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. Continue reading

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.

Old Fashioned Donut
Must-Try
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
Must-Try
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
Must-Try
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.
