Holtman’s, with locations in Loveland and Williamsburg, opened their latest outpost in Over-the-Rhine. Coincidentally, across the street from my gym, and I swear this morning I could smell sugar and fat as I did tricep dips.
It’s a good thing I crave savory and not sweet, or else I’d be in trouble.
After a soft opening on Friday night, The Better Half grabbed some donuts for us to try on Saturday morning. They are indeed cheaper by the dozen, so we tried a bite of several. A few standouts:
Maple Bacon Donut: Yeast donut, maple frosting, bacon. Yeah, it’s pretty tasty. Donuts are so sweet that the savory bacon really balances things out.
Pumpkin Spice donut: Yeast donut with glaze, which tastes a bit like pumpkin bread. Nice.
Glazed: The gold donut standard, and this one is a little heavier and has a creamy texture. Very nice.
I have a feeling they’ll be packed every morning for the next few weekends, but if you have a sweet tooth, this is your place.
