I was running late to a meeting at the Merchandise Mart the other day when I noticed a line of people wrapped around the corner of a building just north of there (it also happens to be right across the street from our old place - sniffle!). There wasn't a sign hanging outside, so I first thought it was a sample sale for Haute Living or something similar that would warrant a long line on a weekday morning. I noticed a woman with a box that had a big donut stamped on top and went on my way. After the meeting, I decided to check out The Donut Vault. This is what I walked out with:
They had 6 donuts left & they all happened to be chocolate (my favorite). I snapped one up, only slightly gasped at the $3+ price tag, and walked out with my gooey delight. I took a bite. It was heavenly. I tried to tell myself that I would eat half now and the rest after my next meeting was done. With glaze so smooth it was sliding right off the top, I devoured the entire thing while sitting in my car on the side of a pretty busy street. Yep, I was that person.
If you can't tell, I highly recommend this place! They open at 8:30 am and close when they're sold out. I think it was pretty rare that there were still donuts left at 10:45, so you'll either have to go early & wait in line or take your chances. It is worth it!
p.s. just realized that they spell it "doughnut" whereas I've been writing "donut". How you do spell the word for these "deliciousnesses"?
