Boise is popular for a lot of things and great food is certainly one of them! If your favorite foods include the warmth and sweetness of a succulent donut, Boise does not disappoint. These six stars are hard to beat and worth finding the next time you are craving something hot from the oven!

1. Guru Donuts

It’s impossible to talk about donuts in downtown Boise without Guru Donuts being referenced. Guru has been touted as catering to the hipster, with vegan doughnuts served with not just coffee, but tea as well. Finally, we can feel like we’re being health conscious as we sink our teeth into a timeless treat.

2. DK Donuts

DK Donuts on W. State Street in Meridian is known for donuts made by real people and not machines. These donuts are old school, with an intentional lack of bells and whistles. Not too much like cake or so light you feel like you’re eating air, the great variety allows you to try something new every time you visit. Being family owned provides an invested atmosphere that brings customers back again and again.

3. Wildflour Bakery

Wildflour Bakery on E. 42nd Street in Garden City combines a modern feel and environment with a great, old-fashioned donut tradition. The pleasant surprise is that these donuts are baked and not fried, so you’ll enjoy a little less guilt when you order another. They continue to accommodate modern health trends by also offering organic and gluten-free variations!

4. Pastry Perfection

Sometimes we forget that bakeries are actually just giant donut shops! If they can make an outstanding cake, donuts are not going to be a problem. This is the case at Pastry Perfection on Glenwood Street in Garden City. Creativity is part of every creation and the staff loves their jobs and serving up the best donuts to everyone who comes through the doors.

5. Sweet Sensation Donuts

If you’re willing to wait in line, Sweet Sensation on W. Franklin Road in Meridian, delivers light and airy delicacies with attention to ingredients and just the right amount of sweetness. If you don’t want to overdo it, try their mini doughnuts with all the same ingredients and creativity in a slightly smaller serving.
