twin donuts in union sq, allston (also home to an awesome neon light sign that blinks when they open at very-early-o'clock.) (or it used to; i hope they're still there!)

Still there. Don't know if they're still good, though.

Demet's in Medford are pretty good. Odd hours and they often sell out however.

The maple glazed is pretty awesome. Mmmm.

Tasty, and so massive you need a fork and knife. I'm not kidding.

I looked to see if anyone had mentioned them yet. They're probably the best I've seen around.

I really like Verna's, on Mass. Ave in North Cambridge. Tried Donuts With A Difference in Medford Square once or twice and was underwhelmed.

Surprisingly good donuts and muffins can be had at the little no-name place inside the Sullivan Square T station. I'm particularly fond of their corn muffins.

i adore Verna's powdered lemon sticks. their other donuts are fine too, but man, those are the best.

i like verna's, too. but donuts are easy to make, and fun. I have no idea what all the cupcake nonsense is about when donuts are out there.

Flour in the South End, hands-down. Once you've tried one, I think you'll agree that no other confection will ever deserve the name donut. Last I checked, they only made them on Sundays, and you had to get there when they opened to get your hands on one because they sold out so fast.

I'm not a huge connoisseur, but considering how many stores they have, Dunkin' Donuts must be doing something right.

Oh I've got a Boston Creme...

Nobody eats Dunkin' Donuts donuts. They are there for coffee that tastes *just* *like* *this*.

If people went to Dunkin' Donuts because they liked *donuts*, Krispy Kreme wouldn't have gone out of business in this area.

Frangelli's at 9th and Ritner.

(Hey, we're not that far from Boston. And a good doughnut is worth a drive.)

I don't know, but I've been meaning to try some of these places that I haven't tried yet.

The Flour doughnuts are entirely worth eating, but they are not the thing I mean when I say "doughnut." For that, I am a loyal partisan of the cake doughnuts at Ohlin's in Belmont. (They also make yeasted ones, on which I cannot comment, having found my personal Platonic doughnut ideal in the cake ones, which don't give me bellyaches.)

For cider doughnuts, on weekends they're served hot over the counter at Shelburne Farm in Stow.

Seconded! Hands down the freshest, best doughnuts and fritters.

Does it count
as being in the Boston area if you are willing to drive there to get fresh donuts ?
Allie's Donuts in Kingston RI.
They are old fashioned New England donuts and you can get them too hot to hold if you get there at the right time.
