And that’s kind of the same thing.” In New Hampshire the go-to donut shop is definitely Dunkin’s, but homemade gourmet donuts around the state are hard to beat. Here are some of our absolutely favorite donut shops in New Hampshire that will have your mouth watering.
If You Are Searching For The Best Donuts In New Hampshire Look No Further
New Hampshire has plenty of Dunkins locations but if you want gourmet donuts or handmade donuts then this will help you navigate your way to some doughy deliciousness. Below are some of the locations on where to find the best donuts in NH.
Brothers Donuts – Franklin NH
I first learned about Brother’s Donuts from a fellow donut-loving friend and he raved about these freshly baked donuts. I first had one when a local coffee shop in Concord started getting boxes of fresh made donuts every morning. I am a sucker for good hand-made donuts and these are on the top of my list. Brother’s offers a lot of traditional flavors but we particularly recommend trying the maple frosted and maple frosted crème filled.

Muriel’s Donuts – Lebanon NH
Muriel’s Donuts is a donut goldmine in the Upper Valley. Muriel’s donuts and I go way back. I actually grew up in Enfield NH and when I was a high school Freshman my buddy Mark and I had a Paper Route. We would stop at Muriel’s to grab fresh donuts to devour while working. I think we spent all the money we made on fresh made donuts each morning. It’s a really small operation in Lebanon but they make some great tasting donuts.

Chichester Country Store – Chichester NH
The Historic Chichester Country Store is located just 15 minutes East of Concord, NH. My friend Betsy originally told me about this hidden gem. Chichester Country Store is well-known for their Apple Cider Donuts and WOW are they good! These delicious Apple Cider Donuts come in Plain, sugared, cinnamon-sugared, maple-frosted, chocolate-frosted, and glazed. They even offer baskets of their mini donuts too! They also have experimental flavors from time to time too. You can of course find them at their Chichester store but I sometimes see them at the Concord NH Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings in the Summer.
