The Best Donut Shops in Austin
Calling all donut lovers! Who doesn’t enjoy having this fried dough delicacy in the morning or as a late-night snack after dinner? If you’re looking for the best, head to one of our favorite donut shops, listed below.
2406 Manor Rd., Suite B
Lola’s creates many special flavors in their East Austin kitchen, from Strawberry Cereal Milk to Peanut Butter Cookie Dough and many more in between. In addition to their OG indulgent brioche donuts, Lola’s also serves amazing vegan and gluten-free cake donuts for those with dietary restrictions.
4607 Bolm Rd.
We love the mochi donuts at Asian-American bakery OMG Squee. The Ube OG is bright purple and delicious, while the Thai Tea donut brings in flavors from the dessert shop’s tea drinks with boba. You’ll be shocked that everything served at this bakery is 100% gluten free!
1503 S 1st St.
An Austin original, Gourdough’s serves up their decadent sweet treats at their South 1st food trailer. Donut burgers, donut sandwiches and CBD-infused donuts round out a menu that also includes more traditional donut desserts, like the Miss Shortcake, with cream cheese icing and fresh strawberries, and the Black Out, with chocolate galore.
The Salty Donut
2000 S Congress Ave.
A newer donut destination in town, The Salty Donut crafts small-batch Brioche donuts with flavors that change with the season, as well as year-round favorites like the Brown Butter and Salt, which is nutty and rich, and the Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake, that tastes just like its namesake dessert.
Round Rock Donuts
106 W Liberty Ave.
Round Rock, TX
Maybe you’ve seen Round Rock Donuts’ massive Texas-sized donut, a 14-inch wide delicacy that’s become world famous, but all of their treats deserve to be praised. The distinct yellow-orange color of these yeast-risen donuts comes from fresh eggs and sets them apart from the rest. A true classic about 15 miles north of Austin, the store is so popular they sometimes make upwards of 500 dozen donuts per day.
75 1/2 Rainey St.
Little Lucy’s makes hot and fresh mini donuts every day. Choose your own adventure with their 24 coated sugar flavors and six different dipping sauces. Open on Rainey Street until 2 a.m., Little Lucy’s is your next late night destination.
5400 Brodie Ln.
Bougie’s elevates the humble donut with exciting flavors, served alongside drinks from their full-service espresso and coffee bar. Try the Cinnadough for a cinnamon roll-like treat or the Strawberry Homer, a cake-style donut with strawberry frosting — and don’t forget the rainbow sprinkles!
6100 E Riverside Dr. #103
With decorated donuts, kolaches, breakfast sandwiches and more, Master Donuts is your one-stop shop for an ideal morning. They also open at 5 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays and at 6 a.m. Sundays, perfect for you early birds!
212 E 6th St.
5408 Burnet Rd.
Voodoo Doughnut started in Portland and has taken many cities by storm, including Austin. Their 6th Street location is popular with the late night crowd, especially thanks to epic flavors like the Bacon Maple Bar, Strawberry Go-Tart and Voodoo Doll. Each one is sweet, creative and tastier than the next.
Angel Donuts and Treats
8300 North FM 620 Building A, Suite 200
Angel Donuts and Treats has been in business for 10 years, crafting both cake donuts and raised ring donuts, along with many other baked goods. We recommend the Mochi Donuts, also known as Pon-de-rings, made with vegan ingredients and fried in a plant-based shortening.
1509 S Lamar Blvd., Suite 200
South Lamar’s Combo Donuts is a casual, classic donut store that also serves croissants, fritters, tacos and more. Try their kolaches for a savory snack or mix and match your donuts in a box of dozen. Everything is delectable, affordable and fresh.
