2020 Best Doughnuts

Mass Hole Donuts

Launched as a pop-up before moving into a brick-and-mortar shop last year, this doughnut maker seamlessly adapted once again during the pandemic, offering special deals for healthcare workers and delivering delicacies to doorsteps by the dozen. The cake and brioche confections arrive bearing Bay State–inspired names such as “New-berry Street” (gooey Nutella and blackberry) and “Sumner Breeze” (a strawberry-cream-filled, pineapple-glazed dream) that make it hard to pick just one. Thanks to their adorable, bite-size nature, you never have to.
