    A bunch of people just left the parking lot at 8:10 a.m. empty handed and disappointed — so much for buying a bunch of donuts for the office today. Not a peep from those in the truck.

      WSP – what do you mean – they are sold out? or not open? or?

    Athena’s is located at 16th Ave SW and Holden, not 12th. I hope they have a GREAT opening! So glad they’re in MY neighborhood!

      thanks, I know that, finger slip, fixing.

  • Peter May 8, 2012 (8:59 am)

    Please find out if Athena’s will have a shawarma in the kitchen.

    not open at all. Would be interested to hear from others what their experience was

    I got to the donut truck at 8:10 – They opened shortly after that. The ordering was VERY slow, but the Donuts were AMAZING. I got the Babe’s Blue Ox – Worth the wait… definitely… First day, he needs to find his groove!!!.. :) and possibly a helper… ;)

    The donut truck was super slow today, I waited in line for 20 minutes just to get 2. He’s got a lot of kinks to work out. The POG was really good though.

    Just got back from the donut truck…was slow for sure, the guy seemed a bit overwhelmed and short on patience. The Malasada was good…but was told they didn’t have any Lucky Devils, the signature item…not because they ran out but rather they couldn’t make them due to some ingredient issue. Seemed odd. Signage was also poor. Not the best first impression for me.

    Apologies all around for those of you that got a bad taste in your mouth. Actually our Luck ran out on Monday with some technical difficulties, opening day…eek. And we know that some of you felt the brunt of that. We are, as some of you have said working out the kinks and promise that we are learning from our mistakes. Helpers are on the way! We are finding our groove! first day jitters:) please be kind and patient…all the best

Sorry, comment time is over.
