In a word: Donuts... sweet, sweet donuts.
Latest Greenbush Bakery news and reviews at del.icio.us
JM and Nichole got 6 donuts, a coffee and an apple juice.
The bill was $3.40, or $1.70/person, with a coupon (thanks, Bucky Book!)
JM and Nichole both gave Greenbush Bakery an A- (see our grading rubric).
There's nothing like a paper sack of donuts to see you through a long day. JM would love to ramble on about the bagel/donut paradigm in Madison, but that would detract from the elegance of Greenbush Bakery. We may have overdone it this time, but it's all in the name of science.
While picking out her favorite varieties from the fully stocked* glass case, Nichole was thrilled that when she asked if there was a maple donut, the reply was a choice: "frosted or filled?" Mmm, maple.
Though we weren't dawdling, the ever-growing line behind us caused us (and the clerk) to get a little flustered, so JM felt like he didn't find his favorite kind of donut (chocolate filled ones with the white frosting) and settled for one with Badger-red-and-white jimmies/sprinkles.
Even so, once we got settled and had a donut each, we felt the sweet reward of getting out of the house a little earlier than usual. Highly recommended.
*and spotless - we're not surprised to learn that Greenbush makes the city's "cleanest restaurants" list often.
