Want something a little sweeter? We know where to find the good stuff!
Tokyo Donut Shops: Doughnut Plant
Like many other places on this list, Doughnut Plant originated in New York City and expanded to Tokyo. These donuts are not only beautiful and delicious, but are also all natural, seasonal and made with fresh high quality ingredients. There are also no eggs, preservatives, or artificial flavorings or colors. Doughnut Plant even has some vegan options, which are just as delicious as the rest!
Flavors include: Cake Donuts – Vanilla Bean, Soymilk Triple Berry, Blueberry Cream Cheese & Jam
Bakery Donuts – Vanola Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, Soymilk Triple Berry & Jam
Average Price: These donuts range from 200-400 yen, depending on flavor and size
Dumbo Doughnuts and Coffee
You know you’re at Dumbo Doughnuts and Coffee when you see the pink signs and the line out the door. Tucked in a back street of Azabujuban, this coffee and donut shop is extremely popular for its oversized donuts and beautiful lattes.
In my opinion, they are not the best donuts on this list in terms of taste (a little greasy for my liking), but they sure do make for great pictures! And the coffee is excellent.
Flavors include: Lemon Poppy Seed, Raspberry, Matcha Cream Cheese, and Plain Glaze
Average Price: Most donuts are between 300-400 yen.
Nearest Station: 1-minute walk from Azabu Juban Station (exit 1) (plan your route at the link and click on the Google Map below for walking directions)
Floresta Nature Doughnuts
I first stumbled upon Floresta Nature Doughnuts in Kamakura and was immediately drawn to how cute the treats were. Luckily for me (and you!), there are a few closer Floresta locations throughout Tokyo. Each Floresta donut is organic, baked daily, and hand-decorated to look like different animals. Not all designs and flavors are available at all times or at every location, so it’s best to go earlier in the day before they sell out.
Flavors include: Strawberry (pig) and Chocolate (cat)
Average Price: These donuts are around 200 yen, but vary depending on flavor and animal.
Good Town Doughnuts
Good Town Doughnuts and Coffee was my first Tokyo donut shops experience and it did not disappoint. Freshly made every day, these donuts are chewy, soft and very filling!
The shop’s aesthetic screams hyper-Americana, making it the perfect backdrop to take pictures of your sweets. Although known for their donuts, Good Town also sells specialty coffee, ice cream, cookies, and a variety of lunch and breakfast dishes!
Even if it may not be their prettiest donut, I highly recommend the Nutella donut, and ask for it warmed up. The gooey Nutella filling running down your hand makes it more fun and delicious!
Flavors Include: Kyoto Uji Matcha, Maple Bacon, Hibiscus, and Smile Mango
Average Price: These donuts are on the pricier side, at about 400-500 yen (but totally worth it)
Nearest Station: 5-minute walk from Meijijingu-Mae Station (plan your route at the link and click on the Google Map below for walking directions)
If you are gluten-free, this is the Tokyo donut shop for you! Macanon donuts are made with rice flour from Kumamoto, making the texture very soft and rich. Unlike traditional fried and sugary donuts, these are baked and are not glazed. If you’re lucky, you can get a piping hot donut right out of the oven!
Flavors Include: Plain, Orange, Rum Raisin, and Brandy
Average Price: A plain donut is 180 yen and other prices vary depending on flavor
Nearest Station: 6-minute walk from Meijijingu-Mae Station (plan your route at the link and click on the Google Map below for walking directions)
This tiny Tokyo donut shop is located in the heart of Azabujuban. These donuts are unique because they are made with soybean paste, which absorbs less oil, so they are slightly healthier than the average donut (but just as delicious). They are a little small, so I recommend getting more than one.
Flavors Include: Vanilla Bean Sugar, Triple Berry, Matcha, and Sesame Seed
Average Price: These donuts start at 170 yen
Nearest Station: 4-minute walk from Azabu Juban Station (plan your route at the link and click on the Google Map below for walking directions)
SOAKS (OK Doughnuts)
OK Doughnuts are definitely more than just OK. These may be one of the more unique and interesting Tokyo donut shops on the list. All of the donuts in this café are organic and are made from 100% vegetable powder, which is packed with tons of vitamins and minerals. SOAKS also swaps out white flour and refined sugar for whole-wheat flour and beet sugar. These donuts are not only delicious, but they are guilt-free too!
Flavors Include: Ginger, Tomato, and Original (lotus root)
Average Price: Between 150-200 yen – surprisingly inexpensive for the quality!
Nearest Station: 2-minute walk from Naka-Meguro Station (plan your route at the link and click on the Google Map below for walking directions)
Streamer Coffee Company
Streamer Coffee Company is one of the famous Tokyo donut shops. They are also on Instagram for their Military donut, excellent coffee, and beautiful latte art.
Flavors Include: Blueberry Glaze, Military (coffee, matcha and chocolate), and Vanilla Bean
Average Price: Around 400-500 yen.
