Indie, Gourmet, Vegan or Trendy Doughnuts, in Orlando we have them all! I’m so happy we do because it wasn’t always like this. For the longest time your donuts options were VERY limited to glazed, chocolate or sprinkles. But now!!! We have doughnut trucks, pop-up shops, mom & pop shops, and tourist destinations surfacing everywhere in the city and throughout Central Florida.
Today, in honor of National Doughnut Day coming up on June 1st, I bring you an Orlando Doughnut Tour that I know you will love! And what’s not to love about doughnuts! I started working on this tour around March. Whenever my husband and I had a weekend available we would go. Of course, my kids loved it too, and we had an amazing time, but I probably won’t eat another doughnut the rest of the year! LOL!! I tried them all along with gaining a few pounds! I even got together with the gorgeous and colorful blogger: Gaby Torres (my last name twin) who runs the blog: “She Wears Color” for a collaboration at VooDoo Doughnut. I bring you everything you need to know about these fabulous places and hope you enjoy it!
Donuts To Go
Donuts To Go are delicious! Their classic glazed donuts are the best! You have to get them early because they taste better when they are super fresh. I go here frequently as the Debary location is only a five-minute drive from my house. You will find two traditional neighborhood shops in Central Florida, one in DeBary and one in Sanford.
Locations: DeBary – 2851 Enterprise Rd – hours: Sun-Sat 6am-2pm & Sanford – 1414 W 1st St – hours: Mon-Fri 6am-6pm Sat-Sun 6am-2pm
What an amazing shop!!!!! This Oregon trendy shop just opened its first East Coast store at Universal City Walk. At Voodoo Doughnut you will love the décor, the doughnut wheel and the giant doughnut throne outside. Because of its popularity, prepare to wait in line to get in. If you go on a Sunday morning, you may only wait about 20 minutes. Fun fact: a local celebrity is on one of their walls. If you find it, let me know. LOL!!!! My favorite was the voodoo doll and the eight mile with M & M’s – delish! I will post a full review on Voodoo Doughnut and the collaboration I did with my Instafriend the fabulous Gaby Torres who runs the blog “She Wears Color”.
Location: Inside Universal Studios City Walk, Orlando – hours: Mon-Fri 8am-9pm Sat-Sun 8am-11pm
Little Blue Donut Co.
Little Blue Donut Co. is a donut truck that just opened its brick and mortar store in Winter Park. The donuts are delicious and freshly made, so you can go any time of the day! My ultimate favorite was the salted caramel. It was to die for! They are petite, airy and not overfilling. Enjoy them with your favorite latte in a beautiful restaurant setting.
Location: 223 W Fairbanks Ave, Winter Park – hours Sun 8am -1 pm, Mon – closed, Tue-Thur 7am-3pm, Fri-Sat 8am-9pm
Orlandough is a pop-up doughnut shop. You have to custom order or catch them on an event, but they are everywhere! They make the prettiest, brightest, most creative and delicious gourmet doughnuts! When I tried them it was with ice cream, so it was a lot of fun to eat them. I absolutely loved the chocolate brownie doughnut with the Blondie ice cream (golden Oreos, heath and white chocolate chips). Check out their Facebook page for events.

By far the best doughnuts I’ve ever had! I rate Valkyrie Doughnuts #1 in Orlando! And best of all they are vegan!!! They even pass the next day test, because they were still fresh and super delicious the next day! My favorite ones were the key lime and the strawberry. They are located near UCF in East Orlando. The staff is amazing! You will love the donut marquee sign and the unicorn mural. Don’t forget to post on Instagram!
Location: 12226 Corporate Blvd, Orlando – hours: Sun 8am-7pm, Mon-Thur 7am-7pm, Fri 7am-9pm, Sat 8am-9pm
