From traditional jam treats to sweet creations, dive into SoGlos's round up of where to sample Gloucestershire's most delicious doughnuts – and we challenge you not to lick your lips!

The county may be home to the famous GCHQ Doughnut, but there are plenty of more delicious variants across Gloucestershire which deserve recognition.

Whether you’re a fan of classic jam, a seasonal special, or an indulgent sugar fest, feast your eyes on seven places to enjoy some of Gloucestershire’s most delicious doughnuts.


1. Baker & Graze


Located in The Suffolks area of Cheltenham, Baker & Graze is a hot spot for breakfast, brunch, lunch and coffees. A visit isn’t complete without sampling some of its baked goods, in particular its tempting doughnuts, with flavours such as chocolate mousse and honey comb; caramelised white chocolate and pistachio; and lemon curd with Italian meringue.


2. Pippin Doughnuts


Doughnut fans can get their fix with Pippin’s handmade treats, which are available to buy every Saturday at Stroud’s weekly Farmers’ Market. The unique fillings encompass regular flavours such as vanilla custard; lemon curd; and butterscotch with hazelnut; whilst seasonal specials include strawberries and cream, and lime and coconut.

Tucked away on Regent Street in Cheltenham, The Find is a coffee house selling tasty local delicacies. They offer a croissant-doughnut hybrid supplied by the Salt Bakehouse, which is based in Stonehouse. Although not strictly a doughnut, it is just as delicious. With past flavours including Eton mess, triple chocolate, and toffee popcorn, these ‘cronuts’ are sure to have you drooling.


7. Coffee #1
