Firecakes Donuts Pop Up in the Most Stylish Place: Lou & Grey on Southport
award winning artisan donuts are making their scrumptious presence
known in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood, as a pop-up donut counter
located inside Lou & Grey, the contemporary women's apparel store at
3442 N. Southport Avenue (773-935-5160). There are no donut shops on
this area of Southport Avenue, so the locals are thrilled to have a
place to grab a great cup of coffee and a
has been a fun opportunity for us," said Firecakes owner Jonathan Fox.
"Lou & Grey actually contacted us awhile back and asked if we could
do a donut pop-up inside the store. Their customers were so pleased with
our donuts and coffee that the store invited us to be onsite every day
for two months as an ongoing attraction. We're so pleased to be
associated with such a cool business. They have been great!"
set up a moveable installation in the rear of the store, complete with a
donut counter and display cases. Nine flavors are offered. Three raised
donuts on hand are the Honey Glazed, the Vanilla Iced, and the Valrhona
Chocolate Iced. There are three buttermilk doughnuts: Old Fashioned
Buttermilk, Sicilian Pistachio Old Fashioned, and Valrhona Chocolate
Iced Old Fashioned. Cake doughnut lovers can
enjoy the Red Velvet, Triple Valrhona Chocolate Cake and Vanilla with
Sprinkles. Firecakes also is experimenting with some gluten-free
Firecakes serves the acclaimed La Colombe coffee, which is available as espresso, drip and cold draft latte.
Donuts are available inside the Lou & Grey store 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.,
Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. No cash is
accepted; customers must pay with a credit or debit card.
"Billy" Donut Truck also is making early weekday morning stops on North
Southport, but moves on to other locations before the Lou & Grey
Donuts are on a roll right now," said Fox. "We will continue to do
these types of surprise events as opportunities present themselves.
We're looking at some potential new permanent locations as well."
