Du’s Donuts and Coffee is opening up to much fanfare. We are proud to offer our superb, sustainably sourced coffee for this soon-to-be Williamsburg staple. According to Metro,
“At Du’s, Dufresne and head baker Colin Kull, formerly of the West Village’s classic French bistro Tartine, are sticking to one style of doughnut — “I prefer cake to yeast,” Dufresne says simply — served in 10 flavors: Mexican Hot Chocolate, Creamsicle, Grapefruit Chamomile, Pistachio Pink Lemonade, Banana Graham, Malted Coffee, Pomegranate Tahini, Peanut Butter Yuzu and two that will be served hot: Cinnamon Apple and Strawberries and Cream.
If that sounds a bit too old school for you, remember that Dufresne’s brand of molecular gastronomy wasn’t for show, but making his food taste like the best version of itself. “The common thread running through wd~50, Alder and Du’s is creativity,” he explains. “Our approach and methodology is perfectly suited to the process of making doughnuts.”
For now, there’s caffeine by Brooklyn Roasting Company, with plans to eventually serve alcohol. The menu may also expand from doughnuts to additional breakfast offerings — Dufresne is taking suggestions. “We don’t know exactly when or how the breakfast menu will go,” he says, “but we will let our customers help us decide.”
