Tasty Donut Cafe is a welcome addition to El Paso, where local donut shops are far and few between. Situated in the shopping center on the corner of Montwood and Saul Kleinfeld, this little shop even specializes in kolaches, stuffed croissants, biscuit sandwiches and breakfast tacos that are more like burritos.
Donuts are made fresh by hand throughout the day, and are rich without being heavy or greasy. Plain glazed and chocolate or strawberry iced are go-to standards, and some get topped with cereals like Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Fruity Pebbles and more. Everyone’s favorites are the maple bacon donut and the blueberry and red velvet cake donuts. Eclairs, Long John bars, apple fritters, cinnamon rolls and donut holes complete the variety of confections made daily. Kolaches, the Czech pastry made famous in Texas, come stuffed with pork sausage, smoked sausage, ham and cheese or sausage with cheese and jalapenos. Breakfast tacos come in a variety of sausage, egg, cheese, bacon and potato combinations on a flour tortilla.
What could possibly be better than an ice cream sandwich? Maybe a donut ice cream sandwich called the Leche Monster. Choose a donut to be halved and stuffed with an ice cream scoop of your choice and cereal toppings. If you don’t want to splurge, order up a scoop of ice cream for now and save the donut for tomorrow morning. There are eight flavors to choose from, including chocolate chip cookie dough, strawberry, cookies and cream and Italian cream cake. Tasty Donut also has plenty of beverage accompaniments for their treats including coffee, cappuccino, fountain drinks, smoothies and slushes. Smoothies and slushes come in fun flavors like peach, honeydew and taro.
Eastsiders have no excuse to ever show up empty handed to an event with this new local favorite.
