••• Flor de Maiz, the Los Agaves spinoff on E. Cabrillo (next to Oku), has opened. I had heard it would serve Oaxacan food, but the restaurant referred to its offerings as “contemporary Mexican cuisine.” It could still be Oaxacan, of course; we’ll see when a menu becomes available—or stop in and report back, as I’m out of town.

••• A Restaurant Guy reader says that the former Breakfast Culture Club space “has been sold to another coffee shop.” That’s good news, if it’s quality coffee….
••• Onus Donuts, now open on State Street between Haley and Gutierrez, is worth a visit. The room is pretty spare, with an old-school diner-style counter. I’m a traditionalist when it comes to donuts, hence the cinnamon-crumb one I ordered (below), but there are also more ornate varieties (such as maple-bacon, further below), donut-hole kebabs, and vegan donuts.
