Review: College Eats: Central Donut

Story and photos by Keri Gabriele, Photographer

Nestled in a little shopping strip a couple blocks south of the Northridge Campus, Central Donut bakery provides a friendly, reasonably priced place to get a quick bite on the way to class.

Central’s old-fashioned glazed donuts are crispy on the outside and cake-like on the inside. They apply just the right amount of glaze, so it’s not a sugar bomb in your mouth. The result is a donut that’s both delicious and filling.

While donuts and coffee are the perfect pair, two refrigerated cases provide a variety of beverage options.

If you’re looking for savory items, Central Donut also has an assortment of breakfast sandwiches, muffins and breakfast tacos. But don’t get too excited about the breakfast tacos. The bakery makes them ahead of time, so you can’t combine ingredients, and they’ll need to be heated up.

The tacos are generously stuffed with fillings like potato, egg and cheese, which spill out of the tortilla. The final product was satisfying but void of favor.

The sausage and cheese kolache consisted of a warm, buttery, sweet and fluffy roll. But the cheese-filled sausage inside seemed generic. Kolaches come

in a choice of small or lunch-sized, but there are no vegetarian options or fruit on the menu.

The service is quick. It only takes about two minutes to get through a five- person line. A warning though, after 8:30 a.m. on a Friday, the selection may start to get low.

Central Donut is definitely a to-go oriented bakery. There are only three booths, one table for two and hardly any decor. But everything is pretty cheap.

An old-fashioned donut, sausage and cheese kolache, breakfast taco and coffee can all be purchased (together) for less than $5. The bakery accepts credit cards, but be prepared to pay an extra 50 cents on purchases less than $4.

The bakery is located on the corner of Braker Lane and Metric Boulevard andisopenfrom5a.m.to1p.m.on weekdays and from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. on weekends. If you’re around the Northridge Campus, it’s worth a visit.

  1. I was given a professional and successful voice before the Department of

    They ‘re helping clients across the state of California, and
    you don’t need your attorney to be local.
    My lawyer has understood my situation and is experienced in administrative law.

    Throughout the years government offices have consistently developed
    in number and significance in the United States.
    They influence a wide assortment of monetary capacities and social issues, for example, broadcast communications, the
    budgetary market, and racial segregation. Instances of these
    offices incorporate the Department of Labor (DOL), the Federal
    Communications Commission (FCC), and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

    Managerial law administers such government offices as the U.S.
    Division of Labor, the Federal Communications Commission, and
    the Securities Exchange Commission, and state offices, for example,
    laborers’ pay sheets.
    Laborers’ remuneration sheets are instances of state-level government bodies that can sanction approaches
    and techniques under the bearing of the regulatory laws that structure
    them. Such sheets have the ability to decide if harmed laborers are qualified for get pay identified with
    wounds continued regarding their occupations. The power laid out by regulatory
    law subtleties the limitations inside which the sheets must work, how each case must be taken care of, and ways
    questions are to be settled.
