Union Square Donuts

You don’t really know what a doughnut is – or can be – until you’ve torn into one of the plush pastries from Union Square Donuts. One bite is all it takes to see why Boston has fallen head over heels for the bakery’s ingenious circular creations, made from scratch daily using brioche dough. Brace yourself for the tastiest of choices: Try the essential Boston cream or the smoky-sweet maple-bacon rounds, and don’t forget to opt for seasonal flavors like blackberry-basil-lime while they last.
