came back to Portland. I thought it was going to blow my mind, but it turned out to be just okay for me. The donut was average. I wasn't super wowed about it. But don't get me wrong, they weren't bad donuts. Try to find street parking!

I have to admit that every now and then when I feel like being breakfast-naughty, I'll save my empty stomach for a Blue Star donut. Love the variety in unique flavors, including my all time favorite powdery orange-olive oil, lemon poppy or the indulgent blueberry bourbon basil...secret's out!

The owners of this fine establishment must be doughnut connoisseurs!

Discovering this gem of a place while perusing for something to fill my belly along Abbot Kinney was Eureka! Now as fair warning if you are particular to light and fluffy doughnuts, you may not be a fan. I am not a discriminator of texture luckily and I have the super power to enjoy all mediums of doughnutty delights! Upon sliding in curiously to this clean and slightly hipster modern shop, I quickly availed myself of their Lemon Poppy Seed glazed doughnut aaaaaaand boy did my mouth hug every last morsel of that doughnut! The denseness, with a afterthought of lightness in texture married delicately with the slight toasty outer layer, then danced together all night long with the dare I say scrumptious Lemon poppy seed glaze! A notable brownie point for Blue Star, was that the worker offered a taste of any of the doughnut glaze I wanted so that I would make a very informed and un-regrettable decision.

Thank you for the kindness and the artistry you impart on the heavenly world of doughnut bliss!

Today was Blue Star's soft opening and they were giving out FREE DONUTS! The lines were long, as expected, but wen't by quickly. They are officially opening on Wednesday!

This was my first time trying a blue star donut and I'm so glad I stood in line and tried it. Here's the rundown:
Presentation - 5 stars
Quality - 5 Stars
Taste and freshness - 5 stars

Seriously, this is some good eats. I'm so glad they're in my neck of the woods (work-wise) because I'm just going to have to come here for my daily dose of sweet cravings. I got the apple fritter donut and chocolate donut with nuts. Both were equally amazing. I highly recommend!
