Another donut question

Has anyone found a shop in the Boston area that makes good sour cream donuts? I have the slightest bit of an addiction to the sour cream glazed donuts at Tim Horton's, but driving to Canada for donuts isn't really practical.

  1. I'm almost sure there is a Tim Hortons in Attleboro, MA

    1. There are Tim hortons in/near RI. They took over Bess Eatin several years ago. If you get to West Springfield there is a Donut Dip on rt 5 that makes amazing SC donuts.

        There's definitely one in Woonsocket.

      2. I read on Universal Hub a few weeks ago that Tim's is moving into the Boston metro area in the next few months.

          I hope this happens. I always go to Tim Hortons in Auburn ME. on my way to and from Rangeley ME. I like Tim's hot chocolate, coffee and donuts. When my brother was working in Providence RI. I had him go to Tim Hortons and buy a few cans of their hot chocolate and coffee. We have too many Dunkin Donut stores in MA. imho. I hope they open up several Tim Horton stores in the Boston area. Thanks for the good news.

            BFP, can you please post a link to the report that was in Universal Hub regarding Tim Hortons? Thanks

              Unfortunately, it looks like I misremembered the post: it stated that Tim's was going into NYC and had speculation that they were launching a Boston area assault: sorry for getting your hopes up.

              I do expect them to enter the city (or at least the burbs) pretty soon, though.

          2. Believe it or not, Stop & Shop has decent sour cream donuts, both plain and glazed. Obviously if you get there when they're first baked, they're best.

            1. It's not technically the Boston area but I know that Flemings on Cape Cod (Eastham, Orleans and one other town) makes excellent sour cream donuts. Not close but closer than Canada.
