Firecakes Donuts Reviews
For sure some of the best donuts I’ve eaten in my life. I tried the carrot cake and the old fashion pistachio. I walked across town twice to obtain donuts from this location because they were so good. The texture is incredible and the donuts are dense but have a beautiful lightness to them. They’re also not overpoweringly sweet which is nice. Just the perfect balance of everything. The employees were incredibly kind, too. Obviously like being there and make you feel very welcome. Great location and the case was fully stacked with donuts.
firecakes has some insanely good donut flavors and combinations. They’ve got a little truck that parks on weekends and offers a wide variety of specialty flavors and the prices are fair. I love love love the plain old fashioned they have. Unfortunately they were out this morning at the little truck so I got the seasonal fritter (cherry)! It was tasty – not too sweet and a great tart cherry flavor. Def recommend getting them fresh from the actual locations or from the truck if you come across it!!!
Nothing beats a delicious donut with a hot cup of coffee. The green donut is what caught my eye…and I’m glad it did! They call it the “Pistachio Old Fashioned” – was delicious and different.
An amazing experience overall. Staff very nice. Got myself a Apple Cider, Chocolate and Orange Cranberry Old Fashioned for the road.
Their donuts (especially their old fashioneds) are delicious, and the service is always good, but their fritters are consistently lacking; there is never enough fruit in them. Firecakes is also NOT cheap, & sometimes it feels like one isn’t really getting their money’s worth…. there are other donut shops in the city that offer higher quality baked goods.
On our way to Lincoln Park Zoo, we stopped by Firecake Donuts for some delicious snack. And Delicious it was….we got the donut with pistachio and the other one with coconut cream. The pistachio one was a bit too sweet for our taste but we both enjoyed it. Me and my boyfriend both agreed that the coconut cream donut was HEAVENLY, everything was balanced and it was DELICIOUS. Not only did we enjoy the donuts, we also loved the customer service they provided.
You will never go to Dunkin again. Delicious doughnuts and fun seasonal flavors. Beware the price tag, best reserved for special occasions.
Verdict – would go back and recommend to a friend.
It never disappoints and it never will. Unique flavors and having an ice-cream scoop between 2 donuts is a great idea!
Surprisingly delicious and moist vegan gluten-free donut. Only one vegan donut though and I like trying new flavors
good donuts. interesting flavors and a decent outdoor area to enjoy them! we got the sprinkle and chocolate cake donuts.
Travis AKA Doughboy Food Reviews
Firecakes Donuts: The story of this donut shop begins with the owner’s grandfather, who was a baker in the logging camps of northern Wisconsin in the 1930’s. He was renowned throughout the region for his unique bread, and after acquiring a round dough cutter, the first “firecakes” were born. Their current secret recipe is based off the original.
For my first visit to the shop I went with the “Peanut Butter Cup”. It’s a yeast bismark filled with whipped Skippy peanut butter mousse. On top is a Valrhona chocolate icing & a candied-peanut sprinkle. I found the doughnut to have a great soft and chewy texture and it was obvious that it was freshly made. I got it because I love peanut butter and the filling did not disappoint, in fact I enjoyed it more than the peanut butter buttercream in my favorite MKE doughnut shop Cranky Al’s (Firecakes is more like actual peanut butter, but I like that Cranky Al’s has vanilla icing and sprinkles). Doughboy approved, although it makes me kind of sad that there isn’t one in MKE since it technically began in WI.
*My friend got the “Buttermilk Old Fashioned” and “Tahitian Vanilla” and was nice enough to let me sample them. For a cake doughnut the Buttermilk was surprisingly good and while it was nothing revolutionary the Tahitian will easily please vanilla fans
My top doughnut shops:
1. Cranky Al’s (MKE)
2. Krispy Kreme (various locations in different states)
3. Donut Bar (California & Arizona locations)
4. Hurts Donut Co. (various locations in different states)
