Daylight Donuts - Tue, 12/14/10 5:46 PM

Excuse the "late-to-the-game" thread here (and yes, following my

recent and also late-to-the-game thread about another albeit regional

chain [] [of North Carolina burger and shake spots -- Cook-Out]) but as

this particular Tulsa-based Ponzi-licious scheme of doughnut outlets has

received only nominal shout-outs to-date on this site, I'll pose the question:

 

What do you think of Daylight Donuts?

 

Their Richmond, Virginia location (West End at 10260 West Broad) is

only single digit months old and I hit it for the first time this morning. Chain

or no chain, these were VERY good, preservative-free, yeasty and glazed

orbs of heaven. I was truly impressed and bought a dozen for home.

 

Without question, I will return!

Before we moved back to Florida I enjoyed the Daylight donut place in Johnson City, Tn. They also opened one in Bristol, Tn I think. They were both off the beaten path for me so I didn't get by very often. I remember looking at their franchise site when I was vaguely thinking about opening one. Literally a donut shop in a box concept.

I prefer a mom & pop place in my area for donuts, but of the chain donut shops in the area, Daylight Donuts does the best job of any of them, and they are my #2 favorite place for donuts.

What makes those donuts different from other cake donuts?
 
I know I'd like them, just wondering what sets them apart from others.

It's not the cake variety that I like.  It's their raised donuts.  They have cinnamon bear-claw type donut that is just awesome!  Their glazed donuts are pretty good, too.

I like their peanut donuts and their custard ones.  Pretty good.  I prefer mom and pop places but very few of those in Richmond and none that I know of convenient to the far west end or Goochland.
 
For example I love Country Style but that is out near the airport, 45 mins from my house or more.
