Doughnuts have certainly been having their time in the spotlight. There’s no limit on flavor combinations, making this trendy food one to stick around. Here are some shops across the country worth adding to your foodie bucket list.
Doughnut Plant – New York, NY
This New York City-based shop prides itself on offering doughnuts with a variety of bases—yeast, cake, and dough—filled with all the homemade fillings you could want. The owner is known for going all out, and making sure that every doughnut is crafted to perfection.
Whoo’s Donuts – Sante Fe, NM
If you’re worried about the health factor of this dessert, take a trip to New Mexico to visit Whoo’s. This all-organic shop has flavors like blue corn lavender, green chile pepper, and more that bring that New Mexican flair into one tasty treat.
Kamehameha Bakery – Honolulu, HI
This bakery is filled with scones, danishes, and cookies, but the real winner are their poi-glazed doughnuts. Kamehameha uses the taro plant to create the unique flavor that you bite into. Make sure to head there early, as their poi doughnuts are known to go fast.
Doughnut Vault – Chicago, IL
This shop takes the term “hole in the wall” to a whole other level. This tiny space may look simple on the outside, but is known for having some of the best doughnuts around. Prepare for a long line, but it will be well worth it for the cookies and cream or birthday cake flavored bite.
Pip’s Original – Portland, OR
It’s hard to talk about doughnuts without mentioning Portland, and while more well-known shops usually get all the glory, Pip’s is well worth the mention. Their doughnuts may be mini, but these sweet treats, and homemade chai to top them off, are packed with flavor.
