Discover Ames

Discover donuts in Ames

June 3 was National Donut Day, but we think every day should be Donut Day! Here are some great places to snag a donut around Ames.  

Bricktown Bakery in Nevada has an amazing selection of flavors, including lemon drizzle and peanut butter cup. Have breakfast in one bite with their maple bacon donut and wash it down with fresh coffee. Take the scenic route and discover the hidden treasure that this bakery is.

Celebrate into the weekend with Huey’s Mini Donuts, a frequent food truck at Ames Main Street Farmers Market. A lot of goodness packed into a little donut is the perfect sidekick for a main street stroll.  

Got your fix but want to keep the sweetness around? Oak Lane Candle Co just released a new scent in time for the holiday: apple cider donut. “This warm and sweet scent combines the sweet, tart scent of apple cider, with the delicious scent of fried donuts,” raves this local gift shop.  

Hy-Vee bakery makes great pastries, especially when you’re on the go. Grab a box while getting your groceries for everyone to celebrate the holiday. We think the donuts with cardinal and gold sprinkles taste the best, but we could be biased… 

Van Hemert’s Dutch Oven Bakery near downtown serves up tasty creations daily. Try their sour cream donuts for a little bit of tang or feed your sweet tooth with double chocolate.
