Your Guide to the Best Donuts in Pittsburgh

There’s no getting around it—sometimes you just need a sweet treat. Nothing hearkens back to the simple days of childhood quite like a donut, and luckily for those of us at Lot 24 Pittsburgh luxury apartments, we’ve got a few delicious local options to choose from when the sweet tooth strikes.


Since 2009, owners Ron and Marci have been serving up freshly baked donuts with unique flavors and toppings. Their mouth-watering menu includes options like blueberry pancake, maple bacon, salted pretzel, and Oreo cheesecake, among many others. This family business is conveniently located here in the Strip District, just a short walk from our community. Stop in for a spontaneous treat, or plan ahead by ordering a ‘Disco Dozen.’ If you have an exciting occasion coming up, you can even have Peace, Love, & Little Donuts cater your gathering and wow your guests. Head over to their website for more information on location and hours.


The name says it all. At Just Good Donuts, you get old-fashioned yeast-raised cake donuts, and fresh coffee. The bakery is located within The Pub Chip Shop in South Side Pittsburgh, and is the perfect sweet treat for a mid-day or after-meal pick-me-up. Browse their selection and choose anything from the classic glazed number, to their Maple Bacon Vindaloo special. Donuts come individually, or by the dozen or half dozen so you can bring some home to share with family. The shop opens each day at 6 a.m., and serves fresh treats until they’re out—so make sure you get there early!


I think we speak for just about everyone when we say how impressed we are with food trucks these days, and Galaxy Donuts is no exception. This space-themed bakery on-the-go serves up delicious, mini donuts in quirky and unique flavors. Try out anything from S’mores, Tutti Fruity, Coconut Macadamia, or Peanut Butter Bacon, and the best part is they’re so tiny you can taste them all. Galaxy Donuts is located downtown and is available for mobile catering. Check out their website to learn more.
