Go Nuts For Doughnuts, Rhode Island

The sweetest food trend of the year is taking the state by storm and our coffee breaks couldn't be happier


Once, in the dark days before Instagram, doughnuts were pooh-poohed as sugar bombs for kids. Not anymore. Rhode Island is having a bona fide doughnut explosion, with gourmet confections in unimaginably delicious varieties filling up our social media feeds – and our bellies. From the lines out the door at PVDonuts and Knead in Providence, to the square treats at 4corners Coffee in Warwick, to the only-in-Newport varieties like Marble House at Liberty Donuts, there’s never been a better time to taste-test your way through your weekend mornings. True Rhode Islanders will always love our Allie’s doughnut cake, but isn’t life a little sweeter when there’s a food trend like this?
