Whether you spell it donuts or doughnuts, they’re still scrumptious, and we know the best spots to hit.
THE DOUGHNUT VAULT
Here at The Doughnut Vault, fresh is the order of the day. They make all of their doughnuts in the morning, and once they’re sold out, they close up shop until tomorrow. Get here early—this hole-in-the-wall shop typically has a line out the door, but don’t let that intimidate you. The wait is absolutely worth it, as they have a rotating list of daily specials, as well as some favorites that have found permanent residence on their menu.
With unique flavors and a local feel, The Doughnut Vault is hands-down one of the best doughnut joints in Chicago.
