I consider myself a bit of a “donut nut.” Once upon a time I loved a good Tim Horton’s Canadian Maple donut. But local donut shops have upped their game in the last decade (and well, the iconic Tim Horton’s donuts have left something to be desired the last few years). Below you will find some of the best donut shops in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. Whether you like sprinkes, fruit-filled, rolled in sugar or custard-filled, you will find plenty of delisious options below. I will cover Langley, Surrey, North Vancouver and more! By the time you get to the end of this post you will have plenty of choices to get your next donut fix!
Best Donuts in Metro Vancouver
Gourmet Donuts Langley
The best donuts in Langley come from a small shop located in Walnut Grove. Gourmet Donuts has been baking fresh donuts for the community for years and those who know, know that this is the place to grab a dozen!
If you are a fan of filled donuts, opt for their brightly pink-colored filled donut. Its maple floavored frosting and custard center is to die for! You will want two, trust me! They are also very well known for their apple fritters.
The Hive is Langley’s newest donut shop and it is a winner! They are so popular they have opened a second location in Fort Langley as well!
Location: 27253 Fraser Hwy, Langley
Lee’s Donuts has been operating in the Granville Island Public Market since 1979. Lee’s sticks to the classics when it comes to donuts, offering honey, chocolate glazed, and sugar rolled and the popular apple fritter!
Location: 1689 Johnston Street, Vancouver (How to get to Granville Island)
Honey Doughnuts North Vancouver
Probably the most well known donut shop in Metro Vancouver, people line up to get their hands on Honey donuts. They offer traditional flavors that will satisfy any sweet craving.
Location: 4373 Gallant Avenue, North Vancouver
Tasters Bakery Guildford
While not actually a donut shop, it is worth popping into Tasters Bakery to get their fresh made cream puffs. they are light, melt in your mouth and are often sold out!
Location: 10090 152nd St, Surrey
