Cafe Carolina may have to rename one of its pastries thanks to Norah O’Donnell.
O’Donnell, the “CBS This Morning” co-anchor who moderated Wednesday night’s U.S. Senate debate, was reporting for the show from Raleigh this morning. Before she signed off, she held up the Raleigh-based bakery’s distinctive box full of pastries to show co-host Gayle King, saying:
“Gayle ... I know you like those cronuts, but this is a bagel and a donut that they brought us here, so I’m calling it a bonut.”
The goodies had been delivered from the Cameron Village location in what King called an example of “southern hospitality.”
Never miss a local story.
They also discussed the debate, which they called “Carolina Clash.” See it here.
