We thought it was impossible to improve upon doughnuts — but we were very, very wrong.
A Prague café called Good Food Coffee and Bakery is gaining worldwide attention for its trdelníks: cinnamon-flavored, deep-fried dough spirals that make very, very photogenic vessels for ice cream, apples, whipped cream, berries and Nutella.
Trdelníks may be a traditional dessert for the lucky citizens of the Czech Republic, but to us, these cone-like pastries — often coated in melted chocolate — are the most spectacularly modern things we’ve ever seen.
Naturally, we’ve spent all day looking at Instagram photos of them, and we advise you do the same.

Excuse us as we buy one-way, non-refundable plane tickets to Prague. Sorry, rainbow bagels stuffed with Funfetti cream cheese. We’ve found a new crush.
