9 Portland Doughnuts We Love

Everything you need to make the most important meal of the day delicious.

Unlike San Francisco or Chicago, Portland is not one of the great doughnut towns. Oh, we certainly boast some serious doughnut fame, courtesy of the garish Voodoo Doughnuts, but here's the ugly truth of the matter: Voodoo is for tourists.

That said, Voodoo's doughnuts are fine for what they are, but anyone who wants a truly delicious doughnut in Portland that isn't dusted in Tang or speckled with Cap'n Crunch needs to do a little exploring. And lucky you, we've done the legwork for you. These aren't the only great doughnuts Bridgetown has to offer, but they are easily our favorites.

Click on the slideshow and we'll take you on a journey through a regular rogues' gallery of delectable round treats worth every empty calorie.
