Can’t lay the blame at Puffin doughnut’s feet for this one- they have been gone for at least 15 years!

They used to have that awesome little train in the window.

I loved that place, I was even there the afternoon the manager got his hand dunked into one of the frying vats by an employee he has just sacked.

Interesting – and very telling – how ACTPol Media repeatedly uses the name Belconnen Mall when Westfield has been trying to get everybody to call it Westfield Belconnen since the mall was privatised in 1985. Some habits never die …
