Before I even found a place to live here in Milwaukee, I searched for places that I could gets donuts.
Yup, that's how much we love our treats in our household. Find a place to live? No no, I need my breakfast delight first.
I stumbled upon Donut Squad on Instagram, and man.... am I glad I did! I had been meaning to go there for so long, and finally got the chance to go this past weekend.
They're right on N Prospect (right across from Whole Foods... I know, ironic), and I got to meet one of the owners when I went Sunday morning. His name is Moe Dakwar, and you can tell how passionate he is about the business within the first two minutes of talking to him.
They just opened the shop in June of 2017, so it hasn't even been a year yet, and they're already a huge success! While I was there, it was just a revolving door of people coming in to get their delicious donuts. A couple of hours after I left, they were already sold out for the day... so make sure you get in their early! They also serve Colectivo Coffee.... bonus!
Their hours are 6am-3pm (or until their sold out) every day, and then... get this, night owls... they reopen on Friday and Saturdays 8pm til midnight!
The flavors they make are SO AWESOME too! My favorite was the Strawberry Shortcake (also Moe's favorite), with the Kit Kat coming in at a close 2nd.
Some of the other flavors/toppings include:
- Boston Cream
- Fruity Pebbles
- Sour Patch Kids
- Peanut Butter & Jelly
- Nutella with Reese's on top
These are some of the donuts I purchased... my coworkers were very happy Monday morning when I brought them in!
Know a cool place I should visit for Mad About Milwaukee?
