Five to Nine - A.M.

The Donut Palace on 118 North King Street is really hopping from 5:00 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. seven days a week!

Folks come here to talk about community and world events while drinking a cup of coffee and eating a doughnut. The place is always busy! The doughnuts are very very good and the service so professional and helpful.

This is one of those community places where it is just fun to be! I will always remember the second day after our home flooded in 1998 and we met at The Donut Palace at 5:00 a.m. with fellow 'evacuees' to drink a cup of coffee, eat a pastry, and commiserate with one another before heading to our homes in the Elmwood neighborhood to get started on the job of 'mucking' out our houses and seeing if anything was salvageable. [The first day of the flood we weren't allowed back into the neighborhood because of the danger and another round of flooding!]
