Blue Star donuts. The last time I visited Portland, everyone was telling me that Blue Star donuts was the place to go. So when I was back in town last week, I knew that I needed to make this a top priority. My mom and I went Saturday morning around 9:30, and there was already a line out the door. The shop itself is very small, and there aren't any tables to eat there. However, there are a couple bar tops if you really just can wait to eat. While I was waiting in line, I heard people discussing Blue Star vs. Voodoo Donuts (the other famous donut shop in Portland). Apparently most locals find that Voodoo donuts taste like grocery store donuts and aren't worth the wait. I've had Voodoo before and remember them being pretty good, but after having Blue Star I'd say that it's a toss-up. Voodoo definitely has more adventurous flavors (think maple-bacon or cereal on top), but Blue Star donuts taste very gourmet. The flavors I chose were rather simple: a glaze and a filled one with chocolate frosting and vanilla creme. The chocolate one was my favorite, but my mom had the lemon-poppyseed and raved about it. If you're in Portland and like donuts, Blue Star is a must.
