Mrs. Murphy's Donuts

374 Depot St., Manchester Center, VT - (802) 362-1874
Forget about the national chains. Once you’ve had a real sinker at the counter of this storefront coffee shop, you can never go back to junk-food donuts. They are the simplest pastries imaginable: sturdy circles with a good crunch to their skin and creamy-soft insides.

At about 6:30 am, one of Mrs. Murphy's two U-shaped counters was filled with locals. It was spring, and so much of the conversation was about sap and the maple syrup harvest.

This is the sort of restaurant where it's difficult to feel alone, even if you choose to sit at a table to the left. Counter seats are a choice opportunity to partake of community news and opinion.

Mrs. Murphy's is a humble little storefront that serves some of the best donuts in the Northeast. And that's saying plenty, because Northeastern donuts set the standard.

Mrs. Murphy's makes all kinds of donuts, and while the maple-frosted, honey dips, and honey dews are highlights, we prefer absolutely plain (or sour cream): ideal for eating out of hand, or for dunking.

Breakfast to go: a small pyramid of Mrs. Murphy's donuts on the dashboard of my car. They are sour cream on the left, blueberry cake on the right, and honey dip towards the back.
