This North Dallas favorite has a cozy, all-by-itself location by White Rock Lake, with a couch for lazy noshing, and a mural featuring the likes of John Lennon and Bob Marley, whose smoke rings morph into the very things one craves after smoking (donuts).

Hand-crafted, small-batch donuts in flavors like Pineapple Rum Upside-Down Fritter, Bananas Foster Fritter, Rasberry Glazed, Blind Limoncello, and The Elvis Killer: peanut butter, bacon, banana, and honey.
