Donut - sunshine

Is it art? Who cares?

When it comes to public art – it is all really in the eye of the beholder. People like what they like and without any introduction to art in school – you get some pretty weird stuff.

Tucked in at the south end of the Art Gallery of Burlington is a donut shop with the name – Sunshine.

The Burlington Cream is not to be missed – but you have to be there early. At $4 bucks apiece that may seem a little extreme – d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!

While doing a photo feature on the current exhibit at the AGB we noticed Sunshine’s contribution to public art.

Sunshine Donut shop

Tucked in at the south end of the Art Gallery parking lot. Get there early they do sell out. No such things as a day old donut.

You know the product is as good as it gets when you notice fire trucks on the way back to the station stopping in for a bite to eat.

Sunshine Donut shop hours

No signs like this on Brant Street

When Sunshine first opened the hours were open until the production for the day had been sold.

They did a brisk business – the lemon cream was to die for.

First story on the Sunshine donut shop.
