Are you craving a donut? I'm craving donuts myself because I've been writing about donuts a lot around here. But seriously, when on a road trip, donuts and coffee are the perfect pit stop to please all the family. So the question is: where can you get the best donuts in Akron? Here are the three top locations you just have to try when in Rubber City.
Peace Love and Little Donuts
This location is my favorite to get tiny donuts that make it big. With a particularly charming history, the welcoming staff of this place cares to deliver only the freshest donuts around. On the funkadelic menu, my favorites are the salted pretzel, oreo cheesecake, salted caramel macchiato, coffee cake, and blueberry pancake. On the more classical menu (groovy and far-out donuts), the honey-glazed, and chocolate icing donuts are perfect and the apple. The size of the donuts is smaller than usual which allows you to taste a wider variety of those, which is one of the reasons why I love that place so much.
North Hill Donuts
North Hill Donuts is the classic local destination for donuts and coffee in Akron. The staff is always friendly, the donuts always fresh and the coffee always hot. One of the many highlights on the menu is the glazed donuts, I personally love their breakfast sandwiches on croissants too. The bacon with egg and cheese sandwich on a croissant is always a great start for the day. The timbits are always a perfect snack and my kids are crazy about those and the coffee is always hot and fresh. They also offer a wide variety of iced coffee and teas that must be tried.

Since September 2001, this place has been proud to serve to freshest donuts around town. Maple bacon cake donut is a specialty from this place and you have to try it, it's amazing. Their cream stix with homemade cream is fantastic as well as the cinnamon rolls. The maple with pecan cinnamon roll is my favorite one. From the lattes, cappuccinos, espresso, macchiato, fresh ground coffee, all of this, and more, anything to kickstart your day on the right foot. The staff is very friendly and welcoming.

When on a road trip and around Akron, these are my favorite places to take a break and enjoy great coffee and the freshest donuts. Have you visited these places so far? I'd love to know your opinion, please share in the comments!
