Knead Doughnuts has three locations in Providence for a good reason. They make delicious, gourmet donuts with a soft, fluffy interior. Flavors include cinnamon roll, passion fruit, brown butter pecan, and cranberry corn crumble.
They mix things up, too. Besides classis options, you can also sample daily vegan and flourless donuts. If you want to decorate your own, buy one of their decorating kits which comes with 10 unglazed brioche donuts.

PVDonuts are fresh-made every day. They offer brioche, old fashioned classics, cake donuts, crullers, fritters, coffee bread, and vegan and flourless options.

McDaffa’s Doughnut Cakes
691 Main St.
Technically, McDaffa’s doesn’t make donuts. They make donut cakes. However, these are just a bigger version of a beloved treat, so we had to include them. Plus, they make a box of minis, so that’s pretty much donuts anyway.
All their products are homemade using fresh ingredients. You can either choose from one of their standard offerings, decorate your own, or buy a seasonal donut cake for a special occasion.
