If you love doughnuts then you need to find your way to Moonrise Doughnuts some evening soon!  Way back in the day there was a doughnut shop in Latonia where you could go late at night and get fresh doughnuts hot out of the fryer.  Moonrise Doughnuts is bringing back the nostalgia of eating fresh hot doughnuts in the night hours with their doughnut shop on Winston Avenue.

I am smitten with Moonrise Doughnuts, from the decor to the doughnuts.  The walls at Moonrise Doughnuts are adorned with old pictures of Latonia and the old Bakery in Latonia that used to make the late night doughnuts.  And the cases are filled with doughnuts of all sorts.  Moonrise Doughnuts offers a great selection of doughnuts, with one special flavor each night that is available hot out of the fryer.  We tried both the pre-made doughnuts and the hot out of the fryer doughnuts and they were both scrumptious!

The first time we visited Moonrise there was a pretty long line (to the door!), but quite frankly, the line moved quickly.  If you order the fresh hot doughnuts you will have to wait for a few minutes for them to be made, but I promise you that it is worth the wait for these tasty treats!

I love the old pictures on the walls…like this one of a baker making some late night doughnuts in Latonia back in the day…
