WESTBOROUGH – In an age of ever-shrinking donuts and pastries, Westborough’s Honey Dew Donuts stands out from the crowd.
Almost everything Honey Dew Donuts offers – the donuts, pastries, sandwiches, hash browns, bagels and everything in between – is made fresh and in the store. The quick-service spot’s staff works throughout the night baking, assembling, displaying and freshly preparing food; everything has to be ready when the store opens at 5 a.m.
“Every pastry is made here – baked in house. The quality is different from our competitors; our products are far bigger; the quality when you taste it is different. The glazing, the frosting – everything we do is done here, and it makes an incredible difference with the freshness and quality of our food,” said Mirlind Hoxhaj, who has owned and operated the Westborough franchise since March.
The work isn’t easy – Hoxhaj described being tempted by the smell of buttery croissants – but it’s worth it in the end.
With 200-plus items on the menu, Honey Dew Donuts has something for everyone to love. Though named after the business’s outstanding donuts, the menu also features muffins, savory sandwiches, myriad pastries, breakfast staples, lunch items and frozen drinks. The company’s fresh-brewed coffee frequently garners praise.
Honey Dew Donuts also has numerous seasonal specials, including apple-cider-based drinks, and pumpkin-spice-flavored drinks and pastries. The company offers eggnog (and eggnog lattes), which are perfect for the holiday season.
“When people try our products, they love them,” said Hoxhaj.
Westborough’s Honey Dew Donuts also focuses on convenience. The business’s location beside Route 9 and Route 495 gives people the opportunity to start (or end) their commute with delicious food and drink. Honey Dew Donuts’s drive-through window makes breakfast accessible for those who don’t want to leave their vehicle. The company prides itself on friendly, fast service.
“I always look at three things: customer service, fresh food and cleanliness. These things are so important.” said Hoxhaj. “We try to be as fast and clean as possible, and we’re a very welcoming, friendly environment.
