Dottie’s Diner in Woodbury ranked 20th on the list with its famed cinnamon doughnuts.
“In order to assemble our ranking, we stuck to strict criteria in looking for the best individual donuts in America: Freshness is key, as great donuts need to be served right out of the fryer,” the report announcement notes in explaining the criteria. “Are these legendary donuts that have become things of cultish devotion at the shop that sells them? Are the shops they’re sold in renowned locally? We considered both plain glazed and extravagantly topped creations, but there needed to be a balance between all the components, be it bacon or blueberry jelly. Most importantly, these donuts need to be groan-inducingly good: fresh, soft, gooey, perfectly proportioned, and intended to leave you wanting just one more bite.”
The Connecticut creations at the”deluxe destination for delicious donuts” are described as creamy inside with a crunchy exterior and are among several flavors that are served at the Main Street diner.
The top three ranked best doughnuts in the nation according to the report were the plain glazed doughnuts at the Doughnut Vault in Chicago, the plain glazed at Round Rock donuts in round Rock, Texas and the lemon poppy doughnuts at Dough in Brooklyn, New York.
