Donut Shop

“Main St’s unofficial moniker might as well be the Donut Mile, with two of the city’s best donuteries just a stone’s throw from each other. Cartems fries and bakes theirs fresh daily, and offers both cake based and yeast based donuts to satisfy any palette. Not to be missed are the earl grey, salted caramel, maple pecan and london fog donuts. The cherry on top? Their vegan and gluten free equivalents are indistinguishable from the OGs. ”
