Krispy Kreme had used to be really popular in United States, Canada, Hong Kong, and parts of Europe. Perhaps people started to become more healthy, Krispy Kreme stores gradually closed down across the world. Now, there is only three locations remaining in Toronto (two downtown, one Mississauga): one on Harbord Street, one on McCaul Street, and one at Heartland Town Center.
I only ventured towards their McCaul location after purchasing a Groupon online of $10 for 2 dozen donuts. Isn’t that deal amazing? I haven’t had any of their donuts probably since two years ago, but $2.79 at Timmy’s could only get me a medium coffee and one donut for breakfast in comparison!
Early on a weekday, I walked to Krispy Kreme Doughnut Cafe around 6:30pm. In the midst of picking out my 24 donuts and packaging it up, I realized I’ll have to carry two big boxes of donuts with me to dinner. Hence, I asked if they could keep all my donuts until 10PM (closing hour) for later pick-up. They were very nice and said yes to accommodate hehe. Good service!!
To keep it simple and avoid a hassle, I chose one full box in plain original flavour and the latter assorted – 1/3 as filled-donuts and 2/3 with ones that have sprinkles on top. The original is always delicious even eaten by itself. All the others were super good too! There were strawberry-filled, chocolate and cream-filled donuts. Some also has chocolate bits and hazelnut on top. Overall, the donuts were not too sweet, even the donuts with filling.
Remember to always microwave them when possible! It melts right into your mouth on every bite.
If you are finding a place to sit down and gobble down the donuts, this location at McCaul has good seating. There’s actually comfortable sofa chairs and tables in a small room at the back of Krispy Kreme (second room inside the store) – definitely a quiet atmosphere that customers might not know about.
