Dessert Discovery: A Sweet Find

i’ve been passing by Monsees almost every day for almost a year now, but since it’s located on the other side of the road when i pass by on my way home from work and dropping by meant leaving my traffic-less lane, i never had the urge to go until last weekend

since i had a day all to myself before hubby came back from out of town last Sunday, i decided i would go to Monsees for brunch. Unfortunately, their menu only had a couple of rice and pasta meals which i was not in the mood for that morning so i thought i would just look at their pastry shelves

WARNING: these donuts were left in the back of the car while i went window shopping hence their “sort of melted icing” look

their shelves were stocked with great looking bread but i was craving for some sweetness that morning so i got a box of these

Monsees Coffee Donut

When hubby got home he happily found the box of donuts in the fridge. He thought they were good but wished the bread was a little lighter. He likes donuts that are thin and airy. I, on the other hand, liked how the bread was a good chew. I just wish the topping was a little less sweet, but there’s nothing that a strong glass of iced coffee couldn’t fix.

Next time i’d like to try their other delicious looking pastries and maybe order some of their pasta dishes.

How do you like your donuts?

    • Same here S, about liking all donuts, that is! Monsees donuts are pretty sweet because of it’s thick intense icing so i think it comes out sweeter than KK.

  2. I’m like your hubby also, I prefer the airy ones appeal to me like the glazed of KK.

    I love the peach danish and Spanish bread of Monsees – http://www.talesfromthetummy.com/2011/03/monsees-chefs-and-bakers-white-plains.html
