Firecakes Donuts Pop Up in the Most Stylish Place: Lou & Grey on Southport (Chicago,IL)

Firecakes Donuts Pop Up in the Most Stylish Place:
Lou & Grey on Southport
Firecakes LG door 400 px.jpgFirecakes' 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 fabulous donut.

"This 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!"

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 options.

Firecakes serves the acclaimed La Colombe coffee, which is available as espresso, drip and cold draft latte.

Firecakes 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.

Firecakes' "Billy" Donut Truck also is making early weekday morning stops on North Southport, but moves on to other locations before the Lou & Grey store opens.

"Firecakes 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."
