        oh very cool! It still cracks me up that you and I were practically bumping into each other on the roadside last weekend! Great minds think alike 🙂

      As a lifelong fan of Krispy Kreme here in Florida (and a favorite location in Spartanburg, South Carolina that was always a must-stop while in route to the NC mountains), I was thrilled to see this post. I think I’m a sucker for donut shops. There used to be a Mr. Donut in Bradenton, Florida on Tamiami Trail that had a great vintage sign and a zig-zag roofline (why don’t they make those anymore?!). The donut shop is gone, but I think the remnants of the building may still be there.

      I was one of those that would always spin the bar stools as much as I could get away, always sneaking in a slow-spin approach after being scolded to still get the effect obviously intended by the designers of the stool!

      And if you were to insert the words, “station wagon” where you wrote mini-van, your description could have been right out the the 1960s!

        Jeff – it’s funny when I realize that there are certain businesses, activities and foods tend to lend themselves to Retro Roadmappiness (and happiness!) and donuts are definitely one of them for me. This was an unexpected treasure of a find that makes a road trip so much fun.
        I have to admit that while I love KK donuts, I do hold a huge grudge against the company for buying out the location of the Russo’s Candy House on Route 1 in Saugus MA, tearing down the classic vintage location to replace it with a KK that I think lasted all of 2 years. There were plenty of other places they could’ve chosen, but I now don’t like KK at all because of their destruction of Russo’s.
        It does make it even better to go to Kane’s Donuts in Saugus for delicious donuts! Heck I may need to start a Donut category to make these sweet treats even more searchable!

      Thank you for this posting. I looove Maple Donuts and have been trying to get my husband to join me on a pilgrimage to their awesome retro shop in York. Your photos and commentary sealed the deal.

        Amy – I’m sure you and your husband won’t be disappointed by their tasty treats and throwback decor! You’ll be right around the corner from the Big Shoe in Hellam, so make a day of it!
