If you want to be liked by all at the office, make a morning stop at Cajun Market Donut Company for a dozen reasons to be happy. While this Pinhook Road donut shop and coffee spot does serve light and fluffy hot glaze donuts, you’ll notice an assortment of cake donut options that are palate pleasers.

Creative cake donuts from Cajun Market Donut — red velvet with cream cheese is a must

Pick up a few red velvet, devil’s food and blueberry cake donuts for something different, or go for a classic that reminds IND Eats of a delicate spice cake. Go ahead, dunk it in a piping hot cup of Joe, if you dare. For the chocoholics, ask about the “death by chocolate” donut — it’s sinfully delicious.

Cajun Market Donut Company also makes a mean apple fritter and assorted kolaches — get there early if you want the best selection because they go fast. There’s also a special treat not on the menu for kids: loaded donut holes, anyone? This childhood bite-size favorite gets amped up with a drizzle of chocolate and rainbow sprinkles.
