If you like the chase, add this hard-to-get shop to your list. The Doughnut Vault makes its donuts in small batches to preserve quality and stays open only until it sells out, which doesn’t take long, so get there early and expect a line. Once you’re in, get the Glazed, Buttermilk Old Fashioned or one of the daily specials. Along with the two stores, The Doughnut Vault also has a roaming “vault van”. Follow @doughnutvalut on twitter to track the location of their mobile vault van or get a heads up on the daily specials.

In the market for donuts, coffee, and chicken? Well then Do-rite Donuts on Eire is the spot for you. Top-pick donuts here include the Carrot Cake, Chocolate Old Fashioned and Pistachio Lemon. If you are trying to be less sinful, try their gluten-free or vegan options. Do-rite serves them up daily and you can even order online. The Randolph location is also great for a donut and coffee fix, but unfortunately there’s no chicken menu.
