Instagram: @gourdoughspublichouseThe little food trailer that could, this Austin restaurant may have come from humble beginnings, but now with two booming food trucks and two brick and mortar locations, Gourdough’s is taking the Texas donut scene by storm. Gourdough’s Instagram feed is flooded with mouth-watering menu favorites like Fat Elvis (grilled bananas and bacon with peanut butter icing and honey) and Flying Pig (bacon with maple syrup icing) all layered in generous helpings of toppings. Is there a donut buried under all the strawberries, banana chunks, whipped cream and chocolate? Guess you’ll have to eat your way through one to find out. Better test a few just to be sure.
Glam Doll Donuts
Instagram: @glamdolldonutsPretty and pink with a hint of retro, rocker chic, Glam Doll is an Instagram dream. The store’s girly decor is complete with vintage fashion magazines, colorful artwork and even a photo booth. And their donuts are equally as stylish. But don’t be fooled by the hot pink glaze and rainbow sprinkles, these donuts are as bold as they are beautiful. The Pinup Girl: an apple fritter laced with bourbon and topped with bacon (optional), the Chart Topper with peanut butter and Sriracha, and how about a fiery Bombshell made with spiced Mexican chocolate and cayenne pecans.
Instagram: @voodoodoughnutFrom the moment you visit Voodoo’s Instagram page, you’ll be put under their sugar-infused spell. This Portland shop’s feed is filled with detailed, artistic donuts, including colorful, glazy tributes to late musicians and entertainers. But it’s their cheeky concoctions that really make Voodoo stand out. From chocolate covered Cock-N-Balls to bloody-stake-wielding donuts, pentagrams, and stoner-themed sweets, nothing is taboo at Voodoo.
Instagram: @sidecardoughnutsThis upscale donut shop in California is insta-famous for its fancy fried confections and unique flavorings like huckleberry (Oregon huckleberry cake donut with huckleberry glaze) and Saigon cinnamon crumb (Saigon cinnamon cake donut topped with sweet glaze and a house made cinnamon crumble). Everything is made from the freshest and finest ingredients, fried in small batches on the hour. Plus there’s also a new gluten-free flavor to look forward to every week.
Instagram: @doughdoughnutsThe donuts here are big and beautiful and easily among New York’s best. I dare you to try to resist a donut as big as your face. And the variety of fresh flavor options do not disappoint. The bright pink hibiscus needs no filter, the Nutella donut is to die for and the milkshake topped with Cafe au Lait donut will render you speechless. We prefer to let our fingers do the talking anyways—#omfg #foodgasm.
