The Best Doughnuts in Melbourne

Doughboys Doughnuts MelbourneI can honestly say that Melbourne has it’s fair share of delicious doughnuts that go well beyond the quality of Krispy Kreme. In Melbourne, you will find an abundance of artisan and hand forged doughnuts with real passion behind them and extensive research into flavours.

I have spent the few month ‘testing’ various doughnut venues around Melbourne and narrowed it down to my favourite picks to give you The Best Doughnuts in Melbourne. Mmmmmmm Doughnuts….

Hand forged doughnuts that go well beyond the classic doughnuts. The doughnuts are freshly glazed in front of your eyes and include flavours peanut butter and key lime pie.

Bistro Morgan Doughnuts are well known for their flavoured syringes, which you can inject in your doughnut for extra flavour.

Probably one of the most well known Doughnut venues is Doughnut Time. Starting in Brisbane Doughnut Time has spread out to more than 20 locations across Australia. Doughnut time menu is constantly expanding and also includes vegan doughnuts. Doughnut Time is not my favourite on this list but it by far has the most locations and also a loyalty program where every ninth doughnut is free.

Donut Shop Coffee & Donuts

🍩  Donut Shop Coffee & Donuts

130 Gertrude St
Fitzroy, 3065
$4-5 each

Donut Shop Coffee & Donuts is a small hole in the wall kinda venue, fitting no more than eight people. They stock anything from classic cinnamon to a Pina Colada Brulee flavour. A user on yelp described these doughnuts like “eating a cloud” and I can’t think of any better description – these doughnuts are that fluffy and sweet, that you want to have just one too many. You can wash your doughnut down with coffee, iced coffee, ginger beer or cola.
