Ten Best Doughnuts in Broward and Palm Beach
8. Max's Harvest
Max's Harvest Dessert-like doughnuts for brunch? Why not?
OK, so it's not a bakery or coffee shop, but Max's Harvest in Delray Beach does serve one hell of a homemade doughnut. Just like the Wine Dive, it's a special served for brunch and comes paired with a few icing-inspired dipping sauces to make the taste-trip complete. You get the doughnut and the hole that used to reside in the center. Plus, Max's is known for its locally sourced, organic ingredients, so that makes this doughnuts practically healthy. Right? Yeah, we're going to choose to believe that's how it works.
7. Master Cake Bakery
Sara Ventiera The Master Cake Bakery's own "cronut."
By now, we're sure you've heard enough of us extolling the many virtues of the Pembroke Pines Master Cake Bakery owned by European-trained, Israeli-born pastry chef Mickey Grunberger, who opened the kosher bakery about a month ago. The "cronut-like" doughnuts here have been dubbed "doissants," and Grunberger, a second-generation kosher baker, makes just 50 of them from scratch daily using traditional French and Hungarian baking techniques. Although you won't find any other type of traditional American fried dough here, you can browse the bakery's display cases filled with fresh pastries, custom cakes, challah bread, danishes, rugelach -- and, yes, croissants.
