Annie's Donuts

Annie's Donuts is located at the corner of NE 72nd and Sandy Blvd in Portland, Oregon. This has long been one of the top doughnut spots to hit up in Portland, and I finally made my way here in late August.

Unlike the ridiculous lines one may likely see at Voodoo Doughnut, there's generally not much of a wait when heading to Annie's. And all the yummy treats are still made fresh daily.

I was told that the maple bars and the apple fritters are among the most popular choices. With no more maple bars left in the display case at 12 p.m. on a Sunday (serves me right for coming late to the party), I got an apple fritter for $1.10.

Apple Fritter
A top-notch fritter that was soft on the inside. A sugary shell on the exterior, yet not too sweet. I saw a few diced apples inside. Damn right. A good-sized fritter for the price.

Speaking of which, all the prices are very reasonable, ranging from the 60-cent plain cake doughnuts to the $1.10 fritters, cinnamon rolls, and bear claws. FYI, maple bars are 89 cents. Hey, if you can keep my wallet happy with these prices, that alone should go a long way in getting me to return.

Small coffees are still 75 cents here. Did we turn back the clock somewhere? I'd be hard-pressed to find places that sell a small cup for less than a buck anymore.

Annie's opens at 5 a.m. and closes by 1 p.m. on the weekends. And of course, I picked the weekend to visit because it's panda logic. Otherwise, Annie's is open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Glad I finally tried Annie's. It's a very solid place to get doughnuts and coffee in Portland. Can't wait to come back and get more sweet treats! 8.75/10
