Delightful Donut House Design – Grindstone Coffee + Donuts
June 2, 2017
On National Donut Day I have an admission.
I admit it. Just this last Monday, on Memorial Day, after taking a Soul Cycle class with my friends, I ate donuts in the Hamptons. An oxymoron as one of my friends put it. As you may know if you follow me on Instagram, I spent the long weekend at bestie AM’s house in East Hampton. On Monday, good friend MR signed us up for a spin class that I begrudgingly attended. They had to drag me out of bed to go. Much to my surprise, I really enjoyed the class because I needed the exercise after a weekend of parties and celebrating. I walked out of the spin class feeling good about myself. After a leisurely ladies lunch in Sag Harbor (we had left the guys at the house with the 5 kids), MR announces in only the way that MR can, “Ok, now we are going to get donuts!” and then she and AM raced ahead of me as I fumbled to get my coat on. Wasn’t sure I heard correctly so I tried to catch up to them but couldn’t because they were speed walking at a very high speed. When I caught up to them the door was just closing behind them at what I later found out was Grindstone Coffee and Donuts in Sag Harbor on Main Street…it happened to be quite a cute donut shop so I followed them in.
Of course, I will turn a donut shop visit into a design story…starting with the fab black tin ceiling!
We had there most popular Cinnamon Sugar donuts. Sooooo good.
When we first arrived the line was out of the door. This donut shop was jam packed! Who knew people ate that many donuts.
Well, all of this to say, Happy National Donut Day to you and yours! Happy Friday too!
P.S. After my donut detour, I will be heading back to Soul Cycle for another round to burn off the calories!!!
