It has been over a month since Doughnut Time opened a new store in Brisbane, if you pastry-munching fiends can believe it. Don't worry, the city's favourite source of glazed, filled sweet treats isn't slowing down what seems to be a quest to put one of their shops within walking distance of every Brissie resident. And if you don't want to take our word for it, just make your way to Everton Park on 27 August.
That's when the northern suburb's own Doughnut Time outlet will unleash its doughy snacks upon the hungry masses — and offer everyone free orbs of goodness from 10am to 12pm to mark the occasion, of course. Founder Damian Griffiths chose the new location because he knows that Brisbanites everywhere want to gorge on inventive creations like the Home Alone (with milk chocolate glaze, wafers, a Kit Kat and dark chocolate glaze drizzle) or the Bling Ring (with lemon sherbet glaze, vanilla meringue and rainbow sprinkles), even those who aren't regularly in the vicinity of the CBD.
The new store comes hot on the heels of recent openings in East Brisbane in July and King George Square in June, and brings the brand's total to ten in Queensland and 23 Australia-wide. Yes, more are planned in the coming months. Yes, someone really ought to make our April Fool's Day gag a reality and build a giant monument to this delicious dessert.
Find Doughnut Time at Shop 1, 791 Stafford Road, Everton Park from 27 August, or check out their website and Facebook page for more information.
