If you don't have a donut near your mouth then you're doing Friday all wrong. Today is National Donut day, so here are some shops I think you should visit in honor of this savory holiday. This list is not in any particular order, so don't kill me.
Le Cave's Bakery:
This South Tucson bakery has been a guilty pleasure of mine since I was old enough to swallow. If you're not a fan of their donuts, try their delicious empanadas because everyday is empanada day. Le Cave's is open until 5 p.m. and they're located at 1219 S. Sixth Ave.
La Estrella Bakery
: La Estrella specializes everything from wedding cakes to tortillas. The bakery has been highlighted by Forbes, so I guess that's worth something. There are two locations: The 120 S. Avenida del Convento location is open until 6 p.m. The original bakery is open until 7 p.m., and it's located at 5266 S. 12th Ave.
: This bakery is Barrio Hollywood's danity secret, so you didn't hear it from me. The exterior isn't much, but it's filled with freshly baked goods that are finger licking good. If you're not down with the "D", try their dinner menu because it's Friday and you deserve to treat yourself for all the hard work you (don't) do. Their albondigas (meatball) soup is to die for. The shop is open until 7 p.m., and you can find them at 901 N. Grande Ave.
: When I lived near Pima and Swan, I used to go to Frank's for breakfast and pick up donuts to bring to the office so my boss didn't fire me for being late, again. The shop might looked closed even if the "open" sign says otherwise. Alvernon Donuts pastries and goods make up for the shops cosmetic imperfections. Don't wait because they close at 3 p.m. The corner shop is located at 1450 S. Alvernon.
