This is a quick post to highlight one of the core tenets of Breakfast With Nick: always stop for donuts.
On the way back from a recent Cub Scout camping trip, Will and I were passing by Marysville. Having heard from various sources about a local donut shop, we made a quick detour to Mrs. Renison’s Donuts.
Mrs. Renison’s has all the makings of a community-favorite donut shop: a few decades of service under their belt, artwork from local students on the walls, a steady line of customers picking up multiple dozens, and a solid roster of house-made donuts.
I learned a little more about the history of Mrs. Renison’s from one of Ohio’s preeminent donut experts: CMH Gourmand.
I really loved the artwork in particular.
They had tray after tray of donuts available.
We selected a half dozen, relying on suggestions from the server at the counter. I like the square yeast glazed donut. Props to the cinnamon roll, too.
A couple of the filled donuts were under-filled, I thought, like the longjohn. General consensus: not our favorite donuts of all-time, but generally very good. You can see why they have staying power.
Just never forget to stop and smell the donuts. And pick up a half dozen or so.
