Beats the OGs: The Salty Donut

Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme can’t beat the tastes of a donut from a wholesome, family-owned shop. The Salty Donut is a donut chain that started in Miami in 2014. It has since branched out to a variety of states in the South and other parts of Florida such as West Palm Beach, Tampa, and Orlando. The Orlando location is on Corrine Drive in Audubon Park.

The Salty Donut is no ordinary shop. Here, you’ll find a bevy of unique flavors such as butterbeer, guava and cheese, toasted coquito, and cinnamon pear crumble.

Seeking Savory & Sweet? Meet Smoke & Donuts BBQ

Most restaurants offer fares to feed both your savory and sweet cravings. Few have mastered in doing both like Smoke & Donuts BBQ  has. One bite into their bourbon bacon donut and you’ll see what we mean.

Located on Primrose Drive in the Milk District, Smoke & Donuts BBQ also brings sweetness to the city of Orlando with their made-to-order peanut butter crunch, pineapple upside-down, and blonde blueberry donuts.

Smoke & Donuts BBQ also specializes in plain donuts coated in vanilla, chocolate, caramel macchiato, and candied lemonade glaze.
