North Kingstown, RI 02852
Mom and I have been going to Allie's Donuts for a few years now, ever since Mom first read about them on Roadfood.com. After much request for us to pay them a visit, and after one of our fans - Dawn - moved from Rhode Island to Connecticut where this bakery is NOT, we decided to get some so that we could
rub it in her face finally do an official review. Plus, I was having major cravings for their delicious chocolate cake donuts. After some errand running, I got on the highway and drove all the way to North Kingstown and arrived at Allie's at 1:20 p.m.
For some reason, there are three doors that get you inside this bakery. I chose the middle one and was soon faced with several shelves of muffins, cupcakes, and of course, donuts. Allie's Donuts come in all varieties - everything from colorful sprinkles to jelly - and are made from scratch. When you first walk in, all you can smell are the fresh baked goods. It's quite intoxicating! There was one other customer ahead of me (this is a standing room only kind of place), but she was done fairly quickly and in a flash I was thrust into ordering mode. Since I wanted one of everything, I had no idea what to pick. Mom had instructed me to get a dozen, so I just started choosing. I chose: two chocolate coconut, two chocolate, and one strawberry frosted, maple frosted, old fashioned, cinnamon, Boston creme, toasted coconut, coconut, and chocolate with white frosting. As the very friendly assistant boxed my donuts, I decided to take a picture of the case. Since the place is small, and there was really nowhere for the assistant to go, I had to ask her to move out of the way so that I could get a shot of the donuts. I've never had to do that before, and I thought she would wonder why I was taking a picture of the donuts, so I told her about the soon-to-be jealous Dawn who will be drooling somewhere in Connecticut at the sight of my picture. She laughed and told me that her sister - who has also moved out of the area - is jealous that she is now working at Allie's. I asked her if it was hard working around all the lovely pastries, and she said that it was!
Other items at Allie's include squares, donut pops (chocolate covered donut pieces on sticks), cookies, tarts, and donut cakes, which are hubcap-sized frosted donuts. They always look fantastic! They also serve coffee, but beware - no credit/debit cards are accepted here. Cash only, people!<
