An Interview with North Fork Doughnut Company

NoFo Donut Co East End Taste

North Fork Doughnut Company, located steps away from Love Lane in Mattituck, make the freshest, fluffiest, handcrafted doughnuts on the North Fork, all with locally sourced ingredients. Close to celebrating their one year anniversary in June of this year, NoFoDoCo for short, they have quickly become a popular spot for adults and children alike for everything from freshly roasted coffee and a bag of doughnuts to hosting make-your-own doughnut parties on the premises. Classic, and rotating seasonal and holiday inspired doughnuts create a diverse menu that everyone will love.

I sat down with owners Jimmy Lyons and Kelly Briguccia to learn more about how NoFoDoCo was born and their secret for creating the tastiest doughnuts around. You bet we will be back fast!

How did the concept for the shop begin?

The shop began a few years back when we decided we wanted to take our love for doughnuts out of the home kitchen and into the public. We worked day and night to perfect what we were doing and nail down our concept. It still continues to grow and change every day but we are elated with the result so far.

What are your methods for creating the tastiest doughnut?

Our methods are simple and fun. We create what we think wed love. We see things throughout the day and gather ideas everywhere we go and then in the early hours of the morning we decide what to make by just saying our ideas out loud and tweaking until we are satisfied and salivating.
What are the popular flavors?
Our most popular flavors have to be the caramel coffee cake, and maple bacon. Although, the classics move very well also. I think our glaze doughnut is our best doughnut. If that one isn’t good then the rest will suck!

What are your favorite doughnuts?
Our favorite doughnut has to be the classic glazed. Theres nothing like it. Light fluffy little dough clouds with glossy glaze finish, yum!
What are some facts about the shop that future customers may not be aware of yet?
Every doughnut is made on premise every day fresh. never any day old doughnuts. We donate all our left over products to the local church and other local businesses.
