Usually open from early in the morning until late in the evening (unless it’s a Sunday), this Chatham institution specialises in pillowy pastries that are as sweet as they look. If it's your first time, go for a box of the original glazed yeast donuts, which practically melt in your mouth. The best part? Unlike costly downtown shops, Dat Donut keeps its prices low; one donut will run you a buck and change. If you are feeling especially hungry or have a big sweet tooth, Dat also has you covered with their tasty “Big Dat Donut” that costs less than $4.
