The Donut Pub

One of the most traditional options on this list, The Donut Pub sells classic donuts, coffee, pastries and sandwiches. The space is small and it can be tricky to get a seat. Open 24/7, it’s the perfect spot for a late-night or early-morning treat.

Dough

With a new location recently opened in Manhattan’s Flat Iron neighborhood, this popular Brooklyn shop serves up exotic flavors like hibiscus, passion fruit and chocolate with earl grey. Open daily. Dough also is available for catering.

 

Underwest Donuts

Underwest Donuts sells the best donut from a car wash you’ll ever eat. You read that right. Located in the hallway of the Westside Highway Car Wash, the tiny bakery sells fresh-brewed coffee and made-from-scratch donuts. The cake-style donuts come in glazed, sugared and old-fashioned (a.k.a. plain).

Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop

This Brooklyn staple is popular among locals and tourists — it’s a favorite of Tina Fey. Often considered one of the best bakeries in New York City, Peter Pan has been selling their famous treats for 62 years. At $1 per donut, it’s tempting to indulge in more than one.

 

Honorable mention: Dominique Ansel Bakery

This SoHo bakery was put on the map by their world-famous Cronut. The pastry, a combination of a croissant and donut, has been copied by many. Hungry patrons still wait for hours to sample the original.

Bar de Pla, Barcelona, Spain

When it comes to local, authentic tapas bars in the capital of Catalonia, they can be considered a dime a dozen. There are loads of options to choose from, so many so the average visitor to Barcelona can be completely confused as to where to even begin a search for pan con tomate. But one unsuspecting gem in the trendy neighborhood of El Born features a no-fuss, no-nonsense approach to traditional Spanish tapas, adding an extra touch of authenticity with the homemade cava.
