The Salty Donut

We need to be honest. Some of the best donuts in Dallas can be found at this spot, and they look more like cakes than breakfast food. And with names like the Horchata Donut, the Key Lime Meringue Pie Donut, and the Carmel Toffee Crumb, we see no reason why you shouldn’t have one for dessert. Plus, they’ve got cold brew growlers to go, and for you donut junkies out there, be sure to sign up for their rewards program.

Here’s where you’ll find crazy character donuts like Minions, Hello Kitty, and Baby Shark, alongside Nutella Oreo donuts, Fruity Pebble donuts, and Strawberry Cream Cheese donuts. Don’t worry! You’ll find all your go-to flavors here too.

This fun shop is in historic Sundance Square in downtown Fort Worth. Not only do they serve a monthly rotating menu of donuts like Root Beer Float, Hibiscus Lime, and Strawberry Shortcake, but they’ve got beer and wine for purchase too, which means you can stop here later in the day (open until 3 pm Sun-Thurs, and 10 pm Fri. & Sat!)  and everyone in your crew can enjoy happy hour.

Detour Donuts

The menu at Detour changes every month, and the options are totally different. Think Thai Tea & Coconut, Blueberry Goat Cheese, Tiramisu, Lemon & Earl Gray and much more. And don’t worry, donut traditionalists, there’s a menu of classic options like glazed, chocolate, old-fashioned, apple fritters, and the ever-popular donut holes.
