Are doughnuts the new cupcake? In the ever changing world of trendy foods and handheld sweet treats, it looks like there might be a new sherif in town. Don’t worry though. In Chicago, there IS room for the both of them. This doughnut shop has found a home in River North.
The place: Firecakes; 68 W Hubbard St. Chicago, IL
That’s right. It is on Hubbard. Across from Paris Club and down the street from Hub/Sub 51. Even though it is on a street known for its late-night-weekend scene, it is only open until 3:30 in the afternoon. So, you won’t be getting your sweet tooth fix post-Social 25. But, they are just as good during the day. Firecakes is no more than a corner store with just enough room for a few trays of doughnuts. BUT the doughnuts speak for themselves and don’t need the fluff of a cafe setting.
