Donuts are good for the soul. These perfect circles of happiness deliver a boost of sugar, put smiles on faces and act as a pick-you-up whether enjoyed with morning coffee, afternoon tea or as dessert treats. Tuck into traditional donuts filled with jam and coated in sugar or pick from donuts glazed, iced and topped to suit every taste. In fact, they’re great conversation starters whether you’re in the bakery queue or in the office. Simply ask someone, ‘What’s your favourite donut topping?’ and the conversation is off! If you crave these delicious treats we’ve done the hard work for you and picked the top five restaurants delivering donuts in SG.
Since the first Dunkin Donuts bakery was opened in the USA in 1955, the chain has gone from strength to strength with outlets across the globe including several in Singapore. Most ‘Dunkin’ donuts come with a hole in the middle, perfect for holding while you dunk them in your coffee. You can see where the name comes from! Donut purists will pick classic sugar-raised and cinnamon-dusted circles or custard and jam-filled rings. Or, you can go more way-out with Strawberry Frost, Cookies and Cream or Choco Butternut donuts. Feeling generous? Treat colleagues to a box of assorted flavours.
Krispy Kreme has been around for nearly 80 years so it must be getting something right. Their signature donuts in classic flavours are available all year round while seasonal additions to the donut menu are known for their over-the-top flavours and toppings. In our opinion, a Krispy Kreme glazed donut is a classic that never dates and is just perfect whether you enjoy it with a cup of coffee or a pot of afternoon tea.
Do you think donuts (or doughnuts) should always be sweet? Then think again. Doughnut Shack has made a name for itself with its bold decision to make them savoury! Cereal Popcorn Chicken, Chili Crab and Bonito Flakes are just some of the savoury flavours on the menu. If savoury donuts are a step too far, they also prepare everybody’s favourites – Vanilla Glaze, Cinnamon Sugar, Salted Caramel and Milo Oreo Crunch.
J.CO Donuts & Coffee
Also among the top five restaurants delivering donuts in SG is J.CO Donuts & Coffee. Originating in Indonesia, its melt-in-the-mouth flavours range from classic chocolate-glazed and jam-filled donuts to more out-there Blackforest, Choco Caviar Chocolate, Heaven Berry and the cleverly named Tira Miss U!
Baker & Cook
The popular donut bakery, Baker & Cook, is co-owned by Dean Brettschneider, a New Zealand celebrity chef. He’s been baking gourmet donuts for more than 25 years, so is something of an expert when it comes to texture and flavour. Among our favourites are donuts filled with tangy lemon curd or ring donuts glazed with salted caramel. Truly yummy!
