Donuts holds a special place in everyone’s heart (and stomach)—they’ve been there for a long time, usually as mid-day munchies or as a gift to friends and family. However, like with many nostalgic favorites, a new generation of bakers (er, fryers) would emerge to turn the treat on its head and, like their cupcake relatives, create their own leveled-up versions of the deep-fried treat. Who are we to whine?
Here are 10 spots worth hitting up anytime a hankering for donut shops hits.
