South Jersey’s first Krispy Kreme opened in Collingswood today. Though you could ostensibly walk there for dessert after a meal at Tortilla Press, you’ll be more likely to pass through the drive-through on your way home, given its location in a former KFC on the heavily trafficked corner of Haddon and Cuthbert Aves., just a few blocks off downtown’s main strip. But if you do fancy stopping in for a spell, the donut palace (which has its next local opening scheduled for Bensalem) is adding creature comforts like a lounge — outfitted with a flat-screen TV and free WI-FI — where you can sit, sip lattes and cheer on your favorite TV police detective as he cracks the inevitable cynical observations about sex, criminals and donuts (probably in that order).
Speaking of cops, the addition might be a welcome addition for C-wood’s finest but not so much for nearby McMillan’s Bakery, a mainstay since 1939 that’s rumored to be konsidering the possibility of klosing.
