Donut bar on the Anthem?

Recommended Posts

Does the Anthem still do a donut bar in the Windjammer on some nights? Do they announce it? I didn’t see it mentioned in the cruise compass. For anyone that’s experienced it, how were the donuts? Were they any good?

 

I originally saw it mentioned in the review below.

Yes, they still had it one night.  Also, had a cupcake bar one night.  It was not pre-announced, just ran across it when we went walking thru WJ.  They are ok.  All the same base with different icing.  Enjoy

They are average at best, nothing to get excited about.

I'm sure you are right,  but Donuts were meant to be tried.  I mean, I've eaten Hostess minis bought at a gas station.

I found the donuts to be dry as dust. They were more like day old donuts. The best donuts and pastry were at breakfast in the MDR. I also enjoyed the strawberry scones at cafe 270. That was my 4:00 go to with a frozen blended coffee.

To each his own. There are just too many better options.

These are the ones that you watch them make fresh, right in front of your eyes.

How were they? Worth looking out for?

They now have the scones with different toppings you can add at 3 - 4 PM in the WJ.

Yes!  Always liked the scones but don't recall having toppings.

There is a small station that they set up in the WJ at 3 pm.  (the WJ used to close at 3).

There are small sandwiches, fruit, cookies, and scones with whipped cream, strawberries, chocolate sometimes other berries to add.  I have also seen cherries jubilee and ice cream, but that was rare.

Last time I had the fresh doughnuts, they were very nice.  It has been a while, and I have NO IDEA if they even still do this.  So don't blame me if you go to the WJ and can't find them.  😃

I remember donuts in the morning on the Boardwalk on Allure (maybe Oasis).  They were good.  I think one night they had warm mini cinnamon sugar donuts as a dessert, but I don't remember if it was MD or somewhere else.
