When you fancy a donut, where do you head to? Krispy Kreme? Dunkin’ Donuts? Do you pick some up from your local supermarket? Well, I’ve found out recently that the best donuts are those that are (locally) handmade and delivered straight to your door…
R Place began as a pop up in 2017 providing speciality coffee, donuts and classic rock tunes. As well as attending events such as Festival of Thrift and Freshers Fair, R Place offers delivery of 12 or 24 donuts straight to your door.
There is a huge selection of donuts available from a ‘Unicorn’, or ‘Cuppa Tea’ to vegan offerings such as ‘Rum Pineapple’ or ‘Pumpkin Spiced’, there’s literally a flavour for everyone.
I went for a ‘Funfetti’, ‘Pink Himalayan Salted Caramel’, Chai Fudge’ and ‘Gold Bar’. Of course, they weren’t all for me, I had to share them with the other half. Unfortunately. My favourite was the Pink Himalayan Salted Caramel. It was out of this world!
R Place will be at Hadrian’s Tipi in Sunderland from 15th October to 7th January. I’m hoping to visit this year as I’ve not got around to it the last couple of years. If you can’t wait that long to try the yummy donuts you can order them online here and have them delivered straight to your door. Who wouldn’t want to sit in their pj’s with a cuppa and a fresh donut!?
