Donut Shops Around Ohio - Cutler Real Estate

Who doesn't like donuts? The delicious fried treats come in enough forms and flavors to please just about anybody, and they even have their own designated Doughnut Day, which falls on June 4. Whether you spell it donut or doughnut, like yeast versions or cake varieties, or crave traditional or out-of-the-box flavors, you'll be able to indulge your cravings around Northeast Ohio.

Try any of the following 9 places to enjoy a delectable donut – or two! – in Northeast Ohio, Columbus, or Cincinnati.

Jack Frost Donuts

4960 Pearl Rd., Cleveland, OH 44109

Since it opened in 1937, Jack Frost Donuts has gained a loyal following through the generations. As their slogan says, every batch is made from scratch, and you can enjoy familiar favorites as well as fun new flavors and designs. The shop makes over 200 types of donuts and has a daily menu as well as rotating additions of other flavors. On the daily menu, you'll find delicious offerings like Boston cream, cherry cheesecake, Death by Chocolate, and a Fruity Pebbles cereal cake donut. Or try a specialty donut, like banana split strawberry cream, Almond Joy, Reese's Cup chocolate cream, or a cake donut with Fruit Loops cereal and white icing. Hours are 6 a.m.-6 p.m. daily, unless the shop sells out of its offerings sooner.

Bigmouth Donut Company

1418 W. 29th St., Cleveland, OH 44113

You can get your fill of craft donuts made from scratch using fresh, natural ingredients at Bigmouth Donut Company. And if you have special dietary needs or preferences, you may want to try some of their vegan or gluten-free options. Order raised brioche donuts in flavors like Georgia peach, peanut butter buckeye, and lemon raspberry, or indulge in fry cakes in flavors like blueberry or Oreo cookie. Gluten-free options include vanilla bean glazed, or go vegan and gluten-free with a choice like chocolate with peanut butter cream. Hours are 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday-Sunday.

Peace Love & Little Donuts

3786 Rocky River Dr., Cleveland, OH 44111

As its name indicates, you'll find the donuts smaller than what you're accustomed to at Peace Love & Little Donuts, but many people refer to them as the perfect size. And if your appetite is a little bigger, you can use their smaller size as the perfect excuse to indulge in several of the tasty treats by sampling different flavors. The shop serves cake-style donuts with frosting and a selection of "funkadelic" toppings. Choose from fun flavors like apple pie, M&M, Oreo cheesecake, s'mores, salted pretzel, and many more. Hours are 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, and 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday.

Throughout the years, they've been made from scratch, from the dough to the icings, glaze, custard, and white cream. Choose your favorite type of donut – yeast, cake, or long John, and indulge in favorites like red velvet cake with cream cheese icing, a yeast donut with maple icing and bacon topping, or a yeast donut with vanilla icing and Fruity Pebble cereal topping. Hours are 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday.

Silverton Donut Shop

7414 Montgomery Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45236  

Silverton Donut Shop is a no-frills mom-and-pop shop that serves up delicious treats, opening early in the morning to do so. Cincinnati Magazine suggests ordering a freshly glazed donut dunked in hot coffee and also says the star of Silverton's is the Honeymoon Donut, which has developed a cult following. The yeast donut is fried, glazed, and filled with your choice of lemon meringue or Bavarian crème custard. The shop has also been certified Kosher. Hours are 5 a.m.-8 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 5 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday, and 6 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Gadabout Doughnuts

1719 Elm St., Cincinnati, OH 45202

Gadabout Doughnuts is a craft doughnut shop that serves an interesting variety of flavors. Try a vibrantly iced blueberry lemon donut or go upscale with a chocolate lemon donut with shortbread. If you're ordering for more people than just yourself or would like more variety, order a mini box of eight of the shop's donuts in miniature size. Order online and pick your donuts up on Saturday from 7 a.m.-11 a.m. on Saturday.

Destination Donuts

59 Spruce St., Columbus, OH 43215

Get uniquely decadent treats at Destination Donuts, which uses quality ingredients that are locally sourced whenever possible. They're made without preservatives, additives, and other "fake stuff," and the donuts' flavor reflects this commitment to quality.

Buckeye Donuts

1998 N. High St., Columbus, OH 43201

Located across from The Ohio State University's campus, Buckeye Donuts has been a Columbus classic since 1969. Order a customer favorite such as the shop's namesake Buckeye donut, a devil's food donut plain or frosted, or a maple bacon long john. Hours are, as the shop advertises, "open always, closed never!" so you'll be able to get your donut fix around the clock.

Hole-y Moley!

Have a Drink For a Cause at Cutler Real Estate's 2019 Karma Keg Events!

Who knew helping someone in need could be as easy as enjoying a drink at a local brewery? At a Karma Keg, a monthly event hosted by Cutler Real Estate throughout Ohio, you can support local organizations by doing just that!  

What is a Karma Keg?

The Karma Keg is the brainchild of Vinny DeFrancisco of Cutler Real Estate. After hearing of a similar concept in Houston, he decided that such a wonderful event needed a place in the Midwest. Today, the Karma Keg is more popular than ever, bringing charitable beer lovers from all over Ohio together for a great cause. What is the great cause? We won't know until the end of the event. One of our favorite parts about the Karma Keg is that none of the charities are chosen in advance. As you arrive at the event, you'll make a donation to drink from the keg. Towards the end of the night, a name is drawn and all of the funds raised from that night are given to the charity of the winner's choice. Anyone in attendance (21 and over of course) is welcome to join in! Since its inception in 2017, Karma Keg has raised thousands of dollars for local charities, including the Refuge of Hope, Creative Living, the Habitat for Humanity, Canine County for Independence, and the Akron Children's Hospital! Your favorite charity could be next! The 2019 events will take place between April and September in beloved venues all across the state, from neighborhood breweries to upscale distilleries. Read on for the full schedule!
