Shortstop is the answer for sweet pastries and coffee
Ever get a craving for sweet pastries and coffee? Shortstop is the answer to that niggling feeling in the morning on your way to work.

Working on the concept that less is more, Shortstop only serves high-quality donuts made fresh throughout the day. Pair your donut with coffee made with organic milk and beans from speciality roasters.

Upon entry, you will find the menu in the centre of the floor as a table with a glass top. Beneath the glass is the day's selection of donuts, each with a description underneath.

Shortstop specialises in 4 types of donuts. Raised which is similar to the donuts you are used to with a hole in the middle, but made with a touch of nutmeg. Filled donuts with fillings and glazes made with in-season ingredients. My personal favourite is Cake, moist on the inside and a little bit crisp on the outside. Then there is the Cruller, a glazed choux pastry base inspired by the French.

An indulgent way to start anyway is to spoil yourself with the likes of Banana and Chocolate Hazelnut, Peanut Butter and Jam or Earl Grey and Rose!
