Growing up, doughnuts have always had a magical appeal - a perfect weekend treat and an opportunity to have cake for breakfast. In recent years, the doughnut seems to have experienced quite a comeback, with doughnut aficionados clamoring for the best glazed, frosted, and sprinkled pastry delights. Well doughnut lovers, have no fear - Chandler is home to some of the best Arizona doughnut shops and we have a list for you - just in time for the weekend and to help celebrate Dad on Father's day - June 21, 2020!
They're hot, they're fresh and they're cute! What's not to love about the sugared mini-doughnuts? Sweeten your day with these mini gems or pick up a DIY Doughut Kit to make and decorate your fresh doughnuts at your leisure. With 25 plain doughnuts, two bottles of glaze and two toppings - the Doughnuttery maker box if fun for all and an easy pick up at Chandler Fashion Center mall.
Boba & Donuts
Locally owned and operated, this gem is great for an afternoon pick-me-up, as Boba & Donuts not only serves up a variety of fresh donuts and hand-crafted Boba drinks, but they also offer coffee and ice-cream. It is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
A longtime staple in the Chandler community and local legend, Bosa Donuts now has three Chandler locations offering a more traditional, no-frills donut shop experience. With a classic donut bar, diners are presented an array of cake and raised donuts and bars...their apple fritter is quite popular with lots of apple chunks and crispy edges.
Warm, delicious and made-to-order Duck Donuts located in south Chandler is nationally known for their sweet treats. Their cake-style donuts include seasonal options, a variety of fan favorites or customize your own for the ultimate donut.
Fried to order, the boozy-brunch spot offers their craveable starter, the Cannoli donuts. Filled with sweet cannoli cream and dusted with just the right amount of powdered sugar is a must have at this local, Arizona restaurant as Hash Kitchen's donuts tend to disappear quickly.

For many of us, the first mention of doughnut shop brings forth memories of the infamous Dunkin' Donuts commercial exclaiming it's time to make the donuts! A powerhouse of doughnuts, Dunkin' Donuts has been serving up doughnuts and coffees to diners near and far and has four locations in Chandler. On a side note, 'doughnuts' is the dictionary approved spelling for these wonderful pastry gems, but the shortened 'donuts' has been around since the 1800s but became popular in the 20th century with the rise and expansion of this successful doughnut operation.
Have fun this weekend making memories and discovering your favorite Chandler doughnut shop! We would love to hear about your favorite finds!
