|Their jelly donuts are the jam!|
It's hard to miss this shop while making a trip to Midtown. If you're one of the people that have been wondering about Jelly Donut, wonder no more.
Jelly Donut is legit, with friendly service, fresh and tasty donuts, and hot and tasty breakfast sandwiches.
It's incredible that we have a donut shop that's open 24/7. Late night/early morning cravings? No problem!
Why is this shop so surprising to me? It's outdated. You'd think you were on a movie set taking place in the 1950s. Let's just say that this is a great "don't judge a book by its cover" example.

Every single donut I've tasted from here was really good and I love that they're not too big and have just the right amount of sweetness. They have that traditional yeast flavor everyone loves from a good donut and will keep you coming back for more.
You must try their lemon-filled jelly donut. The sweetness of the glaze with the freshness of the jelly paired with the right amount of moist dough makes for a great treat.
For an option that's not too sweet, try their Hawaiian style donuts called Malasadas: donut balls filled with jam and coated with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar. They are bit more chewy with a bread like texture and not as sweet as their traditional donuts. Like their jelly donuts, the jelly fillings in their malasadas are super fresh tasting. Try their guava filled with powdered sugar. Malasadas are a great alternative for people watching their sugar intake and are the perfect treat for children.

If you're the type that doesn't accept donuts on their own as a complete breakfast, you'll have all of your traditional breakfast sandwiches to choose from.
|Bread: croissant, sliced bread, bagels|
Protein: bacon, sausage, egg, tuna, ham, turkey
Veggies: lettuce, onion, tomato
Condiments: mayo, mustard, black pepper
Their croissants are made in house and make the best breakfast sandwich when paired with a nice and fluffy egg, gooey cheese, and meat of your choice.
|Croissant, egg, & cheese breakfast sandwich. Yum! They make a nice and fluffy microwaved egg. Sandwich served hot.|
I tried their bacon, egg, and cheese croissant and love that they give a decent amount of bacon that's not too salty and fatty.
I also tried their tuna sandwich and loved it.
