Morgantown Edition: Peace, Love, and Little Donuts

Peace Love & Little DonutsPeace, Love and Little Donuts, which I know from its Strip District location, just opened in the Suncrest Towne Centre between the No. 1 Super Buffet and the nail salon. The hippie-themed mini donut shop, whose owner seems to have some opinions contrary to the message of the shop, has about 20 or so locations across the country. For me, these mini cake donuts are a welcome addition to this town mostly void of donuts, save for large chain shops.

Peace Love & Little DonutsMy friend Heather saw that this place was open, so she scooped me up after work and we met some friends here. It was literally the first day they were open, so menus weren't up and neither were prices. But the important thing is that the donuts were ready to go.

Peace Love & Little DonutsSo, the shop serves up delicious mini cake donuts in three categories: Groovy (plain, sugared, powdered or glazed), Far Out (with frosting), Funkadelic (customized or special toppings). The funkadelic are the fun, special ones that you can see in the photos.

Peace Love & Little DonutsWhile waiting in line, we were handed a free sample cinnamon sugar donut. So, that prompted me to order five mini donuts to fill a six-pack. Makes sense, right? OK, here were my choices.

Peace Love & Little DonutsBirthday Cake: vanilla icing dipped in streusel/sprinkle mix
Strawberry Cheesecake: cream cheese, graham cracker, 2-3 strawberries
S'mores: chocolate icing, graham cracker, chocolate drizzle, 3 mini marshmallows

My favorite was definitely the Salted Caramel Macchiato, which was just amazing. The others were all good, but that was my standout. My friends also got a variety of donuts that I wanted to show ya!
