Kansas City – Doughnut Lounge
**This restaurant is no longer open.***
Inside Kansas City’s trendy Westport neighborhood is a hidden gem. This hidden gem shines morning and night. I’m talking about the Doughnut Lounge. Donut shop by day, Lounge by night.
They have all the regular morning classics like glazed and chocolate donuts, but that’s not what attracted me. I wanted the bacon! On their signature menu, I found a maple bacon long john, complete with a full slice of premium thick cut bacon. This is what I’m taking about!
As you would expect from any good donut, it was soft and delicious….like a party for the taste buds. The salt of the bacon is a perfect complement to the sweet of the donut.
The Doughnut Lounge also features the Irish Breakfast, a Bismarck style donut filled with a whiskey orange marmalade and a bacon square.
Speaking of whiskey….the donut lounge features a full drink menu, featuring alcoholic drinks, teas and coffees. If you would prefer something besides a donut, the kitchen serves a light menu of breakfast options. A big breakfast includes two eggs, fried potatoes, toast, and not two, but three slices of delicious bacon!
Doughnut Lounge has a food truck located at 1250 Burlington in North KC, and is expected to open a Kansas location in early 2018. Look for them in downtown Overland Park, across from the farmers market.
Check out the Donut Lounge anytime day or night, to get your donut (and bacon) fix!
Until next time,
