You doughnut have to tell us twice to enjoy a doughnut or two — especially if it’s National Doughnut Day (June 1).
In honor of the ultimate foodie holiday, we’re highlighting the best doughnut shops in the U.S. But be warned because the following Instagram accounts will urge you to head to your local doughnut shop.
California Donuts (Los Angeles, California)
This Insta-famous doughnut shop went viral for its unique and totally picture-esque doughnuts. If a doughnut shop were a celeb, this one would be an A-lister.
Blue Star Donuts (Portland, Oregon)
There may be an abundance of delicious treats in Portland, but Blue Star Donuts takes the cake (pun intended). These aren’t just your average Sunday morning doughnuts — Blue Star offers unique flavors like Orange Olive Oil and Blueberry Bourbon Basil to satisfy the foodie in us all.
Leonard’s Bakery (Honolulu, Hawaii)
When you think of Hawaii, you don’t exactly think doughnuts. However, this little island shop earned itself quite the rep that even mainlanders fly over to pick up a box. Open since 1952, Leonard’s is home to the original malasada, an egg-shaped, fried doughnut covered in granulated sugar.
Doughnut Vault (Chicago, Illinois)
The windy city offers more than just amazing deep dish pizza. Doughnut Vault takes the classic doughnut and brings it up a level or two. If you plan on stopping by, be sure to arrive early because there will likely be a line!
Destination Donuts (Columbus, Ohio)
Make the most out of cheat day with these decadent treats. From Double Chocolate Almond to Vegan Eggnog, Destination Donut isn’t afraid to go bold with its flavors.
Blackbird Donuts (Boston, Massachusetts)
This bakery is known for its brioche-based doughnuts. One item to look out for on the menu? The savory Everything Bagel Donut — it’s filled with whipped cream cheese and topped with the everything bagel seasoning.
District Donuts (New Orleans, Louisiana)
Move over beignets, there’s another pastry in town. District Donuts is a New Orleans joint that offers seven awesome rotating flavors each day (and it sells out fast!). All of the doughnuts are made from scratch — yes, even the sprinkles. Now that’s something to celebrate!
Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts (Charleston, South Carolina)
Talk about gourmet! This Southern doughnut shop offers culinary flavors that have earned itself a name on King Street. With flavors like Beet Salad, Blue Cheese Cabernet, and Fancy Fig, it’s safe to say that Glazed Gourmet isn’t your average doughnut shop.
Doughnut Plant (New York, New York)
Famous for its light, chewy donuts, this shop has made its mark in Manhattan. Can’t decide which one to try first? We recommend the peanut butter and jelly doughnut!
Gourdough’s (Austin, Texas)
Be prepared to share these fluffy treats (because everything’s bigger in Texas!). Want to do it like a real Texan? Order the Mother Clucker fried chicken atop a delicious doughnut bun.
Five Daughters Bakery (Nashville, Tennessee)
This family-run bakery is just too cute. This Insta-worthy doughnut shop is serving Nashville non-GMO and organic doughnuts. Not only will you be obsessed with the treats this shop has to offer, but you’ll also adore the family behind it.
