Best donuts?

Any really good places to get donuts? No national chains. Looking for something more like a gourmet donut or something. We found a lot on our trip to Chicago last fall that opened for breakfast and stayed open late. Anything similar in Boston?

Well, the most popular donut in Boston is Dunkin Donuts - they are EVERYWHERE! ( the original is in Quincy, MA) I know you mention that you do not want a chain but it is pretty hard to avoid DD in Massachusetts or New England and now, all over the country!

The best donut (IMHO) is outside the city - Kane's Donuts in Saugus.

I've heard that Verna's on Mass Ave in Cambridge Is good.

Union Square Donuts in a landslide. Well worth the trip and you can also experience probably the biggest hidden gem neighborhood in the area, Union Square Somerville.

And, Union Square Donuts does both pop-up appearances and are regulars at some farmers' markets so you don't have to go to Union Square in Somerville to try their donuts.


Check the link above for details of where you can find them around the city while you are doing other things. I saw them at the Farmers' Market across from the North End on a Wednesday about a week ago.
