Where does one find good donuts in the GTA?

Growing up there used to be lots. Not anymore sadly....

    The Drake makes a great donut - favourite is the plain with chocolate icing. Found the cinnamon sugar gritty somehow.

    Sanremo Bakery on Royal York south of Gardiner makes fanastic fritters.

      Tried The Drake's donuts. I had the plain w. chocolate icing and also the glazed. I LOVED the glazed and thought the choco iced was pretty good too. For me the glazed one was the real ticket. Would mos def go back for that. God bless a fresh donut.

        Yes they are great! Havent tried the glazed. It was the sugar cinammon and coconut that came in a far second to the chocolate. I will try the glaze next time for sure - thanks!

        If they have the Drake style Oreos - don't be shy!

      Fresh sugar donuts filled with plum jam, I think, at Milbree Viking on Laird south of Eglinton. Very good. And, I second the beignets at Cajun Corner.

        Paczki at Granowska's on Roncesvalles are light and airy and delicious. Rosehip or cherry jam- or poppyseed and almond-filled. MMMMMMM!

          Try the sugar donuts at L'Espresso by Murcurio on bloor and St George. They make them from scratch.

            The beignets at Cajun Corner (weekends) are worth eating.

              Don't know of any in the GTA but if you are heading up to cottage country and driving through Uxbridge there is an old fashioned bakery on the main street that makes amazing REAL chocolate covered doughnuts and jelly doughnuts. They are fabulous and bring back memories!
