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 Fun, Old-Time-y Vibe: Stan’s Donuts
Our Fave: Nutella Banana Pocket
Why We’re Sweet on It: It’s a hefty square that packs Nutella and banana slices in a delicately crunchy shell — it’s like the deep-dish donut, and therefore a Chicago sweetheart. If you’re a cookie butter fan, try the Biscoff pocket instead.
The Digs: From the decorative KitchenAid stand mixers on the wall to the retro floor tiles, the place feels like a cozy old soda shop.
Perks: If the 30+ flavors aren’t enough, you can also get gelato, Goose Island root beer, cream soda, an almond milk latte or Intelligentsia teas. Follow on Facebook so as not to miss the annual kids event where your pastry chef-in-training decorates and brings home six mini donuts.
