BEEPBOP DONUTS

A sweet treat in the inner city – Beebop is where it’s at. Pictured smiling above alongside an employee, The Amazing Spiderman’s, Andrew Garfield was seen grabbing some baked goods from this particular shop last fall – though we can’t help but wonder what he ordered. After all, you can tell a lot about a person by what they say their favourite donut is.
