Doughnuts are those ubiquitous sweets that can work into any meal: breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and so on. Whether yeast, cake, jelly, cream, frosted, glazed, or even good ol’ plain, there is a doughnut to fit every situation and preference.

In Austin, the fried dough is a-plenty, from late-night offerings from Mrs. Johnson’s Bakery, gourmet takes from Sunset Valley shop Bougie’s Donuts, ginormous ones from Round Rock Donuts, extremely over-the-top dishes at Gourdough’s, to miniature ones at Little Lucy’s, vegan/gluten-free ones from Zucchini Kill. This update adds TLV, Master Donuts, Howdy Donut, and Combo Donuts.

The city's chock-full of other baked goods and sweets, too. Check out Eater’s guides to essential bakeries, kolaches, pie, cookies, and macarons.
