Best Doughnuts in Fitzroy


The Donut Shop

130 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

Last wednesday I was at my internship and I was talking to my boss about how much I love doughnuts. I search doughnut hashtags on a regular basis hehe

My boss was kind enough to stop off at this new doughnut shop on our way back from a meeting. I had seen it on Instagram and was keen to give it a try.

There was a nice selection of flavours including a vegan option. I love coffee anything so I decided to try the Hazelnut, coffee crunch which was delicious. Great texture and flavour. I will definitely be returning to try the blueberry and lime flavour.

If you are a doughnut fanatic, then definitely give The Donut Shop a try!
