Through following several Asheville natives on Instagram and having a sweet-tooth unlike any other I stumbled upon several pictures of mouthwatering doughnuts via a company called Vortex doughnuts.
While spending the weekend visiting my friends in Asheville the first stop on our agenda was Vortex. We arrived around 10 am on a Saturday and they were already fairly busy, constantly refilling the empty doughnut trays. The atmosphere is very chill and casual, and all walks of people come in to relax with a cup of coffee or buy a dozen to go. The baristas are educated on their products and welcoming to out of towners.
On our first go around (yes we happened to stop by again later that day) we choose an Apple Fritter, a Chai Spice yeast doughnut, and an Espresso doughnut. After sampling them all, they were delicious and warm, fresh out of the oven, and the amount of sweet on top was not overpowering but the right amount.
If you're ever in the Asheville area I highly suggest stopping by and checking them out.
