Donuts near christchurch city centre

by cinq Online Now Mar 13, 2006 at 10:27 PM

hi

I'm staying with a friend at Peterborough near the George. We have an extreme craving for some good donuts, ie. pretty light and fluffy rather than chewy and doughy. We tried some mini donuts from a stand near cathedral sq but could not find it again. Can anyone tell us where to find some nice donuts preferably near Cathedral Sq or Peterborough St or anywhere in between so we can walk there. As detailed directions as possible, we don't mind takeaway or sit down with caffeine. help!

thank you in advance!
Cindy

    If you want good donuts you're not going to find them in Christchurch!
    There are only a few "Dunkin Donuts" in NZ abd they are all in Auckland. There's a Donut King in Tauranga. - Both as far away as you can get from Christchurch!

    There is a company called "Lil Orbits" that does mini hot cinnamon donuts that generally run out of caravans. Im unsure if they have those in Christchurch or not though.

    If you get desperate and want the not so good kind you can try the bakery sections of Pak N Save or New World supermarkets (but from one Donut lover to another - im not recommending those!)

    Good Luck.
