Are you the type of person to go to Dunkin’ Donuts when you have a craving for donuts? Do you think  that Dunkin’ Donuts has the best donuts? Well, if you are that type of person then I’m afraid I have to say, you’re wrong.

Firecakes has some of the best, most authentic, and flavorful donuts that you may enjoy. The servers are very polite and can put a smile on your face.

As I walked in, it was very packed. The restaurant had an extraordinary arrangement of donuts, and I was quite surprised about how large they were. They were WAY larger than what they look like on the photos only. They had a different variety of donuts- from coffee mousse filled donuts to coconut donuts. They all look extremely delicious! As I was browsing, I allowed a third customer to cut in front of me. She asked about the Birthday Cake Donut and, to be honest, I was quite intrigued about it as well. As the servers brought it out, I was really shocked at how huge they were! They were two huge donuts stacked and covered in a bunch of frosting and sprinkles!

The servers were exceptionally polite, especially when someone messed up. I felt that I couldn’t get angry at them at all, especially since one of the servers, who was in training.

The donuts themselves were somewhat larger than usual and are very flavorful. I tried the triple chocolate donut and the coffee donut. The triple chocolate donut was very crunchy and satisfying. I’m not a huge fan of chocolate, but when it comes to cakes, but I would try it again in the future. The coffee donut makes sure you taste the coffee. I thought, at first, it wouldn’t be much of a coffee donut, but the coffee mousse hit my mouth with flavor like a truck! Both donuts were fresh and very moist.

Some may find it overwhelming, and others may prefer Dunkin’ Donuts. We all have different opinions, even when it comes to food. Overall, these donuts are pack a punch in flavor.
