lolifemke: While in need of a desperate sweet treat and escape from campus during my finals week I revisited and rediscovered a hidden gem on the Milwaukee’s easy east. This sweet treat emergency called for none other than a few sugared mini doughnuts from the drive-thru on Oakland, formerly known as Sil’s. Well actually many still call it Sil’s in disbelief that the beloved mini doughnut stop left the East Side.
Located right down the street from my favorite east sider restaurant, Bean and Barley, a bite out of a freshly made, warm mini doughnut was just the fix I needed to cure my study stresses and woes.
I first discovered the little doughnut shop while being filmed for a Dear MKE video doc. My camera crew for the day, Jessica and Pang took me out for a mini adventure of my own and shared with me the wonderful creation of mini doughnuts. Melt in your mouth goodness, it was true love at first bite.
Fresh donuts on a cold winter night? You got the right idea.
