Indianapolis is the Crossroads of America.  You may only pass through this city during a road trip.  However, on a road trip, you will get hungry at some point.  What is a better way to satisfy that hunger than with a donut?  But where should you go?  If you are ever passing through Indianapolis, here are some of the best places to get donuts.

1. The Donut Shop

The Donut Shop provides an amazingly delicious variety of donuts, with all of your staples and more fanciful donuts covered.  In addition to an incredible donut lineup, The Donut Shop also provides a strong breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu.

2. Jack's Donuts

The Peanut Butter Cup, Oreo, and Jelly Drop donuts are just a few examples of the amazing options at Jack’s Donuts.  If you want to have a cup of coffee with your donut, try one of their Jack’s brand coffees.  If you like your visit there (and we’re pretty sure you will), buy a whole bag of their coffee along with other cool merchandise like a mug or a t-shirt.

3. Square Donuts

Square Donuts is a family owned business that has been making square donuts for over 40 years.  They certainly do not cut any corners when it comes to their donuts, which are light, fluffy, and out of this world.  Their donuts are so good that they were voted the best yeast donut in Indianapolis.  Way to go, Square Donuts!

4. The Dancing Donut

If you like donuts that dance, then The Dancing Donut is the place for you.  With a numerous selection of donuts made fresh every morning, your tummy will leap in delight.  For those Footloose fans out there, try the Kevin Bacon donut.

5. General American Donut Company

For those of you who want to demonstrate American pride and spirit, pay a visit to the General American Donut Company.  Try one of their handcrafted donuts with a cup of their espresso.  For those of you who want to stay home, make a phone call and they will deliver donuts to your door.

6. Al's Donuts

Sometimes the hidden gems provide the biggest surprises.  This last donut shop is no exception.  If you take a little drive west on US route 40 towards Plainfield, about thirty minutes from Indianapolis, you will find a place called Al’s Donuts.  However, you have to get there early if you want to experience their whole selection of donuts.  Al’s opens at 2:30 am and closes at 9:30 am, and that is if they do not run out of donuts first.  It is a small shop but do not let that fool you.  Their donuts have a cult following.
