Richard's Donuts - Bend Oregon
Richards Donuts & PastriesOn my nominations for Gusto's "Best of" list, Jake disagreed with my Best Donut suggestion. He said "Doughnuts: Sweethearts has NOTHING on Richard's Doughnuts. Those things are like crack."
Righard's Donuts are like crack! Not that I've had much crack lately...I'm more of a Black Tar kind of guy. I went out of my way Sunday morning to find Richard's on Hwy 97. I selected a mixed dozen as well as a dozen donut holes.
The donut holes are a steal at $1.75 for a dozen. You can polish off a dozen of these bad boys over a cup of joe. These little nuggets of pure heaven are the closest thing to a Krispy Kreme donut that I've ever come across. They just melted in my mouth.
The rest of the donuts were very good. The dough was light and the frostings were perfectly sweetened. Yummy all around. I will agree with Jake, Richard's has some killer donuts. However, I did pay about twice as much as I did at Sweethearts.
Now that I've tried Richard's, I'll have to give Sweethearts another go in order to compare more accurately.
