Oh you BADDDDDDD girl!!!! (or boy???)

IF the Shipleys donut on Potranco has opened yet across from the Freddies Frozen Custard (151 and Potranco) that would be my choice...and you two can drop a dz by our house and we will sit on the deck and enjoy some expresso and donuts on your way back home!

Does anyone know if it has opened up yet?? The location in the strip mall with the Kennedys pizza place.

I used to get those big holiday cookies for my girls when they were little. Hmmm, now that we are back in SA, I will start doing that again.

I 2nd the shipleys too bad it isnt open.

I saw a sign for a place called Tops Donuts on potranco near the valero and scholtzkys but it must not have done well because there was a FOR LEASE sign on the inside of the building and it looks empty

Not donuts, but try Walmart's bakery for biscuit cinnamon rolls with either regular or cream cheese frosting. Put them in the microwave about 20 seconds to warm and soften up.

Paka, I haven't seen you in forever! How have you been?

I think i saw people working in Shipleys one day, so it should be coming along soon, right? That Top Donuts was not good from what I remember. I had so much hope for it, but oh well! I have never had a shipleys donuts and from the sound of it, maybe I shouldn't start now.
