Kane's Donuts continues to provide some of the best donuts in the North Shore. They keep coming up with new flavors and inventions. Love the mom and pop atmosphere of Kanes- they lose a bit of that when the lines are out the door but I get why! Got Milk??!

Kane's is a mainstay in the area, it's original residence is in Saugus but they also opened up another location in downtown Boston which offers a slightly different variety.

I had arrived early for a meeting so I stopped at Kane's for a donut and hot chocolate. There was a line of about thirty people waiting patiently for their turn at the counter.

Excellent! Friendly Service. Recommend the Boston Cream, Lemon, and Honey Dip. Expensive, but worth every penny.
