I had some pretty clear expectations as to what I was going to get from Donut King, but I was proved wrong on two occasions.
I thought that it would be cheap. Wrong. In fact, at $6 for the two drinks, it was the second most expensive of the six cafes sampled so far. Yes, the cappuccino was a very generous size, but I was expecting a cheap bucket of coffee.
My second mistake was to think that it would be bland. I don’t normally comment on flavour, due to my defective sense of taste, but this was head and shoulders above anything tried so far.
There were, however, a few issues that brought this cafe down to the chain store level. I was sitting where two tables joined, and they were not the same height. It’s a small detail, but I spilled my coffee moving across the ‘drop’. Additionally, a bin and its lid were separated.
This could have been a 10/10 cafe. The orientation of the shop is good and it isn’t too noisy. Some will turn their noses up at visiting a Donut King, but it’s well worth a try.
