The city is a worthy destination for delicious deep-fried dough thanks to celebrity shop Voodoo Doughnut, but local rival Blue Star has a shorter line (and, some would say, better donuts). Regardless of what shop you find yourself at, donuts should be on the top of your list of things to do in Portland. In fact, go ahead and ignore the other restaurants in Portland and fulfill every meal with a sweet or savory pastry. The best donuts in Portland include flavors like traditional maple bar, Cointreau Crème Brûlée and brioche with passionfruit glaze—this city has it all.
