5 Best Donut Shops in Toronto

Best Places for Donuts in Toronto
We extensively test and research all services we review. Here's why you can trust us.

It’s no secret that Canucks have a bit of a thing for donuts. I mean, there are more donut shops per person in Canada than anywhere else on the planet — talk about a hole-y obsession! 

And hey, with coffee reigning supreme as Canada’s top beverage (ranked 9th globally for coffee-guzzling), it’s only natural that donuts would tag along as the perfect sidekick.

So, which sugar-coated sanctuaries made the grade? Let’s dish the deets and find out where to get your fix!

COPS Doughnuts

Business Address: 445 Adelaide St W, Rear entrance enter on, Morrison St, Toronto, ON M5V 1T1, Canada

With three spots in Toronto (Lewis, Adelaide, Yorkdale) and a cheeky pop-up in NYC’s Lower East Side, COPS is making doughnut dreams come true worldwide.

Alex White is the Aussie barista turned doughnut kingpin behind COPS. He’s got a knack for business, having dabbled Down Under before making his mark in Toronto. 

And why “COPS”? Well, rumor has it, it’s a nod to the boys in blue and their love for doughnuts.

Their sweet secret to success is thousands of mini doughnuts whipped up daily. It’s all thanks to Alex’s doughnut obsession and a little help from a food scientist and a chef. 

They’ve got flavors like cinnamon sugar, OG glazed, and a new surprise every Monday, announced via their Insta feed.

Machino Donuts

Machino Donuts doesn’t mess around when it comes to making their mouthwatering treats. They use only the finest plant-based ingredients like flour, soy milk, and locally sourced fruits to whip up their delicious donuts. 

From classic cinnamon sugar to their signature cronuts (that’s croissant donuts, for the uninitiated), they’ve got your cravings covered.

Machino’s got a lineup of monthly rotating flavors that’ll make your head spin. They’ve got coconut cream-filled, glazed almond dolce de leche, and cinnamon apple with actual chunks of apple. 

And don’t even get us started on their chocolate-covered Ferrero Rocher and peanut butter cheesecake varieties. They’re big on sustainability, using natural plant-based goodies and making sure any leftover donuts find their way to local food banks.

David and Cecilia are the brains behind Isabella’s Donuts, named after their daughter. They kicked off their donut journey in 2015 and quickly became Toronto’s hottest ticket.

In just three years, they snagged the title of Toronto’s top spot to wait in line for food, according to Yelp. Plus, Toronto Life Magazine gave them a shout-out in their holiday gift guide.

But in 2019, they had to move to a bigger venue to keep up with demand. Then the pandemic hit, and they had to pivot to survive, focusing on their beloved Isabella’s Mochi donuts.

Today, they’re rocking three locations across Toronto: Downtown, Beaches, and Koreatown. With over 300 flavors on rotation, Isabella’s is a flavor-packed paradise that’ll leave you craving more.

The Bozzos are the masterminds behind SanRemo Bakery, a cozy Italian gem in Etobicoke that’s been rocking for over 50 years. 

Natale Bozzo kicked things off back in ’69, naming it after Italy’s swankiest music showdown. He then passed the torch to his trio of troublemakers: Roberto, Edward, and Nicholas.

You’ll often catch these brothers hustling and bustling around the joint because SanRemo is their baby. And oh boy, do they know how to whip up a storm!

Their claim to fame? Those heavenly, pillowy doughnuts that folks just can’t get enough of. 

Lemon meringue or strawberry jam-filled, it’s a messy affair that’s worth every sticky bite!

Waiting for those freshly made Dipped Donuts is like hitting the jackpot. And these aren’t your average donuts. 

We’re talking gourmet yeast donuts here, taking a cool 20 minutes to puff up before they take a dive into the fryer. Then comes the best part — they’re dunked into homemade glazes, made right from scratch with goodies straight from the Market.

These donuts? Fluffier than a cloud on a sunny day, topped with all sorts of deliciousness like crushed Oreo bits. Oh, did we mention they’ve got vegan options too?

Nestled in the cozy corners of Leslieville lies a hidden gem, The Donuterie. We like to think of it as a secret society of doughnut lovers tucked away inside Fruitful Market.

Yannis Banks is the donut head behind both the market and these mouthwatering treats. We mean flavors so rich and decadent, they’ll have you coming back for more. 

And get this — he’s not just sticking to the classics. Yannis gets his inspiration from everything under the sun: seasonal fruits, cocktails, you name it, he’s inspired by it!
