Do you ever just crave donuts? Like you just need a donut fix? I’ve been thinking about donuts for a while, and am always drooling over the Instagram posts by Purvé. I’ve actually had these super popular treats at parties before, but this was my first trip to their actual shop.
Side note: Do you ever avoid a place, because you know that once you’ve been there it’ll be too easy to go back? Not only is this place conveniently located in town (near Ala Moana Shopping Center), but it has a ton of parking. I’m in trouble.
I actually went in on a Sunday, after working out at the gym. I picked up 6 donuts, including their Weekly D, a special flavor that changes every week. I brought them home and did a mini photo shoot, because they were so beautiful. I will say that the next time I’m there, I’m going to sit down at one of their tables outside and eat a donut straight away, because they’re nice and warm. You actually watch them come out of that fryer thing and see them get drizzled and topped. Let’s take a closer look at these yummies.
Bright and fun paintings throughout this shop makes it such a happy and magical place.
The nitty gritty: it’s $3.25 each for 1-5 donuts, $3.00 each for 6-11 donuts, and $2.75 each for 12 or more donuts. You can place an order on their website and pick it up, or just walk in and place an order in person. Have you been to Purvé? What’s your favorite donut? Let me know in the comments!
