Not bad from their humble beginnings at the Tequesta Greenmarket:
Jason and Andrrea Flaherty of the Jupiter Cookie Company are spreading the good news: the company is expanding! Not only are they adding more flavors to their line, they’ve outgrown their borrowed kitchen and are moving to the ChefCorp production kitchen in Palm Beach Gardens. And you won’t have to wait for a greenmarket to taste their organic products. Starting this summer, Jupiter Cookie Company’s line of gourmet sweets will be sold in local organic markets. They’re busy now with weddings, graduations and just plain satisfying area sweet teeth, but until the cookies arrive in stores, you can now contact them on their new website: http://Jupitercookieco.com or on Facebook.
It’s been nonstop at the Jupiter Donut Factory, 141 Center Street, since their opening a few months ago. After you’ve tried any one of their donuts, it’s difficult to stay away from the likes of triple chocolate, red velvet chocolate iced, raspberry, strawberry or Bavarian cream-filled, classic glazed, bacon maple, Holland cream or any of the other dozen or so daily flavors. Donuts not your thing? Try the muffins, ranging from healthy bran to can’t-resist-must-finish chocolate-chocolate-chocolate chip and carrot cake with cream cheese icing. Other menu items include sausage gravy and biscuits, breakfast sandwiches, bagels, fruit smoothies and quiche.
Prices for the quality are more than fair: $0.79 for a single plain donut, $0.99 for filled, $1.29 for specialty pastries, $1.50 for muffins and $6.99 for a dozen donuts. Breakfast sandwiches, quiche, smoothies, and the biscuits and gravy are all under $4.00 an order. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate are available in two sizes, and are all under $2.25.
Service is quicker and smoother than in the beginning, thanks in part to the regulars who keep coming in; it helps when the staff know the customers well. It also helps to check out the Factory’s Facebook page, where the new flavors of the day are posted.
Jupiter Donut Factory, open seven days, 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call ahead if you need more than a dozen donuts, (561) 741-5290 or for any takeout orders.
