June 3rd is National Donut Day, and we are a nation who loves those sweet, round treats. The rise of the artisan donut is taking the country by storm, and we wanted to share some of our favorites. Trust us, these destinations are worth a road trip. Voodoo Doughnuts www.voodoodoughnut.com/ One of the pioneers of the artisan donut is this Portland, Oregon staple. As kooky as they are delicious, Voodoo Donut’s signature sweets are all too tempting to resist. Need proof? Just take consider their expansion from Portland to Eugene, Oregon, to Denver and Austin. VooDoo Doughnut Salty Donut www.saltydonut.com/ It didn’t take long for Miami tourists and locals alike to take note of the weekend-only donut popup shop. Some say it’s because of the permanent fixture flavors like Maple Bacon or Brown Butter and Salt. Others will tell you that the weekly rotation of specialty flavors is what keeps the masses coming back. All we know is that you better get there early, because these desirable donuts sell out fast. Salty Donut Federal Donuts www.federaldonuts.com/main/ What started as a humble shop that focused on making great donuts, killer fried chicken, and strong coffee has blossomed into a citywide enterprise. Philadelphia’s Federal Donuts is in such high demand, they went from one location to five in as many years. Maybe it’s because they offer classics alongside fancies, which means there’s a little something for everyone. Federal Donuts Glam Doll Donuts www.glamdolldonuts.com/ Dedicated to creating unique recipes and inspired by vintage style, this Minneapolis shop needs to be on your radar. Be sure to check out tempting options like the Bombshell, which is filled with Mexican chocolate and topped with cayenne pecans. The ladies at Glam Doll also serve up crullers, fritters, and vegan selections. Glam Doll Donuts Dough Doughnuts www.doughdoughnuts.com/ The focus at this New York City donut shop is on top-notch ingredients and careful craftsmanship. These are donuts that are lovingly created, and lovingly consumed, too. And for those who like to watch the magic happen, you can view the doughnuts being made while you wait. Dough Doughnuts Union Square Donuts www.unionsquaredonuts.com/ A stroll through the Boston Public Market isn’t complete without stopping for a Union Square donut or two. The original shop is located in Union Square, of course, but they also set up shop in several popular farmers markets. Seasonal flavors abound, but that doesn’t mean you should sleep on standards like the famous brown butter hazelnut crunch.
