7. Glazed & Confuzed 5301 Leetsdale Dr, Denver, CO 80246

This Southeast spot is a testament to the sheer amount of flavor you can create using only all-natural, locally sourced ingredients. The offerings here are unlike anything else you’ll see in the Denver area: while the menu changes daily, expect eclectic tastes like jalapeño cerveza-cream cheese with chipotle drizzle, as well as mojito, caramelized miso, and more. Glazed & Confuzed is a pastry wonderland as seen through the eyes of Chef Josh Schwab, and while there’s ample seating available in the contemporary cafeteria-like space, we suggest getting there early -- it’s no secret that these are some of the best donuts in the state, and the queue can get quite long.
