After reading about the Juicy Kitchen in this month’s Ann Arbor Observer, Dave and I decided to try it for breakfast last weekend. It’s located near the intersection of Miller and Maple and it’s very tiny inside with enough seats for maybe 18 people, but probably less. We heard their baked donuts were particularly good so we each ordered one to enjoy with our coffee, Dave went with chocolate and I went with coconut. In addition to being baked as opposed to fried, the donuts at Juicy Kitchen are made with spelt flour. They were dense and moist and delicious. I thought the coconut added great flavor.
Dave ordered a simple egg and cheese slider, sliders with the veggies of the day or bacon are also available. The sandwich was simple, but it was very good. The bread had a nice texture, the egg cooked well, and the cheese added nice flavor. In addition to the cheese was a mystery sauce that was very tasty. I’m guessing it had Frank’s Red Hot in it, but I could be wrong. Either way it was delicious!
I ordered the French toast which was made out of Avalon organic soft whole wheat bread layered with cream cheese, maple syrup caramelized apples, cinnamon, and raisins. It was topped with toasted walnuts and served with warm maple syrup. The toasted walnuts were a particularly nice touch. Both items came with fruit.
We actually shared both entrees so we could try both a sweet and savory option. Their menu is small (they also serve lunch), but I think I would find plenty to order next time, which there will definitely be even if it’s just for a donut.
