2017 Best Doughnuts

Union Square Donuts

Heather Schmidt’s airy, yeasty doughnuts, in gourmet-ified flavors such as sea-salted bourbon caramel and zingy raspberry-lime rickey, have turned her Somerville shop into a bona fide destination. And now, thanks to outposts in Coolidge Corner and at the Boston Public Market, it’s never been easier to get a taste of her confections. Multiple locations.
