Dueling Donuts 

Side Dishes: Burlington and Waitsfield face the hole truth

Starting this week, Burlington's Dinky Donuts is delivering old-fashioned, handmade rounds to Burlington homes and offices. The sweets come in three flavors: honey-glazed, chocolate-frosted and maple caramel, and cost $13 a dozen. Or you can get 18 little ones for the same price. There's no storefront. Order 'em by calling 839-5099.

Starting Wednesday, the Big Picture Theater in Waitsfield will be serving up popcorn, movies and "Very Small" donuts. Owner Claudia Becker partnered with — and moved — Waitsfield's Very Small Donut Company in an effort to diversify her business. The little guys will be available an hour earlier than first reported. "We decided that 7 a.m. is a good time," explains Becker, "so people can pick up a cup of coffee and some donuts on their way to work." The BP's regular breakfast menu will also be available, along with other pastries such as cinnamon rolls and coffee cake. Coming soon: fresh-baked bread and sandwiches that were popular at the Very Small Donut Company's earlier incarnation.
