If you are looking to start your day off right in the Catskills, head to Twin Peaks Coffee and Donuts in Tannersville, [5950 Main St Tannersville, New York] your day might just be complete after breakfast. I fell in love at first sight, and that love was solidified at first bite. The staff is so laid back and friendly, there is locally themed art all over the walls and old school equipment about the space.
If it’s your first time here you may be overzealous like I was. I wanted breakfast, I wanted donuts, and I wanted coffee. Good thing I have a garbage disposable as a fiancé, it allows me to try so many things. We noticed a sign at the counter by the menu about donut sliders, and yes, we were curious.
If you feel like you haven’t had enough donuts in your morning yet, and you seriously haven’t, you must try some of their specialty donuts for after breakfast dessert. It’s okay, they’re small, get a few! Look at the board to see their current flavors, we decided on four little gems and happily split them.
Their artfully presented fresh little donuts are dense and soft with a crisp outside, great alone, but heavenly dipped in an array of flavors. My favorite was the salted caramel, but this is a no brainer for me. I love the sweet and salty combination, and this was a perfect balance. They had a samoa donut, which is my favorite girl scout flavor, and phenomenal in donut form, chock full of toasty coconut! A caramel apple was super tasty with firm fresh chunks of apple. And lastly we tried a margarita lime donut, which I would not normally choose; luckily Jeff wanted to try it because it was great! Tangy and sweet, just like a yummy margarita. So all of delectable morsels went down the hatch smoothly with great coffee. If you love their coffee, you can buy a bag of whole beans, and they can grind them up for you fresh. The morning couldn’t have had a better start. We were really tempted to just go home and sleep after such a meal, but the mountains were calling, and we had to work off those donuts!!
