Sleep early tonight and wake up early tomorrow. That way you can visit Dough and get a Cafe Au Lait ($2.50), fresh from the fryer and cooled just enough to apply that layer of creamy coffee icing. There's also a smattering of crunchy walnut and cake crumbles, a fun textural contrast to the yeasty doughnut. These doughnuts are huge, but they're also light, so there's no reason you can't put down two. Make the almond-topped Dulce de Leche doughnut your second.
