Rate-A-Restaurant #346: Kettle Glazed Donuts (Hollywood)
Restaurant: Kettle Glazed Donuts
Location: 6211 Franklin Ave. (Hollywood)
Type of restaurant: Donuts
We stipulated: Maria had purchased a Living Social coupon for Kettle Glazed a while ago. We're always happy to support a business on our namesake street! (Especially when donuts are involved.)
They stipulated: There's not much backstory available about Kettle Glazed, but here's their mission statement: "At Kettle Glazed Doughnuts, we combine top notch ingredients with a love of the trade and a passion for perfection to make truly great doughnuts."
What we ordered: A dozen donuts, including Buttermilk Vanilla ($1.25), Blueberry Lemon ($1.25), Maple Bar ($1.50), Buttermilk Maple ($1.25), Chocolate Vanilla ($1.25), Chocolate sprinkle ($1.25) and jelly ($1.25)
High point: Some great flavors, which rotate.
Low point: The donuts were a tad dry.
Overall impression: I don't know if slapping a piece of bacon on a long john is inventive or a bit lazy. But overall, as a big old fashioned style donut fan, I liked the wide flavor variety.
Will we return: You know what, it was fine... but if I'm going to indulge again in a donut, I'll probably stick with the nearby Donut Friend.
