To celebrate National Donut Day, we’ve rounded up our top 5 favorite donut spots in America. Ready to sweeten up your life? Thought so!
BLUE STAR DONUTS (Los Angeles, Ca)
With locations in Portland and Los Angeles, Blue Star Donuts whips up some of the most delicious donuts in the game. Flavors like pistachio cream cheese and crème brulee mean there’s something for every mood and every personality. If you’re planning on making a trip to the location near you, be prepared for a line—these delectable treats are very in demand and always sell out!
THE DONUT STOP (St. Louis, MO)
The Donut Stop in St. Louis has been around for over 60 years, so you know these are good! With over 100 flavors to choose from, this local gem serves up everything from original glazed goodness to a treat called a cinnamon glob. We highly suggest you stop by if you’re around the area (or if you’re inclined to travel across the country for a donut, that is).
DOUGHNUT VAULT (Chicago, IL)
If you’re on the hunt for the perfect buttermilk donut, Doughnut Vault is the spot for you. They’re always jam-packed with customers, thanks to the fact that their fluffy creations range from old-fashioned basics to super sweet innovative specials. And while they have regulars on the menu every day, they switch things up consistently with special flavors.
PETER PAN DONUT & PASTRY SHOP (Brooklyn, NY)
While we can’t help but admit that our favorite feature of this shop is the employee uniforms, the donuts are pretty amazing, too. With the same prices they had over 60 years ago, donuts cost around a dollar each, and this old-school shop isn’t changing that anytime soon. And guess what? They’re SO GOOD.
WHOO’S DONUTS (Santa Fe, NM)
Based in Sante Fe, Whoo’s Donuts are not only beyond delicious, they sell out every day, too. And with flavors like maple bacon and chili brown sugar, these are some of the most innovative treats in the game. Do yourself a favor and stop by STAT.
