Brazillian Gourmet in Cleveland Street. I love their soft and sugary plain doughnuts but they also ones filled with custard  jam and brazillian toffee

I'd say Crosstown Doughnuts with their signature Crème Brulée one. But the doughnut dessert treat at Jar Kitchen is also well worth a visit.

Crosstown Doughnuts everytime! Faves include Choc Truffle Ring and Summer Fruit Crumble! Always super fresh, the dough is really light and airy and the range of choice is great


BIRD in Shoreditch do the best doughnut in London hands down. The dough is soft and ever so slightly stodgy (in a good way) - there isn't another doughnut close to it. 

If we're talking the whole shebang (glaze, dough, flavours) then it has to be Crosstown Doughnuts - they offer such a great variety of flavours, without faulting on quality.

Peanut butter and jelly crodough at Timberyard; very good and bad all at the same time.
