Verna's Donut Shop
The Must-Get Donut:
A short detour from Davis Square on Mass Ave, this "locals welcome, others kind of, maybe, welcome?" Cambridge icon nearly shuttered in 2007 (after 56yrs in business), but thankfully lives on baking some of the area's top donuts (each under a buck, too!!) like the Raised and Glazed, Coconut Cake, and the Honey "Tip", a donut named for legendary Cambridge-native and Speaker of the House, Tip O'Neil. Add a chocolate glaze to said Honey "Tip" because, chocolate glaze.
