Having grown up in New Bedford Mass, and having Krispy Kreme come into my grown-up state of Connecticut in the last year (they're even in the casino now!), I can honestly say that absolutely NOTHING compares to a vanilla cream donut from Ma's Donuts on Acushnet Avenue in the North end of New Bedford! a bite into them was pure heaven. i still dream about Ma's Donuts!!!

No, Chinese crullers are sticks of long fried dough that are slightly salty. We add cut them up and dunk them in our rice congee or sweet mung bean porridge or eat them as is!

Mmm, mmm, good!

Krispy Kremes are overrated. They taste like you are eating a powder puff with no flavor. UGH! Is this the best the south has to offer?

The best doughnuts are found at Deisings in Kingston, NY. Krispy Kreme makers take note-you need to visit there to make doughnuts right. They are flavorful, fresh, and they taste like they have some substance.

looks like my native massachusetts is the nation's donut capital. and towards that end, there's a little donut house in westport that supposed to make the n'est plus ultra of donuts, a "long john" which is an elongated, yeast donut, split, and filled with creme and a dollup of raspberry jam. they've even been written up in gourment magazine and other high falutin' foodie publications. but i cant remember the name of the place, maybe someone else knows where i'm talking about.

I don't know whether local donut places haven't sprung up here because of Krispy Kreme--it's a big new thing to the rest of the country but in the 35 years I've lived in SC I don't ever remember not having them--but we really don't have a local fabulous donut. Bakeries with cake and pie and such, sure, but not donuts. I envy you Massachusettsians, or whatever.

I like KK fine--we go there about every three months or so--but the one thing that I miss, like a lot of posters have noted here, is a good cake donut--KK's is no good. The only one I've ever had anywhere that I really remembered was at World's Best Donuts in Grand Marais, MN. Fabulous plain cake and granulated-sugar covered little knots, and great uncomplicated 50 cent coffee too. They also have bear claws and jelly-filled long johns and such, but it's the simple plain ones I love the best. Plus the tiny inside is covered with pictures of places all over the world that people have hauled their WBD coffee mugs and taken pictures to send back.

My favorite local shop for doughnuts is McEntyre's Bakery in Smyrna, Georgia (suburban Atlanta). The owner and his sons are third and fourth generation bakers. They know their craft. Actually their cinnamon fries are their most popular item - very tasty, especially when the tray is still warm. Glazed doughnuts are wonderful here.

My favorite memory around doughnuts is from the Spudnut franchise in my hometown of Farmington, New Mexico. One of my absolute favorite childhood memories (from the 1950s)is of going into the Spudnut Shop, taking a warm maple spudnut off the tray by the door and going to the counter to eat it. They were still in operation when I moved from New Mexico to Georgia in 1982.

I'm reminded of a story about Cincinnati's local Busken's Bakery stores.

My wife is a nurse at Shriners Hospitals for Children - Cincinnati Burn Unit. She's been there for 21 years. Since our son has been in school, she's cut back to 3-11 p.m., three evenings a week, but she used to work 3 p.m.-3 a.m. three times a week.

During those days, every so often, somebody would delay their lunch (or dinner or whatever you call the meal you eat at 10 at night)and run out to Busken's main location, at Madison & Edwards Roads in Hyde Park, which is open 24 hours. They knew that, if they got there at 1 a.m., the first batch of glazed donuts was just finished cooking and glazing and was being put out for sale. They'd have warm donuts as a snack.

Vickie came to love Krispie Kreme, and laments the closing of our local chain. But in her memories, those late-in-the-shift beauties from Busken are the best donuts she remembers.

Shipley is based here in Houston (1936) and still family owned. The founder devised a recipe which included unflavored gelatin added to the dough to make the doughnuts lighter than others; unfortunately, it also meant they absorbed more grease. Warm, they're what I've been eating all my life and they're what doughnuts are supposed to taste like, but at room temp they can be pretty awful.

The chain has spread to several southern states.

When I worked near another donut chain now long gone whose name I can't remember, I liked their crullers and cake donuts better and didn't go to Shipley for a long time. I mostly go to Shipley for sausage and cheese kolaches on the rare occasion I leave the house before 10:30am; over the years they've grown and now are almost the size of a hot dog. 2 of them make a good breakfast-on-the-go. I usually can't pass up a donut, maybe filled or iced, or a fritter, but I would hardly ever go there if it weren't for the sausage and cheese kolaches. My favorite breakfast pastry would actually be a cheese or poppy seed or fruit kolache, not a donut.

The coffee at Shipley is very weak.

KK opened in central CT a while back to traffic jams and huge publicity. Lots of smiling youngsters. Then, nothing. No hype...just lots of New Englanders used to excellent local donuts staying away in droves. The place may have closed. No more lines.

Personally, I find KK much too sweet and almost totally lacking in taste. May be a Southern thing, as one poster noted above.

