Best of Boston

2015 Best Doughnuts

Union Square Donuts

Card-carrying Bostonians that we are, we couldn’t really get behind the whole Boston-cream doughnut thing—until we tried the version at Union Square Donuts, with its thick layer of dark ganache frosting and custardy vanilla-laced center. The shop also specializes in unusual flavors like sea-salted bourbon caramel, PB & J, even pizza (hey, it works).
