Donuts are all the rage these days and we are happily on the donut bandwagon (bye-bye cupcakes). We love the Doughnut Plant in New York City and consider ourselves super lucky to have Dynamo Donuts right in our backyard. Another must-try on our list is Voodoo Donuts in Portland.
We often trek to Dynamo in the Mission for a fix of these very gourmet and unique donuts. Being in this part of the Mission and at Dynamo feels like taking a vacation in our own city. The little storefront opens into a large kitchen/workspace where you can watch the donuts being made. The wall behind the seats is lined with donut themed kids books. Who knew there were so many?

Grab a book and on a nice day head back to the patio/garden with the kiddos. The last time we were there, the sun was out in it’s full glory and it was a comfortably warm day. The bees and butterflies were buzzing about the garden and it was one of those days that makes you think, “Life is good. Especially, if I can sit in this beautiful back garden and share a kaffir-lime coconut donut with my favorite little person.”
Dynamo has some pretty unique flavors like bacon maple apple (haven’t gathered the courage to try this though I have heard it is fantastic), spiced chocolate (Ria liked this one) and cornmeal rosemary cherry, just to name a few. The flavors change daily and the toughest part is deciding which donuts to get because the next time you come, that particular flavor might not be on the menu.
I can’t wait to take Stacie and Luca to this little spot. It is right up Stacie’s alley and Luca is a dessert-eating machine and is going to love it!
