Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Jonathan Fox's offering to the doughnut-crazed masses is adorably vintage, with boxes of mostly-classic flavors (old fashioned buttermilk; chocolate-glazed) wrapped in cute bakers' twine. The triple-chocolate is a solid replication of chocolate birthday cake, and the old-fashioned is one of the most modest in town—a fact that will thrill smaller eaters. Yet the only Firecakes doughnut that really makes a statement technically isn't a doughnut at all: It's the crisp and surprisingly light apple fritter.
