Donuts and Nostalgia

Let’s go back in time with some good old-fashioned cake donuts and relics reminding us of years past.  

I was intrigued by the little donut shop in Crested Butte, Colorado.  It is mixed with delicious mini-donuts and nostalgia as well.

Nice, attractive Niky’s Donuts store front on Elk Avenue.

Niky’s Mini Donuts is a family owned and operated specialty donut shop & ice cream parlor located on the town’s main, historic road – Elk Avenue. 

“Our mini donuts are cooked fresh throughout the day and made to order just for you. We offer classic toppings like cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar and regular glaze plus lot of other fun toppings like Maple Bacon, Fruity Tooty, Death by Chocolate and Homer. We have over 24 different toppings to choose from!

We serve ice cream in a cup, cake cone and homemade waffle cone. Add a topping or even a donut to your cup or waffle cone to make it your own creation!”

Donuts adorn the serving area – quite enticing.  
Preferred toppings await design
Donuts are freshly made daily in this kitchen.
Ice cream awaits the discriminating taster.

A little Elvis and memory lane triggers the mind of years past.
More nostalgia

Yum! Yum! A must try when in Crested Butte. 

Blessings along the way!

  1. This is gonna sound weird, but I had a dream about donuts last night. I dreamed I was in line at a cafeteria and I wanted to buy one, but I couldn’t then I ended up stealing one… I crave donuts now and again, but I never actually EAT one. Anyway, thanks for a great post. Just when I think I could care less about sweets, they are in my dreams. LOL!

    1. That’s pretty neat though. At least you can eat them in your dreams. Thank you so much for your comments – and sharing your dream. More sweet dreams. 🙂

      1. Hint: I just chose a topic that I wanted to write about and did a Boolean search on Google: Cooking AND Quips and Idioms. A lot came up and I used the ones that I wanted. Just FYI. I thought it would be fun to have you participate since your photos are so wonderful! I would love to see some pictures with some quips, but if you decide to participate, do whatever you want to do.

    1. I know, right? Me too. You can have practically anything on them. I guess the good perspective is they are not that big. Of course, that may be bad also as one would be tempted to eat more. Such a dilemma. Thanks for your comments. 🙂
