Dunk Donuts in Melrose Park, Ill.

— Jeff Mauro

Banbury Cross Donuts in Salt Lake City

Nord’s Bakery in Louisville, Ky.

“They’re the best doughnuts in town.

glazed. It comes in a 
paper bag that reads, ‘You 
deserve a doughnut.’ ” — Damaris Phillips

Imperial Beach, Calif.

“My mom used to take us. It’s nothing fancy, just a perfect glazed doughnut.” — Marcela Valladolid

DiCamillo Bakery in Niagara Falls, N.Y.

“My wife is from Niagara Falls, and when
