I’m not sure that I’ve ever run into a more accurately named restaurant. Firecakes donuts is just that, little cakes that are FIRE A.K.A AMAZING.
A unique, little donut shop on E. Hubbard Street in the River North neighborhood of Chicago, Firecakes is a shop you do not want to pass up. With an enormous selection of donuts, you are guaranteed to find something you will not easily forget.
Their adorable street side seating allows you to enjoy the exciting popularity of River North while tackling some scrumptious rings of heaven.
Firecakes’ donut case is a magnificent wonder to the eyes. I think I ogled at it for about 10 whole minutes trying to comprehend the vast selection. From a simple Old Fashioned Buttermilk donut to the extravagant Maple Glazed Pineapple and Bacon donut, the variety was incredible.
While I love a simple glazed or chocolate iced donut, I felt compelled to try something more exuberant. The Maple Glazed Pineapple and Bacon donut was the donut for me that day. The light and airy dough combined with the smooth maple icing, bacon sprinkles and pineapple slices, was completely out of this world. These three flavors, rarely seen together until recently, complimented each other perfectly.
It is so apparent that Firecakes knows exactly what they’re doing when it comes to creating and making donuts and their original flavors. (See their entire delicious menu here)
I can’t wait to go back and devour more of their delectable treats.
What are some of your favorite donut shops? What is the most extravagant flavor of donut you have ever tried? I’d love to hear from you!
