and butterfly, a yeast donut with peanut butter and chocolate icing. Everything was fantastic. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but this place is the real deal.

At sixty cents apiece, a trio of old-fashioned donuts makes a fine under-$2 breakfast (plus $1 for a large coffee). Annie's have a wicked crunch to their gnarly skin and rich, cakey insides. Pictured here are glazed, maple, and chocolate.

Raspberry fritters are large and substantial with a naughty taste that is hard to resist. The raised, sugar-coated donut on the right is, by comparison, a featherweight.

Starbuck's, this place is not! It is an old-style urban donut shop with low-low prices and terrific made-fresh pastries.

The sign in the window is no idle boast. Portland is a major donut town, and any serious donut-eating tour must include Annie's.

We were skeptical when we ordered a cream puff. At all of 90 cents, we suspected the filling would be unbearably ersatz. While it may not be 40% butterfat Jersey cattle double cream, the white stuff in the tender pastry is fresh and utterly agreeable.

There is a counter inside facing the kitchen, but seats in Annie's booths afford a nice view of the parking lot through large glass windows.
