About Donut Monster:
Did you know you can have fresh donuts, made in small batches, from scratch right in the heart of Hamilton? Yes, located at Stackt Market at 28 Bathurst St, Toronto, Ontario, there is a place that offers all kinds of donuts that you can have for breakfast and even lunch, and is appropriately called Donut Monster.
There is no alcohol served here. Instead, the menu is filled with all kinds of donuts, milkshakes, and excellent coffee. The Donut Monster has two other locations, two in Hamilton, the original on Locke Street and a pop-up shop at 4 Cannon St. E.
Donut Monster is opened seven days a week, from Sunday to Wednesday from 11 AM to 8 PM, and from Friday to Sunday from 8 AM to 8 PM, or until most of the items are sold out. This eatery has been reviewed online on Yelp, Trip Advisor, and Google Reviews, and from these, I’ve made the following list of pros and cons.
- Great donuts
- Excellent coffee
- Pleasant, relaxing atmosphere
- Many traditional and vegan options
- Tasty milkshakes in plenty of options
- Notes on “heavy” taste of donuts
- Some people had notes about the price
The menu is, as I said above, simple: donuts, coffee, and milkshakes. The donuts are made from yeast-risen dough that is soft and light. The glaze flavours are different, and most are seasonally changing, and patrons get to enjoy flavours they did not expect ranging from classic apple fritter, dulce de leche, double coconut, strawberry balsamic, grape and ginger, cinnamon vanilla latte and even lemon with poppy seed filling.
The coffees served here are either espresso-based or drip-based, along with a wide selection of teas. Not to forget the milkshakes, there are traditional and vegan milkshakes, also ranging from traditional vanilla or chocolate to many seasonal flavours made with Hewitt’s Dairy or Rudy’s vegan ice cream. Also, you can have donuts at your next event, as they do catering and you can serve donuts on your birthday or wedding.
