A Minneapolis Institution
Indulging an unnatural craving for a glazed donut, I headed over to the out-of-the-way (for me) but revered Mel-O-Glaze bakery on Minnehaha Parkway and 28th Avenue S. What's up with the spray-painted, fake Christmas trees out front? My donut was good, but I think since I went in the late afternoon, it was past its peak freshness. Regardless, I love that this bakery is all by itself on a street corner surrounded by homes, apartment buildings and the lovely Parkway.
