South Florida's only donut festival came back last week for another gathering of the best donut shops, all in the good name of United Way of Miami-Dade. Our contributor Celeste was the lucky duck who, on our behalf, enjoyed a night of gorging on Mojo Doughnuts, YoNutz, and other local and national donut greats at MAPS Backlot in Wynwood.
She had never been to a donut fest and was caught off guard by the amount of people vying for sugary goodness. ("I haven't seen lines that long since the launch of the last iPhone.") Despite the crowds, Celeste had an incredible time trying all of the unique donut flavors, alternating them with savory finds, and washing them down with Concrete Beach Brewery beers. In fact, she started a petition to have Donuts! Fest in Miami more than once per year.
Below we share photos of Celeste's favorite donut finds, including Jupiter Donuts' mango cayenne pepper which received her vote. Did you attend? Which donut shop was your favorite? Which flavor won your vote? Leave a comment below or send us a tweet (with a photo!) @ThankYouMiami.
