….to Britt’s Donuts! I’ve lived in the Cape Fear region for 5 years now and I have never been to Britt’s Donuts in Carolina Beach at the Boardwalk. That all changed this morning.
The General and I headed down to Kure Beach this morning to hang out. The waves were nice, but I didn’t bring my board because he said there weren’t any waves on the beach cam. We took the boogie boards out, but my board rash from yesterday’s awesome session on my 6’2 short board (that I can stand up on if I squat down – it’s really pathetic surfing wise, but I had a blast!) kept me from boogie boarding properly. So we sat on the beach awhile, as I was still half awake.
We decided to get breakfast and get some espresso in me. Our 1st stop was Majik Beanz, a hippy-dippy coffee shop off the main drag in CB. I got a latte with some chocolate vanilla in it and I am in heaven. We then walked to the boardwalk for donuts. Now, I’m not a big donut fan. It’s the one sweet treat I can say no to. I don’t crave them. I usually am very picky (chocolate) about what kind (chocolate) I like; no glaze (chocolate), no cream-filled stuff (chocolate). I was skeptical, but everyone I know raves about this place so I had to try it.
Oh. My. God. Amazing. They melt in your mouth. My mouth wasn’t watering, it was crying for more Britt’s Donuts. I told the General we had to leave before I bought another one. And other one. I could have finished off an entire dozen myself (if only it all went to my boobs…..). It’s a good thing that they are only open during the tourist season and only take cash – I rarely carry cash. I will be back! And they’re 85 cents a piece.
Another fun spot introduced to me by Samantha was
The Fuzzy Naval The Peach Belly Button The Fuzzy Peach. They have one up off Racine, downtown, and soon to be Monkey Junction. It’s heaven. All sorts of flavors of frozen yogurt with EVERY TOPPING YOU CAN IMAGINE! From fruit to crushed up graham cracker to anything with chocolate, holy cow, it’s an amazing experience. You pay based on weight, you get to fill yours up! I joked they have one in heaven, but when you get to the cash register, Jesus shows up and says, “No, it’s okay. I got this, it’s paid for.” Samantha, Charlotte and I sat around eating these amazing creations and catching up since it had been forever since we chatted. We just need our Miranda and we’d be all set.
I live in paradise.
