Hello donut friends, my name is Dorit and I’m guest posting tonight for my friends Jason and Marc in the #nicepeopledonutclub!
Just under an hour north of NYC, tucked away between Greenwich and Norwalk, you’ll find Stamford, CT, one of Fairfield County’s most bustling cities. Stamford has a pretty pleasant mix of a fun downtown atmosphere with a side of quiet coastal New England, and it’s been home for the past 26 years of my life. In those 26 years, I’ve discovered that my hometown has two big gems:
1. The original Colony Grill
I first became Donut Delight’s #1 fan in high school, when I’d sneak out during lunch with a few friends and drive to the most popular (and first that I knew of) Donut Delight location in Stamford on Hope Street. While Donut Delight is somewhat of a chain, 6 of its 7 locations are in Stamford, so it feels pretty local and one of a kind to me. There’s truly no better Saturday morning than one that starts off with a fresh blueberry glazed donut.
Donut Delight isn’t your super fancy over the top donut shop either. They carry a lot of the classics: cinnamon, powdered sugar, jelly, bavarian cream, honey-dipped, and some frosted donuts too. Basically, think fresh and flavorful without the frills – and awesome customer service too! The convenience of the drive-thru paired with friendly staff takes the Donut Delight experience to a level that your average Dunkin’ just can’t reach.
All in all, Donut Delight is most definitely a stop to add to your next stroll through Fairfield County. If you’re craving the true Stamford experience, a blueberry glazed donut is the way to go. Stamfordians also appreciate the classic chocolate glazed, or (in season) pumpkin spice glazed. Pair it with an almond-flavored iced coffee and a stroll at Cove Beach and you might just be ready to move to the 203!
