Driving between Dunedin and Tarpon Springs I saw a donut shop I didn’t know existed. I had heard of Jupiter Donuts [32130 US Hwy 19 N, Palm Harbor, FL 34684] on the Atlantic Coast (and sadly didn’t get a shot at visiting there), but not the Gulf! I hate making U-turns, but you’re allowed to pretty much anywhere in Florida (crazy roads!) so I went for it. It’s rare that I discover an unplanned gem – I was excited. It was getting on into the afternoon and they were close to sold out. We scored a half dozen donuts and devoured them on the spot.
The funkiest variety available was the coco-mango – done so well. Super unique and excellent executed flavors. The chocolate frosted tasted of real cocoa, so good! I loved the quiet location and easy parking in the strip mall. Pressed for time? They even have a drive-thru.
