Julie Darling Donuts is on Chattanooga's north side, a pretty hip neighborhood. I freely admit that their "Home of the Donut Sundae" sign caught my eye. The shop is very spacious and inviting. I sat in a faux 50's living room with a view of the kitchen.
This is a classic American donut. The coating is very sweet. The donut itself is an excellent example of the cake donut. The temptation in donut making is to add flour to the dough, which makes it easier to handle but also tougher. These donuts were extremely tender. The coffee was typical strong donut coffee.
