Glory Hole Doughnuts, who knew there was this munchie goodness in Toronto with unusual names; fried chicken & waffles, S’mores and maple bacon to name a few. They all started with humble beginnings as a dollop of dough fried in vegetable oil and sprinkled with white sugar and now exist as a hidden gem that few people know about in Toronto Ontario.
I think Toronto must be the doughnut capital of the world, with new shops springing up every month. It is no longer coffee and donuts, as coffee prices have gone through the roof. Now your asked, what kind of tea would you like. Tea is good and the price is right.
Glory Holes ((also spelled gloryhole and glory-hole) ) as every gay man knows is a hole in a wall, or other partition, often between public lavatory stalls or adult video arcade booths for people to engage in sexual activity or observe the person in the next cubicle while one or both parties masturbate. The partition maintains anonymity. Body parts including fingers, tongue and penis may be used for anonymous oral, vaginal and/or anal intercourse.
I had a friend who called it Maintenance, frequenting places like Islington subway station and College Park washrooms, until he got caught in a stall at Kipling Station many years ago and was slapped with a small fine. He told me most of his anonymous customers were married men, not gay men. We would sit on the patio of the former Future Shop bakery near Runnymede Road. He would smile and chuckle, as a married man would walk by with wife and kids in tow and say there goes a Moment, I just did at him in a High Park washrooms. Moments was his keyword for glory holers.
Upscale doughnuts, with fresh ingredients and imaginative toppings, are already common in the United States, but Glory Hole Doughnuts owner Ashley Jacot De Boinod, a former pastry chef at Buca, began making doughnuts for the love of it, not to follow a trend. She likely doesn't have a clue, what the real meaning of Gloryhole is to the gay community.
Chef Jacot De Boinod has open two new places in Toronto; Thor Espresso Bar at 35 Bathurst st. and The Burger Bar, 319 Augusta Avenue in Kensignton Market. Both locations are in Gay Toronto's Queer West Village.
