Here at Hole, your doughnut is always made-to-order and served piping hot. Come on in and order yourself two or three, or thirteen. Enjoy a hot cup of coffee freshly roasted by our neighbors at PennyCup Coffee. Feel free to take a load off and let the outside world melt away as the entire process of making yeasted doughnuts by hand rolls out before your eyes in our open kitchen. Most importantly, let us share with you our favorite pastry at what we believe to be its finest moment: seconds out of the fryer, glazed and delivered right to you. Our hope is that when you bite into one of our delicately crispy-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside doughnuts, you will be escorted to the glorious realm of the simplest of pleasures, the place where our fondest childhood memories live.
“Close your eyes and imagine the greatest doughnut you’ve ever eaten. Now, multiply its taste, texture, and unadulterated pleasure by a million — that’s what biting into Hole’s molasses-bourbon doughnut is like. This is no happy accident. The dough is hand-shaped, fried to order in rice-bran oil, and then glazed with the sweet-boozy sauce. The result is a hot, misshapen, crunchy-on-the-outside, airy-on-the-inside yeast donut of the highest order.”
"While the current doughnut craze showcases all sorts of carnival style toppings (Fruity Pebbles, Bacon, Cracker Jack, M&Ms, etc.) Hole tops theirs with such meaningful and classic adornments as molasses, allspice, cinnamon, cocoa, coffee and such. They only make four toppings per day and Hole fries their doughnuts when they're ordered and not before so they arrive in your hands mere seconds from leaving their hot oil bath. Four of these little beauties and two cups of locally roasted coffee set us back a paltry thirteen dollars and change, and it was probably the best use of thirteen dollars in my life."
