My journey to find the best donuts on the South Shore continues and has brought to me some unlikely places. From the winding roads of Pembroke to the packed city streets of Brockton, good donuts can be found in any neighborhood.
If you don’t think of donuts when you think of Brockton, it’s time to think again. There are several local donut shops in Brockton, frying up real, homemade donuts that are made fresh daily. Supreme Coffee has two locations in Brockton and is worth a trip. One of my favorite things about Supreme Coffee is the 1950s diner atmosphere. Their name is displayed in huge neon letters outside and gray Formica tables and red vinyl chairs complete the retro feel.
Ambiance aside, I really came here to eat some killer donuts and they delivered. To make sure I was getting a true feel for their goods, I bought a half dozen to share with my family: chocolate honey dip, chocolate frosted chocolate honey dip, chocolate frosted glazed, chocolate cream filled, Boston cream filled, and sugar raised blueberry. We enjoyed them with a side of crispy bacon. The saltiness of the bacon enhanced the sweet.
Supreme Coffee’s frostings and fillings are the true icing on the cake. They’re rich, velvety, and laid on thick. I was happy to discover that the filling of the chocolate cream filled donut was actual chocolate buttercream frosting. Inside the Boston cream donut was vanilla pudding, an unexpected but welcome addition to the fluffy donut.
The blueberry donut was a true treat. It is my favorite donut but few donut shops make them. This one had a crisply fried exterior with a crumbling center that was dotted with blueberries.
If you need something more substantial for breakfast, you’ll find an assortment of croissants, coffee rolls, muffins, and breakfast sandwiches here. People looking for a quick trip will be pleased to find a drive thru, but you can also settle in and enjoy some free WiFi, too. Single donuts are a bargain for only $1, a half dozen for $4.75, and a dozen for $6.75.
Here at Supreme Coffee there’s no false advertising or fussiness. The coffee is supreme and served any way you like it. Just make sure you get a donut (or three) to dunk in it.
You can get your donut fix bright and early, seven days a week. Supreme Coffee is open Monday through Satuday 4:30am – 9:00pm and Sunday 4:30am – 8:00pm.
Supreme Coffee is located at 741 Crescent Street in Brockton, MA with other locations in New Bedford and Seekonk.
