Hypnotic Donuts to Open January 29 in East Dallas

James St. Peter, once content to make a few dozen donuts whenever he felt like it and sell them out of The Pizza Guy Restaurant, is now putting the finishing touches on his own big time store. Hypnotic Donuts, known for its exotic donut concoctions such as a chocolate cake donut covered with frosting made with chocolate, caramel and peanut butter ( the signature “Hypnotic”) and a donut topped with pretzels, peanut butter Cap’n Crunch drizzled with caramel and chocolate, is going full tilt boogie starting January 29. Here is a review of St. Peter’s High in the Mountains creation by Daniel Walker.

The new location at 9007 Garland Road, has a full kitchen and a new menu which will include chicken biscuits, biscuits and jelly from local purveyor JJ&B, biscuits and gravy, oatmeal made to order with choice of toppings, Greek yogurt and fresh fruit parfaits, along with protein drinks, protein bars, and energy/recovery drinks.

“Hyppies,” as patrons are known as, will enjoy a casual in-store experience with seating at the donut and coffee bar, or lounging on the sofa and some old school chairs.  Outside will be cheap plastic chairs that face the street.  Hypnotic calls this seating style “Goodfellas Row” as it is inspired by the movie of the same name. Standard chairs and tables will be placed throughout the space as well. In following St. Peter’s Hyppie mantra, Hypnotic Donuts furnished the store using reclaimed furniture and décor from local vintage, resale, thrift and charity stores. To further utilize local talent, local artist Kristen Johnson painted a mural of well-known hippies throughout history giving customers the joy of sharing a Hypnotic experience with their favorite hippies.

    Ok, big question. Last week we are trashing Paula Dean ( whom I could care less about ) and today we are promoting hypnotic donuts. Just asking the difference is what?.

    I am super excited about Hypnotic Donuts. They are supposed to have random openings at night too! I’ve always said that there needs to be a donut shop that is open during the evening! AWESOME.!!!
