In what has become a sea of Parisian hamburger joints, there is now, at long last, a real doughnut shop. Doughnuts fresh-baked every 2 hours from morning 'til evening by pastry-chef-trained Amanda Bankert who owns the shop with her Irish husband. Mid-mornings and at about 4pm in the afternoons, expect a line out the door for these hot, fresh bundles of doughy, sugary joy. Dark chocolate and craft stout. I thought that might get your attention! That is just one of the tasty-creative doughnut flavors, this one's called Hoppy Days, that Amanda has come up with for her pastry-doughnut classics. Another one is Sweet Virginia which has maple icing and salted peanut brittle bits sprinkled on top. Some of the flavors are staples and some are seasonal like the St. Paddy's bright green lucky charm icing doughnut or the matcha green tea flavored icing doughnuts. The size of these guys are American-style, too. More than a handful, one of these will fill you up but if you buy two, or two dozen, you'll get to taste more of the flavors. Oh and her densely chocolate-y brownies just won Best of Paris recently, too. So be sure to get one of those for your bedtime snack. Wink, wink.
- 2nd Arrondissement - Montorgueil's Best Restaurants: "These doughnuts are vegan, by the way. Boneshaker uses non-hydrogenated vegetable fats and no chemical additives so, if you can believe it, they are guilt-free, as well as cruelty-free, doughnuts. And they come in flavors such as Sweet Virginia and Hoppy Days, in other words, sugary, doughy bliss."
- Best for 2nd Arrondissement - Montorgueil's Best Restaurants Because: Paris has its first real doughnut shop. And if you're wondering whether they're any good, judge by the line trailing out the door every afternoon!
