Donuts are our favorite way to start the morning. Well, besides coffee. But luckily donuts pair perfectly with coffee. In fact, we think they pair perfectly with just about anything. If you agree, check out these places in Vegas to indulge in every kind of donut imaginable from vegan to maple bacon.
Ronald’s Donuts, 4600 Spring Mountain Rd.
Local favorite Ronald’s, located in the Chinatown area, serves an array of donut flavors and toppings including sprinkles, chocolate, coconut and glazed. Be sure to try the very popular maple bars, as well as apple fritters, bear claws and much more. If you’re a vegan, this is the place you want to go to for donuts. Almost all of the non-cake varieties are vegan.
Pink Box Doughnuts, 10251 S. Eastern Ave.
Pink Box is another locals favorite. The shop sells classics like chocolate glazed, traditional and cake donuts as well as specialties like the maple bar, sweet potato cake, chocolate Coco Pebbles, lemon pie and pink snowball. You’ll also want to try the gourmet varieties such as the cookies n’ cream, campfire s’mores and the Fat Elvis, which of course features peanut butter and banana flavors.
Pawn Donut & Coffee, 725 S. Las Vegas Blvd.
Need a donut fix while you’re waiting in line to get into the Pawn Stars’ Gold and Silver Pawn Shop? Head right next door to Pawn Plaza where you’ll find shops and restaurants like Pawn Donut & Coffee. Daily flavors include sugar, glazed, maple bar, chocolate and banana crème. Specialty donuts come in flavors like maple bacon, rocky road, apple fritter, Boston cream, sprinkles and PB&J. There are also special featured limited-time donuts. Right now you can enjoy the “I Love You So Matcha” and the “Honey & Oates.”
Carlo’s Bakery at the Venetian
You know Cake Boss Buddy V knows a thing or two about making pastries. You’ll often find a line here but it’ll be worth the wait. Try Carlo’s signature donut – a vanilla donut filled with French cream and tossed in powdered sugar – or other varieties like strawberry frosted with sprinkles, cookies and cream, Boston cream, chocolate frosted, glazed or jelly donuts. The must-do here though is the cannoli donut. It’s filled with cannoli cream and topped with cinnamon glaze and pieces of cannoli shells.
Krispy Kreme at Excalibur or Circus Circus
This doughnut chain is famous for their original glazed doughnuts served hot and fresh from a recipe dating back to the 1930s. You can find them on the Strip at the Castle Walk Food Court at Excalibur and also at Circus Circus. Besides the original, take your pick of cake, kreme filled and chocolate iced varieties as well as special flavors like Oreo Cookies and Kreme, chocolate iced raspberry filled, glazed lemon filled and powdered with strawberry Kreme. They also do special seasonal donuts for holidays and can make special order donuts like basketball-shaped and decorated donuts for your upcoming college basketball parties.
Glaze Doughnuts, 6545 S. Fort Apache Rd.
Glaze Doughnuts serves handmade, fresh, soft and fluffy donuts. They like to experiment with new flavors so you never know what you might find. You can get classic cake donuts in flavors like blueberry, devil’s food and red velvet as well as glazed donuts, powdered and rainbow sprinkles. We love the unique donut varieties like Fruity Pebbles, green tea and pistachio, maple bacon and especially the Nutty Professor with Nutella, mixed nuts and chocolate syrup.
