The Jelly Donut

Reno is a 24-hour city, so it makes sense to have a 24-hour donut shop too. The Jelly Donut is known for being open whenever your cravings hit. Their chocolate cake donut is too good to pass up any day, or night!

Holey Schmidt Donuts

Cereal and candy on donuts? That’s totally a thing, and Holey Schmidt Donuts does it so well. Located in the heart of our city, they have every topping you could think of from sour gummy worms to M&M’s, Cookie Crisp and Cap’n Crunch. Dreams are made at Holey Schmidt Donuts and with specialties like vegan donuts on Tuesdays and donut delivery, they sure are doing major things to keep Reno sweet.

Donut Bistro

If you’re a fan of crumb or jelly filled donuts, then this is your shop to check out. They make all the classics the right way, offer different flavors of donut holes, & even sell “cherry burritos.” A pink box filled with a dozen is the only way to go at this local shop.

Dapper Doughnuts

Hot. Fresh. Mini. Donuts. This shop in Sparks has made to order mini donuts with toppings like lemon blueberry, crumb, s’mores and more. Think boardwalk donuts, but with so many unique flavor options that everyone will love!

Coffeebar

Are you living a gluten-free lifestyle? Coffeebar, a local coffee shop & bakery, has gluten-free donuts from another local bakery in town so you won’t miss out on the donut action. They have maple, chocolate and red velvet donuts with a more cake-like/hard icing combo. Try them alongside a mocha and it’ll become your next favorite duo.

Rounds Bakery

A croissant and a donut baked together in one make for the most delicious thing you will ever eat, and at Rounds Bakery is where you’ll find just that. You can get cake, raised and croissant donuts in every flavor imaginable. No matter which kind is your go-to, you can’t order wrong when you stop inside this bakery.

DoughBoys Donuts

DoughBoys has the lightest and fluffiest glazed raised donuts Reno has to offer. With multiple locations across Reno, you can easily pop in to try their famous blue icing covered Wolf Pack claw, in honor of the University of Nevada, Reno’s mascot, or their rectangular-shaped donut “holes.” Either way, you will most definitely be satisfied.
