The smell of fried dough is eminent as soon as one steps through the door. The walls are covered in vivid artwork, including a mural that takes up the majority of the space and depicts a creative way of making donuts (volcanoes and rollercoasters included). Welcome to Mini Donut World, the latest and greatest addition to the Stirling Town Center’s array of businesses.
From the scent of fried dough to the variety of toppings available for all to see, Mini Donut World’s authenticity is put proudly on display.
The budding baked good business opened just recently and is off to a promising start. Advertising their custom donuts as decadent and satisfying, Mini Donut World is true to its word. Offering a wide range of creatively-named flavors from “Yabba Dabba” to “Phone Home,” there is no shortage of options.
Custom and fresh are key at this donut shop. Not only can customers build their donut, but they can watch it be assembled right in front of their eyes. From the scent of fried dough to the variety of toppings available for all to see, Mini Donut World’s authenticity is put proudly on display.
If none of the flavors are satisfying, customers need not fret. They can always create their own donut in four easy steps: donut, icing, topping, drizzle.
However, when it comes to the flavors available, Fairy Floss is definitely worth a try— topped with pop rocks, it’s exciting, sweet and satisfying. Other notable flavors are “Cookies-N-Cream,” “Homer Simpson” and “Lucky.”
Additionally, Mini Donut World is not like the average donut shop in that it makes the doughy treats right in front of customers, ensuring fresh, warm and positively exquisite donuts every time.
The shop is also kid-friendly. It has a seating area just for the little ones, and even steps in front of the windows, so curious kids can view the making of the donuts.
Employees are courteous and happy to help wherever and whenever needed.
These donuts are just as delicious as they are photogenic. Customers may delight in having such a picturesque dessert to adorn their social media feeds.
As for prices, it starts at $3 for a box of three donuts and goes up to $21 for a box of 25. Therefore, it’s fairly reasonable, especially when one considers that these are not run-of-the-mill donuts. They are specialty donuts, and at these prices, it’s more or less a steal.
Donuts are not all there is to offer; there is an ample beverage menu to choose from as well, in order to make the donuts go down easier. Not that they need much help— the soft vanilla cake base practically melts in the mouth.
Not only is the food delectable, but the service is wonderful as well. Employees are courteous and happy to help wherever and whenever needed.
Even better, Mini Donut World does catering. Adorable donuts take birthdays, holidays or any other celebration to an entirely new level.
Whether it’s a sweet fix, an aesthetically pleasing picture or a place to let kids be kids that people are looking for, Mini Donut World is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Top it off with sublime service, it makes for the perfect place to get a sweet fix.
