So what if we overslept and left the house with half our eye makeup on and two different shoes? We have a secret weapon for making our overbearing boss forget that we were running late: doughnuts. Here, the six best doughnut shops in town.


Hypnotic Donuts

The East Dallas spot specializes in creative fried goodies like the Evil Elvis (peanut butter, bacon, banana and honey) and the Peace'statio (brown-butter glaze and pistachios).

9007 Garland Rd.; 214-668-6999 or

Mustang Donuts

Partly responsible for adding inches to the waistlines of SMU freshmen, the Hillcrest staple offers a classic, no-fuss selection of doughnuts, holes, twists and crullers. Pro tip: Make sure you have cash, because credit cards are not accepted. 

6601 Hillcrest Ave., Suite D; 214-363-4878

Escape Hatch Dallas

Top Pot Doughnuts

Fact: These treats contain zero grams of trans fats. So don't feel bad about indulging in a few lightly glazed cake ones, OK?

2937 Greenville Ave.; 214-828-8036 or


Sunrise Donuts

Sunrise opens early (5 a.m., people!) and closes at noon. When you get there, take a box to go (yes, they keep) because you're going to want seconds--and thirds--of these traditional confections.

2615 Oak Lawn Ave., #107; 214-522-4977


Glazed Donut Works

Consider Glazed to be the hipster of the doughnut world. Located in Deep Ellum, this bakery partners with different beer emporiums (Luck, Peticolas Brewing, Community Beer) for beer and doughnut pairing brunches. 

2644 Elm St.; 214-741-2275 or

Mark Davis

Yummy Donuts

This is the Park Cities equivalent to East Dallas’s Hypnotic--but a bit more family-friendly. The doughnuts incorporate everything from Fruity Pebbles to Oreos and are fun for both kids and kids at heart.

4355 Lovers Lane; 214-520-7680
