It’s been said many times before… if the only donuts that you’ve ever had were from Timmy Ho’s or Krispy Kreme… you’ve never truly had a good donut. If you live in the Lower Mainland and you want a great donut, you have to stop by Lee’s Donuts down in Granville Island.
They have a big selection of sugar-coated filled donuts as well as regular cake donuts and specialty donuts.
If you get the French (cruller) donut, make sure you eat it right away because it tastes so much better when it’s fresh.
Along with the French and the regular chocolate donut, we also got the chocolate bavarian creme filled donut, the jelly filled donut, the mango filled donut and the apple filled donut. I think the mango and jelly filled ones were my favourite.
The good thing about Lee’s being in Granville Island is that there’s plenty of things to see as you walk off the calories from your purchase. If you’re in the mood for great waffles, head over to Patisserie Lebeau on West 2nd.
