    Not sure how long it's been around, but saw a new daily special today at Do-Rite: Double Chocolate Cherry Brioche Hibiscus (something, something). The name was ridiculously long, but damn that was a tasty donut. Looked a bit like the regular double chocolate, but the brioche part made it much lighter. The cherry compote in the hole was excellent as well.

    While, it's tough to beat the simple execution of one of their old-fashioned buttermilks, this special shot up to #2 on my Do-Rite list.

    I wanted a donut so ended up with a dozen. (A little reward for the lucky few in the office today.) The #doritecollab was darn tasty: CJ Jacobson Strawberry Rhubarb filled with honey infused Greek yogurt. I also snagged a bite of the chocolate covered old fashioned. It wasn't a cheap morning, but my belly and coworkers are happy.

    Do-Rite Donuts are now at Sunset Foods every morning. Just as good as getting them right from the Chicago Do-Rite shops.

    Saw they replaced Glazed and Infused after its demise. Been tempted to pick some up. What's Do-Rite's go to?

    +1. It's outstanding.

    I am obsessed with their pistachio lemon donut, but also have lots of love for the chocolate old fashioned and their apple fritters. Their chicken sandwiches are delicious as are the breakfast sandwiches. Just not a fan of their coffee.

    FWIW, they serve Dark Matter Coffee.

    I like their coffee. It's not bad.

    "FWIW, they serve Dark Matter Coffee."

    It always tastes super bitter to me, but maybe my coffee palette isn't super sophistimicated

    Valrhona Chocolate Cake is stupendous.

    Have you noticed that they have started (at least at the main Petterino's location) first dipping them in the glaze/icing they use on their traditional buttermilk donut, then a second dip into the chocolate before adding the last dollop of chocolate icing on top?

    I'm not sure when this started, but in a quest to make a richer donut I feel it throws the taste off somewhat.

    The Valrhona had been my go to and my favorite, but this has lessened the appeal to me.

    Not sure if its system wide yet. I see both M Burger in Thompson Center and Big Shoulders coffee on Lake/Wells now has DoRite in the morning as well

    The original Randolph location started skimping on the valrhona earlier this year. Was there a big increase in price from their supplier to justify this?

    What do you mean by skimping? The ones I pickup from Sunset are as big as the other offerings and the price is $2.49 each.

    By "skimping" I'm referring to the original vahlrhona which used to have the entire top iced with this chocolate, not just a dollop on top of standard chocolate icing as it is now.
