Mmm Doughnuts! How can you resist them?
Simply put, you can’t. So we’ve put together a list of where you can get your hands on the hole-y delights, topped with crazy toppings, filled with unusual sauces and sugared or iced to perfection.
Best part is, if it’s got a hole in it then it’s realistic to assume it has a big fat ZERO CALORIES, right? Let’s all just nod and say ‘yes’ on that one, okay.
So, without further ado, Brisbane’s Best Doughnuts!
1. Doughnut Time
You’ll never be short of crazy toppings and fillings at the sweet hole-in-the-wall establishment on Alfred St and 2nd location in Clayfield; Doughnut Time. The stores open early enough for a naughty breakfast and stay open late enough for an after-work pick me up (as long as they haven't sold out), dishing out flavour favourites including Salted Caramel, Maple Bacon, Butternut Pistachio and Nutella filled sugar-dusted doughnuts. They also serve milkshakes and have a roaming van that you can track down by following Doughnut Time on Facebook and Instagram.
2. Nodo Donuts
For the health conscious, but sweet tooth at heart (who is not a doughnut fan, come on!) there are wholesome baked goods available in Brisbane for you too! Nodo Donuts allow you to spoil yourself guilt free with premium and organic natural and gluten free ingredients. Get your Nodo Donuts stocked at numerous cafes around Brisbane for flavours similar to rhubarb and caramelised white chocolate, Matcha white chocolate, banana bread and passionfruit and coconut oil to name a few.
3. Doughnut Bar
Doughnuts are in the shape of a big wheel, so it only makes sense that another doughnut mobile has rolled into town; Doughnut Bar. Follow the bright coloured Kombi van for the handmade artisan doughnuts and croughnuts. How does Snickers, Nutella Cheesecake, Milo or Cookie Monster sound? If you prefer lollies to chocolate, their interesting Peachie O’s flavour is dipped in peach chocolate glazing and topped with Peachie O’s lollies – yummmo.
4. Divine Doughnuts
If you didn’t think a light and fluffy doughnut could be both sweet and delicious and made of all natural gourmet ingredients, you need to re-evaluate your view on the humble treat that is the doughnut. Divine Doughnuts believe in providing ‘honest doughnuts’ made with up to 20 per cent less oil than traditional doughnuts. You can find Divine Doughnuts signature range at local markets weekly, including traditional cinnamon doughnuts, gourmet dark chocolate doughnuts and jam with mixed berries doughnuts.

5. Flour & Chocolate
Did you know Flour & Chocolate also stock doughnuts? Oh my, yes they do! However, it’s only on Wednesdays and they sell fast. They have new flavours in store each week, with salted caramel, raspberry jam, and lemon curd as crowd favourites. Don’t worry if you miss out on Wednesday’s either, as Thursday is gonuts day – woohoo!
Not technically a doughnut in the sense of being round and with a big hole in the middle, but the traditional Spanish treat Churros have all the baked cinnamon goodness and then some. At Cowch you can order the baked churros sprinkles in cinnamon sugar, served with a hot shot of your chocolate choice and adding toppings or ice-cream! It’s also a licensed venue and can be a part of a Champagne Brunch deal on Saturday’s and Sunday’s from 10am to 2pm.
