San Diego-based Donut Bar opened its first Scottsdale location late last year and it couldn’t be a better fit for the Valley’s dessert scene. Not only does it offer up incredible and unexpected flavors like Mexican Hot Chocolate and Creme Brulee as well as vegan options, but it also has an actual bar — because what goes better with donuts than booze?
While we’re down to just one Arizona Fractured Prune location, it’s still more than worth the trip, because where else can you create your own completely customized donut? There’s an option for every donut connoisseur with 19 glazes like key lime and maple as well as 13 unique toppings like crumbled bacon or graham crackers.
If you’re looking for variety, Hurts Donuts is the donut shop for you. Not only are their soft, oversized donuts delicious, but there are also more than 70 options, so you’ll never get bored of the flavors which include cosmic brownie, fruity pebbles and cotton candy. As an added bonus, they’re open 24 hours a day, every day.
There are dozens of Bosa Donuts around the state, and for good reason. They have mastered the classic glazed donut — plus you can pick one up nearly any time of day and at their drive-thru locations, you don’t even have to leave your car. If you’re feeling adventurous, their chocolate cake donuts and apple-fritters are top notch too.
The Local Donut
The Local Donut has perfected donut making — from the traditional red velvet and classic Boston cream pie to the more adventurous flavors like maple bacon, PB&J and peach pie. While every aspect of these donuts is fantastic, it’s the Instagram-worthy toppings that take these to the next level.
