On a wonderfully chilly Sunday morning, a runner set off to the east in search of breakfast. She passed by smells of bacon and welcomed the refreshing cool air in her face. She listened to the songs of today, and crossed empty streets of Indianapolis. She was stopped once at a stoplight, but when the cars were clear, she continued on her journey.
Ten minutes after the runner's departure, a young lady mounted her bicycle and began to pedal against the crisp morning air. She watched the sky change from a dark blue to a golden glow. Although chilly, the biker was well dressed and ready - she wore her comfy sweats and thick socks. Helmet on her head, she continued on her journey.
Five minutes after the biker's departure, a sleepy eyed Asian hopped into his car, turned on the ignition, and drove off towards the canal. He picked up his fellow sleepy eyed white friend, backpack ready with laptop and headphones for the day of studying ahead. Listening to the jams of obscure bands no one really knows, they continued on their journey.
Where were these four headed? What propelled these young professionals to get out of bed so early on a Sunday? Was it the stress of impending exams? Was it to get a good spot in the library? No. The answer is plain and simple - DONUTS.
But really - Cassie, James, Andrew, and I met up this morning at General American Donut Company, a fantastic donut shop in Fountain Square/Fletcher Place, for some breakfast. This little place is absolutely awesome with a slightly 70s vibe and wide open spaces for people to eat donuts, drink coffee, and chat with friends. Donuts that were eaten this morning included an apple fritter (Cassie), a Snickers donut (James), an apple fritter and cake donut (Andrew), and a straight up sprankle donut (me). Plenty of photos were snapped. Last night's alt-J concert and Game of Thrones were discussed. Most importantly, laughs and smiles were shared. These are the Sundays I like the most.
They're seriously some of the best donuts in the city. Check out General American Donut Company and support local business. Happy Sunday!
