Uncle Betty's Diner

On Tuesday John called in sick to work so we had a leisurely lazy day together and in the evening once we were sufficiently bored from staying inside all day we went for a walk to get some coffee.
The place John wanted to go was closed so I suggested a place not too far that I had been wanting to try out for a little while.
Uncle Betty's Diner just looks like a fun place to eat.
The staff are very friendly and the donut making machine inside makes for some unique decor.
We got coffees and couldn't resist ordering a donut ice cream sandwich.
It was as good as it sounds like it should be.
Uncle Betty's makes their own Dreesen's donuts (apparently quite famed in NYC) so we figured we had to try one.
John opted for the powdered donut with oreo ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce and cookie crumbs.
While it doesn't win the prize for craziest thing I've eaten regarding donuts (see the Krispy Kreme hamburger from the Ex a few summer's ago) it was probably the best thing I've had involving donuts.
If you get the chance check this place out.
The menu is full of classic diner food and I would like to go back and try some of their crazy poutines.
The website can be found here
Next on my donut list is THIS PLACE (actual website here).
