About Five Daughters Bakery (Atlanta)
I’ve heard a lot about Five Daughters Bakery the last several months after the first Atlanta location opened a few months ago. I heard about it from friends. I heard about it from an entrepreneur I randomly reached out to after hearing him on a podcast — Brandon Harvey of Good Good Good. In fact, Brandon and I went back and forth about donut shops. He even mentioned how he and his wife ordered donuts as part of their wedding (I’m guessing in lieu of a cake — IDEA!).
To find Five Daughters Bakery in bustling Ponce City Market was tricky. Luckily, I’m not one who shies from asking for directions. In fact, I don’t let things slow me down to get to donuts. In this case, it was tucked away in a little hall off the main food hall. When I saw it, nothing too spectacular — simple, clean. But you can tell when you first see the donuts that something else is baking here. Didn’t take long for the woman behind the counter donning a “I am a daughter” shirt to give my friend and I (and a handful of other first-time patrons) a quick run-down of the options.
I’ll be honest, I don’t remember much of what she said because she pointed to the top two levels of donuts as their “hundred layer donuts”. You had me at “hundred layer donuts”. Everything else, sorry, I don’t remember at all.
I was eager to try a couple of the donuts, so didn’t wait too long to make my simple selections. They even had vegan and paleo options + some light pastries. I did get a couple extra donuts for others including a vegan (on my first go-round). However, let’s focus on the ones I actually had. 🙂
