A single $100 donut is sprinkled with 24-karat gold flakes and drenched in icing made with Cristal champagne. Inside, it's filled with Ube mousse — made from mashing purple yams — and champagne jelly.

Also on the menu is a "black and gold" donut that's topped with 24-karat gold flakes and flavored with an IPA beer from Brooklyn. Or, if gold just really isn't in your breakfast budget, there's always the $40 per dozen option — which gets you 12 purple donuts filled with Ube jam.
