Introducing: Jelly Modern Doughnuts, a new gourmet doughnut shop on College Street
Name: Jelly Modern Doughnuts
Neighbourhood: Harbord Village
Contact Info: 376 College St., 416-962-2053, jellymodern-toronto.myshopify.com, @JellyModern
Owners: Rita and Rosanne Tripathy
Pastry chef: Grayson Shermon
The Food: Pastel-pretty doughnuts with glazes, fillings and toppings that are mostly made in-house. The menu changes daily, but flavours like maple bacon, s’mores, peanut butter cup and salted caramel are permanent fixtures. There’s also a rotating doughnut of the month; for June, the Hollywood Bollywood: a salted caramel doughnut topped with Indian-spiced caramel corn and deep-fried carrot curls.
The Place: An almost clinically white room with pops of fuschia. The glass countertop display case flaunts the day’s confections and a small seating area looks out onto College Street.
