Annie’s Donut Shop
Review by: Michael Stern
There are many deluxe donuts in Portland, even Goth donuts (at Voodoo Donuts), but for traditional donuts that go with morning coffee (not latte!), Annie’s is a treasure. They’re made here daily, and the variety is tremendous.
Old-fashioned cake donuts have the double-circle shape so popular in the Northwest that provides nearly twice the crunchy exterior of a simple round one. Glazed and maple-frosted OFs are especially satisfying, and although the price is plebeian, the taste and mouth feel are aristocratic.
Cream puffs are light and impeccably fresh-flavored, the only way a cream puff ever should be.
The wickedest variety is a fritter – unctuous, super-sweet, slightly fruity, and monumentally filling.
Annie’s has none of the amenities of upscale coffee and donut shops: no art on the walls, no wi-fi, no couches or lounge chairs and, of course, no barristas. You sit in molded plastic booths that look out on the parking lot and are served by a staff with no attitude other than pride in the donuts they make and sell.
