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!

Boba & Donuts
6165 W. Chandler Blvd.
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.

Bosa Donuts
1016 N. Arizona Avenue
4015 S. Arizona Avenue
A longtime staple in the Chandler community and local legend, Bosa Donuts now has two 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 and lot of apple chunks and crispy edges.

Dunkin' Donuts
2051 W. Chandler Blvd., Suite 10
2021 S. Alma School Road
2001 N. Arizona Avenue, Ste. 101
1970 W. Elliott Road
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.

Fractured Prune
4910 W. Ray Road, Ste. 1
Located in west Chandler, Fractured Prune has taken the made-to-order concept to a whole new level - doughnuts are not only fried to order and served hot from the fryer, but diners have nearly 20 glazes and 12 toppings to select from - leading to thousands of options! Glazes and toppings go from traditional fruit flavors to more trendy delights like bacon and sea salt - the possibilities are nearly endless. For those that may have a tough time making a decision, Fracture Prune has removed some of the guess work and created a substantial list of Specialty Doughnuts to serve as inspiration - their most popular doughnut is the O.C. Sand (honey glaze and cinnamon sugar)but they have one more attuned to the locale, the Margarita (key lime glaze and sea salt). At Chandler's Fractured Prune, you're sure to create a tasty treat.

Golden Donuts
1960 W. Ray Road
Located at the north-east corner of Dobson and Ray Roads, Golden Donuts opens daily at 4 a.m. serving a large variety of donuts - from cake to raised to bars and twists - there are options for one and all!

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts
1055 W. Chandler Blvd.
For many, Krispy Kreme has been THE doughnut shop and a tradition among the generations - founded in 1937. Krispy Kreme has long been celebrated for their Original Glazed doughnut but offer a large variety of filled and glazed doughnuts with some seasonal offerings in addition to a limited selection of cake doughnuts including the glazed blueberry cake!

Rainbow Donuts and Smoothies
1960 W. Ray Road
From fantastic fritters to mouth-watering cronuts (croissant doughnut) to one-of-a-kind treats like their famous Maple Bacon doughnut to their more unique combinations like the powdered green tea or taro cronut - you are in for a treat when you step into Rainbow Donuts. This family owned operation also features a variety of savory croissant sandwiches, smoothies and Boba drinks.
