Angel’s Donuts & Ice Cream

tonallistrawberryfilledWhen visiting Portland doughnut shops to write this section of the website, I learned a lot about doughnut shop culture. For one thing, very old men love doughnut shops. With only a few exceptions, most every doughnut shop had a cheerful resident octogenarian or two.  This old school doughnut and ice cream shop on NE Alberta was no exception. Their octogenarian should have been on the payroll, because he greeted us, told us the best doughnuts to get (apple fritter, bearclaw, old-fashioned), and directed us towards the milk. But then, with 12 feet of three-tiered packed-to-the-gills doughnut cases filled with every sort of doughnut you could ever need or want, hot Portland Roasting Company coffee on tap, both chocolate and 2% milk in the fridge, and free WiFi so you can play online Bingo, there are probably worse places to spend your golden doughnut-eating years.
