 Brewnuts
6501 Detroit Ave., 216-600-9579
Ever since opening this past September, the 1,200-square-foot corner space at the bustling intersection of West 65th and Detroit has been mobbed by adoring and supportive fans who gobble up doughnuts like the maple-bacon bourbon ale, coffee porter with toffee, and the classic glazed made with Great Lakes Dortmunder. On a busy day, the shop flies through literally thousands of doughnuts, each and every one of them hand rolled, hand cut, fried and glazed by a human.
