Busken Bakery:
Location: Rookwood
Donut: Persian
Overall: The Rookwood location is also the bakery, so everything was really fresh. Busken is one of my all time favorites.

Tweedles Daylight Donuts:
Location: UC’s campus
Donut: Glazed
Overall: There were a lot of options and all reasonably priced. Was it worth driving to UC? Probably not.

Servatii Pastry Shop & Deli:
Location: Hyde Park
Donut: Raspberry jelly filled
Overall: It was OK. Servatii is more known for their pretzels, and that’s probably for the best.

Holtman’s Donut Shop:
Location: OTR
Donut: Red velvet with frosting
Overall: The atmosphere is fun and cute, but the donuts are dense and a little too rich for my taste.

Silverton Donut Shop:
Location: Silverton
Donut: Frosted with sprinkles
Overall: The shop was simple, cheap (about $1), and very good, but there were only about five choices.
