My happy place is anywhere with a donut.
Happy hump day! We have all made it this far, so let's not give up yet. But sometimes we need a little extra to keep us going... How about a coffee? Or a donut? Or how about BOTH?
Short Stop is the perfect place to make a quick stop for - you guessed it - coffee and donuts! They have specialty coffee on offer on rotation, as well classic and limited edition donuts like Triple Matcha, Maple & Brown Butter, and flavours of the month that's whatever is in season, or whatever the masterminds in the kitchen feel like whipping up for you...
The staff are always smiley and friendly, and the gentleman behind the counter making the coffee is always up for conversation if you're that way inclined. His coffee is top notch by the way!
This little donut shop in Barangaroo is my safe haven away from my home. I'm here at least once a week, spending my dinner allowances on delicious whole foods, or rather "hole-foods"...
"Is it donut? Or doughnut? I do-nut care..."
Today I ate the Lemon, Polenta and Rosemary donut
Short Stop have rotating flavours that are available every month and usually reflect what's in season, or whatever crazy genius the pastry chefs have come up with at the time. This month's madness is this unusual gem. Lemon, polenta and rosemary? Sounds savoury! In actuality, not at all but very sweet, creamy, and that lemon is a tiny bit of sourness to balance. Overall, very nice!!
Mr. Cardigan ate the Chai Tea donut
This cute little wee thing may look small and simple, but it sure does pack a flavour punch, kind of like eating a sweet chai tea.
Chef D treated herself to an Earl Grey and Rose donut
Another tea-infused donut for the eaters today! This underestimated little number is usually one of the loners left over at the end of the day, which is surprising considering it's so aromatic, sweet, and floral... oh well, that just means more for us!
Miss Delightful ate a Maple & Brown butter donut...
...but too bad she ate it so fast before I could snap a picture. It was her first time to Short Stop, she really enjoyed herself, we can forgive her this time!
Thank you again Short Stop for the donuts. No doubt I will be back again to try your new marvelous creations!
I'm getting back on Zomato these days!
