A bit about NOLA

Started in the year 2014 by Robert R. Herkes Jr, NOLA Doughnuts brings forward the most appetizing doughnuts you may have ever had in your life. Each of their handcrafted sugary doughnuts goes through a complete 3-day process before reaching your plate. This includes a specific layering technique that comes directly from classical French pastry making – New Orleans style.

The end result of this 3-day long process brings you a scrumptious fare of complex flavors, crisp outer texture and a deep richness. In other words – the signature La’ssant Doughnuts!

Heating up the local doughnut wars

In words of, Rob, “ I can bet that the beignets that we serve could be a winning entry in the local doughnut wars, but I’d like to start small.”
