Chelsea, New York has Doughnut Plant. Atlanta, Georgia has Revolution Doughnuts. I must admit: I’m new to the doughnut-scene. I like to think I’m a girl who appreciates classics; In-N-Out’s fresh hand-cut potatoes will forever be my preferred fast-food fries and Krispy-Kreme’s hot light app is the latest addition to my mobile library. You must imagine how overwhelmed I feel to have recently discovered the wondrous variety of colors and flavors the contemporary doughnut-scene has to offer. Furthermore, French goodies, both sweet and savory, have inspired the most fascinating of flavors. NYC’s Doughnut Plant invented the world’s first “Crème Brûlée” doughnut, meanwhile Revolution Doughnuts has introduced the savory classic, le croque-monsieur, as the “Savory Crunchy Mister” doughnut.
Apart from the “French connection,” Revolution Doughnuts provides incredible options for their customers, including: yeast style, filled rounds, fritters, cake style, baked cake, big ol’ doughnut, and mini doughnuts. The Drink and Espresso Bar serves house-made tea, local organic Cabbagetown Chai, Tazo Teas, and hot cocoa! What’s as equally exciting as the variety of doughnuts is the consideration Revolution has for their customers. Can you believe their dark chocolate, orange pistachio, raspberry sprinkle, and true blueberry doughnuts are all vegan?!
The doughnut and coffee shop located on College Avenue in Decatur, Georgia is the sweetest escape. The vintage accents in the décor, not to mention the “gallery” of doughnuts, incite picturesque reveries that are realized the moment you take that first bite. Unfortunately for the college students at Agnes Scott College just down the street, Revolution does not offer free wifi. Fortunately for us all, these dynamite flavors are the best distraction and indulgence.
