There are a lot of tough decisions I’ve made lately: Wear the black or cream turtleneck? Wash my hair after a week or let it ride for an extra three days? Thankfully, choosing which perfectly fried mini donut to get from Donut Savant in Oakland’s Allendale isn’t one of them. That’s because all the donuts, from the cinnamon rolls and apple fritters to vanilla-glazed bars are unbelievably priced - the mini donuts are 50 cents to $1. So, get one of each and don’t think twice. One decision that may trip you up - which of the delicious donut-croissant hybrids (which they technically call ‘cron’ts’) to get. If you’re unsure, salted maple all the way.
