Celebrating National Donut Day

Where to get your sugar fix.



johnnys doughnutsNational Donut Day has arrived — wait, you haven’t heard of it? This holey holiday always falls on the first Friday in June. Make sure to go early, when the donuts are their warmest, freshest and still available. Many of the shops close in the early afternoon, or when they sell out. 


Johnny’s Doughnuts 

The best picks can sell out quick at Johnny’s Doughnuts, so get there early to grab an apple fritter, a crodough (croissant-doughnut hybrid) or one of the shop’s famous sprinkle-soaked donuts. They also carry wheat-free and vegan treats. Really, anything at Johnny’s is mmm, mmm good.

Donut Alley 

Any place called Donut Alley has got to be a winner. They offer a wide selection of cake, buttermilk and old fashioned donuts, plus glazed donuts shaped like feet. Sounds odd, but very popular with kids.

Sunrise Donuts

In the Bay Area, it’s not that uncommon to see shops that sell donuts and Chinese food under one roof, and this is one of those places. However, at this local favorite, the donuts are good, basic and reasonably priced.  
175 Belvedere St., San Rafael, 415.721.0146 

Golden Cream Donuts 

A basic donut shop that sells the basics plus unexpected pastries and treats. Reasonably priced. 
508 Alameda Del Prado, Novato, 415.883.6388 

Dunkin Donuts

Okay, it’s a bit of a drive (and technically outside of Marin), but if you are craving a Dunkin, head up to Petaluma where you can grab their world famous donuts and coffee. Even better, if you purchase a beverage on National Donut Day, your donut is free. It’s also one of the rare donut shops that stays open well into the evening.
