Mrs. Murphy’s Donuts

Review by: Michael Stern

Once you’ve had a real sinker at the counter of Mrs. Murphy’s Donuts, you can never go back to junk-food donuts.

What to eat at Mrs. Murphy’s Donuts

All kinds are available and displayed on shelves behind the cash register: Boston cream, jelly-filled, iced, and jimmie-sprinkled. The kinds we recommend, especially for those in search of the Platonic-ideal donut, are plain or sour cream. They are the simplest pastries imaginable: sturdy circles with a good crunch to their skin and creamy-soft insides. No dunkable donut ever matched so well with multiple cups of coffee.

Mrs. Murphy’s Donuts are so respected in and around Manchester that several retail establishments sell them; but it’s best to get them at the source, especially early in the morning. Walk in to the eatery at dawn and you will see a dough-si-donut line of dunkers sitting on the rows of stools at the counter bobbing theirs in and out of mugs.
