London’s finest doughnuts
BLUE’S KITCHEN, SHOREDITCH
The ultimate in indulgence, The Blues Kitchen are offering up deep fried Oreo doughnuts with a salted caramel sauce. Does it get any better than this? Definitely not!
The BK is also one of the many spots around London participating in raising money for charity this National Doughnut Week. Donations will be going to The Children’s Trust, the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury.

1235 DOUGHNUTS, Marylebone
These ingenious square doughnuts are made by Brad McDonald, the chef at Marylebone’s The Lockhart, and his wife Molly. They first started selling the tasty treats on Columbia Road market, but you can now get them from the restaurant too.
Find it: 22-24 Seymour Place, W1H 7NL
Crosstown Doughnuts, Soho
The guys over at Crosstown Doughnuts have some seriously good-looking doughy treats on their menu. Would you opt for a Chilli Chocolate, or maybe a Sea Salt Caramel and Banana, or even a Matcha tea flavoured doughnut? The options are endless!
For all of you Janes outside of London, you can order the beauties online. They also have gift vouchers available, which would be a great present idea for a doughnut fan!
Find it: 4 Broadwick St, London W1F 0DA
GLAZED AND CONFUSED, various locations
More than just an incredible name, the range of dense, doughy and rich doughnuts made by Glazed and Confused is pretty damn special.
Our personal highlights include rhubarb crumble and lemon curd. You’ll find them at varying cafés and coffee shops around London and there’s also free delivery in the Islington area.

If you’re looking for a doughnut pudding, this Hackney bar has the perfect one. They refer to them as ‘beignets’ but we all know it’s just your run-of-the-mill doughnut. Large ones served with dulce de leche sauce. Make sure you leave enough room, as the tasty pud is very filling.
Find it: 175 Mare Street, E8 3RH
