1. Royal Bake Shop (Centerville)
Located in the small town of Centerville (population: 879), the Royal Bake Shop is about as iconic and delicious as it comes, thanks to its huge variety of crullers, cinnamon rolls, bear claws, and old-fashioned donuts! (Psst... can we make a recommendation? Order the popular Zebra donut! You can thank us later.)
2. Flyboy Donuts (Sioux Falls)
If you hail from SoDak's largest city, you know that there is no better donut than the ones from Flyboy, which boasts 4 family-owned locations! Why choose Flyboy? It is thanks to their classic selection, as well as seasonal favorites and a variety of adorable letter shapes.
3. Daylight Donuts (Mitchell)
You know we couldn't have a list of the best donuts in SoDak without mentioning Daylight Donuts! Serving the community of Mitchell since the 1970s, Daylight Donuts has all of your favorite donuts, including fritters, chocolate cake (donuts), raised glazed, and maple bars.
4. Donut Shoppe (Huron)
Not only does the Donut Shoppe have sweet and beautiful creations like the pictured pastries but also some of the friendliest, down-home staff you will ever meet. We will see you there!
5. Wall Drug (Wall)
Arguably the most famous donut in the Mount Rushmore State comes from Wall Drug, AKA the world's most famous rest stop! Made fresh daily, the Wall Drug donuts melt-in-your-mouth and pair perfectly with a cup of $.5 coffee.
6. Jerry’s Cakes & Donuts (Rapid City)
What do Hilary Clinton and Rick Harrison from Pawn Stars have in common? They have both visited and LOVED this locally-owned gem! For more than 30 years, Jerry's has been THE place to get a sour cream cake donut and coffee. Yum!
