Hillside Coffee & Donut Company
Hillside Coffee & Donut Co., one of three restaurants located inside the TI:ME building of Montecillo on North Mesa street, is quickly becoming the place for fresh donuts and fabulous coffee in El Paso. Their Taste of El Paso offerings will include two of their most popular donuts, the Choco Abuelita and the Citrus Glazed.
The Choco Abuelita, made fresh each morning with abuelita chocolate and cinnamon-sugar topping, is light and fluffy. Any fan of Mexican chocolate will appreciate the sweet/bitter balance of this donut's topping.
Their second dish is a light, fluffy donut with a delicate citrus glaze. The glaze is perfectly thick with just a hint of citrus flavor. The dough, which is made in-house every day, has just a bit of potato in it, giving it the structure needed to hold form, yet allowing it to be delicate enough to tear apart easily. This classic donut is a staple at Hillside, and for good reason. It's the perfect accompaniment to any cup of coffee.
Also offered at Hillside, and perhaps their most popular, is the piping-hot, fresh out of the oven sticky bun. Covered in maple glaze and pecans, this tear-away donut is actually several smaller balls of dough baked together to form a monkey bread-like treat.
Hillside Coffee and Donut Company is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 6 a.m. to midnight on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
