Bakery buzz

Belle Kitchen owner Cheryl Davenport is abuzz about the online accolades her restaurant receives. Earlier this month,’s The Best Doughnut Shop in Every State list named Belle Kitchen home of Oklahoma’s best doughnuts.

Davenport, who used her experience as a science teacher to perfect her dough recipe, said she is “super jazzed” by the honor.

Belle Kitchen, 7509 N. May Ave., also recently opened a Deep Deuce location at 30 NE Second St.

Though it was doughnuts that landed the eatery on Buzzfeed, the shop is also known locally for experimental ice cream flavors and gourmet macarons.
