I'm sure the majority of you have noticed the new craze that has swept over our city over the past year or so– DOUGHNUTS. Starting from bakeries, grocery stores and your occasional cafes, doughnuts have managed to create franchises dedicated solely to this treat. Over the past five to six months I have been on an avid journey to find the best doughnuts Brisbane can offer. Listed below are some of my personal favourites.
We will start with Doughnut Time as I believe there was recently a lot of craze and hype about this particular franchise. I mean, rightly so. Their doughnuts are exquisite and do not disappoint. Never will I regret $6 being spent on doughnuts topped with bacon. If you're looking for a recommendation: my personal favourite is The Red Wedding or as i like to refer to as red velvet heaven.
They had me at freshly baked gluten free doughnuts. Nodo doughnuts are guaranteed to win your hearts over. Among all the places I've listed, I have probably visited Nodo the most and can safely say that i have not found a single flavor that I have disliked. They can also serve up an excellent coffee which is always a plus,
One of the best places for mouth-watering desserts. If you live or are visiting the Newstead area, i would definitely recommend checking this place out if you haven't already. Treat yourself to one of their four doughnut topped flavours with one of their famous milkshakes. It is the perfect combo.
I've been looking for donuts that aren't so gimmicky. Simple flavours like dutch crumb, cream cheese, chocolate or cinnamon sugared would be so nice, but every place seems to do 'bacon popcorn chocolate bar gum drops' until it's not really what I would consider a traditional donut. It's more like a mountain of novelty sugary items.
They are thinking more about how it looks on instagram rather than if it tastes good with a cup of coffee. If I wanted cake or candy, I'd just go get cake or candy.
Hello, I'm American and I have strong feelings about donuts.
