Do you really need a special day to celebrate, and eat, doughnuts? Not really, but a day dedicated to doughnuts, is more than enough reason for us to celebrate these doughy, deep-fried circles of goodness. Celebrated on the first Friday in June, this day of doughnut honour was created to honour volunteers, the “doughnut lassies”, who baked and served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
Here are 6 spots in Surrey to raise, and eat, a doughnut on National Doughnut Day, or any day!
Black Tiger Coffee Co.
110-19255 Fraser Highway
Because, what better way to up your coffee game? With a rotating selection of doughnuts every day, there’s sure to be one for everyone. Think mouthwatering flavours like Maple Brownie, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Toffee Crunch, and everyone’s favourite the Homer doughnut, dipped in pink vanilla icing and rainbow sprinkles!
Sweet Revenge Bakery
#6 19567 64 Avenue
The new kids on the block, Sweet Revenge Bakery & Cafe have hit the ground running and are serving up some next-level doughnuts, not to mention the other baked treats, sandwiches and coffee. Oh, and don’t forget about the 18 yummy flavours of gelato that they’ll have in store daily. The doughnuts are made fresh daily, in-house and recent flavours have included Cinnamon Sugar, Raspberry Chocolate, Hazelnut, Maple Glaze, Lemon Glaze, Pistachio and Oreo.
#106 15331 16th Avenue
Everbean Cafe doesn’t have doughnuts on the menu every day, but when they do, they are flavour explosions! And with recent flavours like chocolate peanut butter, chocolate lavender and chocolate caramel there was something for all the chocolate lovers! Keep an eye on their social media for their next doughnut pop-up shop – previous pop-up partners have been Vancouver favourites, Lucky’s Doughnuts and Butterboom Bakery.
New Amsterdam Bakery
12892 96 Avenue
Despite the smaller doughnut selection, the ones at New Amsterdam more than makeup for it! Be sure to give the Bavarian Creme a try, but make sure to get there early as they often sell out.
Fresh Street Market
Fleetwood – 15930 Fraser Highway
Panorama – 15127 Highway 10
Groceries and so much more! The bakery department at the Fleetwood and Panorama locations of Fresh Street Market is full of flaky, sweet goodness … and doughnuts! Available in a variety of flavours every day and in regular and mini sizes.
107-3425 189 Street
Do you like your doughnuts with a little whisky on the side? Let’s be real … who doesn’t? Head to Mainland Whisky for their “Whisky & Donut Flight” featuring 4 delicious house-made doughnuts smothered in Mainland Whisky glazes.
