Portland's Standout Doughnut Shops

Let the doughnut wars begin, from Voodoo to vegan

View as Map
Delicious Donuts
| Delicious Donuts/Official

Doughnuts are Portland’s most divisive food. “Voodoo’s for tourists,” say some, trading the hour-long wait at the notorious pink shop for a 30-minute wait at Blue Star. “Blue Star’s for hipsters,” say others, who roll their eyes at anyone willing to pay $3 or more for fried dough. Those looking for bougie brioche with passionfruit glaze or a plain-old maple bar can find plenty of options below.

Note that, although there are plenty of bakeries and cafes that offer doughnuts in addition to other baked goods, this list focuses on bakeries that specialize solely on doughnuts. Instagram pop-ups serving exciting doughnuts from around the world, from Heyday’s mochi doughnuts to Popiół’s pączki, are worth a perusal when considering Portland’s finest doughnut options, as well. Bakeries on this map are not ranked, but rather listed geographically.

A number of Portland restaurants have resumed onsite service. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the Oregon Health Authority’s COVID update page. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.

1. Donut Palace

Copy Link
3164 NW 185th Ave
Portland, OR 97229
(503) 690-9410
Visit Website

This Tanasbourne doughnut shop is beloved by its neighbors, thanks to its doughnuts’ deep color from a longer fry in shortening. That means these doughnuts have a nice touch of crispness that gives way to a light, soft crumb. The shop serves vegan doughnuts on Saturdays, with curbside pickup available for those who call ahead.

2. Sesame Donuts

Copy Link
6990 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy
Portland, OR 97225
(503) 297-8175
Visit Website

Sesame Donuts has multiple doughnut counters throughout the greater Portland area, making it the most commuter-accessible on this list. The original location on the Beaverton-Hillsdale

Highway is a good choice for people on the west side, as it’s open 24 hours, but the downtown shop is still open, as well. The shop’s doughnuts are reminiscent of Dunkin Donuts, but better — expect a lighter, fresher dough and more care given to glazes and toppings.

3. Fills Lake Grove

Copy Link
3955 Mercantile Dr
Lake Oswego, OR 97035
(503) 305-8347
Visit Website

Portland’s first Berliner-style doughnut shop has taken the city by storm. While the original location, downtown in the original Blue Star Donuts shop, is temporarily closed, Fills has already expanded into the southern suburb of Lake Oswego, adding burgers and soft serve to its menu. Fills serves soft sourdough brioche doughnuts stuffed with various fillings, such as marionberry cheesecake, pimento cheese, and Famous Grouse butterscotch cream. The shop is open for walk-ins.

4. Heavenly Donuts

Copy Link
1915 N Lombard St
Portland, OR 97217
(503) 283-4141

A chain with locations along the West Coast, Heavenly Donuts is the casual shop busting out glazed doughnuts most similar in taste and flavor to Krispy Kreme’s: super fluffy, with a touch of grease and the ideal coating of sugar. The shop also has an impressive array of flavored fritters, long johns, and doughnut holes, making this an optimal place to grab a variety box for a family at home.

5. NOLA Doughnuts

Copy Link
110 NW 10th Ave
Portland, OR 97209
(503) 895-6350
Visit Website

Unlike other doughnuts on this list, NOLA makes its doughnuts from laminated dough (the same kind used for croissants and puff pastry danishes), resulting in flaky donuts with a crisp, craggy texture for sugar to comfortably settle in. They also make beignets and more standard yeast-raised doughnuts. All but the laminated doughnuts (La’ssants) are available for preorder online.

6. Coco Donuts

Copy Link
33 N Skidmore St
Portland, OR 97217
(971) 279-4858
Visit Website

Because he’s using an old family recipe, Coco’s Ian Christopher doesn’t rely on gimmicky toppings. Instead, he leans hard on the classics: glazeds, twists, and jellies, served out of a shop with serious Portland coffee house vibes. Visitors having trouble deciding should ask for Coco’s signature doughnut, a raised chocolate glazed topped with Coco’s own house-roasted chocolate-covered coffee beans and a dusting of cacao. Another bonus: Coco is one of the only places that regularly serves springy mochi doughnuts, as opposed to pop-ups like Heyday with rotating locations. Orders can be placed online or at any of Coco Donuts’ five open counters in the Portland area; Coco also offers delivery through Grubhub and P-Town Couriers.

