Hypnotic Donuts…first thing I think of when I hear that title, these donuts are so good they will put me to sleep. That is almost accurate – these donuts are really good, but my friend and I were surprised to find how light these donuts were. We bought a lot and yet we never felt like “ugh oh my gosh I am so stuffed!” It was more like, “wow I just ate four donuts and I feel pretty good, lets buy another one!”
Hypnotic Donuts was established in 2010 with a mission statement to “create the ultimate donut experience and have fun along the way” and they most certainly have. Since 2010 it has become the go to place for donuts in Dallas and set the stage for other creative donut shops. Today, they have more competition, but they continue to have fun and go beyond its boundaries. Besides being famous for their donuts they are also famous for their chicken biscuits. Yes Hypnotic Donuts sells chicken biscuits AND donuts and they are well received for both products. And lets be honest whats better than chicken biscuits and donuts in one place?
With their success Hypnotic Donuts created a second location in Denton, Texas in 2014 and recently opened Hypnotic Emporium, an ice cream, candy, soda shop next door to the original Hypnotic Donuts.
Guests can find it all at Hypnotic Donuts from crazy, creative donuts, classic donuts, vegan donuts, cake donuts, chicken biscuit and anything in between. Open everyday from as early as 6:30 in the morning (Monday through Friday) to as late as 2 in the afternoon (only on Sundays). Coffee lovers can enjoy some of Dallas’ finest local coffee from Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters.
Vanilla cake donut with a brown butter glaze and coarse pistachios on half the donut. The cake donut is not as light as the yeast donut, but nevertheless it was still not dense by any means. Great texture and natural sweetness in the dough. This donut had a thin layer of brown butter icing that tasted rich and had a beautiful flavor of caramel-nuttiness. The coarse pistachio enhanced the nuttiness of the donut and added a great contrast of texture to the soft donut.
