The Doughnut Affair

Celebrating One Month Of Boozy Doughnuts & Quality Coffee

The Doughnut Affair

Have you ever dreamed of spending the afternoon with your bestie, sipping drinks and eating doughnuts after a day at the beach? Well, we certainly have, and thanks to the stunning new Doughnut Affair down in Mermaid Beach, you finally can!

Located down in Mermaid Beach in the same complex as Background Barista, The Doughnut Affair is the sweetest new eatery to join the flock, providing us Gold Coasters with boozy doughnuts and gourmet coffee from 7am, five days a week.

Officially throwing open their golden doors one month ago, as soon as you drive into the complex you'll be drawn straight to their gold and marble feature wall outside the front of the building, with their (very appropriate) slogan 'Regret Nothing' taking pride of place for all of your selfie moments. Continuing the gold and marble theme, the inside of the store is bright and airy, featuring a comfortable booth for you to hang out in, as well as an expansive marble bench to display all of the boozy goodies that they're about to tempt you with.

Primarily set up as a coffee and dessert bar, The Doughnut Affair offers no shortage of sweet treats to satisfy any sweet tooth, with a seriously drool-worthy menu that we think tests the boundaries of what truly defines a doughnut in all the best ways. Priding themselves on their creativity, you'll find no shortage of creative and delicious options, with flavours such as Strawberry Champagne, Bourbon-Glazed Bacon and Pina Colada all featuring as some of the favourites on the list. Personally, we highly recommend the Strawberry Champagne.

Not just limiting themselves to a seriously delicious range of boozy doughnuts (not that we're exactly limited here), The Doughnut Affair also makes sure to look after all of our gluten-free friends on the Gold Coast, dreaming up a stunning Salted Caramel treat complete with popcorn on top for a totally drool-worthy treat.

Currently in the process of dreaming up more gluten-free ideas, as well as kid-friendly options (including these new Kidzone Doughnut Bites), watch this space for more delicious menu items coming soon. With a new flavour released every week, we can't wait to try everything they have in store!

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
