Doughnuts, we ❤️ you.

Pictures of the sweet treat pop up in our Instagram feeds—some are glazed, others filled, still others cake like, some even adorably  mini—we double tap on them all. Now, it’s time to put down the phone and go on an in-real-life doughnut crawl. We put together a list of the Long Island doughnut spots you need to visit. Let’s eat. 

Doughology

Stop and gape at the doughnut-making machine and then let the Doughology crew help you create the doughnut of your dreams by picking your favorite dip and three toppings. Or order one of their specialities such as the Fruity Pebble or the Nutella Chocolate Crunch.

House of Donuts

Hicksville’s House of Donuts knows doughnuts. They’ve been churning them out since 1943. Try not to stuff the entire blueberry one in your mouth at once. 

95 Broadway B, Hicksville; 516-433-4606

East Main & Main

Warning: It’s easy to become a regular at East Main & Main. The doughnut offerings change monthly and you’ll find yourself coming back for your favorites. One month that might be the Sail Away Salted Caramel, the next month it might be the Wildflower Honey Glaze or the Lemon Drop.

Fairview Farm at Mecox

As much as we love summer on Long Island, every August we find ourselves counting down until the arrival of apple cider doughnut season. Fairview Farm at Mecox has some of our favorites.

Dreesen’s Famous Donuts

For a classic Long Island cake doughnut nothing beats Dreesen’s. The DeSanti family started making the sweet treat back in the 1950s and makes thousands of doughnuts each year. Choose between plain, powdered sugar and cinnamon.

North Fork Doughnut Co.

Sunday called. She wants you to meet her at North Fork Doughnut Co., for a black and blueberry and buttercream doughnut or maybe a Holy Cannoli doughnut. It’s the perfect way to beat the Sunday scaries.

Grindstone

As much as we love cake doughnuts (and we really, really do) sometimes you just need something different. Enter the brioche-style doughnuts at Sag Harbor’s Grindstone. Made with flour from Amber Waves Farm in Amagansett, these doughnuts are light, airy and utterly whimsical. The lemon poppyseed is one of our favorites.
