Good news, folks! You’ve got a pretty good reason to hit up your favorite donut joint! National Donut Day is Friday, June 3 and it’d be a crime not to join in on the sugary action. Click through our album to discover the donut hotspots that you and your sidekick need to sink your teeth into on National Donut Day — or really any day!

For a South Side Institution: Old Fashioned Donuts

Our Fave: Apple Fritter

Why We’re Sweet on It: When you see the mammoth size and taste it hot from the fryer, you’ll know it’s worth every penny — and then some.

The Digs: Humble and unassuming, this 40+-year-old hole-in-the-wall doesn’t boast the slick décor others do. What it does have is a great story, and the original owner rolling and stamping out dough all day long.

Perks: All other donuts, besides the Texas glazed, are less than a dollar, so stock up on other favorites like coconut, caramel and pineapple.
