In Search of Lord of the Rings… “The Enduring Power of Donuts.”

What’s more American than Donuts? Maybe pizza or maybe neither. No one really knows the origins of donuts, the deep-fried antithesis of wellness; wellness that we spent hours discussing on our wellness page. There is one certainty, really good donuts are elusive, but not here in Vermont or at the King Bakery Donut Cart in Cambridge, New York. These donuts are worth getting up early for, and after a 45-minute drive you’ll understand why!

We also love the donuts at the Wells County Store, in the center of our tiny village, the Dorset Union Store on the Dorset Green makes exceptional donuts, and then there’s Mrs. Murphy’s Donuts in Manchester—donuts like we grew up with in the 1950s and 1960s.   

We’re always finding interesting things to do at Pond Mountain Inn!

Donuts Worth Getting up Early For Are From King Bakery Donut Cart

Kay and I were told to get there early, and we did, only to find 14 people ahead of us with the same idea. It was a refreshing 32° as we waited 20 minutes for our turn. Then, Kay sprang into action as I watched a team of 3-4 people ferrying donuts to the cart. We bought an assorted dozen and had to include a photo of this glorious donut that emerged as the most photogenic of the bunch and one we had to eat!

A donut experience that you’ll never forget along with a beautiful early Sunday morning drive it is worth the trip. You can experience these donuts for yourself at The King Bakery Donut Cart, located in Cambridge, New York, just under an hour’s drive from Pond Mountain Inn.  They are only open Sundays.
