Masterpiece Donuts & Coffee | Gourmet donuts with your choice of premium icings, toppings & drizzles in an inviting and community art-filled space.
I feel like donuts are the new cupcakes. And not those gas station donuts that look like you know what they’re going to taste like, but end up hurting your feelings with that off taste that you just can’t put your finger on. I’m talking about gourmet, made to order donuts that will put any other o-shaped treat you’ve had to shame. Donuts like the ones you can get now at Masterpiece Donuts & Coffee in Arcadia.
You’ll find these delicious morning treats, along with illy coffee, on the Northwest corner of 40th Street and Indian School Road. The relaxed eatery has a family-friendly community feel was created by Sheri and Tom Schrader, who have had a life-long love affair with donuts. “I’ve literally had donuts for breakfast every day for the past 30-plus years,” Tom says. “I stop and get one on the way to the office, and on weekends I stop and get two. So, over the decades Sheri and I have learned the best donut shops in 50 markets across North America.”
I think it’s safe to say that there have been some pretty stellar donuts on that delicious quest. And that is precisely what motivated the move from the boardroom to the kitchen to get Masterpiece off the ground. The power couple have taken their extensive business knowledge to create their dream donut shop. In that they have created a space that is fast-causal, customer-friendly while still being highly-efficient and incredibly charming.
