Paulette’s Original Donuts and Chicken, the snack bar–bakery hybrid on Queen East, is closing this week to make way for a second outpost of midtown café Delica Kitchen, which is run by the same owner. Paulette’s earned raves when it opened last summer, both for its retro aesthetic and hedonistic menu of crispy fried fowl, chicken skin–topped mac ’n cheese and pastel doughnuts in flavours like Blueberry Balsamic and Rootbeer Float. Paulette’s doughnuts will continue to be sold online and at both Delica locations. Fans of the shop’s savoury lineup, however, are out of luck. [The Grid]
