Review criteria:

Most popular donut at the shop: Maple Bar

Signature shop donut: Bacon Maple Bar

Most popular US donut: Glazed

2nd most popular US donut: Boston crème

Donut Hole: Glazed Donut Holes

 

What I tried:

Maple Bar, Bacon Maple Bar, Glazed, Bostome Crème, Old Fashioned, Donut Holes

 

What to expect:

Henry’s has a great location in Monroe with their storefront facing the main road. They are open for lengthy hours, so don’t worry about getting there before they close! They also make their donuts more often than just in the morning so you can enjoy fresh donuts at any time of day. Their dough is to die for on the fresh donuts and the shop smells wonderful, like newly made donuts of course! They have a selection of all your favorite donuts, but nothing out of the ordinary more than the bacon maple bar (is this a classic yet?).

 

My favorite:

The hours! How grand that a donut shop stays open so late! My favorite donut so far is their donut hole.
