Nickel Diner's Bacon Donut Makes the News

CBS2's 6pm newscast featured the Nickel's bacon donut as its "6:15 Showcase."

For a little neighborhood eatery, the Nickel Diner's got quite the run of press going. First Monica and Kristen made it to LA Times' Column One and now tonight pastry chef Sharlena Fong's bacon donut was the 6:15 spotlight on CBS2's evening news.

The maple-glazed bacon donut is certainly the item most likely to induce a double-take, but those who've eaten Fong's creations will tell you that the Nickel has plenty of worthwhile pastry and dessert options.

Right now the Nickel's taking orders for Thanksgiving pies, offering options for pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin pie, pecan pie and apple pie. Orders need to be in by Sunday.

Nickel Diner / 524 S. Main / Wed - Sun, 7:30am - 3:30pm / 213-623-8301
