There’s no better morning pick-me-up than a sweet and satisfying donut. Chicago's top brunch spots are always stellar, but sometimes you just want a quick bite to enjoy on the go. The city’s best donut shops are happy to oblige with a variety of treats. Visit Doughnut Vault for classics that never go out of style, like a buttermilk old fashioned, or head to Beacon Doughnuts for creative offerings that are constantly rotating. Fried dough is also represented in several forms, including churros, paczki and beignets. Make sure to get to these places early, though, unless you want to be left sad and empty handed because they often sell out quickly. And don’t forget to pair that donut with a cup of Joe from your favorite coffee shop. So check out our guide to the finest donut shops in Chicago and bring a box of delights to work to become everyone’s new bestie.
