The Slow and Savory Review
One of the many things Brandy has inadvertently become an expert in while on her varied adventures in brunching is donuts. She's had the jelly filled and the cream filled, the glazed and the frosted, the yeast and the cake, the sweet and the savory. "If its fried and sold before noon, I have an opinion on it," as she likes to put it. But recently, Brandy realized she was missing an important part of her donut knowledge arsenal; she had yet to visit Stan's Donuts and Coffee. Luckily, since Stan's just opened their new location in Lakeview, Brandy took to opportunity to rectify this oversight.
The new Stan's at the corner of Diversey and Clark is pretty tiny, but did host a few chairs and tables for those who wished to take a seat and enjoy their donuts immediately. Crammed behind the donut counter were several cheerful workers who moved quickly to get the fried dough into the waiting customers' hands as quickly as possible, meaning within five minutes of walking in the door on a busy day, Brandy had an adorably pink box containing half a dozen treats and was ready to head home to enjoy them.
Considering the price, friendliness of the staff, and quality of the donuts, Brandy ranked Stan's among her favorite donuts in the city. "I think now there is no way my expertise in the field of breakfast pastry can be questioned, " Brandy remarked, proudly, "I wonder if one can get a doctorate in that sort of thing?"
