The 23 Hottest Doughnut Shops in America Right Now

View as Map

Here are 23 of the most buzzed-about specialty doughnut shops across the United States. What follows is a list of spots that have, for the most part, opened over the last twelve months. These include Umami founder Adam Fleischman's doughnut concept inside a concept (& a Donut in Umamicatessen), two brand new fried-chicken-and-doughnut restaurants in Washington, DC (GBD and Astro Doughnuts) and a second location for Philadelphia's iconic chicken-and-doughnut restaurant (Federal Donuts). There's also a scratch-doughnut shop from Portland's Micah Camden (Blue Star Donuts) and plenty of wild flavors and toppings to go around.

Many thanks to the Eater city editors for their nominations. And please remember, these are ordered geographically and not by any other ranking. To the map:
