Doissant, Sweet Dozen
There are countless doughnut shops around Sacramento serving single-note confections like the ones your grandparents grabbed in their lunchrooms 50 years ago. Then there’s Sweet Dozen, a small shop serving the lofty “Doissant,” a cronut-like cross between a doughnut and a croissant. But what Sweet Dozen does differently is split their doissants—sugar, chocolate, crum and maple-bacon flavored—and fill them with delectable seasonal fillings (think raspberry lemon, strawberry custard or even s’mores). Hot tip: Their doughnut cart makes biweekly visits to the Midtown farmers market with a few special off-menu options. 5207 Madison Avenue, Suite E in Carmichael. www.sweetdozen.com.
