Once again, Sarah C. sacrifices to give our readers scoop on Krispy Kreme:
You aren’t seeing things, there is indeed a “Hot Now” sign on Franklin Street. Krispy Kreme opened it’s newest location there last month just a bit down the block from Kidzu making this an easy stop for a treat.
The store offers the same menu options of the newly renovated downtown Raleigh location – donuts, coffee and ice cream. The donuts themselves are actually made in Raleigh, then shipped to the store where they are heated and given their signature glazing on site. And, also similar, there is a window where fans of all ages can watch the process. We took a family visit over the weekend and sweet little D left plenty of excited handprints on that glass.
Fortunately, we picked a slow time of the day to visit and nearly had the place to ourselves. The front features a line up of barstools along one wall and a nice seating area with comfy couches and chairs on the opposite side. D had a blast walking around and patting the tables as they were just his height.
Honestly, my one complaint was the lack of a diaper changing station in the bathroom. I understand though as the main traffic will probably be from college students, but as a mom of a toddler, I am always on the lookout for these things.
Now that you have the details on the new shop, let’s talk donuts. Free donuts. Those are the best kind, right?
As part of the continuing grand opening festivities, Krispy Kreme Chapel Hill is hosting a “Seek & Find” event this week. Starting today, there will be hints given on their Facebook fan page. Each hint leads to a Krispy Kreme t-shirt. The person who finds the most t-shirts wins donuts for year!
