|creme brulee donut|
We were in Raleigh, NC for most of August and, lucky for us, the RTP area is host to a couple new doughnut spots. We tried Monuts Donuts from Durham which were tasty, but in our bleary-eyed and hungry morning state we scarfed them before we remembered to take pictures.
Another new gem in the area is Rise Biscuits & Donuts (be still, my heart), also located in Durham.

|Doughnuts, L-R: kids donut, chocolate chocolate, and creme brulee|
The kid's donut was nothing to shout about, too small to be moist, but the cake was very nice. The creme brulee, however, was a cream-filled yeast with a bruleed sugar crust that was both an interesting variation on the old cream-filled and a satisfying array of textures.
Next up: another donut post.
