Turns out dreams really do come true. Specifically those of the round sugary variety and even more specifically if they involve Southport. Yep.
Form an orderly queue dessert lovers, because a delightful donut store opened up that way recently and their creations are Gods gift to all of us.
D Point Ten can be found on Stevens Street and, in keeping with the general donut vibe, is a little hole in the wall space pumping out the freshest of donuts we may have ever excitedly shoved into our greedy mouths. In all the best flavours no less.
Think Gaytime goodness, Ferrero Rocher, Passionfruit (LOVE), Oreo, Tim Tam, Salted Caramel, Strawberry with M & M’s, the list goes on.
Yes, all the very best flavours in the world have come together in sweet, circular desserts that will actually knock your socks off. Bye diet.
Owners Henry Kim and Dean Jeong met while working together a few years ago and dreamed a few donut dreams. They began wholesaling their goodies from a commercial kitchen not long after and when the Southport space became available, they went for it.
Lucky for us.
The pair are in store at 3am every morning whipping up their creations and that is a level of dedication we have never experienced.
D Point Ten are also serving up Social Brew coffee to keep things local, so you can pretend to go in for a morning brew and then treat yo’self to a donut or two.
In case you’re interested in fun facts, the shop got it’s name from starting out with 10 flavours, plus promising customers they’d only keep donuts for 10 hours to ensure freshness and of course, producing 10 out of 10 goods.
Happy, holey days friends.
