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.

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.
