The West End just got doughier. Blue Star Donuts, the scratch-doughnut operation by Little Big Burger's Micah Camden and Katie Poppe, officially opens today in the twelve | west building — and to celebrate, the spot is handing out free glazed doughnuts all day today, starting at 10a.m. while supplies last.
The spot's opening also reveals Camden's closely-held doughnut menu, which as promised, offers savory-minded, "knife-and-fork required" options like a doughnut with fried chicken and honey butter (not forthcoming, Camden says, is any kind of donut-as-burger-bun/Little Big Burger hybrid). Other sweet options: a dulce de leche with almonds; coffee and coconut cheesecake; and a meyer lemon and key lime curd.
Blue Star's hours moving forward: Monday through Friday, 7a.m. to 7p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 8a.m. to 7p.m.
