Vote for Your Favorite Donuts!

Donuts… mmmm! In the past we’ve done a donut trail map, which you can check out below, but I think a vote is in order. Who has the best donuts?! We tried to include the shops people have mentioned before, but you are of course welcome to write in an option as well. Then we’ll announce the winners so we can all try the best of the best. We are also including a question about paczki because that’s coming up on February 16, 2021. Thanks for participating!

Donut Trail Map

Our readers nominated their favorite donuts shops in the suburbs and most of the spots that made the list were mentioned multiple times! It’s tempting to do a donut tour… so why not? We put together map so you can determine a route and mark them off as you go. While you are on the donut trail, check back with us and share your experiences in the comments section below! We would love to hear the ratings you give each one and what kind of donuts you tried.
