Fancy Fox has the best donuts! I began following her on Instagram after seeing a segment on channel 4 news featuring her amazing creations. As yet, she has no brick and mortar location but you can ususally find her at the Toasty Farmer market on Saturdays. This week she had creme brûlée custard filled donuts. They were fluffy and lusciously full of decadent vanilla custard. Really, a must try!

Best donut I’ve ever had is found at Cohesive Coffee on Saturday mornings. Think Skytop Apple Cider donuts but more dense leaving you satisfied with just one donut. Seriously the best flavor and best all around.

Duck Donuts on Pelham needs to be added to this list! Make your own creation from a wide variety of frostings, drizzles and toppings. Warm, fresh and a slight crispness sets them apart. Super friendly service as well!
