Bob's Donuts

Bob's is an oasis of civilization in the wee small hours of the morning when the rest of the city's fast asleep and there are glazed old-fashioneds to be dunked. These fresh, hot, made-from-scratch triumphs come in several varieties — plain, cinnamon, glazed, jelly, light, dense — yet none has ever been heavy, greasy, or stale. It's a pleasure to get a cup of joe from the do-it-yourself coffee station, settle in at the counter, and, if you're there at the right time, watch some real professionals place gobs of additive-free dough into vats of burbling oil and convert them into the tastiest doughnuts around. The tiny hole-in-the-wall setting is ideal for nibbling, sipping, and early-morning contemplation.