7. Delicious Donuts

Copy Link
12 SE Grand Ave
Portland, OR 97214
(503) 233-1833
Visit Website

Because of its central location on SE Grand, the cheerfully blue Delicious Donuts gets plenty of traffic and is likely the shop with the freshest fried doughnuts. The parking lot can get cramped and crowded with folks grabbing doughnuts on their way to work, but it’s still worth a stop for fluffy maple bars. Pro tip: Delicious Donuts does take reservations for particular pastries by phone, for those who want to reserve a peanut maple cake doughnut.

8. Voodoo Doughnut - Davis

Copy Link
1501 NE Davis St
Portland, OR 97232
(503) 235-2666
Visit Website

Voodoo Doughnut’s second Portland location has ample parking and far shorter lines than the downtown location, making it a good choice for Voodoo visitors wishing to avoid a commotion. The eastside shops boasts all the same flavors that made Voodoo Doughnuts famous, like maple bacon, “Old Dirty Bastard,” and the “maple blazer blunt.” Orders can be placed online or in person.

9. Angel's Donuts & Ice Cream

Copy Link
2805 NE Alberta St
Portland, OR 97211
(503) 284-4510
Visit Website

Angel’s has been an Alberta standby for years, with its ice cream counter and assortment of craggly and often frosted treats. Some of the doughnuts here land on the dense side, but what Angel’s does offer is a number of fritters that almost lean toward a moist cake, saturated with syrups or jams. The crisp crullers, often topped with a shimmering glaze, are worth an order, too. Order doughnuts by walking in, or for delivery.

10. Blue Star Donuts

Copy Link
3325 SE Division St Suite 1
Portland, OR 97202
(503) 477-9635
Visit Website

Blue Star Donuts is a culinarily-minded doughnut chain in Portland — in shops that are bright, airy, and modern, Blue Star crafts brioche-based doughnuts topped and filled with ingredients more commonly found in a high-end pastry chef’s kitchen. Although the doughnuts are much pricier than most and have a heavier, denser crumb than a traditional raised doughnut, it’s worth the occasional stop to indulge in fancy varieties like Valrhona chocolate, passionfruit and cacao nib, and blueberry bourbon. Several locations have closed since the start of the pandemic, but the remaining ones take pre-orders online and serve walk-ins as well.

11. Doe Donuts

Copy Link
4110 NE Sandy Blvd
Portland, OR 97212
(503) 333-4404
Visit Website

In a shiny new location in the Hollywood District, Doe Donuts is the vegan answer to both Blue Star and Voodoo. Doughnut flavors are on the more creative side, with flavors like pink lemonade, taro, and french toast. Although the doughnuts are on the pricier end of the spectrum, Doe makes all its ingredients in-house and donates to various local charities each month. Doughnuts can be ordered at the store or through Postmates and Doordash.

12. Pip's Original

Copy Link
4759 NE Fremont St
Portland, OR 97213

Neighborhood coffee and chai shop Pip’s Original hawks fresh-to-order mini doughnuts reminiscent of the state fair. The menu is small and mighty, with only a handful of toppings and coatings to choose from. Pip’s is also offering to-go cups of its house-made chai concentrate, which comes in several flavors using different blends of teas, spices, and herbs. Pip’s does not offer online ordering or delivery.

13. Donut Queen

5842 E Burnside St
Portland, OR 97215
(619) 806-7265
Visit Website

This east side doughnut shop knows its way around a fry, with hazelnut-brown rings topped with colorful glazes and sprinkles.

14. Annie's Donut Shop

Copy Link
3449 NE 72nd Ave
Portland, OR 97213
(503) 284-2752

Annie’s is a cult favorite among Portland’s old-school doughnut purists, with a ‘50s-nostalgic interior and a case filled with everything from the quintessential old fashioneds to devil’s food cake doughnuts. The pale blonde fry at Annie’s makes for a light doughnut, which highlights the not-too-sweet glazes and toppings. It’s open for walk-ins.

15. Donut World
