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.

(original glazed) were equally #delicious and called for multiple social media posts.
