Love the doughnuts. I'm worried I might be addicted. There's this lime-flavoured one with chunky salt on the surface, an explosion of flavour. The dark chocolate glaze, also a knockout. Caramel with toasted almonds, vanilla glazed, coconut, I would order every one of these again. Ten bucks for a six-pack, I pay it and don't even blink.

I got them at the end of the day Saturday, still a good selection available, and quantities. Nice, old-time doughy, non-greasy, dense beauties. Very friendly, helpful staff, too.

Will go back, probably very soon.

I love the concept behind Susie Q Doughnuts. A simple traditional pastry treated with creative flavours.

Purchase in the morning and brought back home to enjoy, still warm when I dug in. I tried Salted Caramel, Maple Bacon, Blueberry, Mayan Spicy Chocolate, Toasted Coconut.

By name, these flavours are rich and decadent but I found that the drizzle was thin and diluted on the donut, alittle soggy, even a small puddle underneath. I would have liked a thicker glaze, not sweeter, just something that adhered better. As I typically don't like overly sweet treats, the sweetness factor of was very much to my liking.

The doughnut itself was good, but I wouldn't call it a doughnut. It's rather dense, and a little dry, gently sweet with a hint of cinnamon. I feel it has the texture of a brioche (sweet bread).

Of course my exposure to doughuts are limited to Tim Hortons, Krispy Creme, Donut Factory (Singapore), Leonards Malasadas (Hawaii). So I can only base my option of what a doughnuts should taste like around these.

That being said, if I am in the mood for a sweet bread, I would try more of Susie Q's.

Salted Caramel - My favourite. Sweet and salty.
Maple Bacon - More salty, than sweet. A savoury tone if you're in the mood.
Blueberry - Unremarkable. Thicker glaze was needed instead of sitting in a pool of drizzle.
Mayan Spicy Chocolate - was my least favourite - grainy CocoCamino powderdy taste, mildly sweet, mildly spicy
Toasted Coconut - perfectly sweet, subtly coconut-y.

Ample parking, aim to go early for the freshest doughnuts... unless you like the dense texture, as they harden slightly when cooled.

$2 each
$10 for 1/2 dozen

From left to right: Salted caramel, toasted coconut and Kaffir lime, dirty chocolate.

I parked myself in the SuzyQ lot just before they opened, just to make sure I could get these bad boys as fresh as possible.

And, man, did they not disappoint.

Fantastic, yielding yeasty texture, and toppings that were flavourful without being overwhelming.

It's a good thing that they sell them by the half-dozen. If we bought twelve we would have eaten twelve, no doubt about it.

I have had donuts from here on three occasions. Overall I would say that it's best that you go early so you can get the selection you want as well as the freshness you desire. Considering they are designed to be a splurge and therefore are calorically devastating.. you should both get and consume them at their peak or not at all.

This new store is doing a brisk business! Friendly people and a quality product make this a place to return to again and again.

Also, the new store is really cute. I like what they have done with the place. Simple, laid back, inviting. My favourite version of that spot so far (I've been going since before Hintonburger was there).

Went to the new Suzy Q this morning. I bought a 1/2 dozen assorted, which were $10. They were good and very, very fresh. They didn't have any sugar ones, which is what I wanted, so I asked and the person working said it would take 30 seconds. Off he went and 30 seconds later brought me a hot, fresh, sugar donut. I really enjoyed it. $2 per donut is expensive, but these are bigger than Tim's and when fresh and hot, really good. Plus, at $2, I'll just eat one, instead of two :)

I did realize I am a tradionalist with my donuts. The fancy icing, the fancy toppings, those don't appeal to me. Simple, well made donuts with just a coating of sugar is my preference. I doubt I'll be tempted to buy an assortment again, but will go back for the traditional offerings.

My boyfriend brought me home one of their plain donuts a few nights ago, and I thought it was good. Nothing special, but good. I was pumped to try some of the more adventurous flavours until I learned the price. $2 a donut? Sheesh... I'd like to try the salted caramel donut next time I'm in the neighborhood, but I won't be going out of my way to do so.

Suzy Q now has a storefront in Hintonburg (at the lot of the old Hintonburger). My girlfriend and I stumbled upon their opening Sunday and bought a box of delicious donuts (see picture). Brought the box home and sat down with the roomies for a taste test and everyone agreed they were delicious, specifically the maple bacon. At $2 a donut ($10 a half dozen) I wouldn't consider then a steal, but they are miles above the generic fare sold at Timmys.

Waddled over this morning after brunch at the Hintonburg Public House. Got a half dozen: 3 salted caramel, 1 sour cherry and cornmeal with buttermilk glaze, 1 sugar munkki, and 1 maple bacon. Have only tried the salted caramel one and it was perfect. Moist and with a great texture, not too airy or dense and with a dark caramel glaze with some salt on top. Good sized doughnuts too. It was pretty busy around noon.

Oh wow. I had a dinner party last night and 2 guests arrived with a couple of boxes of assorted donuts from Suzy Q. Incredible! We had to cut them into quarters so everyone could have a taste of everything. This is going to be a very weak spot for me. Tim Horton's ruined the donut, and Suzy Q brought them back!

I love the Salted Caramel doughnuts here. The Toasted Coconut are great too. Also pictured here are the Double Chocolate and the Blue Vanilla with Froot Loops. My daughter was loopy about the blue one.

The Maple Bacon is good as well, but I find the chewy chunks of bacon are more gimmick than gourmet. For salty-sweet I prefer the Salted Caramel. Either way, there is a doughnut for every taste here. Just awesome!
