    “Twink-nut – golden vanilla cake, buttercream filling, vanilla glaze ($2.50)”

    Twink nuts are my favorite, especially on Friday at Town.

    This is the exact same concept/menu as Federal Donuts in South Philly

    A menu with “Twink-nuts” but no Bear Claws? I’m outraged.

    $2.25 for a single glazed donut? Yikes.

    I’ll stick with my Giant glazed donuts at $3/dozen.

    • Anon

      I know, right? That’s $30 for a dozen!

        More $$ but totally worth the price. Was lucky enough to try one and it is made with the best ingredients and the taste, well, yummy!

    Does the M-F specials schedule indicate that they won’t be open on the weekends? Kind of a bummer for people who actually live in the city…
