Casual Friday Donuts

The popular pit stop for classic treats like maple bars (a vegan version, too) and glazed rings is also renowned for their MOAD (Mother of All Donuts), glazed, layered croissant with chocolate and caramel drizzle (tip: it sells out). Homemade, handcrafted and huge, it's no wonder these doughnuts have Spokanites drooling. 3402 N. Division St., Spokane • 328-1764

The Donut House

Fresh, soft and full of flavor, the donuts at The Donut House in Hayden keep North Idaho in sweet treats year-round. They specialize in custom jobs and donut creations unlike any you've seen before, but get there early, lest you be relegated to glazed with your morning joe. 8761 N. Government Way, Hayden, Idaho • 208-635-5288

Mike's Old

Fashioned Donuts

Everything one could want in a donut shop. The glaze is to die for, the crullers are incredibly tasty, and the apple fritters are delicious. Less common styles, from the caramel apple bars to the peanut butter and chocolate bars, are just as good. 9219 E. Sprague Ave., Spokane Valley • 926-7385

Retro Donuts

Don't let the name fool you; this North Spokane donut shop is definitely forward-thinking. In addition to traditional donut favorites like maple bars and apple fritters, you can get bacon-dappled donuts and Arctic Circles — ice cream sandwiches made with donuts. 10925 N. Newport Hwy., Spokane • 315-9502 n
