On first approach, the Fractured Prune seems like a health food store, some place selling wheat berry milkshakes or egg white omelets. Is it possible to be more wrong? This place sells donuts, donuts, and more donuts, although there are a few sad looking bagels on display. Luckily only one of the walls is purple, and there are t-shirts with a big grinning prune displayed everywhere.
Fans of Krispy Kreme beware—these donuts are from a different school of sweets. Dense and cakey, the yellow donuts are deep-fried right when you order them. You can choose your own glazes, from honey to raspberry, peanut butter to mocha. The donuts are so hot that the icing drips off them, and if you are foolish enough to put them in a bag, they cool to a solid sticky mess. Just in case you haven’t had enough sugar, there are toppings, so you can put chocolate jimmies on your cherry glaze, or cinnamon on your maple glaze. Or choose a specialty donut, such as the banana nut bread with banana glaze, cinnamon sugar, and peanuts, or a peppermint patty donut that comes with mint glaze and mini chocolate chips. With a cup of fresh-brewed coffee, you’ll understand the bliss of what it feels like to be a cop.
