Donut Factory Placerville, CA

Donuts are God's gift to mankind. They are the culmination of endless years of human craft perfecting baking techniques of yeast and flour, and discovering balanced methods of molding sugar into a perfect blanket of crisp piquant delight.

On this day we found ourselves driving through Placerville on our way to South Lake Tahoe for a day of snowboarding. We knew we needed something to start our day off on the right foot, so we asked google where the nearest donut shop was. We found The Donut Factory.

Overall Shop Rating: 3 Nadas
It was average, deserving an average write up on this average blog post.

Vibe of the Shop: 3 Nadas
It was your run-of-the-mill donut hang out. Nothing special, but nothing not special.

Taste of the Glaze Donut: 3 Nadas
It was a little bread-y. I was hoping for a little more fluff in the dough, but my hopes we dashed upon the grind stone of too much dough density.

Coffee: 2 Nadas
Bland donut coffee. In the age of the hipster, I figured donut shops might catch wind that people like quality gourmet coffee. But, what was I expecting... This is Placerville, CA. Hipsters can stomach the ruggedness of this town.

The selection of donuts was nice, and they even had a blueberry donut!

The outdoor seating was nice too. I love when you can enjoy the outdoors while munching on a good snack.

Overall, if I lived in this town and needed a donut, I would come here.

Go get 'em. Donuts.
