Whether for breakfast or a dessert, glazed or filled with jams and creams, the delectable doughnut is a fan favorite. In honor of the round pastry, June 1 has been dubbed National Doughnut Day, and Palm Beach County is bursting with local shops serving up the delicacies.
They say bigger is better, but at this Boca Raton store, they go the other way with no hesitation: mini doughnuts. Made with a vanilla cake base, the doughnuts are dubbed such names as Winter is Coming, Ninja’s Pick, Sugar Baby, Hands Off My!, and I’m a Boss. Small in size, but plenty of attitude. Plus, today you’ll be gifted with a mini doughnut with each transaction made. 126 NE Second St., Boca Raton; 561/617-1887; godoughboy.com
The stores’ “donut engineers” begin making the delicious pastries at midnight so they’re fresh and ready to go when the shops open at 6 a.m. Flavors include old faithfuls but they also serve up some unique flavors like blueberry white iced sprinkles, Butterfinger, Heath Bar, Kit Kat, and the fabled Kronut. There’s currently stores across the county, and a location is coming soon to Boca Raton! 141 Center St., Jupiter; 561/741-5290; jupiterdonuts.com
Not only is it National Doughnut Day, but it’s the day before this Delray Beach shop turns 1! All the doughnuts made from scratch, as well as the jams, compotes, fillings, glazes and toppings.
