Overall Shop rating: 1 1/2 Nadas
Live. Love. Donuts. Upon researching this shop I found some amazing facts about chain donut shops in relation to Yum Yum Donuts! Here are some trivia questions:
1. What donut shop chain did Yum Yum Donuts purchase in October 2004?
2. The President of Yum Yum donuts used to work with the President of another large donut chain before he started Yum Yum Donuts. What Donut chain was it?
I love donuts (A). I love experiencing weird unique places (B). I don’t necessarily like Madera, CA (C). This donut shop was in Madera (D). A x B does not equal C, But C equals A x D. And if C is negative, it ruins it all.
Vibe of Shop: 3 Nadas
The inside was normal, but kind of cramped. The tables were super close to each other and the whole time I was there, there was a little girl yelling and crying. Not a very peaceful way to critique a donut. At least they are family friendly.
Outside Appearance: 3 1/2 Nadas
I really appreciated the familiar 1970’s donut shop appearance as I approached the shop. The Yum Yum sign is fantastic.
Hours: 24 Hours
Service: 1 Nadas
Truthfully, I felt like the guy working there had better things to do. It was all business and he was bored.
Taste of Glaze Donut: 3 Nadas
It was just ok. Nothing especially good or bad about it. Middle of the road.
Blueberry Donut? No. But they had super cute princess donuts! That’s great for little girls. Now I want to see some manly He-Man or GI Joe donuts!!!
Coffee: 2 Nadas
Tasted like dirty water.
Special: They had the most inspiring poster I have ever seen… Anywhere… ever… Period. It has become the quote of my life.
