There's a PA Dutch market by me with a donut stand. Hands down my favorite donuts

As far as chains people may have heard of, fractured prune in Maryland and duck donuts in NC are awesome as well.
Apple Cider Donuts.

Worlds Fair Donuts in St Louis. Made by an ancient couple who look like they havent left the shop in 70yrs.

Union Sqr Donuts in Somervill, MA. They use Potato flour, and it gives the donuts a chew that is out of this world. GEt the maple bacon glazed. Thank me later
Chocolate glazed from Krispy Kreme  
The_Boss : 11/11/2017 10:33 am : link
I could crush a dozen in a single sitting. Maybe even more.

Could eat an entire box.
A local shop  
Gman11 : 11/11/2017 10:40 am : link
here called NC Jelly Donuts. They put the chains to shame. Best I've ever had and I've had a lot.

to me it doesnt get much better than a warm Krispy Kreme fresh through the oven when the "Hot Light" is on.

Others I like include Gibson's in Memphis (A favorite of Alton Brown) and Shipley's.

Haven't tried any franchises, but the OBX one is incredible.
Apple Cider doughnuts from local farms

usually are case closed for me.
Federal Donuts in Philly

the donuts are great, but their fried chicken is better. Yes, donuts and fried chicken is a thing. And it's amazing.
Two places for me  
10thAve : 11/11/2017 10:51 am : link
Purple Glaze in Asbury Park, NJ.

The Holy Donut in Portland, Maine. They make them potato based and are amazing.

Tough to have any others when compared to those two places.

in City Kitchen at 44th & 8th.
Jelly from Dunkies  
trueblueinpw : 11/11/2017 11:12 am : link
Jelly donut from Dunkin Donuts is my go to but the Boston cream is dry solid second place. However, if the donuts arenít fresh they arenít worth eating. Big difference between fresh and stale in just a couple of hours.
Rochester, NY Buckman's Dairy  
BlueinRoch : 11/11/2017 11:15 am : link
Gone, but not forgotten. Buckman's donuts were the best. A Sunday morning tradition in my house.

I heard the Deerfield one closed, but there is still the pompano one off of Atlantic.

Try out Jupiter donuts as well - they have one off Congress and gateway (?) I think.

Place here in Delray everyone loves callee Nani's but I can't bring myself to spending $5 per donut.

If you are ever in Maine (Wells) just over the boarder it's Congdon Donuts. You will find it on all the sites ranking donuts. Trust me worth your while whatever you like. You will buy multiple dozens to go. I have fun here a lot but I am as serious as a Heart Attack.

I have stopped at quite a few local donut shops. Many of them pretty good. Cannot even remember their names. Better than the chains
Shipley  
hassan : 11/11/2017 2:51 pm : link
Is damn good for a chain. Krispy Kreme is good. Way better than Dunkin the worst of the bunch. Too much bread in a dunkin donut.

Most local donut shops are good and better than the chains.

I will say Toronto in my recollection is the best donut town I remember offhand. Great local spots.

Yeah it's up the road from the Fairgrounds. You gotta get there early though, most of their stock is gone by noon. I've never had a more fresh donut before. I haven't tried Egypt Star yet. Speaking of, I recommend Tony's Top Hat in Catty. $1 tacos on Tuesday's.

I only live 5 minutes from there now. Will definitely have to try it out. I was going to mention that tonight because we were looking for something new. We go to Bethlehem a lot, Tapas on Main and McCarthy's are one of our favorites. Ended up going to Kutztown Tavern. Is Premise Maid ice cream open for the winter?

Yep. Premise Maid is all year.

If you're 5 mns from The Shelby, there's great Chinese takeout nearby called Mr. Wonton. Very fresh.

Ktown tavern has good beer and food. Good choice.

As far as the big chains go, Krispy Kreme glazed fresh out of the oven. In fact, it's a toss between the three.
