There’s a sweet bready smell in the air at Orwasher’s Bakery. It’s as inviting as the friendly service. Yes, it’s true, I rarely make it up to Yorkville and the Upper East Side, but Orwasher’s alone is worth a trip. Especially for a jelly doughnut fanatic such as myself. Orwasher’s has large pillowy doughnuts that are filled to order with your choice of strawberry, raspberry, sour cherry, blueberry or other fillings.
Wow, I’ve never seen filled-to-order jelly doughnuts before. And the fillings are like preserves, not the standard blood-red goo in most commercial jelly doughnuts.
The bread looks amazing here, and I opted for a the seasonal pumpkin loaf, which was out of this world good with a little butter and sprinkle of cinnamon.
