Vanessa Vanacore

A good donut can surprisingly be hard to come by. Yes, there are 3 different dunkin donuts in Hoboken alone, however sometimes you’re just craving something a little more authentic.

So we put together a list of where you can find the best, most authentic donuts in Hoboken and Jersey City.


  1. Alfalfa

You’d probably never expect to find donuts inside this California inspired salad shop. However, to pay homage to the business that was once located inside the building, Alfalfa decided to continue to sell Schnackenberg’s delicious donuts. Schnackenberg’s was once known as one of the best dessert shops in Hoboken. Although they closed in early 2019 their legacy lives on as Alfalfa still offers their delicious treats. Their cream filled donuts are absolutely incredible as they do not skimp on the filling…

One of the most recognized Hoboken establishments, you simply can’t beat a donut from Carlo’s. Carlo’s offers all the classics like strawberry, glazed, jelly, chocolate frosted, and of course their infamous cannoli donut filled with ricotta topped with cinnamon glaze and cannoli shells, absolutely delicious.
