After the untimely demise of the Donut Cooperative in Seward, Minneapolis was a place sadly lacking in whimsical donuts (unless the potato-chip-covered ones at Kowalski's count). But donut-lovers the city over can breathe a collective sigh of relief, because only two short months later, Whittier's Glam Doll Donuts is bringing whimsical donuts back.
The full donut menu is posted on the Glam Dolls' website, but some standouts include The Chart Topper, a cake donut with peanut butter and sriracha, and The Girl Next Door, a fritter with cheese curd and bacon. Oh, and there's more bacon, too, in both The Scream Queen, a buttermilk cake donut with chocolate icing and caramelized bacon, and The Showgirl, a raised donut with maple icing and bacon. And yes, there's also bourbon (of course!) in The Pinup Girl, a fritter with vanilla, bourbon, and apple. To wash down all that donut-goodness, they've got a whole array of espresso drinks using beans from Chicago-based roaster Intelligentsia.
Glam Doll is open Sundays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Wednesday, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Thursday through Saturday from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. And they're working on getting a late-night permit that would allow them to stay open until 3 a.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, to better fill that post-bar need for a bacon long-john.
