Get your doughnut fix in Brisbane City
It’s National Doughnut Day (deep breaths, guys) and Brisbane City is celebrating with free doughnuts, face-sized doughnuts, doughnut burgers, and healthy, guilt-free doughnuts.
We’re bringing you into the inner circle with our doughnut bucket list for Brisbane’s CBD. Make sure you take a well-deserved doughnut break today and celebrate the holiest date in the calendar.
Doughnut Time, Albert St & King George Square bus station
Doughnut Time go big. They’re celebrating Doughnut Day with three limited-edition mega doughnuts. There's the D’oh Nut!, the Big Poppa and (wait for it) the Chris Hemsworthy. We had the same glazed expression you have right now. Red velvet vegan dough, vegan cookies, cream frosting with crushed choc ripple biscuits and a vegan chocolate glaze. Sweet hammer of Thor.
The mega doughnuts are available now until Thursday 8 June 2017. Just make sure you pre-order.
Pull up a seat at the Doughnut Bar where the possibilities are endless. Doughnuts, cronuts, doughcones and shakes ... this menu features a hole lot. We love the Strawberry Nutella Cream Doughcone. For those of you who are “clean eating”, try the Matcha Green Tea Doughcone. The injectables (especially the caramel) are a fun treat too.
Nodo, Creek St
Nodo is GF-squared (that's gluten-free AND guilt-free). These healthy, pretty, flatlay-worthy treats demand a #humblebrag on Insta. Nodo uses artisan methods, gluten free ingredients, local free-range eggs and bakes fresh daily. Start your day right with their Breakfast Doughnut. It’s banana with maple cream cheese and caramelised pecans. It’s hard to go past our personal favourite, Rocky Rose. A cacao doughnut with sour cherries, a raw chocolate glaze and a smattering of rose petals.
The OG of doughnuts. Krispy Krème has 30,000 free Original Glazed Doughnuts to give away in celebration of National Doughnut Day. They'll go fast so head in ASAP.
Embracing the Nutella trend, their latest addition to the menu is filled and drizzled with Nutella and dusted with icing sugar. Worth forking out the cash for this one.
Red Hook, Gresham Lane
Need a bit of savoury with your sweets? Doughnut worry, Red Hook caters for you too. Brisbane's laneway culture is going off and this New York-inspired eatery is a local hotspot for burgers.
But what’s that got to do with doughnuts, you ask? Available today only is their tribute to National Doughnut Day: a wagyu beef patty with bacon, cheese, bacon jam and their famous special sauce slammed in between two Krispy Krème doughnuts. Live large, give it a go.
Le Bon Choix, Queen St & Edward St
If you're looking for an understated, sophisticated doughnut experience that's a little less in your face, Le Bon Choix has two locations in the city. Handcrafted French sweets and street-side tables make for a breezy lunch date or afternoon tea. They have Nutella, custard, caramel and jam-filled doughnuts on the reg plus a desserts window that is très belle!
Make sure you grab a doughnut at one of these delicious locations. It’s in the national interest.
