Peace Love and Little Donuts
“Feed Your Inner Hippie”
I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t like donuts- circular gobs of dough with a hole in the center, deep-fried, and dipped in a sugary coating… what’s not to like?
When I came upon Peace Love and Little Donuts in Monroeville, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. The name threw me a bit, and the building was oddly shaped. I had to investigate.
“Welcome to Peace Love and Donuts- would you like to try a cinnamon sugar donut?” Well sure I would. A jovial, young, worker popped out from behind the counter and handed me my complimentary treat. We’re off to a good start.
The donuts served at this particular shop are untraditional- they’re smaller, and cakey. My sample was warm and sweet.
Instead of choosing from an assortment, the donuts are prepared for you while you wait. Yeah- you heard me. You get to pick the topping you want, and the workers dip, drizzle, and decorate right in front of you. Cool, right?
Available flavors and toppings are: Cinnamon Sugar, Powdered Sugar, Saigon Cinnamon, Ginger Sugar, Honey Glazed, and Maple Sugar. Frostings include: Vanilla, Chocolate, Maple, Raspberry, Strawberry, Orange, Banana, Lemon and Mocha.
If you want to try a Funkadelic donut, your choices are Maple Bacon, S’mores, Salted Chocolate, Cherry Cheesecake, Apple Pie, Samoa, Raspberry Lemonade, and Boston Cream Pie- the flavor combinations are endless.
The donuts are made daily, and impeccable fresh. Expect to finish one in two, maybe three bites.
Peace Love and Donut has a cool vibe to it- its charm, delicious product and extremely friendly staff make it a must-visit!
