Perhaps if you grew up with a restaurant named after you, you would eventually have to get in the food business. Karma has worked on Lilly Cary, daughter of Kathy Cary and namesake of Lilly’s, Bardstown Rd. After baking at Please & Thank You on Market St., Lilly started making doughnuts served in La Peche, the takeout business connected to the restaurant. She has now started ROCKRGRL7 Donuts, a doughnut delivery service.

No one who knows Lilly will be surprised that her approach to doughnut flavors is a bit different from what you might find at Dunkins or Nord’s. Raspberry ginger, zucchini lemon,  lemon curd, crème brulee, rhubarb jam, rosemary olive oil and the Have Mercy, topped with caramelized apples and brown butter, the Almond Creamery (almond milk and cinnamon), and Dylan’s Donut (orange zest, lavender and olive oil) are among her offerings.

She is baking on the weekends, for delivery to the Highlands, Germantown and downtown only on Sunday and Monday right now. La Peche  continues to offer her creations as well. You can follow her at  and email for information on ordering.
