The Home of the DOYO
What’s a DOYO? Ask Tiffany’s Bakery and you shall receive a “dough-yo” that is steamed, not fried, for a more flavorful and moist taste than a traditional fried cake donut. They’re also healthier for you than the alternative! Tiffany’s Bakery is not limited to DOYOs, and has cakes, cupcakes, and a variety of baked goods to satisfy your craving.
