  • are you serious? i can only pick 5? im looking at the menu now...i think the menu selection is GREAT but i understand needing to narrow it down for works sake. is it possible to keep the full menu for a couple of months and see what sells, and whittle it down from there? just a thought...im still looking trying to decide...

  • i just noticed on the cinnamon toast under the swirls originals, it has too many "with"s. it should say "by" instead of "with". sorry....im being picky...

  • ok. so im will be of no help. ive done restraunt stuff before, in fact, im a well, i guess you could say cook for a swanky outfit...i have experience in this stuff...but it all sounds GREAT! i say keep as much of the menu as you can, and see what sells and what doesnt. since so much of it is different from what you can get at your average donut place, it may really take of...GOOD LUCK!

  • Looks great, just a comment on the way its typed... under the classics, most are typed with capital first letters, then down the list some of the items have some caps and some not.

    I like some of the original flavors you have!

  • It looks great and sounds great too! My first thought was that everything on the menu is sweet. I do realize it is a bakery menu, but not everyone eats sweets. Perhaps add some menu items to cater to the non-sweet eaters: kolaches with various ingredients: boudain, sausage, etc.

  • rcbrown, you know I had the same idea, but my landlord is saying that a business in the same strip mall is having issues with my breakfast burritos. Grrrr, so to keep the peace, I took them off :( I will have fruit cups though for a healthy alternative. I am still humoring a breakfast item other than sweets though. To tell you the truth, I like doughnuts, but steer clear of them because I get so sleepy after eating them! LOL
