Did you know that when donuts first came to America, they were called olykoeks?"
The word translates to oily cakes in Dutch, and at the 1933 Chicago World's Fair, donuts were given the title of "Hit Food of the Century of Progress."
Whether you like your donuts topped with icing or filled with cream, the best nearby donut shops include:
Hypnotic is home to Dallas' original craft donut shop. It was established in 2010 with the mission to create the ultimate donut experience, and the staff arrives early so they can bake the donuts throughout the day to ensure freshness. The bakers make everything by hand, and the cozy seating area features furniture made from reclaimed materials. Donuts include Evil Elvis, Breaking Bad, and Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
Top Pot Doughnuts
Nestled in the Greenville neighborhood, Dallas is home to the only Top Pot outside of Washington. The shop first opened in 2002 in a small storefront in Seattle, and the owners' goal was to create a place where guests could enjoy the taste of a secret 1920s dough recipe in a vintage setting. The service is always friendly, and the dining room comes complete with white brick and shelves lined with books. In the kitchen, the skilled bakers make the donuts the old fashioned way, and choices include chocolate cake, sprinkles, and Feather Boa.
Urban Donut provides a unique experience as it offers a Design Your Own Donut Bar. The selection also features traditional choices, and the shop is known for its energetic, customer service driven atmosphere. The bakers create choices such as Cake Me Up, Trolley Car, and The Cowboy, and they can be enjoyed with a donut shake.
In addition to these donut shops, Mosaic Dallas is also near fun cultural attractions and top shopping destinations. To call our vibrant community home, please contact us. We would love to give you a tour where you can see our offerings firsthand.
