Best Doughnuts 

Dynamo Donut and Coffee

Dynamo is not a store per se, but a walk-up doughnut-and-coffee counter, offering just what the name implies: coffee (roasted a mere two miles away at Four Barrel Coffee), and artisanal doughnuts from husband-and-wife team Sara Spearin and Jonny Raglin. The classic Dynamo Donut is a raised yeast cake doughnut, excitingly flavored and glazed, made from local and organic ingredients whenever possible, and priced between $2 and $3. Five to 10 flavors from the rotating roster, currently at 16 varieties and constantly expanding, are available daily including salted caramel, chocolate spice, chocolate with star anise glaze, lemon thyme, candied orange blossom, toasted coconut, and pistachio. The most famous and blogged-about Dynamo Donut is the maple-glazed apple garnished with crunchy bacon bits, which sounds weird but is delicious.
