1. Vandal Doughnuts

It's not uncommon to see a line of people waiting outside this beloved North End doughnut shop before they've even opened their doors. The menu is extensive and the doughnuts are delicious. The moment you open their bright pink box, you'll be torn between the desire to capture the beautifully created pastries for your Instagram feed, and the much stronger urge to devour the dozen (because you NEED to get a dozen).

Every morning the doughnut wizards at Fortune create a fresh new menu of ever-changing flavours. Previous flavour standouts include Dunkaroo, Moon Mist Glazed, PB&J Fortune, Lucky Charms Honey Clovers, and Confetti Cake PopTart Bites.

Our recommendation: Put your trust in the experts and order a mixed box for a sweet surprise!
