We have had Blue Star doughnuts in Portland last year and were impressed with a couple of their offerings. They recently opened a location in Venice and after our lunch at Hanjip, we headed to Venice to load up on carbs!!
Their store is much smaller than the one we visited in Portland. They packaged our two doughnuts in a big box, I guess they either don’t carry smaller boxes or they ran out. At least your doughnuts travel better.

Mexican Hot Chocolate
This was my favorite when we visited Portland last year and thankfully it did not disappoint. Strong chocolate flavor with a nice chili kick. A very dense and satisfying doughnut.
Old Fashioned Buttermilk
My husband’s pick and he liked it enough. I found it a little greasy but it had a good flavor.
