Home of the famous PNE mini doughnuts.
Went here a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it was a rainy day for enjoying Playland, but being the amusement park loving family that we are - this didn't deter us.
I love those silly little donuts that one can get. It's a bag fill of wonderful bad-for-you sweetness that is warm and yummy.
I approached the shop and ordered a two bags of donuts and two coffees. I saw the girl grab a bag from under the heat lamp. I asked when they were made. She said that they were made "a few minutes ago." The thing with little donuts is that they are only good when they are fresh. I don't really believe that they were made "only a few minutes ago." However, they still felt warm and were to be gobbled up by my family within minutes so nevermind.
I took the two coffees which she poured and headed under cover of the midway to get out of the rain.
The coffee was barely lukewarm. She certainly did brew this stuff "a few minutes ago..."
I took it back and politely, but clearly asked for replacements. Crikes, it was a cold, rainy day. Hot coffee was wanted, not lukewarm swill.
Happily, she took it back, admitted that she was pouring from an almost empty urn and offered to give me fresh, but it would take 10 minutes. I came back approximately ten minutes later and indeed she gave me two fresh cups of hot, good coffee. Only now my donuts were cold. Argghhh!!
Playland's concessions should be thrilled that there are visitors on a day like that. At least serve us amusement park diehards hot coffee and donuts - yeesh!!
