Donut Crazy

Review by: Michael Stern

The ordinary cinnamon donuts at Donut Crazy are very good indeed: dense, creamy, and crisp-skinned; but the name of the place is a good hint that ordinary donuts are not the kitchen’s forte. No, indeed. Take, for instance, the Fat Elvis: that’s a big, wholeless sinker with gobs of banana cream in its center and a frosting of peanut butter, banana slices, bits of bacon, and chocolate. Slightly less baroque is the Maple Bacon donut, which is a regular-shaped circle and comes topped with a maple glaze and an absolutely amazing amount of crisp bacon. “Out of this world,” is how tipster Johanna Greenfield described the latter when she insisted I go to Shelton and eat the donuts.

The Fat Elvis and the Maple Bacon donut are “special appearance” items, not necessarily always available. For them, you will pay $2.75 apiece – no bargain, but not highway robbery either, considering that one of these really is a nice-size breakfast. Regular donuts, fritters, jelly sticks, and crullers are $1.50 each.

There actually are a few items other than donuts in this short-order shop that offers some inside seating but caters mostly to the take-out crowd. I very much enjoyed fresh-squeezed OJ and decent coffee, and the menu board also offers breakfast sandwiches (including a grilled cheese donut!), cupcakes, cookies, and muffins.

While Donut Crazy does not look like an interesting restaurant from the road — it is located in a strip mall across from the Sports Center of Connecticut — it is a happy place with a big, silly sign above the dining room that declares “LET’S EAT DONUTS!” A second Donut Crazy is located at 3690 Main Street in Stratford, CT. 203-386-1999. And another shares space with Nom Eez Vietnamese reestaurant at 2992 Fairfield Ave., Bridgeport. 203-923-8686.
