When you want to start your morning with a sugary delight, local donut shops can help. They offer everything from classic glazed to one-of-a-kind creations. The shops providing the best donuts near our Austin apartments include:

Little Lucy’s 

At Little Lucy’s, customers enjoy miniature donuts made in an array of unique flavors. You will find the food truck on Rainey Street. It opened in 2013 after the owner decided to bring the donuts of his childhood to Austin. Choices include chocolate, jalapeno, & chili pepper, bacon, maple, & rum, as well as Italian cream cake (a bestseller). Little Lucy’s offers online ordering for pickup and delivery. 

Shipley Do-Nuts 

Shipley Do-Nuts first opened in Houston in 1936. Today, it’s the country’s oldest and largest continuously operating family-owned donut brand. The bakers create the donuts by hand. They use the finest, freshest ingredients and offer the wide variety of flavors found in an old-world bakery. Popular choices include blueberry, cherry sprinkles, and cinnamon sugar. You can order your favorite flavors online for easy pickup. 

Angel Donuts and Treats 

Nestled in northwest Austin, Angel Donuts and Treats became a local fixture in 2012. It is designed to reflect the neighborhood’s hip vibe while at the same time honoring the city’s storied history. In the kitchen, the culinary team creates both sweet and savory treats. They serve donuts for everyone, including vegan and plant-based yeast offerings. Cake donuts include chocolate iced, glazed old-fashioned, as well as salted caramel. The shop opens at 7:00 a.m., and you can call for curbside pickup or order online for delivery.
