Top 5 Donut Shops in the Twin Cities

It’s simple, donuts are delicious, you know it, we know it, it’s universal. And that’s why we’re so excited to share with you our Top 5 Favorite Donut Shops in the Twin Cities!

Imagine that sunny Saturday morning where you don’t have any plans for the day, the smell of freshly cut grass is rolling in and you’re relaxing on your patio with a box filled with the must scrumptious donuts. How perfect, right!? But.. what if you bite into that donut and it is a dry, unflavorable mess? Day destroyed (yes, we’re dramatic)! To make sure that never happens to you we went on a search for the best donuts in the Twin Cities. We got gluten free donuts, filled donuts, raised, vegan, and so much more! And they are all promised to create the best Saturday morning!

Top five donut shops in Minnesota

Here we go…

  1. Glam Doll Donuts –

They craft their dough, fillings, and toppings to be 100% from scratch. They truly care about providing a wonderful donut experience in every aspect. Not to mention, it’s just about the cutest environment you will ever experience!

2. Bogart’s Doughnut Co. –

They’re simple, fresh and delicious. Best part, they use local ingredients! And they have that famous Instagram sign.


3. Mojo Monkey –

These go fast, and with reason. Fresh donuts from real recipes and boy, are they good!


4. Wuollet Bakery –

They’re legendary. Having been in business for over 70 years you know they have perfected and re-perfected their donuts.


5. Sarah Janes Bakery –

They put a whole new meaning to glazed donuts, they have taken those “simple” donuts and revamped them to be mouth watering deliciousness.


We’re so lucky to be surrounded by so many talented cooks in the Twin Cities. Makes for a great Saturday (everyday) morning experience.

  1. I love Bogarts (for raised doughnuts) and Mojo Monkey (for cake) but wasn’t too impressed by how tough and chewy the yeast doughnuts were at Glam Doll. Great toppings but a sub-par doughnut. I’ll have to try the other two places mentioned.


  2. If you want a vegan or gluten free doughnut, or something with bacon and nutella filling, served by a lumbersexual with 2 inch ear plugs, and don’t mind paying $4 for a single doughnut, these are definitely your top 5.
    *If you want a tasty glazed, or a classic cruller, forget it and go to SugaRush, Granny’s, Donut Hut, Mel-o-glaze or AngelFood. Being “hipster” does not equal being a good doughnut.


    1. There’s something for everyone! We haven’t tried all the places you mentioned but will have to add them to our list of places to try ASAP. You can never go wrong with a good, classic donut. Thanks for the list of new places to try!


  3. Not the best 5 by any means, just the most “hipster” donuts. Adding bacon on everything and charging double the going rate for a donut does not make it better.
