So where can you find the best donuts in Minneapolis?

The answer is simple: Glam Doll Donuts, 2605 Nicollet Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55408.

This fun shop opened in 2013 and is located in the very hip “Eat Street” neighborhood…an eclectic area with dozens of restaurants serving food from all over the world. Someday we’ll do a “Tour of Eat Street” blog/vlog…and we’ll be very happy about that mission! Hehe.

They are open weekdays from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM and weekends from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Be warned: when the donuts sellout, they close up shop…so you may want to get there a bit before closing. We visited towards the end of the day, and they were already sold out of vegan donuts.

Glam Doll Donuts is a happy place where every donut is a work of art! They prepare their doughs, fillings and icings from scratch…and you can tell. They specialize in artisan donuts in quirky flavors with very fun names. It’s so cute!
