Temescal District, Oakland
Doughnut Dolly was the real reason we wanted to check this hidden alley out. These doughnuts are not your run of the mill doughnuts! First I have to say that I'm not a fan of doughnuts in general, and never eat them if I can help it. I find the coating of grease and the over sweetness too much. This place is not run of the mill. High quality ingredients and care in how the product is made is evident.
Bake Sale Betty's to get one of her famous chicken sandwiches with spicy coleslaw. This place has changed a bit, which made me a little sad, because it was so visually charming before, and now it is too streamlined and you don't see any of the beautiful baked goods that were on display before. I hope this is just an odd transition, and not a foreshadowing of things to come. The chicken was still good. We got it in salad form though which was just as good.
Temescal district of Oakland, you will not be sorry.
