Norwood has recently gotten a little sweeter with the addition of over-the-top donut maker Starlight Doughnut Lab.
Owner/baker Ben Greiwe opened up shop at 4603 Carter Ave. He says he’s been renovating the petite white building where his brick-and-mortar has been located for two years.
Starlight Doughnut Lab has been in operation since the start of January 2019, when Greiwe made some donuts for a New Year’s Eve party at Nine Giant Brewpub in Pleasant Ridge. After positive feedback, he began selling them weekly at the brewery. Since then, Greiwe’s small-batch baked goods have been available at destinations including Nine Giant and its Fermatorium, Apricot Coffee House in Pleasant Ridge, Proud Hound in Silverton, Copper & Flame in Over-the-Rhine and more.
The Norwood storefront offers both cake donuts and 48-hour brioche donuts. Greiwe hopes to eventually expand the menu to include cinnamon rolls, fritters and more pastries.
