“You want to find an outlaw, hire an outlaw. You want to find a Dunkin’ Donuts, call a cop.”
-Leonard Smalls, Raising Arizona [1987]

This Best Donuts in Salt Lake City list is dedicated to the legend that convinced us that donuts are a breakfast item. Is it breakfast? Is it dessert? We believe it doesn’t matter. Donuts are not bound by time. Or maybe, time IS a donut. An infinite loop. Stay woke. Whether you are eating a donut as part of a balanced breakfast, bringing a box into the office so all your coworkers will love you, or treating yourself to a well-deserved dessert, this is the list for you. After much debate, we believe we’ve found The Best Donuts in Salt Lake City. Enjoy!

Also, what are donut holes? Holes are defined by absence. Holes are hollow. From here on out, please only refer to “donut holes” as “donut plugs” – or ‘nut plugs, if you will.
