Larkin Development Group has successfully completed the new home for Paula’s Donuts, which opened this week, at 822 Seneca Street. Today was the second day of operation in Larkinville – this particular location also has a second entranceway onto Fillmore Avenue (at Smith Street), which is a direct link to the city’s East Side. When I spoke to a server behind the counter, I asked her what the customer reaction was like. She said that most people were surprised that they opened up at this location, but that they were very happy with the addition of the donut shop to the neighborhood.
Customers are also happy with the daily specials, and the various non-donut menu items that include breakfast sandwiches, bagels, deli sandwiches, smoothies, and coffee and tea. Of course the donuts* are the stars of the show, such as the headlight, honeydips, frosted jelly, peanut butter angels, cookie dough, Lucky Charms, Nutella cannoli, and countless others. There’s also the popular maple bacon cinnamon rolls, and the Texas donut, not to mention the donut holes, pastries, and cookies.
Yes, Paula’s Donuts will be an excellent addition to Larkinville, with its ever-growing “flavors” to choose from. It’s great to see some nice infill along Seneca Street, occupied by a beloved Buffalo institution. Hopefully the space next door will be filled soon enough, now that Paula’s is in full operational mode.
How about a Consumer’s Beverage?
*Certain donut flavors are considered “specials” and are offered on select days of the week.
