| Angel Donuts

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 ginormous ones from Round Rock Donuts, brioche ones at Lola’s Donuts, frosted goodness from Angel Donuts, nice cake sweets from Andy K’s, to mochi doughnuts at OMG Squee, and much much more.

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