I too prefer cake-type or old fashioned donuts that just seem to compliment a good cup of coffee. I'll even give credit to DD...years ago before they discovered the "wisdom" of having their products produced en masse at a central commissary, they actually made donuts in each shop. Their "Dunkin' Donut" (with a handle for dunking) was terrific...crispy on the outside and cakey on the inside with lots of vanilla/nutmeg flavor. Same for their crullers. Now, their "sticks" stink. Mass produced yuck. Fortunately, New England has quite a few locals that still know what a donut is supposed to taste like.

On the coast of North Carolina, well below the Outer Banks and just outside of Wilmington, lies the resort town of Carolina Beach. As property values continue to rise, one wonders how much longer the small and somewhat seedy boardwalk can hold onto its unreconstructed honky-tonk hangers-on which include everything from bumper-cars to tattoo parlors. One of the oldest and best-loved of these businesses is Britt's Doughnuts (at #11, the Boardwalk). Made here in the same way since 1939, Britt's doughnuts are a throwback to a time before rosepetal glazes or chipotle-chocolate fillings could be taken seriously. This is a glazed yeast-raised doughnut, but approaches the product in a manner which predates and differs markedly from that of the famous chain of Winston-Salem.

The doughnut is a bit larger and definitely more substantial than a Krispy Kreme. One bites through a glazed and crispy brown exterior to a chewier, more substantial interior. The sugar, the crunchy surface, and this creamy marrow remain on the tongue long enough to meld together into the sort of archetypal pastry experience knowing locals travel far for. Rather than dissolve at once in a pouf of sugary fat, Britt's doughnut allows sufficient time for appreciation and finishes as a pastry should: bread-based - not oil, sugar or air.

Britt's is only open in season (spring and summer) and is a pleasant thirty minute drive from Wilmington's riverfront.

Was back in Indianapolis in July (I live in New Mexico now). If you go to Indianapolis sometimes, try Long's Bakery on Southport Road, a short distance east of the tracks. I grew up eating their donuts and other goodies (my dad would often get donuts or rolls there after church), but hadn't been there in 20 years.

During our visit,a friend of ours took us over there to grab goodies for breakfast (coffee was going to be at Starbucks). Amazing Danish, yeast donuts, cookies, and cinnamon pinwheels (thin and crispy). Now I know why I've never been a fan of chain donuts; I got spoiled when I was a kid.

There's a little bakery/restaurant called Duck's Cosmic Kitchen in Avondale Estates, east of Decatur, east of Atlanta, that makes cake doughnuts the like of which I've never seen - dissolve-in-the-mouth light, with a full, slightly citrusy flavor. They open late mornings, however, so having those doughnuts first thing in the day takes some planning.

After seven years of owning a computer, I realized the other day that I was finally getting bored with it. Then I found this site. It has restored my faith in the internet.

Anyway, there's a farm/orchard here in Oldwick, New Jersey called Melick's Town Farm. It's a produce stand and bakery. Their baked goods are excellent, and the donuts are exactly what God had in mind when he invented them. They're on Rt 523, just north of I-78. Unfortunately, since they're firstly a produce stand, they're only open from April 1 thru November. Only two more months away, as I write this.

where three shelves of mug racks hold locals' cups (I was there for a local coming in for an order and forgetting they don't take debit, so the lady wrote down his tab and said come back later):

I regret being unable to find anything like them here in Santa Fe, but there are certainly more choices here for breakfast burritos (oops, wrong topic).

Mike's in Everett did always have a good reputation, but I never tried them, even when I would go by while taking the back route between Cambridge/Somerville and the airport.


Russell (formerly Goodale) Orchards in Ipswich makes an excellent cider donut, and fans of Mikes should check out Marty's in the same town.

I recently moved from the North Shore of MA to Central CT. So far I've been pretty impressed with the offerings from the Whole Donut chain.

And as far as KK goes, I haven't had them hot, but they weren't any worse cold than what DD puts out. I think New Englanders are just too parochial to allow themselves to like anything made by a Southern chain!

Grebe's Bakery in Milwaukee WI has incredibly good danish and a nice selection of donuts. The long johns have a sensual feel, the crispy crust over the softly yielding interior. The glazed croissants are possibly the lightest donuts I've ever tasted. The fist-sized apple fritters are the most substantial I've ever had; just one is a meal.

Favorite childhood donut shop, probably long closed-- A1 Pizzeria and Donut Shop in Wickcliff OH. Their choclate frosted/coconut covered donut was perfection.

My absolute favorite donuts are from Earl's in Chatsworth, CA, which we reviewed on this site -- and which was also quoted last year by another food site as being reviewed by the Sterns, though I wonder if Jane and Michael ever visited there. Living in CT, however, I must get a box from Neil's in Yalesville on my way to and from New Haven. Closer to home, there is Gerry's in Ellington, and in the Bay area there is King Pin in Berkeley, and All Star in SF's Marina district.

And this may be a comletely different topic, but my favorite cider donuts can be found at Atkins Farm in South Hadley, MA -- better than any other cider donut I've had in VT, ME, NH, or CT.
