Donuts are usually something you eat at breakfast or while fake browsing at a car dealership, but at Bob’s Donuts you can walk in at 4am since it’s open 24 hours a day. There’s usually a short line, but depending on when you go, it could be filled with families looking for a snack or people getting something to eat after Harper & Rye locks its doors. Go plain classic donut if you want - they’re puffy and amazing - but odds are you want a maple buttermilk bar or an apple fritter instead. Grab a chocolate milk from the fridge and and enjoy while sitting at the counter looking through the haze from the fryer hard at work.
