No city in the US is home to more great and weird donut shops than Portland, but Blue Star stands above the rest. This local chain has eight locations around town, so you’re never too far from a donut break when you need one. They serve classic flavors, like PB and J, alongside their more unique combinations, like horchata glazed and blueberry bourbon basil, so there’s something for everyone. Stop by the Northwest 23rd location when you need a shopping break or a mid-day sugar boost. There will definitely be a line but it’s always worth it.
