Who doesn’t love a good donut? Here is a list of 5 must try donut shops in Denver.
5. Marty’s 47th Street Donuts4701 Peoria St
Denver, CO 80239
It is unfortunate that I like doughnuts so much but who doesn’t, right? Well if you are a doughnut lover or occasionally sneak one into your diet, you MUST try this place out. OMG! I found this place via yelp & personally I haven’t had a doughnut this good in a very long time. I bought three dozen of them for a business meeting. Even after a 10 minute drive back to the office, the bottom of the box was still warm so you knew they were fresh. Folks in the office kept asking where I got the donuts? Oh and the staff was wonderful, as well. I cannot wait to go back.
4. Waltons Donuts6603 Leetsdale Dr
Denver, CO 80224
This place was amazing! I had this puffy donut covered in a strawberry glaze was heaven on earth and I am surprised I didn’t eat 2 or 3 of them. When you think of strawberry glaze, you will probably think of that sugary, gooey filling that resides in stuffed donuts. Think again. The glaze was perfect. A little tart and just sweet enough to satisfy your sugar craving but not too much where it makes your stomach hurt. Get there early, the good ones go fast.
3. Glazed & Confuzed5301 Leetsdale Dr
Denver, CO 80246
Stopped into Glazed and Confuzed to support a local homegrown business! They were awesome! We had a dozen doughnuts, multiple flavors and they were gone in an instant! My personal favorite was the peaches and cream with fresh peaches and the samoa! They are a classic raised doughnut, so a slightly denser dough but packed with great flavor. The cake donuts and glazes were all so delish. Yes, they are a higher price point, but well worth it for the quality ingredients you can taste in the doughnut!! Their flavors rotate daily, and so far every flavor I tried has been great!
2. LaMar’s Donuts990 W 6th Ave
Denver, CO 80204
You can expect nothing but the best when you come to Lamar’s. I was “glazed and infused” trying the the pumpkin glazed donut and the Bavarian infused chocolate donut, both were delightfully delicious, not too sweet but a taste bud explosion! If looking for a sweet bite in the area, don’t miss out- you also have to try the apple fritter it is ridiculous!
1. Voodoo Doughnut1520 E Colfax Ave
Denver, CO 80218
These donuts live up to the hype! I’m a very skeptical person. When a place is over-hyped, super trendy, and the latest “must have”, I always go in with open eyes. These delicious donuts do not disappoint!! The donuts are very thick and “cake like”. They are not light and airy as some donuts ca be.
The frosting is spot on. The names are hilarious. The creativity is unmatched. The service is awesome. The guy at the counter was joyful and made waiting in line entertaining. I’m a believer!! Can’t wait to go back.
