The ‘Hole’ List of Donut Shops in Greater Peoria



The donut has come a long way since its humble beginnings. What was once a less-than-fab pairing with a cup of less-than-fab cup of coffee at your local diner has now become the trendiest sweet treat out there. While the forever classic Old Fashioned-style donut will always be a cult favorite, the creations of different types of donuts has really taken this little fried piece of joy to a whole new level.

From being dipped in a maple balsamic glaze to having bits of bacon thrown on top and so much more, the donut has evolved into a work of art. Much like traveling to visit a favorite museum, we recommend traveling to try these top donut shops around Greater Peoria.
