A Boston legacy, Kane’s Donuts has been serving donuts in the area for over 50 years. With offerings like a crème brûlée filled donut, cookies and creme, and a buttercrunch donut, it’s easy to see why Kane’s is irresistible. 
Artisan donuts with locations in the South End, Brighton, and Fenway, this Boston shop creates both cakes and raised doughnuts, topped with a variety of house-made glazes, frostings, and toppings. For vegans, Blackbird offers vegan options, that are not made with any animal products.
Don’t let the exterior of this shop fool you. Doughboy Donuts in South Boston boasts both a deli and a donut drive-through. Are you a night owl who gets hankerings for sweet treats? Fear not, for the Donut Shop is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Twin Donuts

Located in Allston, Twin Donuts opens bright and early (and we mean early: 4 AM!). The shop has the exterior of a 1950s diner and has been an inexpensive staple in Boston for donuts. If you’re not a donut fan, Twin Donuts also offers savory breakfasts that are quick and not hard on your wallet.
