Best Donuts in New England

I have been craving donuts for some odd reason. No, I am not pregnant. I would love to hear your take on the best of the best near Cape Cod or Worcester please?

Is Butlers still good in Westport? Never been but have been wanting to go...

  1. The best donuts are in western Massachusetts !! Donut Dip in West Springfield (right off 91 and the mass pike) for Sour Cream & Pumpkin and Adams Donuts in Greenfield for Maple Cream & Apple Pie.

    Why did you have to post this in the morning, now I;ve got to hit the road for donuts !

      Oh Donut Dip! ..Makes me miss New England. The best donut I can get around here is a stale one from 7-11.

        I had half a sour cream and half a pumpkin for breakfast this morning. A coworker stopped on his way to work this morning.
        Donut Dip is my favorite too

          I'm going to have to add my vote for the Donut Dip, as well. Love it.

          I've never been to Adam's Donuts in Greenfield but will definitely give it a try...

        2. I haven't been in about a year but Donut Star in North Grafton MA has very good donuts. Donut Dip is great. We stop whenever we are driving out of Mass on the Pike. Sometimes I even think about making up a reason to go to Springfield just so I can go to Donut Dip. I haven't been to Butlers yet. Many people like Allie's donuts in North Kingstown RI also get good reviews.

            Here is a link to a recent post on the Boston board with more donut discussion.

              Allie's in North Kingstown is killer. Their doughnut cakes are the most amazing things ever, and they can be so creative with them too!

          2. My favorites are at Donut Cafe in Worcester. Two locations: Shrewsbury St and Chandler St. Their fruit fillings are to die for and they use nutmeg in the glazed donut and coffee rolls.

            I do NOT care for Donut Star in N. Grafton. Their glazes are overly sugary and sweet, although my understanding is that their cake donuts are very good.

              I'm not a fan of glazed donuts for that very reason - always too sweet.

            2. Moulton's General Store on the Village Green in Amherst, NH has the best cinnamon donuts in the universe!

              1. I highly recommend Jardek's

                240 C Nashua Road
                Rt 4
                North Billerica, MA 01862
                (978) 667-6389

                Saturdays he makes apple cider donuts.
