In Melbourne, Australia, the hot, sweet inner belly of a sugar coated donut beckons. The ‘Melbourner’, as affectionately termed by locals, has been around since the end of the Second World War. Here’s where to find it.
Locals have given Olympic Doughnuts many names, some born out of pride and some love. People from all over Melbourne talk excitedly about the ‘Footscray donuts’ and the ‘train station donuts’, both popular, alternative names for Olympic Doughnuts. These hot jam donuts are served out of a caravan housing just two people. While one prepares the donuts, Nick Tsiligiris, the proprietor of Olympic Doughnuts, stands with the famous dolphin-shaped jam shooter in his hand and gives the final touch, including a rich sugar coating. The caravan serves commuters, flowing in and out of the station, from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday.
