Fonuts Cures Your Dessert Doldrums

Just Don't Call Them Donuts


You caught the cupcake bug, fell hard for fro yo, and made shaved ice a religion.

Next stop on your tour du dessert? The fonut.

Snag one at Fonuts, the new bakery from pastry chef Waylynn Lucas (The Bazaar by José Andrés) and pal Nancy Truman. It opens tomorrow in a cheery, modern space (zinc counters, patent leather paneling) in West Hollywood.

The fluffy confections are like the donut’s hipper, healthier cousin, baked fresh daily using quality ingredients, limited sugar, and seasonal fruit. Choose from original, gluten-free, and yeast-raised varieties in flavors like strawberry buttermilk, maple bacon, and the must-try banana and chocolate. Grab a cup of organic milk or Lamill coffee, perch yourself on a stool at the communal wood counter, and dunk ’til you drop.

It’s the holey trinity.

Fonuts, 8104 West Third Street, at South Crescent Heights Boulevard, West Hollywood (323-592-3075 or fonuts.com).
