Salted Caramel Filled Doughnut @ The Art House Café, Port Kembla
I must admit, I’ve been to better places than Port Kembla.
I was there on a chilly Saturday morning. First time in my life I had been to Port Kembla. I was just about the only human on the main shopping road – Wentworth Street.
There are some cafés and pubs, an artist’s hub and just a few other odds and ends along the main road. Some shops look permanently closed.
I checked every café for doughnuts in Port Kembla. Here’s the list:
Tonitto Continental Cakes – nice looking cakes, but no doughnuts.
Mac’s Pies – not open.
The Foundery – no doughnuts.
Enigma Café – no doughnuts.
The Art House Café – doughnuts – see below.
Café One (off Wentworth St) – not open.
Café 10 (around the corner from Wentworth St) – not open.
Café One and Café 10?? It’s nice that they number their cafes, but where are the eight cafés in-between?
One good thing about the main street of Port Kembla is that there is a big mural on one wall. I wonder what the story behind it is.
Also, there are a few mosaics on the footpath. I love the art of mosaics, so I was impressed.
The Art House Café is set amid a small artist’s hub on Wentworth Street.
There was one lonely doughnut left at the Art House Café, so I grabbed it… not literally. It was a Salted Caramel Filled Doughnut.
Clearly, they didn’t bake it there. It was probably a commercially made doughnut that they get with their other sweets.
The one thing that struck me about it was that is was sweet. Sickly sweet. The more I had of it, the less I could tolerate. I ended up throwing some of it away – that’s how sweet it was – it’s rare for me to throw away a doughnut.
Had I known, I would have got something from Tonitto instead.
