Blue Star Donuts

Blue Star Donuts

There were two donuts placed I wanted us to hit up on our last day but we only made it to Blue Star Donuts (the other was Pip’s Original). Blue Star Donuts has three locations in Portland and we visited the one in the Mississippi District.


They don’t make the donuts on site here but they are shipped to this store from one of the other locations. We saw the van with fresh trays of donuts pull up to restock the shop. It’s a pretty small place with not much indoor seating.

Here are some of the offerings they had that day. The cake donuts on top (some were vegan) and the raised n’ glazed donuts on the bottom. In retrospect, I wish I had gotten one of the cake donuts as well, but at the time I thought they were all vegan and I shied away from them (though looking at the photo now I can see not all were vegan).

I wanted to get some unique flavored donuts, things I hadn’t seen before and the Blood Orange Ginger jumped out at me immediately. All of the flavorings were pretty much in the frosting and not in the donut itself which was a little disappointing but not surprising. The raised donuts were airy and fluffy. I ended up thinking this one was just okay but I like how the candied ginger looked like little glittery sparkles on the donut.

[hard cider fritter]


I did like the fritter quite a bit. It was shaped/cut so that there were lots of little squares all over the surface of the donut. The multiple surfaces created lots of grooves and edges to make this even crispier than a normal fritter donut. My only complaint would be that there was maybe a little too much glaze on it making it a tad oversweet.

Lastly I got the Blueberry Bourbon Basil donut which turned out to be my favorite of the three. I liked how the frosting completely enrobed the donut on the outside and even on the inner circle. The flavor was a little less sweet and had a faint hint of basil lurking in the background. Due to the complete coverage of frosting, every bite had a bit of frosting in it making it quite tasty.

 

Jake thought the donuts were too rich for his tastes (though still better than Voodoo’s Donuts) and T was happy enough to polish off anything we didn’t finish.

This is a quirky little photo where you can see our shoes and my camera strap, but for some reason I still really like this photo.
