SLO Donut Company- San Luis Obispo, CA
SLO Donut Company (affectionately called SLODOCO by students and locals) I'm confident to say serves up some of the best donuts you will ever eat. While they serve up some pretty darn good classics (you can never beat a buttermilk old fashioned), what they're really known for is their selection of unique, premium donuts. Their maple bacon bar, while not the most original idea, is well executed and one of the top sellers. But beyond that, they do have other donuts that I think are way better, such as the Nutella donut, the lemon filled, and chocolate peppermint. The boysenberry jam one is also my favorite... Or should I rephrase that and say that every donut there is my favorite. There's even a DIY toppings bar with an assortment of frostings and toppings.
old fashion = TFC's favorite
you know something's up when people are here on a friday night
My friends and I stopped by on a whim on Friday night, and after I sprang for a blueberry donut, within seconds after taking a bite wish I had gotten two. The inside was moistly decadent yet deceptively light at the same time, and was chockfull of blueberries. I also appreciated the fact that the cakey donut by itself was slightly undersweetened so the simple glaze could shine through. That and a hot chocolate only set me back around 3-ish dollars.
A few weeks later before coming home for Christmas break I stopped by to buy a dozen to give as a gift for a local auto shop that inspected my car for free (Complete Automotive). While I was there, I bit the bullet and bought a dozen specialty donuts to bring home for some taste testing :). 6 went for my house, and the other 6 to my cousins.
