All Day Donuts
12 Edwards Street
Brunswick Vic 3056

First thing to note is that All Day Donuts is only open Friday – Sunday. I didn’t realise this, and went down there on a Wednesday hanging for donuts only to be disappointed (by my own doing of course. Note to self, always check open hours).
When I finally made it back last week, I was so excited to get into
some great donuts. I ended up buying the strawberry cheesecake donut, the donut filled with passionfruit custard and coated in coffee icing and finally the ring donut coated in chocolate icing and sprinkled with mint rubble.
I love chocolate, so I couldn’t wait to get into the ring donut and I have to say, I was disappointed. I looked so much better than it tasted. The biggest let down for me was that it was quite dry. Each to their own, but I love a soft doughie donut, and this wasn’t that.
However they redeemed themselves with the two filled donuts, especially the strawberry cheesecake. I’m not usually into anything strawberry, but this donut was delicious! It was soft and doughie, the icing had set beautifully and the custard centre was just perfect.
It’s definitely worth the trip to Brunswick, but my tip is to get into their custard donuts, you won’t regret it.
