This essential guide will help you find the best doughnut shops in town, ranging from the totally trendy to the classic and traditional.

1. Jarams Donuts

Copy Link
17459 Preston Rd
Dallas, TX 75252
(972) 248-7474
Visit Website
Despite its inconspicuous strip mall location, there’s hardly a time where Jaram’s doesn’t have a line towards the door. Naturally this means arrive as early as possible, before your pick of the tantalizing encased goodies (think croissant donuts with raspberry glaze and Star Wars-inspired offerings) are gone.

2. Sunrise Donuts

Copy Link
2615 Oak Lawn Ave
Dallas, TX 75219
(214) 522-4977
Early birds will find comfort at this Oak Lawn shop, as its doors open at 5 a.m. Standard beauties like glazed and chocolate frosted donuts are go-to options here, in addition to kolaches and $1 cinnamon rolls.

3. Mozart Bakery & Cafe

Copy Link
2625 Old Denton Rd
Carrollton, TX 75007
(972) 242-5155
If you’ve ever wanted to get your hands on a cronut, then this is the place for you. The Asian-influenced bakery features the croissant-like donut alongside a host of decorative pastries.

Copy Link
2625 Old Denton Rd
Carrollton, TX 75007
(972) 323-9700
Visit Website
If you’re looking for a little more than the traditional American donut, then the French-Asian style offerings at H-Mart are right up your alley. Inside of the Tous Les Jours Bakery, donuts come in flavors like red bean and sweet rice, perfect for those who like their donuts a little less sweet.

5. Top Pot Doughnuts

Copy Link
8611 Hillcrest Ave
Dallas, TX 75225
(469) 232-9911
Visit Website
With three locations in the metroplex, there are now more opportunities to get your hands on this Seattle import. Lovers of cake doughnuts can rejoice at the seasonal flavors, or choose from one of the standard flavors like powdered sugar or raspberry glazed. Don’t forget to try an old fashioned, it’s their specialty.

6. Hypnotic Donuts

Copy Link
9007 Garland Rd
Dallas, TX 75218
(214) 668-6999
Visit Website
There’s a reason this Casa Linda mainstay has a national reputation as a force to be reckoned with. Whether it’s pairing habanero and passion fruit, or using bacon as a staple ingredient, Hypnotic has somewhat of a magical way of doing donuts. Cozy couches (if you can find a spot) provide a great place to chill.

7. Glazed Donut Works

Copy Link
2644 Elm St
Dallas, TX 75226
(214) 741-2275
Visit Website
The crowds that line up outside of the Deep Ellum shop are only a slight indication of the goodness inside. If you’re not enticed by any of the made-from-scratch options in the glass case, go for the donut Monte Cristo, made with turkey, ham, swiss and house-made raspberry jam.

8. MOJO Donuts

Copy Link
6522 Lemmon Ave
Dallas, TX 75209
This Lemmon Ave donut shop is the perfect blend of the traditional and the creative. In addition to the usual cake and yeast donuts, you’ll find fried dough flavored with a range of delectable ingredients, ranging from cookie butter to strawberry jalapeno.

9. Lone Star Donuts

Copy Link
1725 N Beckley Ave
Dallas, TX 75208
If you’re craving made-from-scratch donuts long past those prime morning hours, then this Oak Cliff classic is for you. The shop cranks out goods until 6 p.m., meaning there’s more time in the day to get your hands on a maple bacon donut.

10. J's Donuts

Copy Link
5315 Greenville Ave
Dallas, TX 75206
Despite its location across the street from a well-known franchise, J’s gives chain donuts a run for their money. The case is kept stocked full of traditional favorites, representing the independent spirit of donuts. Grab a chocolate frosted yeast donut with sprinkles for the perfect taste of nostalgia.
