So what does a spontaneous date day look like in our household? Well apparently it involves donuts. Can’t say I can complain! I’m not ashamed to say that we had donuts and coffee here before we even ate breakfast. Needless to say, it was a great start to our relaxing Saturday!
One thing you should know about me and my husband, Andrew, is that we love frequenting the same places just as much as we love exploring new ones! What can I say? We like what we like. We also happen to live in a neighborhood in Fremont that is so close to so many great food spots. One of those food spots, is this cute little donut place called Bun Appétit Donuts.
This place is super cute! The people are really nice and for those who care, the interior is very Instagram-friendly. Their donuts are made from 24-hour-raised brioche, and they apparently don’t use any artificial stuff, so that’s a plus. In addition to donuts, they also serve Verve coffee and a collection of different toasts. One of our favorite things about this place though is the fact that their flavor combinations are so interesting! I don’t know how they come up with them sometimes, but their offerings often inspire me to try those flavors in my own baking. On top of that, their donuts are not overly sweet at all!
For this particular donut day, we opted to try more of their newer flavors on top of some of their classics:
Blackberry Pistachio – filled with pistachio cream, fresh blackberry glazed, topped with chopped pistachios and fresh organic blackberry. NEW
Cà Phê Sữa Đá (Vietnamese Coffee) – filled with Chicory coffee cream, coffee-infused sweetened condensed milk glaze, topped with condensed milk chantilly and chocolate-coated espresso beans. NEW
Injeolmi (Korean Sweet Rice Cake) – filled with roasted soybean cream and mochi pieces, vanilla bean glazed, coated with soybean powder, and topped with candied almonds. NEW
Strawberry Cream – sugar-coated and filled with strawberry mascarpone cream and diced fresh strawberries. Part of their regular menu, but we tried for the first time.
Matcha Cream – sugar-coated and filled with matcha cream. One of our faves!
