A Hidden Donut Gem

By Gabrielle Enfield, August 28, 2020

In the city that is the home of heavyweights like nationally acclaimed Blue Star Donuts, much loved Pip’s Donuts, and the never to be outdone Coco Donuts, there seems to be little room for just a really good donut shop. Fortunately, out in the suburbs, there is still room for a little mom and pop donut shop where you can pick up a quick dozen.

Donut Palace has been making delicious pillows of frosted, fried dough for the last 5 years. They have the classics, as well as a constantly rotating list of house specials including donuts with exotic sounding fillings—try the guava, it’s divine. They are committed to using high quality, fresh, local ingredients and you can taste it in every bite. Every Saturday they have vegan options, so that everyone in your party can have a weekend treat. Tucked in a small strip mall just off the 185th exit, it is a little gem that you will go back to again and again—not just for the donuts, but also for the community.

They are currently doing curbside pickup. Give them a call to find out what they have available and to place your order.

Real estate can be a wild ride. It's important you find your wingwoman.

I understand the important decision of choosing an agent. It's a relationship for the long haul. My goal is to apply my myriad experiences, both personally and professionally, to help guide my client partners through a thoughtful, strategic, seamless and fun journey. Need an understanding of where to start, when it comes to getting ready to sell? I'll put my background in project management to work and let you know what needs to happen, complete with spreadsheets, if you're into it. Looking to purchase a vacation property and need it to generate rental income? I'll sharpen my pencil and make sure the numbers make sense. First-timer who needs a steady hand to help guide you through the real estate process? This Mama Bear's got you covered, and will be sure to point out what you need to look for. Moving to PDX and need a proxy to get to know Rose City? I'm a Pac NW native, and even with all its growth and change, this place still gives me butterflies. I grew up in Woodland, Washington, and am a proud resident of North Portland, where I'm raising my family. #boymom Before real estate, my career spans two decades of expertise I'm fortunate enough to apply every day. These experiences range from being a TV news anchor (visual storyteller) to helping develop some of the world's beloved brands (strategy and engagement). I was practically born with a tool belt on: my Dad is a retired custom home designer and builder, my uncle is an architect and my Grandpa was a REALTOR® and developer. I am an active listener, have a keen eye for "good bones",  and solving my clients' real estate needs in a creative and often unexpected way brings me joy. Plus, the lasting relationships formed are cherries on the sundae! Please give me a call - I'd love to see what it would be like to partner with you. For a look inside my everyday life, be sure to follow along on Instagram. High fives!
