Donuts have been around for what seems like forever, in every shape and size. Today, you can find almost every flavor combination or topping on donuts, from simple icing to your favorite cereal. If you’re not afraid of some morning travel, this Kansas donut trail is the one for you. Come treat your sweet tooth to this tasty trail!
Won't you join us on this journey to find donuts galore? Let's go!
1. Sunshine Bakery - 217 Center Ave. Oakley, Kansas
What better way to start off a great Kansas day than with a little sunshine? Donuts and amazing espresso drinks are the perfect way to start this trip.
2. Hometown Bakery - 215 N Main St., Wakeeney, Kansas
Next up is the Hometown Bakery where these buttermilk bars are my ultimate choice. Family owned bakeries really do taste the best.
3. Varsity Donuts - 704 N Manhattan Ave., Manhattan, Kansas
With donuts large and small, this bakery knows how to treat you right. Plus, they're open all day! 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. is when I like my donuts, how about you?
4. Yos Donuts - 7170 Renner Rd., Shawnee, Kansas
If you've never stopped in Shawnee before, it's a great time to. Yos donuts is a family owned shop that makes all your favorites, with new flavors popping up at random for you to enjoy. I can't wait!
5. Renee's Bakery - 2 N Washington Ave, Iola, Kansas
Renee's is a magical place that's perfectly fine for donuts, but I wouldn't leave without a raspberry cinnamon roll, if I were you. Grab a couple alongside your donut picks for an extra treat.
6. Cornerstone Bakery & Jasper - 100 W Rutledge, Yates Center, Kansas
Fresh made donuts are hard to pass up, and if they're from Cornerstone, then it's even harder. While you're here, grab some homemade bread to go!
7. Ike's Donut Shop - 909 N Summit St., Arkansas City, Kansas
Ike's is a local classic, and probably the best place in town where you can grab donuts alongside plenty of locals in the morning. Don't be afraid to park somewhere else and walk up, their service is quite fast.
8. Dough Co. Donuts - 1228 E 4th Ave., Hutchinson, Kansas
This amazing little shop really knows what they're doing with donuts. Their tiny little donut bites are my favorite, but iced with sprinkles are too pretty to pass up.
9. Mitchell's Bakery - 1110 Main St., Great Bend, Kansas
Mitchell's also makes a mean donut, but it's the icing choices that make them extra great. Their regular glazed sell out really quick, so head early or plan to grab a different kind when you arrive.
10. J&D's Donuts & Deli - 406 Grand Ave., Plains, Kansas
Kansas has plenty of Daylight Donuts outlets across the state, but J&D's is really setting the bar for hometown donuts. It may be a chain, but the shop itself is family-run just like we love. Plus, you can also grab a sandwich from the deli while you're here to cut all the sweetness!
