Sometimes, you just wake up knowing exactly what you need: the best doughnuts in Miami. God bless the acai bowl and whatever else you want to shove in a healthy smoothie but can anything really replace the guilty pleasure of a doughnut? No, my friends. In Miami, we’ve got plenty of them. Doughnuts have become trendy lately, built as much for Instagram as for taste buds. We have some of those but our best balance visual appeal with quality and taste. The result is magic. While the afternoon is for the best happy hour deals in Miami and the late night calls for Miami’s best drunk food, Saturday mornings belong to our beloved doughnut. And these are our favorite ones in the city.

The Salty Donut

What is it? Miami's best doughnuts served in a quaint Wynwood shop. They also earn points for creativity with rotating creations that are rarely anything but delicious. Prepare for a line out the door (but it’s worth the wait).

Velvet Crème

What is it? A revived Little Havana shop that just reopened after a delicious run that lasted for 50 years. We couldn’t be happier to have them back. Classic doughnuts, hot coffee—if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

What is it? A neighborhood spot focusing on the simple things—a perfect glaze, fluffy dough and sweet toppings. It makes the intimidating drive to west Kendall all the more tempting too.

Bunnie Cakes

What is it? An adorable local vegan bakery, dishing out sweets that will fool those used to more decadent offerings. Cupcakes are normally the go-to here but don’t sleep on the mini-doughnuts.

Dandee Donuts Factory

What is it? An old-school doughnut joint that couldn’t care less about your Instagram account. The closest location to Miami is in Hollywood, but we heartily recommend visiting the original 24-hour Pompano outpost at 4am for some, shall we say, interesting people-watching.

What is it? Do we really need to tell you about Krispy Kreme? Really? Fine. It’s a national chain serving up some of the tastiest guilty pleasures you’ll find in a drive-through (and this is the only Miami location). If it’s your first time, ask for the paper hat.
