Blue Star Donuts (Portland, OR)

I’d imagine that, when one visits Portland, they're told to check out Voodoo Doughnuts. While I don’t disagree that Voodoo is worth checking out (once, for kicks), Blue Star Donuts is the better of the two, possibly offering the best doughnuts I’ve ever had. The dough is light and airy, but the doughnuts are still substantial.

And flavorful! Suggesting that the flavors are more complex or adult than Voodoo doesn’t mean that they’re less fun/playful, but rather less gimmicky. Cereal and cookies aren’t necessary here, as the flavors truly speak for themselves.

I’ll have another Meyer Lemon Lime, please.

You'll only receive email when they publish something new.
