Every town has that great doughnut shop that keeps odd hours and sells amazing inventive doughnuts. Just ask Dutch, there is a Donut Hole bakery and diner almost walking distance from her door. I have to drive a bit further for something creative, living in the city we are overrun with chain shops calling at you from the street with that glowing red neon “Hot Now” sign. Currently Knoxville is in what I like to call a cupcake renaissance, selling overpriced designer cupcakes that are smaller than a regular slice of cake. Bigger cities are catching on to this boutique doughnut movement though and Chicago is no different, The Doughnut Vault keeps with tradition opening early and closing when they sell out.
