No artisan donuts here. No wi-fi, no baristas, no $5 lattes. Westernco is an old-school donut shop, open at 4am, armed with boxes for dozens to go, serving coffee just two ways (16- or 20-ounce), and offering a broad array of honest sinkers at $1 apiece.

We like the French crullers, which are light and eggy, available glazed or frostedĀ  with chocolate or vanilla. A sour cream round filled with raspberries is a mighty pastry, the equivalent of at least a couple of ordinary donuts .

Maple is a popular frosting in this part of the world, and, sure enough, a maple-frosted raised ring is a thing of gnarled beauty.

Beyond sweet pastries, Westernco offers a limited selection of pigs in blankets, bacon/cheese buns and croissants, and bagel sandwiches.

There are a few tables for dining in, but most business is take-out.
