Speedy Donuts, 116 Connecticut Ave Norwalk, CT
Speedy Donuts has been crafting handmade donuts and serving up breakfast since 1969, it is owned by Alexandra and John Diamantis and was first located in South Norwalk. In 1980, they moved to Route 1 across the street from the Volk Fire Station. Speedy’s is a small place, but they serve a BIG breakfast! So before we get to the awesome donuts, here’s what I had for breakfast…
Today I had two Scrambled Eggs, with Bacon, Home Fries and Whole Wheat Toast. It was EGG-tastic & BACON-errific! What’s cool about Speedy’s is if you sit at the counter, you can watch them cook your breakfast. The chef is named Cruz (just like Victor Cruz!), he has been working at Speedy’s for ten years and keeps his grill spotless!
Once we were done, it was time to try their awesome donuts. I asked Mrs. Alexandra Diamantis, “What is the most popular donut at Speedy’s?”
She said, “Our bestseller is the Glazed Donut… the next is the Old Fashioned… people also love the Jelly Donuts.”
I asked Cruz “What’s the most popular breakfast at Speedy’s?”
He told me, “People love the eggs and the pancakes. Lots of people order our bacon and egg sandwich too.”
I got to try the Glazed and the Apple Crumble donuts — which were both GREAT!
Speedy’s has a lot of regular customers, today I met Brian and Maria. Brian was a New York City Firefighter, and Maria is a very good baker, and owns La Dolce Vita Catering, she even studied at the French Culinary Institute. Brian told me that he LOVES Speedy’s pancakes!
