What's fresh? That's the question savvy doughnut hunters ask when they breach the threshold at Minneapolis mainstay Mel-O-Glaze. The great news is that there's always something fresh: It might be a classic old-fashioned buttermilk cake doughnut ($.75) with its light, fresh bite like a gingham-perfect Midwestern morning. It might be a big, crispy apple fritter ($1.50), a Frisbee-sized mash and drizzle of cinnamon goodness. It might be a raised and glazed twist ($1), a yeasty, iced doughnut that delivers such a glorious, buoyant, rainbows-in-the-cloud pleasure that it makes Krispy Kremes taste like low-rent grease-bombs. If you're going to eat a doughnut, why would you eat anything less than the very best there is? When you get your doughnut, be sure to note the cheapest cafe latte in town at $2, and darn good, too.
