Best places to grab a Donut in Provo, Utah
Mornings can be rough, however there is no better way to start your day than with a donut from one of these hotspots in Provo.
The Provo Bakery
This list would frankly be fraudulent if it didn’t include The Provo Bakery. The quaint little shop has been serving up some of the valley’s most mouthwatering donuts for more than 50 years. If I were forced to pick, I’d recommend indulging in the buttermilk bar or the seasonal pumpkin spice donut, then proceeding to try all of the other donuts at some point, of course. Go early in the day before the best stuff’s gone!

BYU’s Sugar and Spice
In case you didn’t already know, BYU has its own bakery and makes a mean old-fashioned donut. The thing is moist, dense and pairs perfectly with a BYU Creamery chocolate milk. If you don’t want to go all the way into the Cougar Eat, you can nab a donut at the BYU Creamery on 9th east.
Located on the BYU campus, inside the Wilkinson Center’s Cougar Eat, (801) 422-3111
One of Macey’s new advertising taglines is, “I need a Macey’s donut right now!” I’ve found myself saying that phrase in my head on several occasions. It seems especially relevant when I’m in the grocery store with my little kids, a long shopping list and a short fuse. The donuts are fresh, there are lots of flavors (can’t beat their classic maple bars). I’ll never forget the time I earned my own money as a little girl to buy one of their huge Texas donuts, which is pretty much five donuts in one. And I’m pretty sure I ate the whole thing myself. I told you this was a lifelong addiction, didn’t I?

Like Macey’s, Day’s Market’s donuts deliver the kind of fresh, donutty comfort you’d expect from a quality local store’s bakery. I initially discovered them when I needed a conveniently located bribe for my daughter to go under water during her first swimming lesson, and we have been back many-a-time. The toasted coconut donut is a winner in my book.
