    John, you may need to change the name of your blog. If you consider Spudnuts a restaurant.
    I must admit, after that, I didn’t read the rest.

      “A restaurant (/ˈrɛstərənt/ or /ˈrɛstərɒnt/; French: [ʀɛs.to.ʁɑ̃] ( listen)) is a business establishment which prepares and serves food and drink to customers in return for money, either paid before the meal, after the meal, or with a running tab. Meals are generally served and eaten on premises, but many restaurants also offer take-out and food delivery services. Restaurants vary greatly in appearance and offerings, including a wide variety of the main chef’s cuisines and service models.”

      Get off your high horse Barry.

      This is The Restaurant Guy’s Food News Blog so we are safe, meaning that talking about Spudnuts is unlikely to create a paradox that rips open the fabric of the universe, ending life as we know it.

    Touché, Glen. And thanks again to John, whom I recently messaged with thanks for this site.

      I checked out the place in IV, it has some good sandwiches on bagels and croissants also so not just donuts. I think they will do well as the only donut place in IV I believe.
