We generally avoid donuts, pastries, pies, cakes, ice cream and we limit our intake of carbs…such as bread, rice, potatoes, pasta, etc.
But from time to time, we do make an exception!
This is the new Master Donuts shop at 507 East Broadway Street, (US Hwy. 11), in Lenoir City Tennessee. It just opened on July 24th… Our visit was in early August.
I did a bit of research on the Internet and apparently there are a few other Master Donut locations scattered around. While I couldn’t find a company or franchise website, I did find Master Donut locations in Clinton and LaFollette Tennessee as well as another in London Kentucky. I also noted a newspaper article announcing that Master Donut was opening in Harriman Tennessee.
Master Donuts’ location in Lenoir City was previously occupied by a Mexican bakery. The interior of the shop is plain and simple…a minimal investment…which will make it easier to realize an operating profit. There are a few tables and chairs should customers decide to enjoy their purchases on site.
This is a close up of one of the two bakery display counters at Master Donut. There are lots of great looking choices!
In addition to donuts, muffins and coffee, Master Bakery offers breakfast bagels, biscuits and croissants as well as a pig in blanket.
This is the menu for Master Donut. We thought that the pricing was quite reasonable and we welcomed the opportunity to buy breakfast or lunch instead of just the delicious sweet stuff.
There are a couple of shaded picnic tables at one side of Master Donut…and I’m sure that they fill up early in the morning and at lunch time.
Yes! You’re right… We did lose it. It’s been a long, long time since we have had a donut! So we loaded up…with 2 Sausage, Egg and Cheese Croissants, a glazed donut, a couple of cake donuts, a custard filled donut, a bear claw and an apple fritter.
Move over Dunkin’ Donuts! Master Donuts are far superior to your products and the breakfast croissants kick butt over any of the fast food versions…
Master Donut is open Monday through Saturday from 5 AM to 5 PM and on Sunday from 5 AM to 1 PM. Phone: 865-816-6058.
