5 Donut Shops You Need to Try in Vancouver!

Calling all sweet-teethed Vancouverites, here's a list just for you.

Doughnuts or donuts? Doesn't matter, they're one of the best classic desserts and pastries that satisfy your sweet cravings, perfect anytime, anywhere.

Whether you wanna pair it with a cup of coffee, have it as a snack after lunch, or scour some down for some late-night cravings, here's a list of donut shops in Vancouver that'll have your mouth watering for more.

Cartem's labels themselves as Vancouver's best donuts, which is a very bold statement, but they've got a case.

They've got three locations; Downtown, Mount Pleasant, and Kitsilano. They've got an awesome selection of everyday donuts, and speciality donuts, some that are offered at a limited time only.

They have some crazy but delicious combinations and flavours, like their Blueberry Mint, Pistachio, White Chocolate Berry, and so much more.

Craving donuts at like, I don't know, 2 a.m.?

Duffin's Donuts is a staple in Vancouver known for its late night options; they serve everything. Burgers, sandwiches, fried chicken, bubble tea, and their donuts.

They've got a freshly-baked selection, along with sale donuts that were previously baked (which are still perfectly good and just as delicious).

Lucky's doughnuts and their coffee is one of the best combos in all of Vancouver.

They've got three locations on Main Street, Thurlow, and Kitsilano.

Want to try some crazy flavours? Try their Maple Bacon Ring, Lemon Meringue Bismarck, or their famous old-fashioned selections. Pair it with one of their cold brews, and you've got one heck of a combination.

We've had the pleasure of having Lee's Donuts a TON this summer season, and for good reason.

Their Honey Dip is by far our favourite, and their most popular selection. This is a must-go any time you're spending a day at Granville Island!

Mello quietly opened as the new go-to spot with their can't-miss yellow storefront and beautifully-designed, aesthetic cafe interior.

While it looks good, their donuts are the main event. It opened early 2020, late 2019, serving Korean-style filled donuts with a plethora of flavours.
