After a filling meal at Mirch Masala, we headed next door to Jellie D's. I've driven by it on my way to and from work for the last 4 years. I was totally intrigued by this place since the "Jellie D's" sign is so appealing. Yes, I was attracted by the sign, it's kind of pathetic.
Anyways, upon entering, I was quite confused as to what this place was actually about. To the right, there is an eating area, which is not really all that confusing. But directly in front of me was a counter reminiscent of an old soda shop, complete with stools surrounding it. Okay... To my left, there was ice cream, directly behind that were the donuts. Looking at the menu board, I found everything from Fish n Chips to Fish Pakora. Then I found drinks that ranged from specialty coffees to bubble tea?!?!? Uh... Was I in a donut shop or an international food fair? This must be one of the strangest places I've been to. I still really do not know what to think.
Well, I came to try the donuts since the place is called Jellie D's. I really didn't want to be that adventurous and actually try the bubble tea... I didn't have any cash on me and had to use a credit card, I needed to spend $10 or more. So I got 1.5 dozen donuts (in the end, that would be 1.5 dozen donuts too much!) We just got a mix of everything. The donuts looked good; but in reality, they're not really that good. I mean they weren't terrible because they tasted fine, but the yeast donuts were quite heavy and dense. There was nothing fluffy about these donuts. Krispy Kreme, they're not. I often consider Tim Horton's donuts as being a bit heavy. Well, these ones make Tim's seem light. I think the next time I see pretty signage, I should just pass on by...
- The lady helping us was very friendly

- I like the name Jellie D's
- A donut shop that serves fish n chips and bubble tea
- Donuts are quite dense
- Ice cream didn't look that appealing
