When you do find it (located next to Rebellious Tomato), it’s worth it to bring home a dozen. These cake donuts come in a variety of flavoured icing and some with sprinkles. A hidden gem for sure, just read what one blogger had to say: “After weeks of half-hearted efforts to sample the goods from Harmony Donut Shop, I finally managed to succeed. Was I ever surprised when halfway through my hike up Lonsdale I saw the 'open' sign turned on in this little shop. There is an absence of any signage out front (which makes it difficult to find if you don't know where it is ~ you just have to trust the address and see if the 'open' sign is on), and peering through the windows reveals a shop that does an excellent job of appearing to be out of business. My wife and I debated this very point for several weeks after both driving and walking by a few times over a period of two or so months. I am pleased to report however, that they are indeed still open, and whoa boy, does she ever make a good doughnut.” 2945 Lonsdale Ave Phone: 604.987.0525 Team Clarke Favourite: Raspberry Donut Starbucks Coffee One of the newest Starbucks Coffee Shops on the North Shore, this one is always busy.
