Friday, June 5, is national doughnut day, and this one is a little more legit than other silly food holidays. The Salvation Army started it in 1938 to recognize volunteers who served coffee and doughnuts to soldiers in the trenches during World War I.
Here are a few places to get your morning sugar rush in Preston Hollow
Yummy Donuts: Forget the trendy shops in East Dallas. We’ve had one all along on Lovers Lane where you can get your lemon drop, rainbow pebbles and peanut butter cup doughnuts. They are almost too pretty to eat, and the sleek and bright decor invites you to sit down and stay awhile.
Mustang Donuts: This SMU enclave has endured for more than 30 years, serving up basic assortments of glazed doughnuts, apple fritters and bear claws.
Inwood Donut: This nondescript, family-owned shop doesn’t try to be anything special. And yet, it’s one of the best and most reliable doughnut dives in our neighborhood. Cash only, though.
