Opened back in 1983 in the town of Medfield, Donut Express and Cakes has been perfecting its recipes for years. This thoughtful spot’s bakers craft every cake and doughnut from scratch on premises, resulting in delicious bursts of flavor and freshness.

Ever So Humble Pie Company

If you want your doughnuts with options, check out the Ever So Humble Pie Company in East Walpole. As this local bakery’s name implies, you can always stop for a pie, including delicious seasonal offerings like peach in the summer. For pastries, check out scones so good that the bakery had to put a limit on the amount that customers could buy.

But don’t forget about the doughnuts, though, which come in a tempting cinnamon variety. For those who love a good doughnut but might want to cut back on some of the grease, these little pieces of perfection come oven-baked rather than fried, resulting in a lighter, less greasy feel. But don’t worry about these doughnuts becoming a health food. They’re still dipped in butter and coated with cinnamon and sugar. With doughnuts and other pastries baked fresh every morning, you may want to run, not walk, to this pie company while the pastries are still hot.

Honey Dew Donuts

Honey Dew Donuts has a variety of locations throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire, so you’re never far from your next fix. On top of delightful doughnuts in varieties like apple cider, butternut, Bavarian cream, and even the local Boston cream, Honey Dew always has something for you no matter what you’re craving. Other options include an extensive list of muffins, pastries, and hot, iced, and frozen drinks. If you’re still hungry, you can even indulge in savory sandwiches, bagels, and other breakfast options. As New England’s largest locally owned doughnut and coffee chain, Honey Dew knows what it’s doing when it comes to doughnuts.

Donut King 

If you’d like to expand your doughnut journey into neighboring areas, check out Quincy’s Donut King. With classic coffee and doughnut options made right, Donut King is royalty for a reason. You can also enjoy other pastry classics like breakfast sandwiches designed to jumpstart your day.

Mike’s Donuts

Established in 1969, Mike’s Donuts is an institution for Boston and its surrounding areas. As longtime owners Bruce and Maria Weinograd explain, Mike’s doughnuts are hand-cut and honey-dipped from a secret receipe dating all the way back to the shop’s origins. You could do worse than grabbing a bag (or two) and tasting the fresh-baked goodness.

Since its opening, Mike’s has expanded its offerings into pastries, muffins, smoothies, sandwiches, salads, soups, coffees, and even ice cream. Whether you’re stopping by to grab a sandwich to fuel your day, or looking for casual lunch options, you’ve found it with Mike.

With rotating seasonal flavors and a menu that focuses on doughnuts at all times, you’re sure to smash your doughnut craving at KNEAD.

Country Kitchen Donuts

Country Kitchen Donuts is a New England Institution with a few locations in the Boston suburbs. Described as “old school” with white and red brick walls, a fireplace, and a sitting area, this country kitchen prides itself on being a community staple and a gathering place for locals. The doughnuts are as classic and enduring as the location, with plain and jelly-filled options sitting with your standard Boston cream.

If you’re hungry or would just like to sit a while and enjoy the atmosphere, you can opt for bagels, muffins, coffees, and other sweet treats. The spot’s newer Millis location also features bagel breakfast sandwiches and a few more inventive doughnut options, including cereal and candy flavors like Captain Crunch, Cinnamon Toast, Heath Bar, Oreo, and Fruity Pebbles.
