With five different locations in prominent spots across the city, it’s almost harder to not run into a Union Square Donuts shop. Their maple bacon donut, which comes with a healthy dosing of sliced bacon, is probably their most recognizable treat, though our preference is the fluffy, plain-jane sugar donut, which is made very well. Yeah, sometimes, we’re pretty boring.
