Mary Lou Donuts is a Lafayette staple in the donut business. They offer every donut imaginable from the bear claw to coconut crunch to cream horns. This donut shop has been a breakfast favorite of my father's ever since I was a kid and I am sure beyond. My dad is a salesman and travels the northern part of Indiana. He works in the Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana area every other Friday. He always makes a quick stop into Mary Lou Donuts to get his favorite donut; glazed yeast with white icing and nuts on top. A funny story comes to mind when I think of Mary Lou Donuts. A few years ago my parents were on a pretty strict diet. (It was probably right after New Year's!). Donuts were not on their list of items they could eat. (Although, I always say a person can eat anything as long as it is in moderation!). Well, my father lost his cell phone one Friday morning. Guess where he left it?? Mary Lou Donuts! A waitress called my mother and my poor dad was caught!! We always tease him about Mary Lou Donuts. He said he just can't stay away, but he tries to stop at eating just one donut! Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana, offers so many Indiana dining opportunities!
