Sweet Bliss at poqetDONUTS in Irvine

We dined as a guest of the venue

Dare I say it? As I have gotten older, I have slowly lost my desire to crave sweet treats – GASP! My taste buds have changed over the years where I have now found myself preferring salty over savory.


I’ve tried many of the new cutting edge donut shops around Orange County that have honestly left me underwhelmed. I just can’t grasp the concept of paying almost $5 for a donut when I would be completely content with a simple sugar donut. When I heard about another new donut shop opening in Irvine, I was curious to see if it would stand out among the rest in Orange County, so I brought my two kids in for an afternoon treat.


The hot new donut spot is called poqetDONUTS. It is a small little store located in a popular shopping center in the heart of Irvine. The moment that I stepped into the door, I was overwhelmed by the sweet smells that lingered in the air as I was about to embark on a delicious adventure with my kids.


The donuts were not like anything I have had before. They were sweet – but not too sweet. Just right. They were creative – but not too creative. Again, just right. They had a flavor that will satisfy everyone’s cravings with the creme brûlée being my ultimate favorite, leaving me still craving more of it to this day. My mouth is watering just thinking about the creamy goodness tucked inside of the fluffy pastry that was topped with a crispy sugar topping.


While I was in pure bliss with my creme brûlée donut, my daughter fell head over heels in love with the lemon meringue donut. It tasted just like she was eating a piece of a freshly made pie, and she couldn’t help but go back for seconds.


While poqetDONUTS has many creative donuts awaiting guests in their large glass cabinet, there is also the option of customizing your donut. My youngest son picked out a plain donut and was able to have them add the glaze and all the toppings he desired and allowed him to use his imagination to create the donut of his dreams.


poqetDONUTS changed the way that I have felt about unique donut shops. I wouldn’t hesitate to spend $5 for a donut at poqet and for the first time in a long time, I have found myself craving a sweet treat. When you’re looking for somewhere new to bring your kids for a delicious treat, I guarantee that poqetDONUTS will have you coming back for more.

poqetDONUTS is located at 17655 Harvard Avenue, Unit B, in Irvine (at Main).
