2. Blue Star Donuts 1237 SW Washington St, Portland, OR 97205 (Downtown)

Blue Star's donuts are made from a brioche recipe that originated in France, and the buttery dough takes 18 hours to process before it's fried in rice oil the next morning and served fresh. The sophisticated flavors are a stark contrast to what's on the shelf at Portland's other doughnuttery, the eccentric Voodoo Doughnut. Look there for slabs of bacon and Oreo cookie bits; here you'll find blueberry bourbon basil glaze and chipotle chocolate ganache, and okay, a bacon donut dotted with crunchy bits.

5. Tonallis Donut Shop 2805 NE Alberta St, Portland, OR 97211 (Alberta Arts Dist)

Low on frills, high on charm. Though their classic is the old-fashioned, there's nothing tired about this place.
