Hurts Donut

Bring the kids — or let your inner kid out at the DFW outpost of this popular chain. Hurts is the kind of spot where wacky doughnut names are only topped by the piles of cereal, candy, and icing that decorate their products. Don’t like what you see? DIY doughnuts that incorporate all those over-the-top toppings are also an option. 

Detour Doughnuts and Coffee

Copy Link

These doughnuts for the adventurous are an experience worth driving to Frisco for, unless you’re lucky enough to live nearby. Detour combines unexpected flavors like beets and ricotta or lemon and passionfruit, resetting the menu every month with a new selection of sophisticated offerings. 

Earnest Donuts

Earl Grey, Key Lime, and Strawberry Cheesecake doughnuts, oh my! Earnest takes all the elements and flavors you’d expect to find in a great neighborhood bakery and shrinks them down into munchable doughnuts. 

Yummy Donuts

Copy Link

This neighborhood favorite is reminiscent of only the fondest childhood memories. The Oreo and peanut butter-topped doughnuts are in high demand by those who can’t quite see over the counter and the line can sometimes be out the door.

Hypnotic Donuts & Biscuits

Hypnotic is now one of the longest-running designer doughnut spots in DFW. Come to try the Canadian Healthcare, a long bar doughnut topped with maple glaze and a strip of candied bacon.

Jarams Donuts Lakewood

Copy Link

Come for the funnel cake doughnuts and stay for the fresh fruit toppings and marvelous glaze at this longstanding North Dallas doughnut destination. Don’t skip the kolaches at Jarams, which are as delectable as all the sweet stuff.

Milk • Cream

Copy Link

This spot one-ups the doughnut game by adding ice cream. If you’re like an ice cream sandwich smushed between two delicious glazed doughnuts and dipped in your favorite cereal for a crunch, this is the spot.

Urban Donut

Copy Link

Urban has many doughnut options, but the way to go in this Uptown patisserie is to hit the Selfie Bar. Start by choose from a variety of bread bases (standard yeast, a long roll, cake, and flavors including red velvet, blueberry, vanilla, and chocolate) and top it with frosting (all the expected flavors and, for the more eccentric, Oreo, peanut butter, and maple are on offer), toppings (fruits, nuts, and candies), then add a drizzle (think hot fudge or raspberry).

The Salty Donut

Copy Link

This Miami export opened its first Dallas location in 2020, and it’s already a beloved favorite. The pastries here are decadent and unique — try the horchata doughnut and the white chocolate tres leches made of brioche — and the coffee is always piping hot.

Funkytown Donuts

Copy Link

This Fort Worth doughnut destination stays true to its name: the flavor profiles are funky. Think fried dough topped with Thai tea glaze and filled with sweet cream, or pomegranate with toasted meringue. The options here change monthly, which means that every trip can be decidedly unique.
