Friday June 1 marks National Doughnut Day. To celebrate, some of Sydney’s best doughnut makers are offering freebies, cheap deals or special new creations that you won’t find on any other day of the year. Here’s all you need to know to plan out your doughnut dash.
Shortstop Coffee & Donuts
Shop 3/23 Barangaroo Avenue, Barangaroo
Shortstop is delighting us with a free cinnamon, cardamom, and sugar-cake doughnut with every order. Over 3000 doughnuts will be handmade to mark the occasion, using an American-inspired recipe.
Choose from a wide range of doughnuts, which will be made from three different dough recipes with quality ingredients such Pepe Saya butter and Laucke Flour Mills Flour.
72 Pyrmont Bridge Road, Camperdown
Grumpy Donuts is bringing back the Sour Patch Jam to celebrate National Doughnut Day. A sweet house-made raspberry-jam filling brings back fond childhood memories of sour lollies, while a sour-sugar has been dusted on the outside rim.
A new Funfetti Cookie Dough Donut will also be rolled out. The glazed doughnut is filled with a funfetti-cookie dough and finished with sprinkles. To secure your box of fluffy doughy delights order online or pop into the neon Camperdown store for a Single-O coffee as well.
13 Beattie Street, Balmain
If your eyes are glazing over in the office on Friday, you can order online from Nutie Donuts. Ordering two dozen doughnuts within the CBD, will not only get you free delivery, but enter you into a game of Hottie or Not(tie) Delivery Roulette. Delivering your doughnut delights will be either a six-pack-clad Footy player from the GWS Giants or a delivery guy with a “dad bod”. In store you’ll find limited-edition flavours and surprise giveaways to sweeten up your Friday.
Loukoumades Greek Street with Deliveroo
481 King Georges Road, Beverly Hills
If you don’t have the time to run out for a doughnut don’t worry; Deliveroo will be delivering 1 cent doughnuts to your door. A 3-pack is available from the Greek doughnut bar, who specialise in loukoumades (loo-koo-mah-thez), which are deep-fried balls of dough, drenched in honey and cinnamon. Place your order here.
34A Redfern St, Redfern
Donut Papi is increasing production to meet the demand this Friday. Known for spoiling customers with out-there flavours (such as its recent, sold-out Mi Goreng Noodle collaboration with Indomi), on Friday it’s rolling out a new June menu.
Henry Deane Plaza, 4/2 Lee Street, Sydney
Walk into any Krispy Kreme store and you’ll walk away with a free Original Glazed Doughnut this Friday. Last year the fried-treat chain gave away 30,000 doughnuts; this year it has upped the ante to 50,000.
