Kate Winslet finally gets her Honey’s Doughnuts fix (PHOTO)


Actor Kate Winslet loves Honey’s Doughnuts in Deep Cove so much she gushed about them on the red carpet this fall at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

“I pine for it – I pine for Honey’s Doughnuts in Deep Cove. Pine for Honey’s Doughnuts in Deep Cove,” Winslet said empathically looking directly at the camera.

Well, the star finally got her doughnut fix at the well-loved spot. On Monday, Honey’s posted to their Instagram feed a photo of Winslet in their shop, sporting a Honey’s t-shirt.

Honey’s staff recall Winslet and her family making multiple stops to the doughnut shop over the summer. Winslet was in B.C. to film “The Mountain Between Us,” and really fell in love with Vancouver.

“I love Vancouver,” she said during the same TIFF interview. “I was so happy to be there and sad to leave. Really truly…The nature is incredible — wild, wonderful nature. We left thinking why, honestly, are we leaving?”

Winslet is among many celebs who are crushing hard on the city and surrounding areas. Recently Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared his deep love for Vancouver (and even got a “day” named by the City in his honour).

Honey’s Doughnuts owner Ashak Saferali has said, though, that while the celeb love is “awesome,” he tries not to make a spectacle out of his famous fans, citing several other high profile customers from past years.

It’s hard to blame Winslet for her love of those delectable Honey’s doughnuts, or for Vancouver, either.
