When my husband and I lived on the west side of town, Sesame Donuts was one of our favorite places to grab a midnight snack. The travel guides and Food Network will tell you to check out Voodoo Doughnuts when you come to Portland, but that place is overrated. Sesame may not have a wedding chapel but they do have fresh doughnuts, smoothies and hot coffee. They are also open 24 hours.
We picked up a dozen doughnuts to take home and also munched on some for lunch. Sebastian had a bit of trouble getting the stickier ones down but did fine with the flakier doughnuts, including the one covered in sesame seeds that I assumed would be difficult for him.
I think that his favorite part was the whole milk to wash it down. I am not sure how much cow’s milk he will get as he reaches one year old – I don’t plan to wean anytime soon – but he is definitely a fan.
Doughnuts are not something that we eat everyday, but it was fun to bring Sebastian to a place his dad and I enjoyed before he was born. Moments like that are awesome and a little bit surreal.
