Doughnuts from Miss Reina: How to Start the Day in Placencia

Around 3AM every morning, long before the sun rises over Placencia, 80 year-old Miss Reina begins making the doughnuts. Rich, spiced with cinnamon, and generously sprinkled with sugar—these treats can be found in shops throughout the village. But the best way to get yourself some is to listen. You’ll hear her walking the streets, calling to the sleepy residents to enjoy a sugary start to the day. Just pop your head out of your window and get your breakfast from the source.
