Order a Delicious Dozen at These Donut Shops in Tampa

It's been a century since Adolph Levitt invented the automatic doughnut machine - that sure helps with the 10 billion doughnuts made every year in the United States. There are plenty of Dunkin' Donuts in the Tampa area and even a few Krispy Kreme stores, but nothing beats fresh donuts from your local specialty shop. Support small local businesses and enjoy tasty treats at these donut shops just a few minutes from our Tampa apartments.

Local Mini Donut Company

At Local Mini Donut Company, the little donuts are made fresh in their food truck and are the perfect size for a sweet snack. You'll have a hard time choosing from flavors like Pop Tart, Maple Pecan, and Cinnamon Bun. Boxes come in 4, 12, 16, and 32 count. Pick one up for your next special event or to enjoy while you walk around downtown Tampa. They also serve coffee drinks and Italian sodas. Local Mini Donut Company is located at 411 N Florida Avenue.


Fans of Dough love the quirky atmosphere. They also love their donuts. Try Key Lime Pie, Reese's, or Coffee Crumble. They have cake and yeast donuts, as well as filled. Get a specialty variety box so you can try them all. They also have cupcakes, slices of cake and pie, brownies, and homemade ice cream. Dough is located at 2602 S MacDill Avenue, next door to their sister restaurant, Datz, where you can try their Nashville Chicken Doughnut if you’re in the mood for something savory. This meal features fried chicken tenders in a spicy sauce, drizzled with honey, and topped with pickles, all sandwiched within a cinnamon sugar doughnut.

Simply Done Donuts

If you're wondering if Simply Done Donuts are worth a try, just look at their perfect 5-star rating on Yelp. This small business started as a mini donut truck in Atlanta and after much success, they opened a brick-and-mortar store. Now they have a second store right here in Tampa. All donuts start as a Plain Jane and then get hand decorated with powdered sugar, icing, and other toppings. There are vegan options as well, and they serve coffee drinks made with ethically grown beans including cold brews, lattes, or frappes.
