I have been waiting to make this post for almost a year now! The people behind The Salty Donut have no idea how happy they made me when I received an invite to their private soft grand opening today before their public grand opening tomorrow in Wynwood.
I thought I didn’t like donuts since I never enjoyed them but The Salty Donut made me realize it was because I’ve never had gourmet. Miami’s first artisanal donut shop made its first official appearance last year and is not only nationally recognized, but is on several lists of top donut shops.
