Mojo Donuts Restaurant Review

: Shelly and Shawn Neifeld, proprietors of this indie mom ‘n’ pop shop in suburban Pembroke Pines, fill their café’s bakery cases with roughly 22 daily varieties --- seven constant, 15 constantly changing, and always a mix of yeast and old-school cake donuts. Naturally they do bacon/maple donuts, plus a bacon/Nutella variation invented for DJs at a local rock radio station. But we like Mojo for its non-novelty aspects, like quality non-imitation ingredients: when was the last time you had a blueberry donut that tasted like blueberries? They also work with serious flavor profiles like lemon/pistachio and a raspberry-glazed donut with real bittersweet dark chocolate. And they produce the basics, like cinnamon and sugar cake donuts. There’s an indoor/outdoor café component, too, for those who want to pig-out on-premises over a variety of coffee drinks or exotic teas. Though Mojo officially stays open till 6 p.m., they really close when donuts run out --- some days as early as 2 p.m.
