3. Verna's Donut Shop 2344 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02140-1852 (North Cambridge)

This Cambridge favorite is known for serving up fresh donuts daily, each to the tune of less than a buck! At that price it's easy to sample a variety, but make sure you don't leave before you try their MVP -- the Chocolate Honey Dip.

4. Union Square Donuts 16 Bow St, Somerville, MA 02143 (Union Square)

Union Square Donuts is a charming, unassuming counter-serve in Somerville that is well on its way to knocking Dunkin' off its throne with a variety of specialty doughnuts. Each doughnut is thick and fluffy while remaining airy and light. The fan favorite is Maple Bacon, a maple glazed donut topped with pieces of crispy, salty bacon. Rotating specials include the peanut butter cream-filled donut topped with Fluff glaze and peanuts, in honor of Somerville's annual Fluff Fest.

Make sure you get to this West Roxbury hole-in-the-wall by 1pm, or you're going to miss out on delicious donuts and some of the best sugar sprinkled jelly sticks in the area.
