I am always on the lookout for interesting places, but I admit to driving by this restaurant many times without even noticing it. Donuts to Go 2 is set back, far from the road in a strip mall next to the hospital.
You would expect the shopping center to be full of stores pharmaceuticals and diagnostic services…and it is. There is, however, an nondescript tenant next to a small drug store that sells square donuts. That’s right, square. A square donut with a square hole.
So what, you say. It’s a gimmick, nothing more. The donuts must be greasy. That couldn’t be further from the truth. When you bite into one of their huge donuts, it is soft and delicious. Not tough and dry. Not crunch and greasy. Not slimy and doughy. These are some of the best donuts I have ever had.
Not only are the donuts great, but the service is top notch. While I was waiting in line, the person at the front of the line wanted for an apple fritter, but there were none. The person behind the counter shouted to the back and had the kitchen make a fresh one. In a few minutes it came out and was the size of a small dinner plate.
I, of course, took some donuts home. I had one the next day and it was still soft…no sign of staleness at all!
There is also a regular food menu with plenty of breakfast and lunch sandwiches. In addition, they make their own sausage rolls. These are people that care about making their restaurant something special.
So if you are ever in Sanford, FL and looking for a really good donut, definitely head on over to Donuts to Go 2, you won’t be disappointed.
