There has been a serious drought going on in Boulder for a few years now. I’m not talking about the diminishing snow levels but the lack of a quality donut store in town. I’m blaming all those pesky professional athletes and extreme dietary restrictions.
Sure, you could pick up a dozen at the supermarket but we can all agree that the quality doesn’t hold up. If you want a delicious donut, do you really have to drive to Louisville to satisfy your craving?
Not anymore! With Dizzy’s Donuts located near the intersection of Conestoga and Arapahoe, Boulder now has a destination donut place.
The owners knew that if they wanted to succeed in one of America’s top foodie towns, there were going to need to offer a delicious and gourmet version of the supermarket donut. Lucky for us, they’ve done just that.
With high-end flavors like creme brulee, key lime pie and maple bacon, Dizzy’s is not afraid to try new things. They have their own version of the traditional jelly-filled, but with the addition of peanut butter mousse, making it a PB & J (I can personally recommend this one). If you’re an old-school donut lover, have no fear. You can still find a classic glazed or original in the case right next to the fancy ones.
Dizzy’s started at the Erie Farmer’s Market in 2011 and would sell out of donuts every week. After that strong showing, it was time to find wider distribution. Ozo and Que’s were the first coffee shops in town to carry the donuts and from there, it was a short journey to opening a storefront in September of 2012.
As Jane Boggs-Guthrie, one of the owners of Dizzy’s, said, “People, even people in Boulder, want a good donut every now and again. We’ve been pleasantly surprised by the welcome reception we’ve received.”
Coming up on their first-year anniversary, Dizzy’s is definitely going strong. With a nice interior, good coffee and ample space for the kids to run off their sugar, Dizzy’s Donuts is a necessary stop for anyone looking for the best (and only) independent donut maker in town. Just get there early. They often sell out.
