Annie’s Donut Shop

Bakery | Diner | Donuts
One of the best

There are many deluxe donuts in Portland, even Goth donuts (at Voodoo Donuts), but for traditional donuts that go with morning coffee (not latte!), Annie’s is a treasure. They’re made here daily, and the variety is tremendous. Old-fashioned cake donuts have the double-circle shape so popular in the Northwest that provides nearly twice the crunchy exterior of a simple round one. Glazed and maple-frosted OFs are especially satisfying, and although the price is plebeian, the taste and mouth feel are aristocratic. Cream puffs are light and impeccably fresh-flavored, the only way a cream puff ever should be. The wickedest variety we sampled was a raspberry fritter – unctuous, super-sweet, slightly fruity, and monumentally filling.

Annie’s has none of the amenities of upscale coffee and donut shops: no art on the walls, no wi-fi, no couches or lounge chairs and, of course, no barristas. You sit in molded plastic booths that look out on the parking lot and are served by a staff with no attitude other than pride in the donuts they make and sell.

What to Eat
Annie’s Donut Shop, Old Fashioned Donut
Old Fashioned Donut
Annie's donuts have a wicked crunch to their gnarly skin and rich, cakey insides. Pictured here are glazed, maple, and chocolate.
Annie’s Donut Shop, Raspberry Fritter
Raspberry Fritter
Raspberry fritters are large and substantial with a naughty taste that is hard to resist. The raised, sugar-coated donut on the right is, by comparison, a featherweight.
Annie’s Donut Shop, Apple Sauce Donut
Apple Sauce Donut
These are donuts worth getting up early for! Here is a glazed apple sauce and devil's food.
Annie’s Donut Shop, Cream Puff
Cream Puff
We were skeptical when we ordered a cream puff. We suspected the filling would be unbearably ersatz. While it may not be 40% butterfat Jersey cattle double cream, the white stuff in the tender pastry is fresh and utterly agreeable.
