For a cheeky sugary treat, there’s nowhere better than Spudnut Shop. Using a long-standing recipe that can be traced back to an old German folk recipe that uses potato flour, the chefs here cook up the most fantastic tasting donuts imaginable. First-timers should sample the old-fashioned or the plain glaze but there are plenty of other flavours and toppings to choose from. The chocolate and blueberry varieties are both popular flavours among the shop’s most loyal customers who also often order the six doughnut variety pack.
