The Oakleigh Doughnut Co, Oakleigh, Melbourne
For a blog called Donutsam, there’s an alarming lack of actual reviews on donuts (or doughnuts). That will all change with one recent evening excursion out to Oakleigh. We would be visiting The Oakleigh Doughnut Co to sample their highly Instagrammable confections. The store’s open until 10pm and you’ll definitely leave on a sugar high.
Hole in one
The Oakleigh Doughnut Co has a tasty looking feed that showcases it’s wild range of flavours and ideas. Even us visiting just a few hours before closing we were still treated with a good selection of flavours. And not so many to make me think they made too many either. The store’s in the hub of Oakleigh and it’s easy to spot with its bright lights and sugary scents.
There’s quite a few vegan options but we went for a regular (but not ordinary) mix including white chocolate, custard sugar, baklava and rose! There were a mix of filled and iced, and for a single donut you’d be looking at the $4.50 mark. A box of six gets you a bit of a discount, it’s six donuts for $24 there.
Sugar, I’m coming home
Wisely, when we got home we quartered each donut; so we got to sample a bit of everything. My favourite was the sugar custard filled, and that seemed to be the consensus in our flat at least! I’m not such a baklava fan so that was a bit more meh to me, but they were all pretty good. The white chocolate one has real white chocolate rather than a flavoured frosting, you can tell there’s quality when it comes to the ingredients.
It’s definitely worth checking The Oakleigh Doughnut Co – tasty, tasty stuff. It’s a full on treat so pace yourselves wisely 🙂
