Five of the best doughnuts
Here are five of the tastiest doughnuts Auckland has to offer.
A newbie to the Mt Eden scene is Olly. They do doughnuts and coffee, and they do them well.
They serve up every flavour you can hope for, including the classics, and take the casual dining experience up a notch as the cafe doubles as a gallery too.
Little and Friday
Little and Friday have long had a stronghold on Auckland’s doughnut game, and deservedly so.
Though there are all sorts of crazy flavour combinations which are on-trend then fizzle out, Little and Friday do the best classic raspberry jam and cream doughnut in the city.
Nestled away in Ponsonby Central, Foxtrot Parlour has an extensive menu and an array of sweet treats and cabinet food to set your heart aflutter.
But no meal there would be complete without one of their injectable doughnuts. Don’t let the big silver surgical-looking syringe scare you.
‘Al’ knows what he is doing. The doughnuts at Al’s Deli are light, crispy and chewy all at once. Syringes filled with caramel, chocolate or raspberry sit idly by - just waiting to inject all that goodness into the middle of a doughnut. If you’re not sold yet, let me leave you with two final words: they deliver.
If you have amassive sweet tooth like I do, Miss Moonshine’s Orleansstyle doughnuts are hard to beat.
Three warm, heavenly morsels are dusted with chunks of honeycomb, cinnamon cream, and come with a jug of salted caramel for you to drizzle over as you please.
