Julie Darling Donuts is somewhat famous in Chattanooga. They opened just over 2 years ago (before the cupcake craze reached Chattanooga) on the North Shore, and have made a name for themselves with their gourmet donuts & bite size after school snacks.
They have a huge (and beautiful) selection of cake, yeast, & filled doughnuts, along with the 'Little Darling' donut holes.
I stopped by recently to see what all the fuss was about, and promptly oogled over the counter trying to make a decision. I stopped at "Banana Pudding Filled Donut" and never looked back.
I wish I was a better writer and photographer so I could explain how good this donut was. It was wonderfully rich, so I took my time and sat outside at a picnic table to enjoy it. And I enjoyed every. last. bite. Yes, it was a lot of calories, but the Walnut Street Bridge & Coolidge Park are across the street, so you've got a perfect opportunity to walk it off and enjoy the day.
