Have you ever walked into a coffee and pastry shop and knew you had discovered a gem? That’s how I felt when I walked into Stan’s Donuts. The one I stumbled upon was off Michigan Ave, near the magnificent mile, but Google is telling me there are eight in the greater Chicago area.
From the moment I walked in, I was mesmerized. They had a rotating cooling unit that held the gelato, a counter full of colorful donuts, and the cutest aesthetic you’ve ever seen.
Everything looked delicious, but I had already eaten lunch so I limited myself to a gelato shake with a mini donut on top. It definitely lived up to expectations; the shake hit the spot and the donut was an added bonus.
If you are ever in the Chicago area and craving a good donut, be sure to check out Stan’s Donuts. The colorful donuts not only taste good, they also make a perfect Instagram picture.
