A new bakery in Centennial brings light and fluffy brioche doughnuts and cookies that look more like muffin tops. Blooming Buns Bakehouse takes over the former Retro Bakery space on North Durango Drive and Farm Road.
The star of the show here is the brionuts, a hybrid of a doughnut with a brioche base. Flavors include yema caramel honeycomb, berry bliss cheesecake, chocolate velvet mousse, creme brûlée, ube coconut cream, and the plain sugar. The over-the-top flavors come filled, or more like stuffed, with a light cream and decorated with a strawberry, wedge of honeycomb, or Oreo cookie, depending on the flavor.
The cookie buns, a massive mound of dough, come in classic chocolate chip, walnut chocolate chip, triple dark chocolate, or ube roasted almonds.
The bakery also offers ube ensaimadas, beignets, dark fudge crinkle cookies, salted duck eggs, and more. A short list of coffee options includes hot drip, New Orleans-style cold brew, Vietnamese-style cold brew, and iced dulce de leche honeycomb.
Customers can head online to order in advance.
