The sign outside just says “Donut Shoppe,” and that’s what you get at Shaikh’s Place – a classic donut shop donut. While you won’t find any experimental flavor combinations here, you will find exceptionally good basic flavors that cost around a dollar apiece, though the price decreases slightly with a larger order. The incredibly light yeasted donuts are the star here, and they come frosted with sprinkles or filled with either cream or jelly. The cake donuts are great, too, with a crisp exterior that gives way to a tender, open crumb. The chocolate cake donut is my personal favorite - it bears the deep flavor of cocoa and is less sweet than you might expect. A half-dozen donuts will run you just over five dollars, and you might find that it’s a little too easy to eat that many in a single sitting.
