Where can you find Utah’s best donut?
Braden Thompson hoped to answer that question.
Thompson recently wrote a piece for Medium in which he sought the best doughnut in Utah. He released an early report last year in which he and a fellow writer visited nine different bakeries. Now, he added an extra 17 bakeries in hopes of finding the best sweet treat.
Thompson found that the store Donut Boy had the best variety, along with The Big O Doughnuts and Little Donuts. Dunford Bakers also offered a good variety, he said.
The best glazed doughnut can be found at Lehi Country Bakery, while the best filled ones are available at Donut Boy.
Overall, Lehi Country Bakery, Provo Bakery, Fresh Donut & Deli in South Salt Lake and Avenue Bakery in American Fork topped the list.
“Our goal was to create an in-depth reference guide of the best donuts in Utah,” Thompson wrote. “So don’t feel like you have to read the whole thing in one sitting (unless you love donuts as much as we do). Come back to it again and again to find new places to try or to see how your opinion compares to ours (again, hot takes welcome).”
