Indigo’s concierge recently got a stack of coupons–tempting little flyers that promise beautiful things to those wise enough to take one.
Today I grabbed the flyer for Mr. Jolly’s Coffee and Bar, located at 9th and Everett. The coupon promised me a dozen mini doughnuts for only 25 cents, with the minimum purchase of a coffee. Excuse me? Buy my morning coffee and get a dozen freshly made doughnuts thrown in? Yes, please!
So this morning I wandered over to Mr. Jolly’s to check this deal out. First of all, I feel like I’ve discovered a new hang-out place. The coffee bar is Roaring 20′s theme, with antique decorations, a chalk menu, and (get this) live swing music! Oh, yes, I can definitely see myself there on a dark night, sipping wine and tapping my toes.
But back to the doughnuts. I sipped my latte while peering through the window as they dropped the little morsels of joy into the fryer. Out they came on a little belt and into the chocolate and powered sugar they went. Packaged in a white paper bag, I finally had them in my hands. Then, deliciously, in my mouth.
Moral of the story? Always take flyers. Especially if they have anything to do with doughnuts. The other moral: go to Mr. Jolly’s, because freshly made mini doughnuts dipped in chocolate and powered sugar are completely worth it.
