Here we are at Pip’s Original Doughnuts & Chai located at 47th and NE Fremont St. Piet has come to collect his birthday bounty. Say what?! Yeah, Pip’s dough is so dope that they give you a free dozen during the week of your birthday!
There seems to be a lot of debate about who has the best doughnuts in Portland. As long as Pip’s is around, there is no contest. For one thing, they make your order fresh right behind the counter. It’s served to you hot out of the fryer – not cooked in the morning and left on a heated rack like most places. Then there is their menu…I mean really…Honey and Sea Salt, Blackberry Lavender, Meyer Lemon Pear Butter, and the “Dirty Wu” – hot cinnamon sugar drizzled with warm Nutella & raw honey with a sea salt finish.
Get a eye-full of these babies! We’re on a diet, so I only ate one before sending the rest to work with Piet. The other great thing about Pip’s is their chai menu. With names like Emmylou, The King & I, and Smoky Robinson you’re sure to find a winning spice combo your tastebuds will enjoy.
The last thing I love about Pip’s is of course their decor. Thats my jam, so I always have to take a million pictures of it. After looking at photos of doughnuts I am starving and must now forage in my kitchen for some sustenance. xo
