Gourmet chefs and bakers have hitched their wagon to doughnuts – taking the once-simple breakfast item and ramping it up so even the most refined of foodies can’t resist. Always experimental and ahead of the latest food trends, Las Vegas bakeries have reinvented the doughnut at these five go-to spots around town – a surefire way to make the most important meal of the day just a little more unpredictable.
A favorite among locals, PinkBox has various locations around the valley all committed to breaking out of the traditional mold for the sweet morning treats. This shop offers true decadence with its variety of flavors, including S’more, Fat Elvis, chipotle caramel, PB & J, maple bacon bars, and strawberry shortcake. And new flavors are constantly making their way onto the menu; the specialty section even offers doughnuts topped with Lucky Charms, Fruit Loops, and Captain Crunch. Boxes are available for purchase online and the Summerlin location is open 24 hours a day.
Location: 7531 W Lake Mead Blvd.
Unlike PinkBox, O Face doesn’t offer a ton of options. The two-year-old shop has mastered a few flavors and sticks to what it does well. Lemon rosemary meringue with blueberry puree, bacon apple fritter, root beer float, and key lime are a few of the must-haves in this downtown Las Vegas shop. All fillings and coffee syrups are made fresh and in house, with vegan selections available.
Location: 124 S. 6th Street.
What’s even more trendy than a gourmet doughnut? Croissant doughnuts, which are available at Ace in flavors like blueberry crumble, maple bacon, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. One TripAdvisor reviewer said he was hooked on these “delicious treats filled with variety and flavor.” It isn’t just the eye-catching flavors that make this joint worth a stop, but the execution of classics like apple fritters – available in two different sizes.
Location: 9435 W. Tropicana Ave., Spring Valley.
Lovers of sweets belong at this Spring Valley shop, where sweet cereals and candies are common ingredients. Flavors rotate daily, but Donut Mania is always serving over 50 varieties of donuts and pastries made from scratch. You’ll find classic sugar twists, exotic gourmets smothered in bacon, turnovers, fritters and more. Flavors include “The King” (with a caramelized banana on top), “I Dream of Reese’s,” and “Peanut Butterfinger Cheesecake.”
Location: 4460 S Durango Dr.
While the classic glazed doughnuts at this spot are worth a try, it’s the fancy options that make it stand out from the pack. Break out of your comfort zone with an apple fritter, green tea glaze with toasted pistachios, maple with bacon, or one with M&M toppings. If you’re looking for dessert instead of breakfast, the red velvet with cream cheese is more reminiscent of a cupcake than the simple donut holes of yesteryear.
Location: 6545 S. Fort Apache Road.
