Donut or doughnut? No matter how you spell it, today is the day we celebrate these sugar-covered wheels of deliciousness—it’s National Donut Day!
Here is a list of must-try indulgent, cruelty-free donuts from across the nation. We even threw in a couple gluten-free options for those with allergies.
Beacon Doughnut Co.
Beacon Doughnuts are sold at the Wicker Park Farmers Market in Chicago on Sunday morning. Vegan options are available and the menu features new flavors each week. Some favorites include Boston Cream, Cookies n’ Cream and Samoa, but make sure you get to the market early, they sell out fast!
Beet Box Bakery
Beet Box Bakery is an all-vegan bakery that sells vegan and gluten-free donuts! Located in Denver, they serve these fresh-baked treats in drool-worthy flavors. Our pick is the Almond Vanilla, but the Blueberry Maple Granola is a winner as well.
Craft Donuts + Coffee
Need to grab a quick breakfast in the Chicago suburbs? Craft Donuts has mouthwatering vegan donuts, baked fresh every morning. Their menu is posted on social media, but some favorites include vegan yeast-raised Oreo, Cookie Butter, and classic Sugar + Salt.
This 100% vegan donuttery showcases their menu on Instagram. At Dottie’s Donuts, the options are ever-changing; Chocolate Pistachio, Lemon Poppy, Rice Crispy Treat, and more. Choose from a regular or filled donut and grab a hot coffee with a splash of almond milk for a quick breakfast.
