Get your doughnut fix in Brisbane City

It’s National Doughnut Day (deep breaths, guys) and Brisbane City is celebrating with free doughnuts, french-style doughnuts, 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. 

Nodo, Creek St

NoDo Doughnuts

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. 

Krispy Krème, Myer Centre

The OG of doughnuts. Krispy Krème has 50,000 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, our favourite Krispy Krème (apart from the original glaze, obviously) is filled and drizzled with Nutella and dusted with icing sugar. Worth forking out the cash for this one.

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!

Food Trucks of the World | every second Tuesday

Check out the gluten free doughnuts when Food Trucks of the World roll into King George Square every second Tuesday. Serving lunch between 11.30am and 2pm, the queues can get long, so get in quick and avoid wasting your break.

Riverside at the Gardens Markets | every Sunday

Can you go wrong with the classic cinnamon doughnut? BadBoys Doughnuts brings you the classic on a new level. Live the guilt-free life with these gluten-free, nut-free, and egg-free doughnuts. 

BadBoys Doughnuts stay with the tradition of cinnamon sugar while also offering a range of sugar toppings infused with real fruit. These flavours combined with light and fluffy gluten-free doughnuts = bliss. You can find these delicious treats at Riverside at the Gardens Markets every Sunday. 

Make sure you grab a doughnut at one of these delicious locations. It’s in the national interest.

When Penny’s not brunching on chicken waffles at Kettle & Tin or hanging out with her cat, she’s probably in @BrisbaneCity buying shoes or channelling her spirit animal, Annabel Crab. If you happen to catch her outside the suburb of Paddington, it’ll likely be at Doo Bop dancing to free jazz, eating the award-winning degustation at Urbane or immersing herself in Brisbane’s startup ecosystem. Either way, hand her a champagne saber and see what happens next.
