Kane's Donuts is a local, and national, favorite. Standout varieties like the honey-dipped have landed this family-run Saugus institution on Bon Appetit's list of the country's top 10 donut spots.
This family-run, take-out only bakery has been open since the '60s, serving quality baked goods to Belmont patrons. The main attraction here are the donuts -- be sure to try their maple-frosted, chocolate-drizzled variety.
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.
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.
