Instead of the ugly tie that he will never wear or the coffee mug that will only be added to his “collection”, celebrate Dad this Father’s Day with a trip to one of the Twin Cities best places for donuts.


Donut Shops in the Twin Cities

Glam Doll Donuts

This is one of my favorite spots to grab a donut in Minneapolis. Now with two locations on Eat Street and in Northeast, there’s double the sugary fun. For the bacon-loving Dad in your life, they have a maple buttercream & caramelized bacon donut. Play some classic games with Dad while he enjoys his coffee and donuts. Before you leave, make sure to commemorate Dad’s special day with a family photo in the photo booth.

Things to do with Dad after a trip to Glam Doll Donuts

  • Rock climbing at Vertical Endeavors
  • Have a beer at Surly. They have an amazing outdoor area where the kids run around as well as kids books to keep the kiddos happy while you wait for your table.
  • Enjoy the Bell Museum and catch a planetarium show.
  • Try to escape at Trapped Puzzle Room.

YoYo Donuts

Take a drive to Minnetonka for your Father’s Day celebration. Dad will be delighted to devour the freshly baked goodies. Classics like classic raised glazed and apple fritters and donuts with a twist like a maple bacon long johns and chocolate covered devil’s food will definitely be to be a winner with pops. And the kids will go crazy for fun flavors like cookies and cream, smores, and chocolate zebras.
