Many of us could celebrate doughnut day every day, but June 8 is THE day to eat a doughnut, as it is Jelly-Filled Doughnut Day. Delightful Pastries has doughnuts filled with jelly every way you could imagine. Paczki doughnuts ($2-2.50) are a must have for any doughnut lover, filled with the assorted flavors of plum jelly, raspberry jelly and custard. If you need something to help kick start your day, try the boozy versions of the Paczki ($3.25), filled with whiskey, moonshine or vodka; they are a sure way make your day a little more memorable.
If a liquor filled doughnut is a bit too adventurous, instead go for Delightful Pastries’ masterful Danish ($2.50), an all-butter sweet dough filled with cherries, cheese, apricot, apple or raspberry or try a Blueberry Turnover ($1.70), a flaky puff pastry with Michigan blueberries.
And while you’re at it, enjoy yourself as you browse the wide range of breads, pastries, cookies, cakes, brownies and savory delights that have made Delightful Pastries one of the most beloved bakeries in the Chicago area.
