Donut House, Chennai


This week I decided to venture a little out of the comfort zone. We trekked all the way to Egmore to visit the recently opened Donut House. Bright yellow dominates the decor and gives a warm, chirpy feel to the whole place. The live kitchen is a nice touch. 

Quickly we got down to business and ordered a bunch of donuts. The donuts have an obvious chocolate bias. The Coffee Roasted Almonds was a hit. The donut was sophisticated with a hint of coffee, a sprinkling of almonds and a nice dose of dark chocolate.

The Alien is all about the chocolate. Liberal layers of dark chocolate topped with white chocolate dusting. I took a gluttonous bite and the chocolate stuffing came oozing out. Yumm! That said, I do wish the dark chocolate had been richer. Would have made it perfect.

The Oreo was a bit of a letdown. It was good but it didn't knock my socks off, the way I expected it to.

My favourite donut was the Italian Spices. This savoury donut was incredibly good. Lots of cheese topped with some not-too-spicy spices and herbs complemented the inherently sweet dough perfectly. I preferred this to all the chocolate donuts and given my incorrigible sweet tooth, that's saying something. I highly recommend that you try this.

The donuts were all warm and soft. The dough was not oversweet and tasted good. Thankfully, it wasn't all about the toppings. 

They also serve sandwiches, coffee and some drinks (of the non-alcoholic variety).


They also have a kiosk at EA. Deciding to see if this one was as good, I hopped over to the stall later that day. The Peanut Dark Chocolate had a lovely flavour and strong peanut butter overtones.
However, the variety at the EA kiosk is limited and the donuts not as fresh. If you can manage the time, I recommend that you hop across to the main branch.


Donut House brings some much needed variety to the quick eats scene in Chennai. I see myself visiting this place soon and am fervently hoping that they produce some delicious Bavarian custard filled donuts.

Donut House delivers to select localities. 

Thanks to Nathu for coming all the way on a boiling Saturday afternoon.
