Sure, you can attend church if you are need of a little holy spirit, but that involves tracking down a clean pair of skinny jeans and not snoring in public, so go easy on yourself this Sunday and aim for the holEy spirit instead, it’s much tastier.
This tiny, endearingly-scrubby little NE Sandy doughnut hole in the wall’s booths fill early with loyal customers who read the paper and argue passionately over black coffee & fresh doughnuts, so get your giant apple fritter to eat in and soak up the old-timey ambiance.
Straight out of your greatest childhood memories (real or wishful), a visit to this storybook Broadway bakery is almost better than going to Grandma’s house. Go early, get a dozen donuts and eat them all in the car. I mean, take them to work and share them with your grateful colleagues.
My personal pick for Portland’s top doughnut shop, this Alberta mainstay always seems to have a full case and plenty of options ‘fresh from the oven.’ Cake, crueller, chocolate-glazed? I don’t know. Two of each! Plus a few buttermilk bars. Love the all-accommodating hours too.
Come for the gelato and stay for the pink doughnuts…or something like that. I never ever get tired of Staccato’s gorgeous little doughnut display, and how can a girl help but love the pink-frosted princess doughnut??
Those seeking Disneyland-worthy lines and cream-filled cock 'n balls will be overjoyed with their experience at this 24-hour downtown doughnut den.
One of the coziest spots in town to sip a cup of Ristretto, this darling Belmont Street cafe has a dangerous secret--they make their own fresh donuts on the premises. Piping hot from the fryer, rolled in cinnamon sugar or dipped in chocolate, and only one dollar each; you'll suddenly get what I mean by dangerous about midway through your fifth. Speaking of which, if you buy 5, the sixth one is free.
You can’t beat the fantasmic blueberry doughnut at this strip mall donuteria, but if you aren’t quick about it, they’re often sold out. So you should probably go right now. Right now! Hurry!
Good, simple, small batch (which equals super fresh) donuts are Coco’s game, and their glazed old-fashioned is a flawless rendition. This location’s right on the Max line, although you really should walk, for calorie-burning purposes.
Good for a quick coffee and doughnut pick me up after a depleting Lloyd Center shopping excursion—there’s something inherently restorative about the cocoa-dusted, chocolate covered espresso bean-sprinkled Coco and a cappuccino (made with Water Avenue Coffee).
This eccentric little strip mall donut shop’s offerings are unique, fresh and not overly sweet, so I never feel too guilty partaking. A cup of coffee + a colorful booth + the cardamom glaze and toasted almond topped Shizzle = an excellent mood-lifter on a dreary winter morning.
All the off-the-wall donuts you’ve come to know and love/like/scorn, but with an abbreviated wait (usually). Plus, there’s something inherently fun about buying your maple bacon bars & Mango Tangos in a bright pink building filled with pinball machines and Kenny Rogers portraiture.
The raw honey and sea salt rolled mini doughnuts are nothing short of life changing. Pair a dozen (trust me, you'll finish them all) with one of the signature chai lattes, “dirtied” up with an Extracto espresso shot.
