Sometimes you need a doughnut

I am a nanny. I get boogers handed to me on a daily basis. I get coughs straight in my face. Getting colds should be in my job description.

So after spending nearly a week on the couch I wanted to get out and breathe some fresh air. It was like it was meant to be! The sun came out and was like “yo Ashley welcome back to real life” and I was like “yo sun it’s been a while”.

Adam and I walked all around downtown Portland and it was awesome. I figured since I had eaten nothing but packaged ramen for a week I could treat myself. I’d heard great things about Blue Star and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on their delicious doughnuts.


The space is gorgeous. It’s clean, bright, and you can’t help but sit and stay a while.


Adam got the bacon maple and I got the peanut butter and jelly.



And they even had puppy doughnuts!


Doughnuts are having a moment in Portland. I completely understand why. Blue Star doughnuts aren’t flashy or funky like the other big name doughnut store in town but they are melt in your mouth delicious; you can taste the freshness. Blue Star is definitely worth a visit.

  1. Oh my. Another reason why I need to travel to Portland! They look delicious. It’s nice to hear about something a little more sunny and simple than that one we always hear about. ; )

  2. yum, I do miss donuts, I haven’t tried making and gluten free ones 😦 my sister raves about Coco Donuts, you should check them out on your next donut outing.
