How do I know? Well, I've spent the past week stuffing myself with donuts oozing raspberry jam and lemon curd, donuts topped with white chocolate and pistachios, not to mention the s'more donut crowned and filled with  marshmallows. 

 WHOO'S DONUTS opened along Cerrillos - next to the ChocolateSmith and just down from Whole Foods - in October and these delicious gourmet
 donuts  - with imaginative taste combinations - are just plain GOOD!


with a lovely lemon ganache...


Yes, that is bacon - chile bacon and maple bacon with dark
chocolate -  to be more precise - atop these delicious donut bars.







Owners Kari and Jeff Keenan (they also own The Chocolate Smith next door)
are committed to organic ingredients and coming up with nifty taste combinations. And part of the fun of Whoo's Donuts is  
you never know what delightful minglings you'll discover.

When I wasn't consuming donuts from Whoo's, I was tasting some smashing pastries, etc. from  DULCE BAKERY - located just down from Trader Joe's.
It's a fun, contemporary space opened a year ago by Kirk Barnett and Dennis Adkins. Kirk handles the business end and Dennis the pastry end, and together they've
pulled off a great foodie destination where you can sip and nibble all day. Everything is baked from scratch and they only use natural and local ingredients.




They serve memorable, memorable coffee drinks. Frothy and rich...


Splendid, thick slices of Quiche; light and chock full of great fillings.




Pinwheel danish with rich jam centers... savory, savory scones, yummy cupcakes,  and their coconut cake is extraordianry...







And the best...I mean the best muffins I've had in recent history!

  1. Hiya... that diminutive chocolate espresso tart drizzled in caramel is actually our chocolate buttermilk donut with peanut butter buttercream, pretzels, peanuts and marshmallows drizzled in homemade caramel... at Whoo's. I call it the Big Lebowski and it's one of my favorite specials to make. Just had to make the correction... since it is listed as something you can buy at Dulce. Great pics of all the baked goods and donuts. Thanks for coming by and posting about our shop.
