How to Take the Ultimate Pittsburgh Doughnut Road Trip

Let’s have a quick chat about the doughnut scene in Pittsburgh.

While it’s basically a fact that anything deep-fried and coated is sugar is going to be delicious, Pittsburgh doesn’t coast on that promise. We take our doughnuts seriously, and there are countless shops in the southwestern corner of the state treating doughnuts like an art form.

Whether it be glazed, cake batter, sugar-coated, or filled, there’s only one way to discover your favorite doughnut in Pittsburgh – try them all.

So we did all the hard work here at Good Food Pittsburgh, and devised, for you, the Ultimate Pittsburgh Doughnut Road Trip.

Duck Donuts are the new kids on the block, and everyone is raving about them – and who can blame them, because what’s better than a made-to-order doughnut?  Each Duck Donut is comprised of a freshly-made vanilla cake doughnut that’s coated, topped and drizzled to the customer’s specifications. Coating options include: cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, glazed, chocolate icing, peanut butter icing, and maple icing.  Next up are the toppings (think rainbow sprinkles, graham crackers, and chopped peanuts). Finally, if you can stand to wait any longer, drizzle your doughnut with hot fudge, marshmallow, salted caramel, and more. For the indecisive bunch, Duck Donuts also has an incredible menu of featured donuts.
