Portland does donuts

There’s a new kid in town. Blue Star Donuts is here to teach the city a thing or two about the sophisticated side of one of everyone’s favorite sweet treats. Their slogan is “Donuts for grownups,” and with exotic names like Valrhona chocolate crunch, blueberry bourbon basil, passion fruit cocoa nib, crème brûlée, and Meyer lemon with key lime curd, they certainly live up to the motto on the outside. But what do they taste like? AMAZING, in a totally grown-up way, of course. The tender brioche dough is soft and eggy and the lime curd inside my meyer lemon donut was tart and rich. My intention was to eat just a few bites of a couple but found myself not able to quit and was even licking my fingers they were so good. The dough is made from scratch every day and they use local, organic ingredients. 

Located on the corner of SW Washington and 13th, Blue Star Donuts is a bright and open space with windows that go floor to ceiling. All of the production is viewable to the customer and its fun to see the dough rising, the glazes being made, and even favorite cookbooks that line their shelves. The atmosphere is clean and chic and the people who work there are friendly.

Be sure to stop by before they run out, because unlike some of Portland’s favorite attractions, they close for the day when the last donut has been sold.
