7. Blue Star Donuts
Voodoo Doughnut may get most of the buzz from out-of-towners visiting Portland, but Blue Star Donuts, with four Portland locations (plus two in Japan and one in Los Angeles), has a straightforward, unfussy menu. Its dough takes 18 hours to make from scratch every day—talk about doughnut dedication!—and its glazes and fillings are made fresh daily too. The blueberry bourbon basil and O.G. (original glazed) were equally #delicious and called for multiple social media posts.
