Doughnuts in Austin?

katos | Jan 2, 201406:58 PM

Is there any place in Austin that sells classic, hand made doughnuts?

I've been to Gourdoughs, and while their doughnuts are tasty and interesting, they offer a very limited selection when it comes to the basic doughnut: there are no buttermilk bars, old fashioned, or tiger tails. I don't want a doughnut hidden under a cup of sugar.

I've been to Mrs. Johnson's. I've heard they make amazing doughnuts, and while I'm sure this is the case if you're very drunk, eating them fresh from the fryer, but at 8am on Saturday morning the product is definitely much less appetizing. Perhaps I was just there on an off day.

I've been to Ken's Doughnuts on Guadalupe and while they offer some variety including the blueberry and old fashioned doughnuts, everything I ate there tasted like it came out of a box mix. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either.

I'm thinking of driving out to Round Rock doughnuts or down to KC Doughnuts next. Are there any other places I should check out in my hunt for an excellent handmade from scratch doughnut in Austin?
