The Best Plant-Based Donuts in the US

Jun 6, 2019 · 3 min read

To do or do-nut, that is the question. Not really, the answer to doughnuts is always yes. It’s no wonder there’s an entire day (June 7th) to celebrate this classic breakfast /dessert of pillowy perfection — the ideal vehicle for sweet toppings from sprinkles to [plant-based] bacon. I’ve waited in line with my dad and brother at Krispy Kreme for hours as a kid to try their coveted glaze donuts, brought boxes of donuts into the office to win over clients, and found myself waking up on most Sundays craving these magical creations.

If you’re looking for the best plant-based donuts, look no further. We’ve compiled a list from our City Leaders of the best donuts in the United States so you can celebrate #NationalDoughnutDay today and every day!
