One morning earlier this week I woke up with a penchant for doughnuts. But not just any doughnuts, Holey Moley doughnuts. If you’re not a Milwaukee-ian you probably don’t know what I am talking about. Holey Moley is best described as doughnuts sent from doughnut heaven to fill the void in our empty doughnut souls. Seriously though, Holey Moley makes some spectacular doughnuts. Holey Moley makes an array of doughnuts, fresh, every morning including cake, yeast, filled, fritters and some are even gluten and vegan friendly.
It took no convincing Harrison to hop out of bed and roll out on our bikes down to Holey Moley. The gods must have loved us that day because it was Holey Moley’s 1 year anniversary and they were giving out…wait for it…FREE DOUGHNUTS! I felt a renewed sense of hope upon finding this out and I’m pretty sure that I saw a tear in Harrison’s eye. So naturally we got extra doughnuts besides the free ones they were doling out. We took the free doughnuts home with us and ate them later on in the week which turned into the perfect mid-morning treat. I got the Vanilla Cream and Harrison got the PBC (peanut butter chocolate). Vanilla Cream might sound like the most boring option to choose out of all the interesting and creative flavors Holey Moley specializes in but the creamy vanilla filling is so classically irresistible. Harrison was relieved that they changed the PBCB (peanut butter chocolate bacon) as he had just made the switch into the world of vegetarianism with me. He told me the PBC was actually better than the PBCB, shocking I know!
Holey Moley gets even better because they serve amazing coffee too. As stated in our previous post, we’re on the hunt for the best coffee in Milwaukee. Holey Moley might just be up there at the top but our findings are currently inconclusive. Holey Moley serves coffee from Hawthorne Coffee Roasters which upon further research on the web, Hawthorne is a Milwaukee coffee roaster that vends out of Holey Moley, various farmer’s markets in the area and another local Milwaukee restaurant. I must admit that Harrison and I are kind of caffeine addicts and we normally don’t feel that “caffeine kick” anymore… except when drinking Hawthorne’s coffee; we get that same ecstatic feeling we used to get when we started drinking coffee many many years ago. Most coffee drinkers in Milwaukee know that strong coffee and Milwaukee are just two words that go together, but if they haven’t tired Hawthorne’s then they haven’t seen nothing yet.
If you love strong coffee and doughnuts sent from the gods like us, let us know your favorite places to get your fix.
See you soon!
