Warning: Munchers Cream Cheese Doughnuts are addictive and should be consumed with caution. To the many Lawrencians who already have fallen prey to their clutches, the Journal-World apologizes for the late warning. These palm-sized envelopes of golden pastry surround a soft, dreamy, cream cheese surprise, and a smear of glaze on top adds just enough sugar.
Ease of access to these doughnuts creates additional risk for relapse — Munchers is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Where to get it: Munchers Bakery, 925 S. Iowa St., Suite M.
What you’ll pay: $1.30 per doughnut (for a dozen, that’ll be $15.60), cash or check only.
Try it with: Coffee.
Also on the menu: Other generously sized doughnuts like strawberry knots, blueberry fritters, chocolate croissants and cinnamon rolls, cookies, custom-decorated cakes and, during daylight hours, retired patrons talking about current events.
