This place may not immediately catch your attention from the street, but dear friends in the Burlington-area, you must go inside (or through the drive-thru) if you want to try the best doughnut on Earth. Recently relocated to downtown Burlington, Paul’s Pastry Shop is the definition of a diamond in the ruff.
We all love our Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts, but what about the deliciousness that comes from good ol’ mom-and-pop shops? If you’re looking for a melt-in-your-mouth doughnut experience, I shall now introduce its traditional, glazed doughnut. At first glance I wasn’t that impressed, but after one bite I was sold. It’s thicker than what I usually like, however, the perfect amount of sweetness and glazed texture makes it irresistible!
If doughnuts aren’t your thing then have no fear! At Paul’s, they whip up other gourmet pastries, cakes and cookies. If you swing by for breakfast, they even have bagels. Forewarning: I got a doughnut and bagel. I let my eyes do the choosing and unfortunately felt overly-stuffed after downing the two.
Whether you’re looking for a sweet breakfast or just want to satisfy your sweet tooth during the day, stop by Paul’s Pastry Shop for all of your baked good needs.
