I liked the doughnuts but I did not love them. I feel that more care goes into what is on top of the doughnuts rather than the base, which to me matters. They are overpriced too. If they were £1 less then they would be a little more value fro what they are but at the price now they are not worth it really.
Massive fan of Crosstown doughnuts - my only problem is that I have to order a chocolate one and raspberry filled one as I can never choose between them!
Expense is the one, minor drawback with Crosstown - but it's a treat, and assuming it's a rare one (nobody should be eating doughnuts daily, however tempting) well worth it. If you try the crème brûlée doughnut and aren't overwhelmed, I'm impressed by your resistance to tastiness in its purest form.
Actually, I take back the whole "one drawback" thing - choosing what you want and (potentially) sharing what you get is a hardship.
The sign on the door warns of doughnut porn and to mind the step, and please head that warning! MY! I have never been into such a delicious looking shop!
There was something for everyone and someone who finds it incredibly difficult to make any decisions quickly it was quite the nightmare! Luckily, the staff were very friendly and were more than willing to give their recommendations, even though the queue was out of the door.
Everything to do with their doughnuts is made by them, jams, toppings, etc and I think that's what makes them so special. I had the cinnamon scroll with the vanilla bean glaze and it was just melt in you mouth delicious.
I was a bit wary of the price, but please don't let that put you off - it is definitely something to treat yourself to on pay day but it is so, so worth it!
So I have never really been that bothered about doughnuts, a good old jam filled one from the supermarket would suit me, that was until a friend introduced me to Crosstown.
If you have never heard of them before, think of them as your gourmet sweet treat, they are the upper class in the world of doughnuts.
With flavours like gin and lemon, beetroot lemon and thyme and apricot and lavender you will be spoilt for choice. I picked a beautiful looking creation that was peanut butter berry which was almost to pretty to eat. Almost.
The berry jam was fantastic, so thick and sweet I hope it was homemade, and the peanut cream was so smooth but not too over powering combined with the nice crunchy texture of the peanuts this was most definitely a luxury doughnut.
I will be visiting again and keeping an eye out for their specials and limited editions. A tad on the pricy side for a doughnut, but it really is so much more than that. Take five minutes out of your day, and indulge.
I was always a huge fan of doughnuts in high school and I used to buy them every week. Since I started working, I never ate any doughnuts anymore. As I read so many good things about Crosstown's doughnuts, I decided I should pop in and have a try. It's around the corner from my work anyway. The range of doughnuts is great and I especially like the rare flavours or the flavour combinations. I bought 3 doughnuts: Dulche de Leche, Matcha and Thyme/roses. I must say flavour wise I prefered the last one. The Dulché doughnut was a bit dull, Matcha was not really airy and quite dry and the thyme/roses was a bit on the dry side as well and some would say too sweet.
So it was a bit of a dissapointment for me as I love airy, light doughnuts which are a bit greasy, as a doughnut should be.
I love these donuts so much I once got 'em delivered to the office as a midday snack. Had to get my fix! They're so good, especially as they're not greasy so they don't seem naughty.
Bought on leather lane every Wednesday & Friday at the market. I had tried the peanut butter jam one & hadn't been too impressed but thought I'd give it another go. Went for a safer bet -the raspberry jam 😍 & what a treat it was. I definitely got my donut hit & I even got home & added some crunchy peanut butter on it... Yum!! Thankfully I only bought one 🙌🏽
I've honestly lost count of how many friends I've recommended Crosstown's incredible sourdough doughnuts to. My absolute favourite is their heavenly Peanut Butter & Compote (pictured) - Every time I come here, I tell myself I'll choose something different, but more often than not I can't resist the Peanut Butter.
Come here for a naughty coffee, or take your friends for a post-dinner pudding-to-go (since they're open until 10pm)
