Kane’s Donuts, Saugus, MA

Sure, a plain, glazed donut is pretty standard, but Kane’s does it so well. Show up early to get it fresh and hot out of the fryer; the donut will melt in your mouth. From the outside, this shop looks like a house, but inside, it’s a cozy diner full of history: Kane’s has been serving the same donuts to this community just north of Boston for 55 years. While the flavors are pretty basic, the dough is rolled out and each donut cut by hand, helping give them that extra something. Be warned: if you show up after 10 a.m. on a weekend morning, prepare for slim pickings.
